While at NAB today, I came across a product that seemed fairly exciting, and I may try to test out this monitor for our purposes:

http://www.bon.co.kr/bonsub/BOND7.html

Of course, with the Cinetronic monitor coming out soon at 6.5" and bright as all hell, I thought of this as a versatile possibility for the lower cost market?

Product specs include:
- Transflective screen at 400 nits (again, not great, but transflective coating could make it surprisingly strong)
- Built in format conversion (HDMI to HD-SDI and HD-SDI to HDMI... I know I know, HDMI is the devil, but it's an OPTION)
- 7v-36v power draw
- screen resolution of 1024x600 (by my calculation, 7" monitor at 1024x600 ~ 169 pixels per inch)
- HD recording with H.264 encoding at 1280x720x30p. Now have a monitor that also records to 32GB max SD cards for instant playback.
- Price: $2400 (according to the gentlemen at the Bon booth anyway... Half that of the Cinetronic).

What are the thoughts and concerns?

400 nits is not nearly bright enough and transreflection wont help enough

Haven't looked at all the specs, nor would I likely understand most of them... So I'm not sure how this compares, but this is a similar idea, yes? didn't seen nits anywhere, but it claims to be daylight viewable
