SmallHD introduced a new line of seven-inch monitors at IBC with the 702 Bright, an LCD panel boasting 1000 nits of brightness and a 179-degree viewing angle.

The 1080p 16:10 HD display has 323 pixels per inch and an anti-reflective coating that protects against glare under high ambient lighting. Like SmallHD's 500 series, the 702 Bright is built around the Page Builder OS, allowing users to create multiple "pages" with scopes, looks, and focus assists, and then flip between them using the monitor's joystick control. 

3D LUT support is built in, allowing baked-in color for downstream output to monitors and recording devices. Monitoring tools include HD waveform, RGB Parade, and on-screen audio meters, and the device supports full-res HDMI/SDI signal conversion. The usual array of features are provided — frame guides, anamorphic de-squeeze, histogram, peaking, false color, etc. (What's missing? Picture in picture and a horizon indicator.)


In a neat grace note, the 702 Bright can be powered by onboard Canon LP-E6 and/or Sony L-series batteries, with no additional battery plate required.

The MSRP is $1,499 and the 702 Bright is expected to ship in mid-October.
