SmallHD to Release Four New 4K HDR Production Monitors

SmallHD has just unveiled the shipping dates and prices of its brand new 4K Production Monitor lineup. The monitor series in question consists of four brand new models including the OLED 22, Vision 17, Vision 24, and Cine 24.

All newcomers combine the 4K HDR post-production viewing experience with the rugged construction needed for physical production environments while bringing stunning color reproduction alongside extreme contrasts with infinite blacks and pristine highlights. The Vision series will ship in September, whereas the OLED 22 and Cine 24 models should hit the shelves in August 2020. Let’s take a closer look at the details below.

SmallHD OLED 22

OLED 22 is a stunning new entry into the reference monitor space and SmallHD’s new standard for color perfectionists. It features a >1,000,000:1 contrast ratio with an absolute black point, and 100% P3 / 135% Rec 709 color gamuts that generate beautiful, true-to-life color accuracy.

OLED 22 has virtually no image degradation at any viewing angle, providing a real-time image as vivid and pristine as the final output.
