The two monitors are a simple, but meaningful, update to the FSI product line, and direct replacements for the AM210 and BM210 respectively with one key distinction from the older units, an all-new backlight providing two significant measurable performance improvements:
Maximum colour gamut is now 96% of P3 compared to Rec709 maximum of previous models.
Better black levels thanks to a 30%+ increase in contrast ratio.
Additionally, the new backlight uses a very similar LED element that is found in their higher-end DM170, DM240, and XM310K monitors further bridging the gap between entry level and top of the line solutions.
At the same price as the older units, the AM211’s and BM211’s wide colour gamut, higher contrast, and new backlight technology will be a welcome addition to facilities and productions that want to mix in more affordable monitoring options while preserving a great deal of visual consistency with their hero monitors.
From Editorial to Video Village – Colour Accuracy on a Budget
The AM211 is an affordable and accurate professional broadcast monitor. Large enough to be used in an edit suite yet lightweight, durable, and compact enough to work exceptionally well as a field monitor.
The Tools You Need and An Image You Can Rely On
The BM211 is a lightweight, power-efficient, and colour accurate professional display with an extended feature set geared towards production, editorial, and broadcast. The BM211 builds on the AM211’s capabilities with additional hardware that supports popular features like live side-by-side viewing for two signals, look LUT support, dual-link SDI compatibility, our advanced Video Data Analyzer, HDR Preview modes, and much more.
Additionally, FSI has brought tetrahedral LUT interpolation to the BM211 to maximize the performance of both calibration and look LUTs. Moving from trilinear to tetrahedral LUT interpolation further ensure consistency with FSI’s higher-end DM and XM series monitors, which all use tetrahedral LUT interpolation.
