Blackmagic SmartScope Duo 4K SmartView Intelligent SDI monitoring with broadcast quality scopes
Blackmagic SmartScope Duo 4K looks like a SmartView Duo but adds independent waveform monitoring so you can select between waveform, vectorscope, RGB parade, YUV parade, histogram, and audio phase level displays. Each monitor is independent so can display any combination of scope or picture view. Blackmagic SmartScope Duo 4K adds the flexibility of built-in waveform monitoring that can be assigned to either of its 8-inch displays.
Perfect SDI Monitoring
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.
Choose your Monitor
There are 2 exciting SmartView models to choose from. SmartView Duo features two independent 8″ displays in a 3 RU design that’s less than one inch deep. SmartScope Duo 4K adds independent waveform monitoring and you can select between waveform, vectorscope, RGB parade, YUV parade, histogram, and audio phase with audio level displays. Each SmartScope Duo 4K display is independent so you can monitor any combination of scope or picture view.
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 an integrated tally that is fully compatible with many switchers or automation systems.
Accurate Waveform Monitoring
When you need to analyze image quality more accurately than simply looking at the picture then use SmartScope Duo 4K’s built-in waveform monitoring. You can view two independent sources simultaneously and conveniently switch between monitoring or scope views whenever you need them. Choose from waveform, vectorscope, RGB parade, YUV parade, histogram, and audio phase and level displays, and get broadcast-accurate waveform monitoring that shows everything you need to know technically about your video and audio signals. SmartScope Duo 4K removes the need for separate expensive scopes.
Ultra Thin Design
SmartView monitors feature an elegant front panel that is designed to allow multiple 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 at 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 CompatibilitySmartView 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.
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 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, the monitor color is stable over time. You can easily add new software updates for new video formats and waveform displays via USB.
