SmallHD will debut 2 new production monitors at IBC 2016 in Amsterdam from Friday, 9th this week on through the 13th September. The two new 13-inch monitors are the 1303 HDR Production monitor and the 1303 Studio version. The new models join the already existing HDR and 17, and 24-inch Studio monitors from the North Carolina-based manufacturer. I’ll be attending IBC again this year so if you have any questions for these monitors, let me know in the comments and I’ll do my best to get the answers for you. Here’s the low-down on the new monitors. Much like the 17-inch and 24-inch HDR versions, the new 1303 HDR Production monitor features a field-proven and rugged design, is equipped with the Rapid Rail Mounting System, includes SDI and HDMI connectivity, a 1920 x 1080 170ppi IPS display, 1500 nits brightness and a generous 178 degree viewing angle.

The 1303 Studio does not have the HDR capability, and at 400 nits brightness would make a fantastic studio monitor for more controlled lighting scenarios. The 1303 Studio however as the other Studio monitors from SmallHD retains the 1920 x 1080 IPS display, HDMI and SDI connectivity, rugged design and versatility of the more expensive HDR monitors, and is of course cheaper, at $2,799 and can be pre-ordered from SmallHD here.
We’ll have more from IBC 2016 on these new monitors. Stay tuned.
