For either studio or mobile production, the new Small HD 702 Touch offers a capacitive touchscreen with an easy-to-navigate interface, giving access to multiple functions.
If SmallHD was a band, I would have to write that they keep writing variations of the same tune, adapting it to different ears. The company designs monitors, but the logic applies, as the monitors from SmallHD fit every possible need you may find for a monitor. The new 702 Touch is another example, also introduced at NAB 2019.
The SmallHD 702 Touch is a professional 7″ 1920 x 1200 monitor that delivers, says the company, “a world class user experience and feature-set. Its daylight viewable 1,500 nit panel and stunning 100% DCI-P3 color gamut offer an unparalleled monitoring experience for studio and mobile production environments.”
The monitor is perfect for 1st AC’s due to its integration with Teradek RT. Connect a CTRL.1 or CTRL.3 controller to the monitor for real-time lens data overlays, which show critical follow focus information on the screen, including lens focal distance, focal length, iris, zoom and more.
A highly sensitive touch screen
The 702 Touch has a sleek, low-profile design. Its signal and power options allow the on-camera monitor to fit seamlessly into any workflow. With ports well protected by the space gray aluminum chassis, the 702 Touch offers 2x 3G-SDI inputs, a 3G-SDI output, an HDMI input/output, and 4x mounting points. Wide-range DC input (10-34V, 2A) allows for system power, while several battery brackets (Sony L Series included – Gold Mount and V-Mount available separately) provide further flexibility.
The monitor’s capacitive touchscreen, which supports five simultaneous touches, controls the monitor’s SmallHD OS3 software and PageBuilder interface. The easy-to-navigate, professional OS3 toolset provides a wealth of on-screen functions, including customizable HD Waveform, Vectorscope, False Color, Focus Assist/Peaking, Anamorphic De-squeeze, Framing Guides, and storage of unlimited 3D LUTs via SD card.
The 702 Touch is available April 2019 from the global network of SmallHD resellers and partners. The suggested price for the 702 Touch is $1,299.
