The AM211 and BM211 are direct replacements for the AM210 and BM210 respectively with one key distinction from the older units, an all new backlight providing two significant measurable performance improvements:
Maximum color gamut is now 96% of P3 compared to Rec709 maximum of previous models.
Better black levels thanks to a 30%+ increase in contrast ratio.
Additionally, the new backlight uses a very similar LED element to that found in our higher-end DM170, DM240, and XM310K monitors offering a better perceptual match than ever between entry level and top of the line solutions.
We think the AM211’s and BM211’s wide color gamut, higher contrast, and new backlight technology will be a welcome addition to facilities and productions that want to mix in more affordable monitoring options while preserving a great deal of visual consistency with their hero monitors.
The AM211 is an affordable and accurate professional broadcast monitor. Large enough to be used in an edit suite yet lightweight, durable, and compact enough to work exceptionally well as a field monitor.
The BM211 is a lightweight, power-efficient, and color accurate professional display with an extended feature set geared towards production, editorial, and broadcast environments. The BM211 builds on the AM211’s capabilities with hardware that additionally supports popular features like live side-by-side viewing for two signals, look LUT support, dual-link SDI compatibility, our advanced Video Data Analyzer, HDR Preview modes, and much more.
Additionally, we’ve brought tetrahedral LUT interpolation to the BM211 to maximize the performance of both calibration and look LUTs. Moving from trilinear to tetrahedral LUT interpolation on the BM211 helps to further ensure consistency with FSI’s higher-end DM and XM series monitors, which all use tetrahedral LUT interpolation as well.
