SmallHD just announced two new monitors – their most accurate display yet – the SmallHD 1703-P3 reference grade production monitor, and a new 7-inch 702 OLED on-camera monitor with extra assignable buttons. The SmallHD 1703-P3 is the latest addition to the SmallHD Production monitor range, which already includes the SmallHD 2403 HDR, 1703 (alongside the Studio versions), and also 1300 and the larger 3200 series.
Sure, by now, most of us may be used to their 501/502 and 702 series on-camera monitors (and even their original DP4 monitor, which was quite awesome for its time), but if you have been monitoring (see what I did there?) the latest developments around SmallHD in the past year, you’ll see they’ve certainly been bringing to market a bit “bigger” monitors in response to growing customer demand for more rugged and robust larger production style monitors.
Their new SmallHD 1703-P3 monitor boasts “reference grade colour accuracy”, making it capable of 100% coverage of the DCI-P3 colour space, an impressive feat indeed. The 1703-P3 also carries the super-rugged DNA of the rest of the 1700 series Production Monitors that you may be already familiar with. The new 1703-P3 production monitor is priced at $3,999 and is due to ship in about a week.
So for those of you who’ve been thinking about the SmallHD 702 series on camera monitors, and wished that SmallHD would make an OLED version and give you some assignable user buttons and some more mounting points – then your wishes have been granted.
The new SmallHD 702 OLED is a wide colour gamut, slightly more sophisticated complement to the popular SmallHD 702 Bright. The new monitor features a smashing 7.7-inch OLED panel with 1280 x 800 resolution and Gorilla Glass protection, an ample 160+ degree viewing angle and pretty much all the pro monitoring features you could expect from a SmallHD monitor.
