The Canon DP-V3120 is a 31-inch professional 4K HDR reference display that realises an industry-leading white luminance of up to 2,000 cd/m2 (without loading characteristics) and high contrast of 2000000:1. It is able to faithfully express gradation and accurately display original tones, making it ideal for HDR productions in both cinema and broadcast.

With 12G-SDI terminals (four IN and four OUT), DP-V3120 is able to support multi-viewing of different sources simultaneously in a variety of input formats. The HDR monitoring assist uses false color to help visualise luminance for easier monitoring of footage.


Extraordinary HDR capability

Canon DP-V3120 is a 31-inch 4K HDR Professional Reference Display which provides industry leading 2,000 cd/m2 of full-screen brightness and 2,000,000:1 contrast ratio with exceptional accuracy and consistency, alongside extensive HDR monitoring assist functions. DP-V3120 is ideal for professional HDR production workflows.

Full-screen brightness at 2,000 cd/m2, 2,000,000:1 contrast ratio

Canon DP-V3120 provides an incredible 2,000 cd/m2 of full-screen brightness, giving you higher flexibility to create stunning High Dynamic Range content. With a Canon developed cutting-edge backlight system, precise LED control algorithm and advanced image processing, DP-V3120 is able to deliver a minimum black level of 0.001 cd/m2 and an outstanding 2,000,000:1 contrast ratio, ensuring accurate reproduction of shadow detail and brighter highlights.

Accurate image quality with flexibility for all production requirements Precise image reproduction is important for proper HDR monitoring. DP-V3120 can accurately achieve full range grey scale reproduction from low luminance to high luminance, as well as each R, G, B primaries delivering the appropriate luminance level. This level of accuracy offers greater confidence to manage HDR mastering workflows.

With support for conventional 2.2, 2.4, 2.6, and ITU BT.1886 gamma, as well as HDR Electro-Optical Transfer Functions (EOTF) SMPTE ST.2084 and ITU-R BT.2100 (HLG), DP-V3120 also supports BT.2020 and DCI-P3 wide colour spaces with faithful and consistent colour reproduction to meet both SDR and HDR production requirements.

Remote control

DP-V3120 can be remotely controlled by LAN connection using either a PC or tablet enabling access to the menu, as well as various display information.

View (initial screen)

Checking and zooming of the displayed image. Simple Channel and Function button operations.


Access to display settings and signal information.

Control / Setting / Link

Access to full menu controls, settings and link to other monitors.

Extensive HDR monitoring functions

Canon DP-V3120 provides industry leading extensive HDR monitoring functions, these enable users to visualise HDR signal parameters such as HDR Reference white, signal levels, and image brightness for accurate signal optimisation.

  • HDR waveform monitor / Vector-scope
  • Pixel value checker
  • HDR histogram
  • HDR false colour
  • Frame luminance monitor
  • BT.2020 outside of gamut view
  • HDR over range check
  • HDR / SDR comparison

Reliable and quiet operation

Canon’s innovative backlight system, with highly efficient LEDs and newly designed cooling mechanism, enables and maintains a high continuous luminance level, even at 2,000 cd/m2. This newly designed cooling mechanism achieves quiet operation with high brightness, ideal for environments such as grading suites.

Additionally, Canon’s innovative backlight system uses a full screen sensor array to monitor the backlight performance, while using an intelligent auto correction technology to maintain and adjust image accuracy during operation.

Advanced interface and operability

DP-V3120 is equipped with a 12G-SDI interface to fit the latest 4K production environments, enabling a 4K signal over a single SDI cable. With four 12G-SDI interface terminals, the display can handle multiple 4K signals, providing a 4-screen split view, single 4K image, or single 8K image (displayed in 4K) is also possible.

DP-V3120 supports Payload ID to identify signal’s transfer characteristics, and the Auto Setting function enables automatic switching of the Display’s [Picture Mode] settings. Additionally, signal monitoring functions enable DP-V3120 to identify signal errors such as lack of or wrong order of 2SI signals and CRC errors.
