SmallHD Introduces Cine 7 Monitor with Cinema Camera Control and Teradek Wireless

SmallHD has introduced Cine 7, a family of seven-inch full HD touchscreen on-camera monitors with cinema camera control and built-in Teradek wireless video technology.

SmallHD's Cine 7 is a new monitor platform for professional cinematographers, with a 1080p, daylight viewable 1,800 nit display that offers 100 percent coverage of the DCI-P3 color gamut.

What sets this monitor apart is its integration of cinema camera control, allowing users to manage a variety of camera settings right from the SmallHD software interface. It will launch with support for a range of camera interfaces over the next year.

Camera control via the Cine 7 interface solves a number of production issues. Camera controls can be viewed through the electronic viewfinder. Teradek's wireless video transmission function can become an essential tool when the camera is mounted on a camera car or other specialty rigging.

The Camera Control Menu appears as an overlay on the video feed once assigned to a Page. Each Page gives the user quick access to sets of tools (framing, exposure, focus, etc). Operators can toggle from Page to Page via the highly responsive touchscreen interface.

Input and output of video with integrated audio is provided via 3G SDI and HDMI, with cross conversion between the two. Power is delivered via locking two-pin power connector (10-34V DC, 2A in) or battery bracket (Sony L Series included - Gold Mount and V-Mount available separately).

Cine 7 is available in different varieties ranging in cost from $1799 to $3699.
