At NAB SmallHD will unveil their new line of daylight-viewable HDR production monitors in 17-inch, 24-inch and 32-inch sizes. Ruggedly designed, milled from billet aluminum, and light weight, these monitors are designed to drop straight onto a C-stand, table or cart, and the built-in “RapidRail” system enables quick mounting and powering of third party accessories. The monitor also features unprecedented brightness at up to 1500nits making it useful indoors or out.
Software features include HDR preview capability when used with high dynamic range cameras, multi-view mode with ColorFlow for viewing multiple sources with varied post-production LUTs applied, 10-bit color processing, 10-bit HD waveform and scopes, and automatic display calibration. Looks (in the form of 3D LUT files) and HDR can be applied and compared side-by-side to the raw SDI and HDMI signals using the multi-view function. Independently, a separate LUT can be sent downstream via SDI and HDMI for a client or director monitor. Finally, any active LUT will be documented when the image capture button is pressed, placing the captured image and the corresponding 3D LUT next to each other on the user’s SD card. The SmallHDR 17-inch, 24-inch and 32-inch models come in at $3999, $5499, and $7999 respectively, positioning them as a very affordable option for HDR capable Production Monitors.
