The latest version of the FSI IP Remote utility is now available for DM series monitor and BoxIO users. It features enhanced functionality that allows you to easily resize ScopeStream windows and adjust scope trace color.
All new FSI monitors now support 47.95, 48, 50, 59.94, and 60P 2K signals. These are standardized signal formats users may encounter, but are often unsupported on other display devices. These additional frame rates are in addition to previously supported 2K formats making FSI monitors some of the most robust in terms of 2K signal support. Read More

ScopeStream for DM Series Monitors
The world’s first real-time waveform and vectorscope transmitted directly from your reference monitor to your computer without the need for additional equipment.
ScopeStream for BoxIO
Waveform and vectorscope transmitted directly from your BoxIO to your computer without the need for additional equipment.
All DM series Flanders Scientific monitors now feature 3 selectable HDR Preview modes. FSI CEO/GM Bram Desmet had this to say about these new capabilities: “Our aim with these new HDR monitoring modes was to allow users to leverage current technology for High Dynamic Range signal monitoring in production and quality control applications. While not intended for HDR mastering these modes do provide a simple and cost effective way to monitor PQ or HLG signals.”
Three monitoring modes are available:
- Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG).
- ST2084 clipping at approximately 300nits.
- ST2084 with a highlight roll. This setting may be particularly useful in production environments as it will allow operators to visually distinguish all code values present in a PQ signal.
Current DM250, DM240, and DM170 monitor owners can download firmware with these new selections for free here.
