The V-LCD70XP-HDMI is the latest update to Marshall’s successful and popular line of portable field / camera-top monitors. These monitors have been upgraded with even more features and versatility, but without additional cost. New features include cast metal front panel, adjustable backlight and markers, HDMI Auto Color Space and Ratio detect, manual gamma adjustment, Image Flip, 1/4″-20 mounting on all sides, and a more robust power switch.

These portable monitors are the perfect solution for DSLR and video professionals seeking to capture their best shots. Don’t be fooled by higher screen resolution or sizes. Our picture performance, feature set, customer service, and experience is why the industry’s leading photographers, videographers, and camera operators prefer Marshall over the competition. Our product is designed, engineered, and assembled in the USA.

This 7″ monitor offers standard features including a wide variety of formats and markers, 4 user-configurable front panel function buttons, RGB Check Field / Field Detect, RGB gain and bias control, 4-pin XLR power jack, and optical grade polycarbonate screen protection. Two other major features include Marshall’s industry leading FALSE COLOR and PEAKING Filters. This model also comes in 2 other major module configurations: 3GSDI (Composite, YPbPr and 3G/HD/SDI) and HDA (Composite, YPbPr). These units also offer the ability to adapt up to nine different battery configurations for providing mobile operation in the field. This option provides flexibility when using different cameras or configurations. Our large selection of battery adapters can be interchanged (or “swapped” out) by the end-user.

Having been working in the video business since 1988 I have amassed a great amount of knowledge of both the kit and production values over the last 30 years.
