Technology Guides

SmartView monitors are the perfect choice to add SDI monitoring anywhere you need it. You can use them for broadcast, post production, on set monitoring, flyaway kits, broadcast trucks and more. When you're working with live production switchers you can build a video wall of camera monitors in your control room and see all your sources. You can mix and match different SmartView models in a rack for a customized monitoring solution where you can view your images and choice of scope displays side by side.

Perfect Monitoring

SmartView monitors are ideal for high end broadcast monitoring because they feature high quality filtering and scaling, so you retain fine detail in the image. The fully digital design with high quality SDI inputs ensures precise color that’s easy to manage across multiple displays. SmartView includes ethernet so you can connect them to your network and centrally control all your monitors from a single computer using the SmartView software utility. SmartView also includes integrated tally that is fully compatible with many switchers or automation systems.

Ultra Thin Design

SmartView monitors feature an elegant front panel that is designed to allow multiple SmartView HD, SmartView Duo and SmartScope Duo 4K models to be mounted next to each other to create a beautiful wall of monitors that share the same appearance and width. Lightweight and ultra thin, SmartView is perfect for broadcast trucks and fly away kits. When you need to mount SmartView in the extreme top or bottom of an equipment rack, the units can be rotated upside down and the images will automatically flip to provide the optimum viewing angle.

Greater SDI Compatibility

SmartView supports SD, HD and 3G-SDI formats SmartView has been designed for broadcast as well as post production and includes support for multiple SDI video standards, including SD, HD and 3G-SDI formats. They support new advanced video standards used in post production including 1080 progressive HD rates and even 2K over 3G-SDI. All video formats can be connected and changed at any time, because SmartView will automatically switch in less than a second to the new format.

Easy Adjustments

SmartView connects via ethernet and all monitors can be adjusted remotely from one location, making it easy to match monitors. The SmartView software utility for Mac OS X and Windows lets you make changes even with a laptop and copy settings from one monitor to another. The software includes an identify function so you can find the monitor you’re adjusting even when you're working with lots of monitors. Because the adjustments are electronic, monitor color is stable over time. You can easily add new software updates for new video formats and waveform displays via USB.

Thin Lightweight Design
