A 7-inch glasses-free 3D field monitor was unveiled by Marshall as ORCHID. Offering 1600×1600 resoltuion at 720p video playback, uses the same parallax barrier in combination with lenticular hybrid technology similar to Nintendo’s 3DS handheld gaming console.


Marshall ORCHID 7-inch glasses-free 3D field monitor is desinged with realtime waveform monitors and color vectorscope displays for image quality control, hopefully this one is a better version than the 3DS that get complaints from users that have dizziness problem viewing the 3D effects generated from a parallax barrier panel.


For precision 3D calibration, the OR-70-3D provides dual waveform and vectorscope, along with various 3D analysis features such as checkbox, difference, blending, compare, and more. Integrated mux and independent loop-through eliminate the requirement of an additional external converter. Delay compensated horizontal mirror flip supports both channels respectively. Like most portable Marshall monitors, this unit also supports large battery adapters.

Marshall is aiming at professionals’ market, as the ORCHID comes with all of the connections and hookups required for use in accordance with a post-production display and high-end camera system. Expect to hear more during the launches by October 1st this year. Full specifications after the jump…
