Blackmagic Design's SmartView Duo comprises a pair of
side-by-side 8" LCD monitors – both with an auto-selecting 3G/HD/SD-SDI
input – that are housed in a 3 RU-high, rackmountable form factor. Ideal
for live broadcast and mobile video production, the slim SmartView Duo
features integrated tally (input via a standard 9-pin D connector) that
clearly shows video status by displaying a red, green, or blue ring that
borders the screen in question.
The 800 x 480-resolution displays' auto-switching SDI inputs accept an
extremely wide range of digital signals, from standard-def 525i and 625i
to full progressive high-definition 1080p60 and several flavors of
2K-resolution video. There's a loop-out BNC for both inputs, with
re-clocking of the signal. For screen configuration and settings, plus
firmware updates, the SmartView Duo has both USB 2.0 and Ethernet
For the SmartView Duo, a sleek design pays practical dividends.
The thinness of the dual-display panel (less than 1") means it's easier
to install, transport, and ship. The lack of mechanical controls on the
panel itself takes inadvertent adjustments out of the equation. The
auto-image-flip feature means that the displays can be rotated upside
down so you can achieve the best viewing angle.
Perfect for Live Production
SmartView Duo is perfectly designed for building a video wall
for monitoring all sources going into live production switchers. Because
it's so incredibly thin, it's also perfect for portable setups where
you need to save space. Imagine having all your video sources displayed
on large 8" 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 Duo is lightweight and thin, so
it's perfect for outside broadcast vans – or even installed into
portable monitor racks to reduce the shipping costs of flyaway kits
Good-quality SDI monitoring is expensive and often makes it hard
to put monitoring on all the devices in your racks or control rooms
because costs add up quickly. SmartView Duo eliminates this problem and
includes two large, beautiful 8" displays in a compact 3-rack-unit size.
You get full loop-through SDI connections and an Ethernet network
connection for setup. SmartView Duo includes easy-to-use software for
Mac and Windows, so you can see all the monitors on your network for
remote adjustments. That's perfect when you want to color-match all
screens in a video wall remotely from your laptop. SmartView Duo even
includes tally (see below)
Wide 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, making it easy to upgrade to new SDI video formats when they
are invented. (Updates are free from the Blackmagic Design website.)
SmartView Duo includes new advanced video standards used in
post-production, including 1080-line progressive HD rates and even 2K
formats 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
Broadcast and Post-Production
In a busy facility you can never have enough monitors, and
SmartView Duo is perfect when you need monitoring for all your
equipment. Install SmartView Duo into your editing desks so you can keep
track of decks and other video sources and create an exciting "mission
control" environment which will blow your clients' minds! SmartView Duo
is perfect for in-rack monitoring so you always know what's going on.
Now with SmartView Duo, everyone can have that exciting "broadcast
experience" of monitoring wherever it's needed
SmartView Duo features two fully independent 8" monitors for
incredible monitoring. Each monitor includes loop-through SDI video,
which instantly switches between any SD, HD, and 3 Gb/s SDI source, even
2K formats over 3 Gb/s SDI. SmartView Duo includes no mechanical
controls, so it won't suffer from settings drift or damage related to
mechanical controls. For matching multiple screens in master control
rooms, SmartView Duo includes loop-through Ethernet for remote
adjustment, even from a laptop computer. If you need to mount SmartView
Duo in the extreme top or bottom of an equipment rack, SmartView Duo's
LCDs can be rotated upside down for the optimal viewing angle. SmartView
Duo will automatically sense the rotation and flip both onscreen
images. SmartView Duo even includes a choice of red, green or blue tally
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
SmartView Duo includes full tally features, so it's the perfect
companion for live broadcasters. Not a simple tally light, the monitors'
tally borders 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
International Power Supply
If you're traveling all over the world, SmartView Duo is perfect
because it includes a standard 12V power supply with socket adapters
for each country. Ideal for live-location use where you don't have
engineering support, a standard 12V 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
stays perfectly secure
Digital signal support for both 50 Hz (PAL) and 60 Hz (NTSC) regions
Switchable (auto-selects) between SD, HD and 3 Gb/s SDI. Reclocked loop-through output
Auto detection of 2K, HD or standard definition inputs
