Shopping channels require a unique screen layout to differentiate instantly between a product and its commercial data. The monitor allows two flexible area markers to be set anywhere on screen.
When Rec.2020 colours out of Rec.709 or DCI-P3 colour gamuts are detected, the monitor indicates this with a zebra pattern over the relevant area of the picture. Gamut Marker is a convenient feature that instantly tells viewers to such colours.
