A definitive hands-on test of the all-important daylight performance of current and upcoming monitors suitable for professional Steadicam application.

The centerpiece of the demo will be the “rotisserie” where all of the monitors will be mounted side-by-side on a rack to simulate the typical Steadicam monitor viewing position, with monitors able to be tilted and rotated in unison.

Products from the following manufacturers will be presented:

Boland (HD LCD)
GPI (greenscreen SD CRT)
LC (HD LCD from Bulgaria)
Lumavec/Blackbird (SD LCD)
Marshall (HD LCD, OLED)
Nebtek (HD LCD)
Tiffen (HD LCD, OLED)
Transvideo (HD LCD)
XCS (greenscreen SD CRT)

Many of the manufacturers will be on hand to demo their product and answer questions.

Attendance is free.

Sunday, June 14
12 to 4 p.m.
Camera Support
2827 N. San Fernando Blvd.
Burbank, CA 91504

As a reminder, this is happening this Sunday. The weather is not the best, it's likely to be partly cloudy but we have borrowed some of the big metal halide fixtures from "Terminator 4" to help blast some lumens onto the screens!

The event went beautifully. The Steadicam Forum has a lot of feedback from operators (not surprisingly there was not a single "winner"):

Also see the link in this thread for a picture and video of the "rotisserie".

Not daylight-viewable.

Well, as we found out, that was true for a few of the monitors that were there as well.
