SmallHD Reduces Size (and Price) of its OLED Displays

SmallHD, a supplier of camera-mounted video monitors, has announced a reduction in pricing for the company’s 7-inch AC7-OLED series of video monitors. Now starting at $749, the AC7-OLED is priced below any other professional OLED 7” monitor on the market.

The AC7-OLED is an industry standard due to its image quality, easy rigging and overall versatility. Whether mounted on a set of handles, light stand or on-camera, the multifaceted AC7 OLEDs are used as on-set client monitors, and are becoming the popular viewing accessory for drone pilots. Featuring a vivid, color-accurate 1280x800 display and 10000:1 contrast ratio, it offers the client, director or producer the piece of mind that their images are properly captured.

The AC7 offers built-in software tools such as Focus Assist, False Color, 2x Zoom, Frame Guides, and more. With rugged Gorilla Glass screens, aluminum skeletons, rubberized ABS housings and recessed ports, AC7-OLEDs are among the most rugged on-camera monitors built.

Due to their slim design, easy rigging and powering capabilities, the 14oz (392g) monitors fit nearly any workflow. SmallHD offers battery brackets for Canon LP-E6, Gold Mount Anton/Bauer, and Panasonic CGA-D54 or the system can also run off an AC adapter.

Available in two versions; the AC7 OLED HDMI with HDMI features component and composite inputs, now listed at $749, while the AC7 OLED SDI adds HDSDI to the inputs for $899 MSRP.
