Podcast: Flanders Scientific Part 3

“The Future of Reference Monitors”

Bram Desmet – CEO and General Manager, Flanders Scietific

Bram Desmet is the CEO and General Manager of Flanders Scientific, Inc., based in Georgia just 30 minutes outside of Atlanta.

Despite holding a B.A.in Philosophy from GA State University – and being an instrument rated airplane pilot – Bram ultimately followed in the footsteps of his father, (a 30 year veteran of the professional broadcast industry) when he joined DDA (a sister company of FSI) and then later Flanders Scientific. Both companies focus heavily on professional display technology.

As Managing Director at Flanders Scientific Bram is a vocal advocate of FSI’s core philosophy of providing professional broadcast products that strike an ideal balance between performance, features, and affordability.


In Part 3 of Bram’s Interview we discuss:

  • What is Rec. 2020?
  • Are there devices that can display the Rec. 2020 color gamut?
  • 4K Displays: How widely manufactured? How about true 4k vs. UHD?
  • The problems with high-performance 4K displays

Questions answered from LiftGammaGain:

  • What are the factory settings of FSI displays when they ship to the customer?
  • Do we need to recalibrate if we switch off the factory settings?
  • Why is the 17″ OLED more expensive than the 24″ OLED?
  • How to get better audio sync between SDI video and analog audio monitoring?
  • How to set the output of your camera to minimize audio delay
  • Will FSI allow ‘live grading without a LUT box’ on their displays?
  • Will there be a Mac or PC app for quick LUT loading on an FSI display?
  • Are there scaling artifacts we need to worry about when monitoring 4K material in 2K mode?
  • Do FSI displays clip out-of-gamut data?
  • Finally, there’s the ‘peanut gallery’ question (thanks Paul Provost)!
