Precision colours with 1500:1 contrast ratio
The Lilliput A10 has a 1500:1 contrast ratio and 400cd/m brightness ratio, giving you sharper pictures and rich colours. Enjoy more detailed images than ever before.
Connectivity for all video standards
Not content with simply 4K standards, the Lilliput A10 monitor features legacy connectoin for 3G-SDI, HDMI, and DVI-I (DVI-D, VGA), making it ideal for post production and field work alike.
Along with all of that the A10 also has boasts features like quad screen view, image flip, overscan, underscan, false color filters, peaking, screen markers, etc. However, the A10 does not support LUTs, and the screen won’t work so well in harsh sunlight conditions (look for a display hood). Considering other 10-inch or larger field-monitors are limited to standard HD 1080p resolutions at best, while costing more, the A10 is well worth it for 4K shooters.
The Lilliput A10 comes with a 1-year limited warranty and can be ordered from authorized resellers around the world. Here are the full specifications:
