Color Accuracy on a Budget

The Flanders Scientific 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 Hero Monitor’s Perfect Companion

The AM211 is equipped with a newly designed backlight that offers expanded color gamut capabilities, improved contrast, and better perceptual matching between our entry level displays and our top of the line DM and XM series monitors. The AM211 represents an entirely new price point for productions or facilities wanting to mix in more affordable monitoring while preserving a great deal of visual consistency with their hero monitors.

Color Management

FSI's Color Fidelity and LUT Interpolation Engine houses multiple 4,913 point (173) calibration LUTs for accurate and reliable color reproduction. Instantly select from Rec709, EBU, SMPTE-C, and custom user generated color spaces.

Additional gamma, peak luminance, and color temperature toggles further add to the versatility of this monitor.

AM211 features industry leading tetrahedral LUT interpolation for greater accuracy and visual performance than hardware utilizing trilinear LUT interpolation.

Calibration

FSI monitors come pre-calibrated from the factory and free recalibration is always available for customers that would like to send their units in to an FSI service department.

Quickly and easily perform your own 3D LUT based calibration with advanced color management solutions like LightIllusion's LightSpace CMS or SpectraCal's CalMAN.

Enterprise-level clients that own a large number of AM211 can also take advantage of FSI’s Volumetric AutoCal using a Minolta CA310. Contact us for details.

Video Scopes

A wide variety of scopes and meters are available. Display up to two scopes on screen at a time. Scopes can be positioned in any of 6 on-screen positions. When using two scopes the scope windows can be stacked horizontally or vertically depending on your preference. Video scopes work across all inputs, even DVI.

RGB Parade

Parade waveform. Adjustable parade intensity. Levels above or below 100IRE show in white for easier identification.

Horizontal Audio Level Meters

Display 2, 8, or 16 channels of audio arranged in audio groups or stereo pairs with real-time numerical display of dB levels per channel. Meters feature adjustable Alignment Level, Permitted Max Level, and Peak Hold Time. Select between True Peak, PPM Type I, or PPM Type II ballistics. Meters will indicate NO DATA if an audio group is not embedded in the signal to differentiate it from audio channels that may be mute, but still embedded.

Vertical Audio Level Meters

16 channel audio level meter display with adjustable Alignment Level, Permitted Max Level, and Peak Hold Time. Select between True Peak, PPM Type I, or PPM Type II ballistics. Meters will indicate NO DATA if an audio group is not embedded in the signal to differentiate it from audio channels that may be mute, but still embedded.

Measurement (8 & 10bit)

Get precise real-time YRGB measurements, both as a percentage and 8 or 10bit data values, of any point or sample area within your incoming signal. Set a spatial and temporal reference and compare with any other point to quantify the difference in values between any two points. Also quantify the difference in points as an F/stop value.

CIE Measurement

Visualize any point or sample area within your incoming signal on your choice of CIE 1931 x,y or CIE1976 u’,v’ diagrams. Values are shown relative to your current operating color space and regardless of diagram mode R’,G’,B’, Y%, x,y,u’,v’ values are reported at all times. As with the standard measurement mode a reference position can be selected and compared to any other position. The difference between current and reference positions is also quantified with a dE2000 value.

Markers

Choose from a wide assortment of standard markers and safety areas that can be displayed as lines, translucent overlays, or solid overlays. Lines and overlays have selectable colors for instant customization.

Don't see the marker you need here? Send it to us as a 1920x1080 .bmp file and we can add it in a future firmware update.

Crosshatch

Generate an onscreen grid overlay with the Crosshatch function to help with camera pitch and angle relative to screen content.

Custom Graticules

Create custom rectangular markers quickly with the Custom Graticules feature that generates four movable lines on screen. Graticule line position and span between lines is reported for easy reference.

Lum Coloring (Adjustable Exposure Check)

Adjustable false color display of luminance values. 4 adjustment points allowing you to establish specific target areas to be shown in false color or greyscale.

Timecode

Size and position adjustable onscreen display of VITC1, VITC2, or LTC timecode pulled from SDI signals

Tally Lights & Record Status Tally

Tally Light or on-screen indication of camera record flag status pulled from SDI ancillary data. Lets you know when your camera is recording without needing additional equipment.

*Not compatible with all cameras. Camera must output recognized SDI flag. AM420 and AM550 have on-screen tally only.

Zoom Modes

Pixel Zoom

For HD signals. Allows for highly adjustable artifact free zoom on any section of the image.

Zoom

For letterboxed SD content. Zooms in while preserving aspect ratio so that a 16:9 portion of the SD image is scaled full screen.

DSLR Zoom

Scales DSLR output so that only the portion of the image that will actually be captured to video is shown. Works with both SD and HD DSLR output.

Full Screen

Stretches the incoming signal to fill screen, built for use primairly with rasterizers that output 1024x768 signals intended to be stretched to 16:9 by a connected display.

CX Scale

Centered and zoomed-in display of the gate check output from a Codex ARRIRAW Recorder. This allows for easy fullscreen monitoring of the gate check output.

Overscan

5% Overscan Display.

Pixel Mapping

Allows for 1:1 and 2:1 pixel mapping of sources when their resolution is different than the native resolution of the panel. This feature is also capable of scaling 2K signals to fit or be shown 1:1 with the ability to move left to right so any portion of the 2K image can be shown 1:1.

SD Aspect Ratio & PAL SD FHA

Allows users to toggle from 4:3 to anamorphic display of SD signals. Can be combined with the pixel mapping feature for proper display of PAL SD FHA signals.

Anamorphic De-Squeeze

1.3x, 1.3x mag, 2.0x, and 2.0x mag anamorphic de-squeeze for use with HD signals.

Blue Only, Red Only, Green Only, and Monochrome

Blue Only, Blue Only Mono, Red Only, Red Only Mono, Green Only, Green Only Mono, standard Monochrome 

Onscreen Alarms

Allows for unobtrusive signal monitoring with alarm window only appearing in case an actual alarm condition is met. Available alarms include adjustable IRE threshold exceeded, RGB legal levels exceeded, video black or video blue on screen for extended time, audio loss with adjustable time-without-audio trigger setting, and audio out of phase warning.

H/V Delay

Horizontal and Vertical delay function with auto brightness increase to make analyzing vertical and horizontal blanking areas easier.

AFD Reader

The Active Format Description reader provides both a textual readout of AFD data as well as corresponding markers highlighting the information contained within the AFD code.

3D Disparity

A disparity view highlighting the difference between SDI1 and SDI2 inputs. Sources must be the same frame rate, resolution, and genlocked.

Still Frame

Pause on a single frame of an incoming source with a simple button press.

LED Lights

Allows users to turn off the monitor keypad's LED Lights for optimal viewing in dark envrionments.

Luminance Interval

Optional power saving feature especially useful in control room applications. Monitor will go into low power draw standby mode when no signal is present for the amount of time specified.
