The 21.6" 4K production monitor will begin shipping this month.
SmallHD has unveiled the OLED 22 4K Production Monitor, which the company will begin shipping this month.
“DITs, DPs and colorists have been waiting for what feels like forever to replace their ancient HD OLED monitors,” says Greg Smokler, vice president of product for Creative Solutions. “That’s why we spent more than two years building OLED 22, the first lightweight 4K OLED production monitor with a feature set that enables critical monitoring of 4K images both on set and in the color suite.”
OLED 22’s hardware design is built around the Small4KTM Video Processing Architecture, which provides eight 12G-SDI and two HDMI 2.0 ports, all of which enable 4K signal processing. Housed in a rugged, milled-aluminum chassis that includes 36 individual 1⁄4-20" mounting points along the top and sides, the OLED 22 weighs 9.3 pounds. Removable handle and feet facilitate portability.
Monitor specs include: 21.6" screen size, >1,000,000:1 contrast ratio with an absolute black point, 10-bit color depth, 3840x2160 resolution, 350nit brightness level and 100% P3/135% Rec 709 color gamuts.
Power options include two hot-swappable inputs: a three-pin XLR and a slide-on Dual Battery Plate (Gold Mount & V-Mount options sold separately), which can be attached via the built-in Smart Rail on the rear side of the monitor. Two two-pin locking accessory outputs add power flexibility for additional devices.
The OLED 22 is compatible with Teradek Bolt 4K, enabling cable-free video monitoring in 4K 10-bit HDR.
The monitor is being offered at an introductory price of $11,999 for a limited time.
SmallHD has also introduced PageOS 4, software that gives users access to a diverse, customizable array of exposure tools and workflows for enhanced production functionality. PageOS 4 supports a streamlined color-calibration experience with Color Pipe, an intuitive rendering tool that accurately converts log formats into SDR and HDR. PageOS 4 includes upgrades in user page presets, 4K HDR (PQ) waveforms, improved false color and dual/quad viewing options.
