This SmallHD 703 UltraBright Directors Kit with V-mount battery plate provides you with a 7", 2200 cd/m² brightness monitor, a cage and sun hood, accessory handles and neck strap, as well as screen protectors, BNC cable, LEMO power lead cable, and a cleaning cloth. This kit makes it simple for the director to see what the camera sees, whether indoors or out. The included handles allow the monitor to be easily gripped, positioned, or held, while the neck strap helps prevent the monitor from crashing to the ground when held by an easily distracted operator.

The UltraBright monitor's display is easily visible outdoors even in bright days, and the included anti-reflection screen protector helps with visibility on gray, overcast, glare-riddled days. If you don't need the anti-glare properties, you can use the included clear screen protector instead. Either protects your screen from day-to-day wear, but the screen protector will not protect your monitor or screen from impact damage.

  • 703 UltraBright On-Camera Monitor

    Though monitoring HD video signals outdoors can be difficult, the SmallHD 703 UltraBright On-Camera Monitor, with its 2200 cd/m² bright backlight, overcomes this environmental difficulty. The 7" 1920 x 1080 LCD provides a sharp image, ideal for focus pulling and image analysis on set and in the field. Another advantage of the high-brightness panel is the monitor's ability to preview HDR content. HDR preview extends the display's dynamic range to portray a greater range of brightness in the image.

    A unibody aluminum exterior keeps the monitor durable yet lightweight, while also acting as a heatsink for the internal electronics. The LCD panel itself is protected by a layer of optically-bonded Gorilla Glass, notable for its transparency and toughness. The optical bonding process ensures that blacks are not washed out and reduces the harshness of reflections.

    On the sides of the display are the SDI and HDMI I/O. Having dual SDI ports allows for A/B viewing of two different SDI signals, or the secondary port can be assigned as an output for sending an SDI signal downstream to another monitor, switcher, or wireless accessory. All the functionality of the monitor is available via the PageBuilder OS, which provides advanced functionality with a simple and efficient graphical user interface.

    PageBuilder OS
    PageBuilder OS is an intuitive graphical user interface (GUI) that puts all the advanced functionality of the 703 UltraBright at your fingertips. Rather than have confusing menus, this GUI allows you to selectively apply monitoring tools such as waveform, vectorscope, multiview, LUTs, and focusing aids on different "pages". These pages can be easily flipped through using the joystick. The buttons on the front panel can also toggle monitoring tools on and off for each page.
    ColorFlow 3D LUT Processing
    To keep your images consistent from production through to post-production, ColorFlow allows you to import 3D LUTs and display the treated image side-by-side with the untreated image to correctly gauge exposure while visualizing what is being recorded by the camera. Side-by-side preview can also be used with the HDR preview function. Separate LUT-treated images can be sent downstream over SDI and HDMI so you can have the 703 UltraBright display a log image or LUT-treated image, while the director or client monitors connected to the outputs can receive images treated with a different LUT. An image capture function saves a still frame from the incoming video stream onto an SD card, and records the applied 3D LUT for post-production reference.
    On-Set Problem Solving
    PageBuilder OS has a dedicated "Output Preview" page which allows you to apply LUTs and other image adjustments specific to the output signal from the monitor. Whether you have your camera connected to the HDMI or SDI input on the 703 UltraBright, you are not limited by that protocol; the 703 UltraBright cross-converts to ensure compatibility with downstream hardware.
    HD Scopes
    Fill the screen with up to three simultaneous scopes, including waveform, vectorscope, and histogram, while still being able to observe the camera feed.
    Exposure Tools
    Exposure Assist supports both ARRI and Spectrum based false color, with built in IRE guides for reference. Utilize 2x Zebra to warn you when reaching a brightness level of your choosing. This is great for matching exposure across shots and cameras.
    Customizable Focus Assist and Peaking Tools
    As recording resolutions increase, so does the importance of focusing precision. With Focus Assist, you can highlight the areas that are in focus with a bright color. These highlights are easily visible on the fly for quick focus confirmation. Focus Peaking increases the sharpness of the image for a subtler focus confirmation without the need for bright outlines. The color and intensity of these tools are adjustable to fit your preference.
    Versatile Frame Guides
    Select standard markers and safety areas that can be overlaid on the display as lines or matte overlays, with custom opacity level and colors. Default aspect ratios include 4:3, 1.85, 2.39:1, 16:9, and Custom (user selectable).
    Power Options
    Separately available DV, V-Mount, or Gold Mount battery plates can be attached to the rear of the display. A mounted battery can power the monitor, as well as attached accessories, through the 12V LEMO pass-through connection.
