Monitor Preferences

Set up the preferences for the selected monitor. Some options are only available with specific monitors.

NOTE: While some changes take effect immediately, others take effect when you close the menu.

LCD/EVF Left / HDMI Select

NOTE: This setting is available for the LCD Left, EVF Left, and HDMI.

NOTE: HDMI ports are only available on select DSMC2 expanders. For more information, go to to Input/Output Connectors.

Select to enable either the secondary LCD/EVF port on the camera or the HDMI port on an expander. The secondary LCD/EVF port and the HDMI port cannot be used at the same time.

LCD/EVF Left / MON-1 Select

NOTE: This setting is available for LCD Left, EVF Left, and MON-1 when a DSMC2 Production Module is attached.

Select to enable either the secondary LCD/EVF port on the camera or the MON-1 port on the DSMC2 Production Module. The secondary LCD/EVF port and the MON-1 port cannot be used at the same time.

Monitor Mode

Select an option for the Mode setting, which determines the elements displayed on the monitor:

  • Clean: Only the video displays. The Upper Status Row, Lower Status Row, and overlays do not display.
  • Overlay: The overlay displays. Overlays include the Upper Status Row and the Lower Status Row.
  • Mirror: The monitor mirrors another screen at the same resolution. You cannot mirror a screen that is set to Clean. The Mirror option is available based on the settings of the other attached monitors, and includes the name of the monitor that can be mirrored.

NOTE: You can set a maximum of four (4) monitors to Overlay at a time. To assign additional monitors to Overlay, mirror a monitor with the same resolution that is set to Overlay.

NOTE: When two (2) touchscreens are attached to the camera with the same resolution and one (1) is currently the control surface, set the other to mirror it and give the effect of having two (2) control surfaces.

Overlay

Select which overlay shows on top of the video. RED® provides preset overlays, which have “(RED)” in the overlay name. Create custom overlays in the Overlay tab. For more information, go to Custom Overlays.

Resolution

Select the output resolution for monitors (you cannot select a resolution for LCDs and EVFs, since the resolution is determined automatically). For more information about available HD-SDI and HDMI resolutions, go to Record/Monitor Out Ports.

Frequency

Determines the monitor frequency. Available frequencies depend on the selected monitor. The LCD resolution defaults to 60.00 Hz, which is the optimal refresh rate for the RED LCDs.

For HD-SDI monitors, the frequency depends on the project time base. For more information, go Record/Monitor Out Ports.

HD-SDI Auto: Sets the frequency equal to the Project Time Base, except when the Project Time Base is 47.95/48 fps. When the Project Time Base is 47.95/48 fps, the frequency is half that rate (23.98/24 Hz).

Display Preset

Select the Color Space and Gamma Curve combination for the monitor. For more information, go to Image Pipeline.

Tools

Enables the false color modes on the monitor. For more information, go to False Color Modes.

Flip Video

NOTE: This setting is NOT available on the DSMC2 RED Touch 4.7" LCD, DSMC2 RED Touch 7.0" LCD, RED Touch 7.0" LCD, RED Pro Touch 7.0" LCD, and DSMC2 Touch 7.0" Ultra-Brite LCD.

Flip footage horizontally, so that it is upside down. This setting only affects the monitor, and does not affect captured footage.

Framed Overlay

The video display is scaled down on the monitor so that the overlay items fit outside of the video area rather than over it. This setting only affects the monitor, and does not affect captured footage.

Auto Hide Menus

Hides the Upper Status Row and Lower Status Row. When this option is disabled, the video is scaled so that the menus are not overlaid on the video. When this option is enabled, the video is not scaled. This option creates a control surface on a monitor without scaling the video. This setting only affects the monitor, and does not affect captured footage.

To toggle display/hide the menus when Auto Hide Menus is enabled, perform either of the following actions:

  • Press the Menu button on the DSMC2 SIDEKICK.
  • Tap the touchscreen.

NOTE: Enabling this option on a non-control surface results in the menus never displaying on that monitor.

Flip/Mirror

NOTE: This setting is ONLY available on the DSMC2 RED Touch 4.7" LCD, DSMC2 RED Touch 7.0" LCD, RED Touch 7.0" LCD, RED Pro Touch 7.0" LCD, and DSMC2 Touch 7.0" Ultra-Brite LCD.

Mirror and flip (invert) the graphical user interface (GUI) and footage, effectively rotating the entire displayed image 180°. Use this setting when mounting a monitor or the entire camera rig upside down. This setting only affects the monitor, and does not affect captured footage.

UI Flip/Mirror

NOTE: This setting is NOT available on the DSMC2 RED Touch 4.7" LCD, DSMC2 RED Touch 7.0" LCD, RED Touch 7.0" LCD, RED Pro Touch 7.0" LCD, and DSMC2 Touch 7.0" Ultra-Brite LCD.

Flip the GUI vertically and mirror horizontally (not rotated). Use this setting when mounting a monitor upside down. This setting only affects the monitor, and does not affect captured footage.

Brightness

Control the brightness of each LCD and EVF. Move to the right for a brighter display; move to the left for a dimmer display.
