Carbon is a professional multi-functional portable playback system. The system is based on 10-bit 4:2:2 HD SSD-recorder and 20-inch HD IPS-monitor.
The IPS technology allows users to see the true beauty of the image, without distortion of original color. The IPS-matrix maintains constant color temperature of the image without deviations, which guarantees the naturalness of color rendition. IPS-matrix monitors do not distort colors, which fully match those of the original image at any angle. This feature allows customers to enjoy the color accuracy all over the screen, regardless of the angle of sight.
