SmallHD Unveils UltraBright HDR Monitors with 12V Lemo Power Support

SmallHD has introduced new 5-inch (model 503) and 7-inch UltraBright on-camera monitors that can be viewed in full sunlight to meet the needs of a variety of outdoor production situations.

The new SmallHD 503 displays a bright 2200-nits while the 703 displays 2500-nits, and both feature a 10-bit, 1920x1080 (HD) IPS LCD optically bonded Gorilla Glass screen with LEMO power. In addition, both the 503 and 703 UltraBright monitors offer HDR Preview. For more accurate onset exposure adjustment, users may select Camera Input Gamma in the settings menu and individually tweak footage white point and black point via data values in the form of a histogram.

The UltraBright monitors have SDI and HDMI inputs and outputs featuring built-in cross conversion. A Dual View function allows either two SDI or an SDI and an HDMI input to be displayed side-by-side—an advantage for A/B camera set-ups or viewing LOG and DeLOG footage onset.

Like SmallHD’s other monitors, a useful suite of tools is included in the UltraBrights, offering functions including 3D LUT support, HD Waveform and scopes, Focus and Exposure Assists, and PageBuilder OS that allows customizing menus to each camera operator’s individual preference.

Engineered for professional power solutions, the 503 and 703 feature integrated 2-pin 12V LEMO input for powering the monitor and Native mounting solutions for both Anton Bauer Gold/V-mount and Sony L-Series dual battery plates.

SmallHD UltraBrights are now available for pre-ordering in cost-saving Early Adopter Bundles, available until March 31, 2017, with up to $520 savings.
