Blackmagic Design Launches SmartView 4K

News Image
Blackmagic Design has launched SmartView 4K, a UHD broadcast monitor with 12G-SDI inputs for compatibility with SD, HD and Ultra HD formats up to 2160p60.

The solution was demonstrated on the Blackmagic Design stand at IBC2014. SmartView 4K is a professional UHD monitor with a native resolution of 3840 x 2160, an LCD screen with a wide viewing angle and features such as 3D LUTs, adjustable on screen markers, H/V delay and blue only.
SmartView 4K features multi rate 12G-SDI inputs that automatically switch between SD, HD and Ultra HD formats up to 2160p60. With 12G-SDI, SmartView 4K is future proofed with full resolution UHD high frame rate support.
When monitoring SD, 720 HD or 1080 HD SDI sources, the built in Teranex processor uses proprietary PixelMotionTM algorithms to automatically de-interlace and scale video to the native Ultra HD resolution of the LCD.
The six-rack unit size machined metal design of SmartView 4K features a built in control panel for access to features such as built in 3D LUTs, H/V delay, blue only for checking hue and image noise and customisable frame markers. The machined metal design also has a metal internal chassis allowing VESA mounting points on the rear so the monitor can be rack mounted, or mounted on articulated arms similar to computer monitors.
Blackmagic SmartView 4K includes both universal AC power as well as 12V DC power inputs so it can be used with a battery or plugged into standard AC mains power.
It also features a SMPTE-compatible optical fiber SDI socket for allowing customers to add an optical fiber SDI module if they want to run optical fiber direct to their monitor without converters.
Blackmagic SmartView 4K can be controlled from the front panel or remotely via rear mounted Ethernet connection with loop output using the included Mac and Windows software. It also supports VESA mounting so customers can install it on articulated monitor arms, on walls or in equipment racks.
Dual 3D LUTs can be selected on and off with the push of a button, and the DC power input allows a V-Lock battery pack to be mounted on the rear of the monitor and plugged into the DC input for long running time where no AC power is available.
"SmartView 4K is the most versatile, highest resolution professional monitor we've ever created," said Grant Petty, CEO, Blackmagic Design. "Its future proof 12G-SDI based design helps customers get ready for Ultra HD workflows while maintaining compatibility with and delivering exceptional quality for current SD and HD sources. Plus, it's flexible enough to be used on set or in a the largest broadcast studio. It's all very exciting."
