SmallHD Unveils OLED,
Reference Monitors
SmallHD, a Vitec Group company,
has announced its first OLED monitor, the
702-OLED. The 7.7" screen combines the
color accuracy and contrast ratio of an OLED
display with the feature set of SmallHD's
702-Bright. Able to produce wide-colorgamut color accuracy, it is an effective tool
for DITs and directors.
The new monitor displays a 24-bit
(8bpc) color depth with a greater-than-160degree viewing angle. The 1280x800 screen
has a density of 191 pixels per inch. The
adjustable backlight can provide up to 300
nits of brightness. Input and output ports
for both SDI and HDMI are included, with
cross conversion of less than a frame of
latency. A thumb stick and back button
provide the control interface, along with a
full-size SD card slot used to save frame
grabs and load 3D LUTs.
SmallHD's Pagebuilder OS control
enables any number of user-defined monitoring options. Tools such as vector scopes
and waveforms are standard. The exposureassist system supports both Arri and Spectrum-based false color, with built-in IRE
guides for reference. The 2x zebra bars can
be utilized to warn when reaching a userdefined brightness level. Up to three fully
customizable scopes can be displayed on
screen at a time, with highly detailed data
analysis. Five custom preset buttons allow
quick access to frequently used tools.
Each 702-OLED display is individually
color-calibrated before leaving SmallHD.
What's more, 3D LUT calibration is easily
installed with advanced color management
solutions like Light Illusion's LightSpace
CMS, or SpectraCal's CalMan. Any 3D LUT
can be loaded via SD card using SmallHD's
ColorFlow 3D LUT engine.
SmallHD also recently introduced its
first reference-grade monitor, the 1703-P3.

The monitor features true 10-bit color
processing to deliver more than a billion
colors. It covers 100 percent of the DCI-P3
color space, features a 1,500:1 contrast
ratio and 179-degree viewing angle, along
with SmallHD's Pagebuilder OS and large
toolset.
The 1703-P3 is designed to serve the
color display demands of both on-set and
postproduction color-grading professionals.
The monitor provides for one HDMI and
two SDI inputs, as well as one HDMI and
two SDI outputs. The fast and intuitive operating system allows ganging of on-screen
tools like HD waveform, vectorscope, false
color, focus peaking and 2x zebra bars
simultaneously, at the user's preference. A
Dual View function allows the user to monitor two input sources at the same time with
a side-by-side view.
The 1703-P3 has a bright 450-nit
display that supports any LUT workflow
through SmallHD's ColorFlow 3D LUT
Engine. This enables 3D LUT support, allowing previously created colorizing look-up
tables to be used on-set. LUTs can be
applied via the monitor's full-size SD slot.
This information can also be pushed downstream to other monitors.
Additionally,
SmallHD
has
announced a free firmware update that
adds an array of new features to increase
the functionality of its line of 13", 17", 24"
and 32" production monitors, including
HDR displays. The free update, as well as a
detailed list of the firmware's new features,
is available at www.smallhd.com/commu
nity/firmware-production-monitors.

GoPro has also launched the Karma
drone, which features a compact design
and includes an image-stabilization grip
that can be handheld or mounted to vehicles, gear and more. Compact and foldable,
the entire system fits into the included backpack. A game-style controller features an
integrated touch display, making it fast and
easy to fly without the need for a separate
phone or tablet to see what the drone sees.
Additionally, the 3-axis camera stabilizer can
be removed from the drone and attached
to the included Karma Grip for capturing
ultra-smooth handheld and gear-mounted

compatible with Hero5 and Hero4 Black
and Silver cameras. Karma Grip offers
seamless camera connectivity and control;

moments with the push of a button. Additionally, the stabilizer has a Tilt Lock feature
