Flanders Makes Its Move into UHD, OLED, and HDR Capable Monitors
The Biggest Name in color-accurate monitors moves into UHD, OLED, and HDR capable.
Flanders Scientific is hands down the biggest name in color grading monitors. You see nice monitors from other vendors that also do lots of other things (Sony, Panasonic, and LG all have popular, accurate monitors), but with Flanders, color accurate monitoring for post-production is its whole thing, and it does it well. While the company hasn't been aggressive in pushing into UHD/4K, most color pros would rather have accuracy than resolution, especially since at the normal color monitor size (24" or so), UHD resolution really isn't going to be a huge gamechanger.
Thus, it makes sense that when they do roll out a UHD monitor, it's 65", big enough to be a great client monitor, and probably big enough to see the benefits of UHD. In combination with all the other features we love from Flanders (12G SDI, highly accurate color, internal 3D LUT control, and more), this monitor is also HDR capable at 900 nits. It's not 3500 nits, but a colorist doesn't want to spend 8 hours a day in a dark room staring at a 3500 nit monitor anyway. Be on the lookout for these in the color suites you visit starting soon.
