Blackmagic's 17 inch rackmount SmartView HD is a terrific SDI monitor that delivers results that go way beyond what you would expect at this price point. The unit has a very clean look, achieved by enabling basic image control over Ethernet or USB. By removing direct controls, Blackmagic has been able to deliver a device that is small and light-weight - ideal for flyaway kits and OB vans.
SmartView HD features a large 17 inch LCD screen in a compact 6 rack unit design that's less than an inch thick. It handles SD, HD and 3 Gb/s SDI video standards, and all screens can be remotely adjusted via your Ethernet network. You can install SmartView HD into equipment racks for local monitoring in post production, for multi-monitor video walls in master control rooms or for camera monitoring with production switchers.
Because SmartView HD is affordable, and supports most SDI video standards from SD, HD and even 2K, it’s the perfect solution to install anywhere customers need more monitoring. It’s a really nice little monitor and it looks great once you add a few units wherever you need SDI monitoring.
Perfect for Live Production
SmartView is perfectly designed for building a video wall for monitoring all sources into live production switchers and because it’s so incredibly thin, it’s even perfect for portable setups where you need to save space. Imagine having all your video sources displayed on large 17 inch LCD screens so you can see camera focus and quality! Now you can build full live broadcast presentation monitoring that’s small enough to be fully portable! SmartView is lightweight and thin, so it’s perfect for outside broadcast vans or even installed into portable monitor racks to reduce shipping costs of flyway kits.

Greater SDI Compatibility
SmartView Duo is designed to be used for broadcast as well as post production so it includes support for more SDI video standards, including SD, HD and 3 Gb/s SDI formats. SmartView Duo allows firmware updating so it’s easy to upgrade to new SDI video formats when they are invented, and updates are free from the Blackmagic Design web site. SmartView Duo includes new advanced video standards used in post production including 1080 progressive HD rates and even 2K SDI over 3 Gb/s SDI video. All video formats can be connected and changed, because SmartView Duo simply switches in less than a second to the new format!
Smart Ethernet Control
There’s nothing more complicated than trying to match all your monitors by climbing all over your equipment and using little screwdrivers! Simply connect your SmartView Duo to your Ethernet network and use the included Mac and Windows software to adjust all your monitors from one central location. The Monitor Utility software uses Bonjour to automatically find all the SmartView Duo monitors on your network. You can save monitor settings from one monitor and copy to another, and when you’re working with lots of monitors, SmartView Duo even includes an identify mode to help you find the monitor you’re adjusting! SmartView Duo won’t suffer from drift because all adjustments are fully digital.
International Power Supply
If you’re traveling all over the world, SmartView Duo is perfect because it includes a standard 12 volt power supply with socket adapters for each country. Ideal for live location use where you don’t have engineering support, a standard 12 volt power socket means you can get spare power supplies from any electrical store. To eliminate accidental unplugging of power cords during live production or at other crucial times, SmartView Duo includes a cable tie down point so everything is perfectly secure!
SmartView Duo includes full tally features so it’s the perfect companion for live broadcasters. Unlike a simple tally light, SmartView Duo includes tally borders that can be independently displayed in red, green or blue. Each screen features an independent tally in the three colors so you can signal to the user more than a simple on air status. Tally is connected via a standard parallel pin connector on the rear of SmartView Duo so you get full compatibility with any switcher or automation system.
Good monitor, perfect for our needs. Slight dissapointment that the monitor only supports 3G-SDI Level B and not Level A mapping, but good and quick support from Blackmagic made this clear.
