LilliputThe Lilliput A10: a 10.1in 4K screen on your camera

Monitor specialist Lilliput has gone big with the launch of what it claims is the first 10.1" 4K on-camera screen to market. What’s more, you can get it for around $600 from several online outlets.

The A10 boasts a native resolution of 3840 x 2160 and can accept up to 4K 60Hz via it’s HDMI 2.0 port. The panel won’t natively deal with the wider DCI 4K.

The panel itself is 8-bit IPS display and offers a 160-degree viewing angle It has a 1500:1 contrast ratio and provides inputs and outputs for 3G-SDI, HDMI, Displayport and a DVI-I (DVI-D, VGA) for connecting to a PC. The 3G-SDI limits SDI fed signals to HD, since several 3G-SDI connections would be needed for it to cope with 4K signals).

For image viewing and control the unit offers quad view, false colour, peaking, image flip, overscan and underscan.

It takes 12 to 24V DC for power, weighs 21.1oz and is pretty slim at 9.9 x 6.1 x 0.9”.

It may be prove on the large side for propping on a system’s camera, although perceiving the higher resolution will only improve with a bigger screen. The unit might also be used as a reference monitor on location, though it lacks the ability to load a look-up table.

We’ve not yet seen a model in action, so we’d welcome any user comments below.
