The Marshall Electronics V-LCD70MD 7″ On-Camera Monitor is a top-quality camera monitor with superior internal components and an advanced set of focus, exposure, and sound-assist tools. The display is a high-resolution, high-contrast, high-brightness display and is polycarbonate-coated for scratch resistant protection. It’s LED backlit for additional brightness and it is equipped with IPS technology allowing an enhanced viewing angle from farther and farther away. The operating system is icon-driven.
Connections consist of a native HDMI input and output, and 3G-SDI inputs and outputs can optionally be installed by screw-on modules. The HDMI input gives you 8 channels of de-embedded audio to pick up and monitor. You can monitor the audio on-screen on a dual-bar Waveform display or/and with headphones via the monitor’s headphone output. With headphones, you can monitor any pair from the available channels.
For mounting, a 1/4″-20 screw-hole is available on every side of the monitor. And for power, a power supply comes included and additionally any of a very long list of batteries can optionally be attached. (Please see the Specifications tab for the full list. Battery adapters are sold separately.)

- Lets you scale video that does not completely fill the monitor’s screen when connected by HDMI in “Record” mode on certain Canon DSLRs. You can scale DSLR video output, fill the screen, and eliminate black pillar bars with a variety of options to choose select, from Normal, to 3:2, 16:9, and Full Screen. DSLR Ratio Adjustment is programmable to one of the four user-configurable buttons on the front panel.
- Waveform and Audio Clip Guide
- The monitor incorporates both a Waveform display and Stereo Audio bars. These may be displayed separately or together in any one of the four corners of the monitor. The Stereo Audio is de-embedded from either the input.
- Zebra Clip Guide
- The Zebra function visually filters parts of images under a Lower Threshold or over an Upper Threshold. Data on either side of the filters can be displayed with a custom color. Zebra can also be inverted to filter the area between the Upper and Lower Threshold. The color selected for the Lower Threshold acts as the color for all inverted Zebra data.
- Input Crop with Auto Scaling
- The Input Crop function selects the area of active video that you would like shown on the image display. Select the desired Input by accessing the Adjust option on the screen.
- Custom Pixel-to-Pixel Panning
- Lets you select a custom Pixel-to-Pixel zone and use the COLOR knob to move your selection LEFT and RIGHT and the CONTRAST knob to move UP or DOWN. The SELECT button locks in your selection.
- False Color
- Helps set camera exposure. As the camera Iris is adjusted, elements of the image will change color based on the luminance or brightness values.
- Helps get the sharpest possible picture. When activated, the internal processor will display a colored highlight on the screen where sharp edges appear. When the camera operator adjusts (“racks”) the focus control / camera lens, different parts of the image will have these colored highlights. This indicates that this portion of the image is sharp or in focus. Final focus is achieved by racking the camera lens focus control back and forth until the desired portion of the image has the colored highlights.
- Adjustable Screen Markers
- A variety of screen markers in 4:3, 16:9, and full screen modes allow accurate monitoring of the different aspect ratios used in broadcast environments. User Markers allow for custom aspect ratio, cropping framing, now with a choice of four colors and variable width lines.
