SmallHD adds two new high-definition on-camera monitors to its 700 Series. The 701 Lite and 702 Lite offer 450-nit 720p displays and reportedly provide the durability and on-set versatility of SmallHDs latest generation of monitors, at an affordable price.
These new monitors offer an intuitive operating system with built-in professional software tools like Focus Assist, Exposure Assist, Waveform, RGB Parade, Audio Metres and more. With the Pagebuilder menu, presets can be configured to allow the shooter to quickly toggle between frequently used pages of in-monitor tools. In addition, multiple monitor users can design tool pages tailored for their specific shooting needs.
A full-sized SD card slot allows users to conveniently transfer images and LUTs. Users can opt for SmallHDs free 3D LUT collection, or custom LUTs that can be added and applied so crewmembers and clients can easily visualise what the scene will look like after post-production colourisation. The SD card also allows the capture of a virtually unlimited number of on-screen images from the monitor and an overlay of nearly any JPEG over live video.
Designed for the wear and tear of production, each HD screen is shock mounted and housed in a forged aluminum chassis. The 701 provides HDMI in and outputs, while the 702s feature both HDMI and SDI inputs and outputs, with low latency cross conversion between HDMI to SDI, and vice versa.
An exclusive feature of the 700 Series monitors is that they accept either Canon LP-E6 or Sony L-Series battery packs in the same battery slot. With a low 10-watt power draw, the monitors will run off a pair of Sony NPF-970 batteries for nine hours straight. They can also be powered from an AC adapter or a P-Tap/D-Tap off a large camera battery.
