Blackmagic Design announces lower price for SmartView Duo
SmartView Duo (now US$495) features two large 8 inch LCD screens in a compact rack mount design that’s less than an inch thick. SmartView Duo handles all SD, HD and 3G-SDI video standards, and all screens can be remotely adjusted via your Ethernet network from a single computer.
According to Blackmagic Design, the fully digital design with high quality SDI inputs ensures precise colour that’s easy to manage across multiple displays. SmartView Duo can be installed into equipment racks for local monitoring in post production, or for multi-monitor video walls in master control rooms and broadcast vehicles for camera or production switcher monitoring.
SmartView Duo is compatible with a wide range of SD and HD-SDI video formats for broadcast and post production monitoring, as well as the latest 2K DCI support for feature film workflows. SmartView Duo also features network remote control and integrated tally support.
“We designed the SmartView Duo with high quality filtering and scaling for the highest end broadcast quality monitoring,” said Grant Petty, CEO, Blackmagic Design. “Now, with this new affordable price, SmartView Duo is now available to smaller studios on the tightest budgets. You can never have enough monitoring, and now with SmartView Duo it’s possible! SmartView Duo customers get all the professional features they need without any limitations!”
