We designed the Cinetronic 6.5"/7" High Definition monitor from the ground up, for the demanding needs of Steadicam operators. The Cinetronic monitor features ultra high brightness for direct viewing in full sunlight without the need for a sunshade, and passive cooling, which eliminates the need for cooling vents or fans.

Low power LED backlighting offers lower power consumption than CRT, without sacrificing brightness. We utilize LCD panels with the highest pixel density in their class, for unparalleled sharpness and clarity, so no details are missed.

Wide viewing angle allows the monitor to be run in "Table" mode, making it easy to see at all operating angles. The cnc machined billet aluminum housing is both lightweight, and tough, while keeping the elements out, and the display cool.
