Fitting in a 6RU design that's only an inch thick, the Blackmagic Design 17" SmartView HD Studio Monitor can be easily integrated into a studio or post-production setup. Through the rear inputs, SD, HD, and 3G-SDI signals can be displayed, with 1080p signals shown at a pixel-to-pixel ratio for critical sharpness evaluation. Resolution is auto-detected, so there is no need for regular menu-diving to correct the picture. Adjustments can be conveniently made by including the SmartView HD into your network for full software control.

Increase Functionality Through Software

The included software for the Mac OS X and Windows helps to connect several SmartView HD studio monitors to the Ethernet so that settings can be made remotely through a single location to all the monitors. Thus color matching the numerous monitors in a large video-wall becomes hassle-free with the SmartView HD Studio Monitors.

Built-In Tally

The tally borders on the screen make it suitable for live broadcasting. Red, green and blue tally lights help to communicate additional information to the users, something more than a simple on-air status.

Firmware for the SmartView HD studio monitor can be updated via the Blackmagic Design website for free. This provides future-proofing for compatibility with newer standards. The monitor currently supports video standards that are used in production and post production, like 1080p HD and 2K over 3G-SDI.
