The monitor is suited to the professional video creator that uses or owns a variety of cameras and camcorders and needs the flexibility of SDI or HDMI, accurate high bright and HDR, while not requiring external recording capability.

Shinobi SDI also features an innovative new multi-tool ‘Analysis mode’ that shows the image, plus waveform, histogram, vectorscope and audio-level meters all at once. This gives the operator a complete picture of what is going on in the image at any time, ensuring the creative look is maintained and look profiles and LUTs can be loaded via the in-built SD card.
