Do I need to update my monitor firmware frequently?

A monitor does not need to have a new firmware frequently like a software because it is a hardware. If you have any trouble to use your monitor, please ask us first to solve your problem.

There are two update files for a monitor.

1. Monitor Keys Firmware
2. Internal Monitor Firmware

User should Update Keys First, and Update Internal Firmware Next.

* TO UPDATE KEY FIRMWARE(.bin file):

Copy the file to a USB memory (in the root).
Insert the USB to the monitor.
Select Menu / System / Update Firmware / USB.
Two versions of firmware (existing, and new) will be shown.
Select the new firmware and update.
After update, monitor will restart.

* TO UPDATE MONITOR'S INTERNAL FIRMWARE(.hex file):

Copy the firmware file in a USB memory, on the root. (No sub folder)
Insert the USB to the monitor.
Select Menu / System / Update Firmware / USB.
You can see two versions, the current firmware and the new firmware.
Select firmware and ENTER.
The monitor itself will update automatically after Firmware update.


What is the 1:1 resolution-mapped HDMI-to-SDI converter?

It shows non-scaled sharp picture on the secondary monitor. Whereas some manufacturers produce HDMI-to-SDI converter with scaled second images, BON's true converter provides clean picture without blur.

On FM-05x monitor, function keys act as zoom function even if I assign a function.

Check if your ZOOM button is set to a default zoom. When you use zoom feature, the function keys act as zoom in/out buttons rather than their assigned feature.

Why do I need to use recordable monitor?

Your staff can preview and review shots on their recordable monitor without touching original footage on your camera while you are shooting. You can decide shots to be removed from the thumbnail list on the monitor. You can also create redistributable files quickly without encoding because the generated clips are directly uploadable to UCC site such as YouTube.

'Too Short Recording' message is appeared when I press Record button.

Check if SDI automatic recording is turned on. Once you turned it on, you should turn it off manually because it will be memorized in the device.

How do I buy additional monitor accessories for my monitor?

Contact the nearest resellers of us. They may provide you those accessories. Please contact us if you have any question via the Q&A page or E-Mail.

Why the resolution and frame rate on the monitor are different from my DSLR camera?

Some DSLR cameras such as Canon 5D Mark II generates different resolution and/or frame rate for output. The monitor recognizes the resolution and the frame rate coming from Canon 5D Mark II correctly.

There is no picture after connect a cable on the monitor.

It is strongly recommended to try with another cable, because some users use a bad cable. You also need to check cable connectivity when you use an old cable. In addition, you need to check whether you use the standard video format(e.g. HD Standard), because there will be no picture when you use non-standard or uncommon format.

I have another brand(T) 5.6" monitor and its power cable. Can I connect the power cable to FM-055F 5.5" monitor?

Although it is recommended to use FM-055F power cable in the box, you can still connect the T brand 5.6" monitor power cable(for units released after March 2015). However, the tally feature cannot be used, only the power can be supplied.
