Blackmagic SmartView HD

New SmartView HD features an amazing 17″ LCD screen that lets you monitor SD, HD and 3Gb/s SDI video in full resolution HD. Just as impressive is its ultra slim, 6RU rack mountable design. Only an inch thick, it’s the perfect size for all your SDI monitoring needs. What’s more, SmartView HD can be conveniently adjusted from your Mac or Windows computer via the built in Ethernet.

 

Perfect for Live Production

SmartView HD is perfectly designed for building a video wall for monitoring all sources into live production switchers, and because it’s so incredibly thin, it’s even perfect for portable setups where you need to save space. Imagine having all your video sources displayed on large 8 inch LCD screens so you can see camera focus and quality! Now you can build full live broadcast presentation monitoring that’s small enough to be fully portable! SmartView HD is lightweight and thin, so it’s perfect for outside broadcast vans or even installed into portable monitor racks to reduce shipping costs of flyway kits!

 

Monitor Everywhere!

Good quality SDI monitoring is expensive and often makes it hard to put monitoring on all the devices in your racks, or control rooms because costs add up quickly. SmartView HD eliminates this problem and includes two large beautiful 8 inch displays in a compact 3 rack unit size! You get full loop though SDI connections, and ethernet network connection for setup. SmartView HD includes easy to use software for Mac and Windows so you can see all the monitors on your network for remote adjustments. That’s perfect when you want to color match all screens in a video wall remotely from your laptop! SmartView HD even includes tally!

 

International Power Supply

If you’re traveling all over the world, SmartView HD is perfect because it includes a standard 12 volt power supply with socket adapters for each country. Ideal for live location use where you don’t have engineering support, a standard 12 volt power socket means you can get spare power supplies from any electrical store. To eliminate accidental unplugging of power cords during live production or at other crucial times, SmartView HD includes a cable tie down point so everything is perfectly secure!

 

Smart Ethernet Control

There’s nothing more complicated than trying to match all your monitors by climbing all over your equipment and using little screwdrivers! Simply connect your SmartView HD to your Ethernet network and use the included Mac and Windows software to adjust all your monitors from one central location. The Monitor Utility software uses Bonjour to automatically find all the SmartView HD monitors on your network. You can save monitor settings from one monitor and copy to another, and when you’re working with lots of monitors, SmartView HD even includes an identify mode to help you find the monitor you’re adjusting! SmartView HD won’t suffer from drift because all adjustments are fully digital.

 

Greater SDI Compatibility

SmartView HD is designed to be used for broadcast as well as post production so it includes support for more SDI video standards, including SD, HD and 3 Gb/s SDI formats. SmartView HD allows firmware updating so it’s easy to upgrade to new SDI video formats when they are invented, and updates are free from the Blackmagic Design web site. SmartView HD includes new advanced video standards used in post production including 1080 progressive HD rates and even 2K SDI over 3 Gb/s SDI video. All video formats can be connected and changed, because SmartView HD simply switches in less than a second to the new format!

 

Broadcast and Post Production

In a busy facility you can never have enough monitors, and SmartView HD is perfect when you need monitoring for all your equipment. Install SmartView HD into your editing desks so you can keep track of decks and other video sources and create an exciting “mission control” environment which will blow your clients’ minds!
