Aquatica has provided more details about its 5HD Monitor that has been under development and testing—including the May shipping date. The Canadian company says the monitor is first of a planned monitor/recorder series.
The specifications confirmed in the press release include 5.7” IPS LED backlit display, Full HD (1920x1080px) resolution, 460 cd/m² brightness, and a 1400:1 contrast ratio. What we didn’t know: Its aluminum enclosure is good down to 100 meters (330 feet), it will run for up to four fours on its NP-770 battery, and it’s not only available in red—black as well!
Accepting a 4K HDMI input, the monitor can be used with any housing (Aquatica’s included) that has an M16 bulkhead. The 5HD Monitor ships in May with an MSRP of $2,195. Backscatter is now taking pre-orders.
