Upgrade Path 2 for LM-2460W owners. Special 3Gbps SDI upgrade pricing for LM-2460W owners. Full details on upgrade paths below:

The Flanders Scientific LM-2461W reference monitor made its official debut at NAB 2011. This monitor is the successor to the popular LM-2460W. The LM-2461W has incorporated the following significant advances compared to the LM-2460W:

  1. Addition of 3Gbps SDI Inputs as standard equipment. This new hardware configuration adds the ability to monitor both Level A and Level B 3Gbps SDI video signals (SMPTE 425M-AB).
  2. Addition of DCI-P3 Color Space Support.
  3. Remote Control Alarm Monitoring Support.
  4. All LM-2461W feature updated LUTs for all color spaces based on measurement data from a new and more accurate reference spectroradiometer.

In most other respects the LM-2460W and LM-2461W are quite similar. Thanks to this similarity in other design aspects two upgrade paths will be available for LM-2460W owners that would like to take advantage of some or all of the LM-2461W enhancements. Both upgrade paths require that the LM-2460W be returned to FSI’s service facilities.

  1. The first upgrade path will add the DCI-P3 Color Space, update the necessary hex file for remote control alarm monitoring, load the updated LUTs based on the newer reference spectroradiometer, and include full recalibration of the monitor. This service is provided at no cost, but freight charges to/from Suwanee, GA are the customer’s responsibility. After this update the monitor model on the system status menu will read LM-2461W and future firmware updates will use the LM-2461W firmware files.
  2. The second upgrade path includes everything from the first upgrade path as well as the addition of a 3Gbps SDI Input board. This will functionally turn the LM-2460W into an LM-2461W and allow for support of 3Gbps SDI Level A and Level B (SMPTE 425M-AB). This upgrade will cost $995 (3Gbps SDI was originally a $1,995 option on the LM-2460W) in addition to all applicable freight charges to/from FSI’s service facility in Suwanee, GA. After this update the monitor model on the system status menu will read LM-2461W-3G and future firmware updates will use the LM-2461W firmware files. Customers that already own an LM-2460W with 3Gbps SDI option installed do not need to pay for this upgrade and will only be responsible for freight to/from FSI to take advantage of these new enhancements.

Customers interested in either upgrade path must first contact Flanders Scientific at Support@FlandersScientific.com or +1.678.835.4934 to request an RMA and schedule your update. Please indicate whether you are interested in upgrade path 1 or upgrade path 2 when requesting your RMA form. Updates will be scheduled to allow for 24 hour turnaround of all work to minimize your downtime. Only the LM-2460W is eligible for this optional upgrade.
