SmallHD announced the launch of a new 4K 13-inch high-bright monitor. Cine 13 is SmallHD’s most compact, agile, and pixel-dense 13-inch production monitor yet.
Built for those on-set creatives who require critical focusing capability and a large display, the new 4K 13-inch high-bright monitor from SmallHD expands the solutions available from the company. Cine 13 is, according to the company, “SmallHD’s most compact, agile, and pixel-dense 13-inch production monitor yet. With its low-profile design, this on-set workhorse can fit into nearly any production scenario. The brilliant daylight visibility and 4K clarity of Cine 13 is designed for creatives requiring critical-focus capability at all times.”
“Cine 13 is a major upgrade in image quality–we think it’s the best-looking 13-inch production monitor ever made,” said Dave Bredbury, Product Manager for CS Cine. “With upgraded contrast ratio, resolution, portability, brightness, and color reproduction, Cine 13 is a versatile powerhouse that will delight focus-pullers and cinematographers alike.”
Camera teams have been craving a bright, portable, and versatile 13-inch monitor; Cine 13 is SmallHD’s elegant answer, allowing users to view both HD and 4K video, in a compact form factor, without compromising image quality. It features a 13-inch IPS LCD screen with over 1500nits of brightness for a brilliant display, regardless of production scenario.
Tools to expand 4K workflows
SmallHD designed Cine 13 for both functionality and portability: it includes 4x independent 12G-SDI inputs/outputs, integrated accessory power ports, a dovetail mounting rail for battery plate or accessory mounting, and a removable bottom Cheese Rail for additional mounting flexibility. All those powerful features are housed in an aluminum unibody chassis weighing only 6.8-lbs, making Cine 13 one of the lightest 4K monitors on the market. Combined with SmallHD’s popular PageOS 4 tools like Color Pipe color rendering, Custom False Color, and Pomfort Livegrade integration, filmmakers can trust Cine 13 to provide a technically-accurate view of their shots.
As more of the industry pivots to 4K and HDR monitoring, SmallHD is handing creators the tools to expand their 4K capabilities and future-proof production workflows.
