Description Technical Specs More Info...
The Flanders Scientific CM-170W is a 17" Multi-Format reference monitor with 3G/HD/SD-SDI, Component, Composite, & DVI-I Inputs. This unit features full 12-bit video processing and a 10-bit panel capable of reproducing over 1.073 billion colors on screen. The CM-170W features support for virtually any signal format from NTSC/PAL to HD and 2K, including advanced 12-bit, 4:4:4, and XYZ signal formats. With its wide gamut 10-bit panel and advanced Color Fidelity Engine the CM-170W is essentially a more compact version of FSI’s popular 24” reference monitor, the LM-2461W. True 10-bit, wide gamut, native HD 17” monitors used to be very difficult to find, especially at a reasonable price. The CM-170W changes all of this by delivering compact reference grade performance at a truly affordable price.

Whether you are looking for a lightweight field monitor, a small format editing monitor, or a high quality rack mount monitor the CM-170W delivers exceptional performance at a groundbreaking price. Rack mount monitoring in particular has never looked so good as you can finally have a no-compromises, full HD, native 10 bit monitor that fits easily inside a standard 19" rack with the provided rack mount ears.

This unit features many broadcast monitor basics like a Blue Only Mode, Monochrome Mode, Markers, Safety Areas, H/V Delay, and Tally Lights. Like all Flanders Scientific monitors the CM-170W also comes standard with advanced features like 12 Selectable Scopes, Focus Assist, Time Code Display, Freeze Frame Picture and Picture, Audio Disembedding, Audio Level Meters, Artifact Free Pixel Zoom, Adjustable Exposure Check, On-screen Alarms, and Advanced Pixel Level Measurement. Best of all these ancillary features work across all inputs and formats ensuring that you get the most out of your monitor regardless of the source.

Thanks to its ultra-wide gamut LCD Panel the CM-170W has the unique ability to work in several different color spaces with an instantly selectable menu option. Choose between REC 709, SMPTE C, EBU, DCI-P3, or native Wide Gamut Mode. Color space management is handled by our advanced 64x64x64 Matrix 3D LUT Color Fidelity Engine ensuring a high degree of accuracy in any mode. Additional instantly selectable gamma, peak luminance, and color temperature presets add to the flexibility of this unit making it suitable for a wide variety of applications and environments.

The CM-170W is equipped with 3Gbps SDI (SMPTE 425M-AB) inputs, which provide support of advanced formats including 4:4:4 RGB, 4:4:4 YCbCr, and 4:4:4 XYZ signals. With support of both Level A and Level B 3Gbps SDI the CM-170W is compatible with virtually all 3Gbps SDI sources and provides many advanced viewing modes for multiplexed (2 x SMPTE 292M) Level B signals as explained here.

At just 6.4 lbs and 24 Watts power consumption the CM-170W is incredibly well suited as a field monitor. The monitor can be powered via AC (100~240V) or DC (12V 4 PIN XLR) connectors. Optional accessories like the CBH17 (Carrying Bag with Integrated Hood) and MM20 (VESA to C-Stand Adapter) provide additional versatility for field use. The CM-170W also comes standard with a basic desktop stand and rack mount ears (7 RU) and is a good fit for virtually any desktop or rack mount application.
