SmallHD talks Big Production Monitors: NAB 2017 Video

Production monitors tough enough for any production

SmallHD started with… well small HD on-camera monitors. Now, the North Carolina company has moved up to full-sized HDR Production monitors for on-set viewing, editors, and colorists. At NAB 2017, SmallHD not only showed off their 17-inch Production monitor but displayed their new 24-inch production monitor.

SmallHD Announce A New Price

Formerly the 17-inch production monitor by SmallHD was priced at $3999.00. The new price has dropped by $500 to $3499.00. What is the price for the larger 24-inch production monitor? SmallHD is not saying just yet, but they emphasize the 24-inch sized monitor will be priced in accordance to the 17-inch monitor. I would expect the 24-inch monitor to be a little bit more expensive.

At 1080P/250 nits, what sets this monitor apart from the run-of-the-mill Rec709 monitors that have been available for years? (and for considerably less $$)
