I'm actually going to be in Switzerland for christmas this year and asked to come by and demo the monitor. As far as I know the 2900 dollar monitor is only 400 nits. They haven't put their 1000 nit monitor on their site yet. It is pretty much the same exact monitor aside from the brightness. The price for the 1000 nit was closer to $3800...
It does seem nice though. It has a DVI port so you can use an HDMI cable with an adapter to DVI( no extra convertor box to attach) for those cameras that HDMI outputs all the information you would like to see.
I saw the 400 nit version at NAB last year. It is a very sturdy monitor. very high quality.
No user buttons which is unfortunate but when I am in Switzerland in a week or so I'll go through the menu system and see if it's cumbersome or simple. I don't think it comes with frame-lines. But don't quote me yet.
I think the Addition of high brightness to this monitor makes it a contender for steadicams.
I"ll post a full review of the monitor after Christmas. If they let me I'll take lots of pictures.
