IBC 2017: SmallHD 1703 P3X is a 17″ Daylight Viewable Monitor that Rivals OLED

SmallHD came to IBC 2017 in Amsterdam with a brand new production monitor. The new SmallHD 1703 P3X is their newest 17″ monitor, that is set to rival OLED, as SmallHD say. The new monitor comes equipped with a wide colour gamut display that is bright enough to see outdoors thanks to its 900 nits and Full HD display. Along with its 100% DCI-P3 10 bit reference grade colour accuracy, the P3X has an amazing viewing angle of 178 degrees both vertical and horizontal. All things considered, the 1703 P3X is set up to be an extremely versatile workhorse monitor for Focus Pullers, Directors, and DITs alike.

Each SmallHD 1703-P3X monitor comes pre-calibrated for DCI-P3 mastering, Covering 100% DCI-P3 with a Delta E average of 0.8.
