In designing these displays, the priority was to achieve the full performance and capabilities required by broadcast professionals. These include:
No compromises in core features like color fidelity, resolution, precise imaging, and picture quality
Completeness fits into most of today’s environments without additional options needed
Future proof platform design which allows adaptation to emerging technologies and upcoming standards
Fast and easy setup and operation, even in stressful life applications
The HDQLINE series of multistandard displays are ideally suited for critical high-end applications – wherever the brilliance and sharpness of ultra-high resolution images together with usability and future proofness are required.

Quad Split

All HDQLINE Displays include a Multi-viewer function with low processing delay. Each quadrant can be 1x UMD, 2x Tally or Border Tally and 4 Channel Audio Level Meters.

HDR preview option

A set of EOTF (electro optical transfer function) curves, perfectly adapted to the LCD panel build in the display, render images to appear closer to how the human eye perceives the real world compared to existing SDR displays. Up to 8 different curves are available in the display. The list of supported HDR formats include HLG, PQ, Sony S-Log3, and ARRI LogC.
EOTF Split, split screen function, allows to compare the impact of 2 different EOTFs on a single image (available on UHD models).


HDQLINE displays can display a variety of additional information needed by professionals. This includes up to 16 Channel Audio Level Meters (Vertical/Horizontal), static and dynamic UMD, Timecode (ATC) display, TV Standard display. Furthermore, various markers can be used, e.g. for aspect ratio, safe area and center. In addition to norm settings according to SMPTE and EBU specifications, each marker can be set manually.

Waveform / Vectorscope

Real time Waveform and Vectorscope. Select between Y, Cb, Cr, R, G, B Waveform and different sizes of scopes. Vector Scale Bt.601, Bt.709 and Bt.2020. Locate the scopes anywhere on the screen.

False Color Luminance

Input signal’s luminance level is analyzed and gets marked with a false color. This can be used by the operator to quickly identify and adjust the luminance level of objects. There are 8 predefined sets with different scales (Nits, Candela, Code Values, Stop Units) aviable. 8 more sets are fully user configurable via DCS+ software. This feature works for UHD/4K and HD signals.

Tally and Remote Control

HDQLINE Displays integrate easily with existing Tally systems and controllers. Dynamic and Static UMD / Tally support is provided via Ethernet network protocols (sonoVTS IMD / TALLY protocol / Image Video / TSL / Ember+) or up to 8 GPI contact closures, each GPI is individual configurable. In addition, an optional hardware control panel is available.

Display control software DCS+

The display control software is the graphically-orientated, intuitive and user-friendly tool to control all parameters on individual displays as well as predefined groups of displays in a larger system like direction room or OB van. The display control software gives a perfect overview of the settings of each display.

Automatic colour adjustment Match+

True and stable colour reproduction under various conditions is essential for many applications. The newly developed Match+ plugin for our display control software, based on the experience of the renowned colour calibration tools of HD2LINE and QLine series, Match+ is the ultimate tool for automatic colour space adjustment. It supports many professional spectro radiometer measurement kits like Minolta CS200, CS2000, Klein K-10 or Jeti specbos 1211, etc.

This optional board adds 2x 12G SDI single link UHD/4K inputs to the HDQLINE display platform. To widen the application area one input supports SFP modules, thereby allowing fiber or copper connection.
