NAB 2019: SmallHD Announces Their Camera-Controlled 7″ Monitor
SmallHD is making waves at NAB (as usual) with the announcement of their new 7-inch monitor with ethernet camera control.
SmallHD’s bright monitors will save us all. I’ve said that many times about many different products, but being able to look at your footage and trust what you shot — no matter the conditions outside — benefits filmmakers of any caliber.
SmallHD’s latest offering, the Cine 7, is even more user-friendly than their previous releases. You can now control the camera through an ethernet cable. Right now, the monitor will only be available for larger cameras like the ALEXA Mini, LF, and Amira, but others will be added later, including Sony and Canon.
Let’s take a look at the video SmallHD released to announce the new monitor.
So, obviously, this is pretty impressive, and I cant wait to see when and how they announce the later models (compatible with Sony cameras).
The Cine 7 offers the durability and flexibility required by demanding professionals. With a lightweight milled aluminum frame and several 1/4″-20 mounting points, the 7-inch monitor is ready to perform on any rig and in any environment. Cine 7 includes several 3G-SDI and HDMI inputs and outputs, as well as signal cross conversion. Power options include a locking 2-pin connector and interchangeable battery brackets (Gold, V, and Sony L series). An Ethernet port allows for camera control connectivity.
