SmallHD introduces at IBC 2018 the second version of its FOCUS OLED 5” 1080p Touchscreen Monitor, the FOCUS OLED SDI, featuring SDI input.

The FOCUS OLED family from SmallHD is growing, and the company has a new product, the FOCUS OLED SDI monitor, announced last April at NAB 2018 and now finally available. The monitor will be one of the highlights of its presence at IBC 2018, in Amsterdam. The new monitor, in a similar fashion to the original SmallHD FOCUS monitor, has the ability to power small DSLR and mirrorless cameras with its integrated Sony L Series battery. Using the monitor’s 7.2 volt power output and camera specific adapter cables, operators can use one battery to power their camera and monitor for several hours.

The SmallHD FOCUS OLEDs provide, says the company, beautiful and sharp, 1920×1080 resolution, and wide color gamut display. With edge-to-edge bonded glass, integrated battery slot, and included SmallHD Tilt Arm mounting solution, OLED has never been this accessible. Both the SDI and HDMI models of the camera-top monitor combine the color and contrast performance of OLED technology with the convenience of a touchscreen user interface, at a cost-effective price.

The FOCUS OLED is equipped with SmallHD’s OS3 software suite, utilizing the SWIPE user interface. Professional tools like HD Waveform, Vectorscope, False Color and Focus Assist, are quickly accessible and completely customizable. With smartphone-like user controls, this monitor answers the call for an easy-to-use, data-driven, camera-top toolset.

The SmallHD FOCUS OLED is available with either a Micro HDMI input or a full-size SDI input. Both options include an integrated Sony L Series battery slot, 7.2 Volt power output, 1/8” stereo mini-plug for monitoring audio, and a full-size SD card slot for loading real-time 3D LUTs.

Weighing in at just 9 ounces (255g), the FOCUS OLED provides a stunningly sharp image without adding bulk. The 5.5-inch, 1080p display has an expansive contrast ratio (60,000:1), 350 nit brightness, over 400 pixels-per-inch pixel density, and a wide color gamut (105% NTSC).

The FOCUS OLED SDI has an MSRP of $799 while the HDMI version has an MSRP of $699.
