SmallHD Adds an R And Unleashes New Line of HDR Ready Production Monitors

by planetMitch1 Comment

I know a lot of filmmakers pack a large production monitor with them on shoots and several of my friends are dang picky about which monitor they take – they want accurate colors. 

Well, SmallHD has announced their getting into this bigger screen market with their new line of 17″, 24″ and 32″ HDR ready SmallHDR production monitors.

They're touting bright, rugged screens with “a revolutionary accessory rail system and convenient table stand with built-in C-stand mount” which sounds intriguing.

SmallHD's Color Intelligence Engine automatically calibrates the monitor by self-generating a 3D calibration LUT for the display. This should improve color accuracy greatly and that's what most of the people I know are looking for in a monitor.

The 32″ monitor is the only one with the 1500 NITs of brightness while the others are still high at 1000 NITs.

Pricing and availability for these SmallHDR monitors will be announced Q2 2016.

We're looking forward to seeing these at NAB!
