IBC 2017: SmallHD debuts brighter daylight viewable 17″ monitor

Due to the success of its daylight viewable monitors, SmallHD introduces its brightest, full-featured 17” reference grade monitor ever made, the 1703-P3X. Double the brightness of other 17” reference monitors, it is at home in full sunlight, and covers 100 percent of the DCI-P3 and Rec 709 color spaces.

The 1703-P3X features a 1500:1 contrast ratio and a 179° viewing angle, along with SmallHD’s Pagebuilder OS toolset. The new monitor is being unveiled at IBC (stand 12.E65).

“This monitor is both bright, extremely color accurate, and offers true reference grade cinema color,” said Wes Philips, SmallHD co-founder. “Covering 100% of the DCI-P3 color space, it’s the perfect monitor for DIT’s on-set or location and for mastering in post.”

Designed to serve the demanding color display requirements of both on-set and post production color grading professionals, the 1703-P3X comes pre-calibrated for DCI-P3 and Rec 709 for both broadcast use and cinema mastering. Covering 100% DCI-P3 with a Delta E average of <0.5, it offers easy installation of the user’s own 3D LUT calibration with advanced color management solutions like Light Illusion’s, LightSpace CMS, or SpectraCal’s CalMAN.

The 1703-P3X features one HDMI and two SDI inputs plus one HDMI and two SDI outputs. The fast and intuitive operating system allows ganging of on-screen tools like HD waveform, vectorscope, false color, focus peaking and 2x zebra bars simultaneously. Its Dual View function allows users to monitor two input sources simultaneously with side-by-side viewing.

The new monitor’s bright display supports any LUT workflow through SmallHD’s ColorFlow 3D LUT Engine which enables 3D LUT support, allowing previously created look-up tables to be used on-set. LUTS can be applied via the monitor’s full-size SD slot. This information can also be pushed downstream to other monitors. A LUT altered on-set with third party software, such as LiveGrade, can be viewed on the monitor and/or downstream monitors, and uploaded to an SD card for reference in post.

The 1703P3X is constructed of rugged milled aluminum to withstand the rigor of production. It features numerous ¼-inch and 3/8-inch threaded mounting points, a VESA mount and RapidRail accessory mounting system. The monitor can easily power wireless accessories like Teradek with built in 12V 2-pin LEMO auxiliary power. It can be powered via 4-pin XLR by optional V-mount and Gold-mount battery packs for wireless operation.

MSRP for the 1703-P3X is $3,999.

NAB 2016: SmallHD announces production monitor prices and proves value with slow-mo durability demo

SmallHD announces pricing of their new daylight-viewable SmallHDR Production Monitors and releases a new video on SmallHDR.com featuring extreme durability tests of the displays in super slow motion.

“These are unbelievably rugged production monitors, and the same level of build quality is demonstrated in every model.” says Wes Phillips, SmallHD Co-Founder, “Downtime can be a very expensive side-effect of a monitor built without durability in mind, so we took it upon ourselves to prove that these are the toughest monitors on the market.”

Facing off against baseball bats, off-road vehicles, .40 caliber handguns and more, SmallHD’s new HDR production monitors are truly put through the paces in the latest video found on SmallHDR.com. Demonstrating how milled billet aluminum housings and thick screen protection can prevent damage in even the most severe production accidents, extreme slow-motion shots reveal every bend and twist as the monitors fight to survive each punishing test.

Beyond durability, these bright displays are designed to instill a huge level of confidence through their daylight-viewing ability, extensive software toolset, and groundbreaking accessory flexibility—making ruggedness just a piece of the value they bring to the industry.

The SmallHDR 17-inch, 24-inch and 32-inch models come in at $3999, $5499, and $7999 respectively, positioning them as the most affordable line of HDR capable Production Monitors on the market. All three models and a full array of custom accessories will be available on SmallHD.com and through SmallHD authorized resellers May 2016.
