This RED DSMC2 Touch 7.0” Ultra-Brite LCD Monitor promises to be one of brightest LCDs on the market with 2,200 nits of brightness at 1920x1200 resolution to provide clear viewing in even the brightest of conditions.

Those thick bezels...Surprised they aren't trying to make their products lighter, thinner and less bulky overall. 2200nits is insanely bright though! The Atomos flagship 7" monitors are only 1500nits.

The only other ones I know of are the Small HD's Ultra Bright Monitors which also feature 2.200 nits. When they released it, they claimed the title as world's brightest monitor.
