Perfect SDI Monitoring The Blackmagic Design SmartView HD features a large 17 inch LCD screen in a compact 6 rack unit design that's less than an inch thick. SmartView HD handles SD, HD and 3 Gb/s SDI video standards, and all screens can be remotely adjusted via your Ethernet network, so setup is much simpler when users need to color match all the monitors in a large video wall setup. SmartView HD can be installed into equipment racks for local monitoring in post production, for multi-monitor video walls in master control rooms or for camera monitoring for production switchers! Because SmartView HD is affordable, and supports SDI video standards in SD, HD and even 2K, it's the perfect solution to install anywhere customers need more monitoring. SmartView HD is designed to be used for broadcast as well as post production so it includes support for more SDI video standards, including all 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 automatically changes in less than a second to the new format. SmartView HD Features Large 17 inch LCD display in a 6 rack unit size chassis, less than 1 inch thick. SDI/HD-SDI/3G-SDI input with re-clocked loop outputs. Ethernet input with loop output for connecting to computers for central adjustments. Tally input allows red, green or blue tally indication. Control software panel included free for Windows and Mac OS X. Ideal for use in broadcast, post production and camera monitoring for switchers. LCD Screens and RGB Tally SmartView and SmartScope monitors feature super clear LCD screens with tally so it's the perfect solution for live broadcasts. Unlike a simple tally light, SmartView includes tally borders displayed in green, red or blue to signify preview, on air, or recording. This means during live production you will always know when you are recording or on-air, or you can see which camera is cued up on your switcher's preview output. Tally is connected via an industry standard parallel pin connector on the rear panel so you get full compatibility with switchers or automation systems. Central Ethernet Control Now you can control all your monitors from a single location and make sure all your monitors match each other for a consistent look and an accurate display of the image. Simply connect SmartView to your Ethernet network and use the included Mac and Windows SmartView Utility software to adjust all your monitors. The SmartView Utility uses the common networking software, Bonjour, to automatically find all the monitors installed on your network and display them in a list for you to select. You can even plug direct into the monitor using USB to setup ethernet settings. You can save monitor settings, or copy settings from one monitor to another to make setup fast. When you're working with lots of monitors, SmartView Utility even includes an identify mode to help you find the monitor you want to adjust! All adjustments are set digitally which means SmartView monitors won't suffer from drift over time or during travel!
