The Blackmagic Design SmartView 4K is the world’s first full resolution rack mount Ultra HD broadcast monitor with 12G-SDI for native display of up to 2160p60. Supporting the most up to date Ultra HD resolutions, plus automatically switching to SD and HD-SDI formats using high quality Teranex processing for a sparkling display, it is a truly professional broadcast monitor. The machined metal design incorporates a built in control panel for utilising features like 3D LUTs, H/V delay, blue only, zoom, focus peaking, customisable frame markers and more, either from the front panel or via external ethernet. SmartView 4K supports VESA mounting so you can fit on articulated monitor arms or in a rack.

Adaptable enough to be deployed in the largest broadcast facility, mobile live production or on set for feature film production, Blackmagic Design’s SmartView 4K is an exceptionally high quality monitor that is compatible with all SD, HD and Ultra HD video formats. Including both universal AC power as well as 12V DC power inputs, monitor on battery power or plug into standard AC mains power. Mount in racks, outside broadcast vehicles or even on walls and articulated arms thanks to a six rack unit sized design and VESA compatibility. SmartView 4K is the ideal professional monitor for any broadcast facility, mobile broadcast truck, or even on location fly away kits.

SmartView 4K’s professional broadcast connections are side mounted, slim lining the design so it can be installed into tight locations. Standard 12G-SDI BNC connectors mean the cables won’t fall out from vibrations when featured in a broadcast truck. With both DC and AC power you get the flexibility of both portable or studio use. To align more than a single monitor or enable remote setup, SmartView 4K can also be controlled via Ethernet.

SmartView 4K will handle monitoring from all your SD, HD-SDI, 3G-SDI, 6G-SDI and 12G-SDI sources – it’s truly future proof. The SDI inputs automatically detect input video standard and re-clock instantly. The full resolution Ultra HD monitor allows the user to see every single pixel in a 3,840 x 2,160 resolution SDI input, even when running at a faster 60p frame rate. This fast frame rate support is perfect for fast motion such as sports.

With an incredibly thin lightweight design, the Blackmagic Design SmartView 4K delivers amazing picture quality. The super bright LCD screen looks great from any viewing angle and, because the controls are all digital, your settings won’t change or drift over time. It’s also possible to load custom 3D LUTs for monitor calibration and on set viewing. When monitoring SD or HD signals, the built in Teranex processor uses advanced patented and proprietary PixelMotion™ algorithms to automatically de-interlace and scale video up to Ultra HD resolution.
