The Blackmagic Design SmartView 4K is a professional 15.6" TFT LCD monitor with a native resolution of 3840x2160 and two multi-rate 12G-SDI inputs. The inputs automatically switch between SD, HD, and 4K formats, including Ultra HD (3840x2160) at 60 fps and DCI 4K (4096x2160) at 24 fps. The machined metal frame provides built-in control buttons for access to advanced broadcast features, including 3D LUTs, H/V delay, blue channel only, and customizable frame markers. The chassis is rack-mountable (6 RU) and also has VESA mounting holes for installation on articulating arms.
When monitoring SD, 720p, or 1080p SDI sources, the built-in Teranex processor uses Blackmagic′s patented and proprietary PixelMotion algorithms to automatically de-interlace and scale video to the native Ultra HD resolution of the LCD. This gives users optimum image quality, even when working with lower resolution images. In addition to the front panel buttons, the monitor can be controlled remotely via the rear Ethernet connection with loop output using the included software for Mac and Windows. With both AC power as well as 12V DC power inputs, the SmartView 4K is well suited for use in the studio or on set.
