Blackmagic Design Smartview HD
Large 17 inch full HD 6RU SDI/HD-SDI/3G SDI monitoring with central software control.
New SmartView HD features an amazing 17" LCD screen that lets you monitor SD, HD and 3Gb/s SDI video in full resolution HD. Just as impressive is its ultra slim, 6RU rack mountable design. Only an inch thick, it’s the perfect size for all your SDI monitoring needs. What's more, SmartView HD can be conveniently adjusted from your computer via Ethernet.
The Blackmagic Design 17" SmartView HD Studio Monitor can be simply incorporated into a studio or post-production setup thanks to a 6RU design that's only an inch thick. 1080p signals are displayed at a pixel-to-pixel ratio for critical sharpness assessment and SD, HD, and 3G-SDI signals can be displayed through the rear inputs also. Resolution is auto-detected – it’s not necessary to navigate complex menus in order to correct the picture. Convenient remote adjustments can be made by including the SmartView HD on your network, for full software control.
Several SmartView HD studio monitors can be connected via ethernet thanks to the included software for Mac OS X and Windows. This means that settings can be adjusted remotely at a single location to all monitors. Colour matching numerous monitors in a large video-wall becomes convenient with SmartView HD Studio Monitors.
The Blackmagic Design 17" SmartView HD Studio Monitor is suitable for live broadcasting because of the tally borders on the screen. Red, green and blue tally lights help to communicate extra data beyond simple on-air status to the user.
Firmware updates for the SmartView HD studio monitor can be downloaded on the Blackmagic Design website, for free. The monitor currently supports video standards that are used in production and post production, like 1080p HD and 2K over 3G-SDI.
