SmallHD Firmware Upgrade Adds Functionality to Monitors
(November 8, 2016) SmallHD announces a free firmware update that adds an array of new features to increase the functionality of its groundbreaking line of 13”, 17”, 24” and 32” production monitors, including the HDR (high dynamic range) displays. To provide a better viewing experience, the Firmware 1.3 update adds De-Interlacer to view interlaced video in a progressive mode. It also adds V-Log and S-Log 3 DeLOG and HDR Preview support. A new Color Picker tool has been added to the toolbar to view the specific color values of a selected pixel on the video signal displayed.
The upgrade also supports a Studio Mode for SmallHD’s 1303HDR 13” monitor, which provides a brightness setting engineered for studio environments. Additionally, the multi-view function has been simplified to allow viewing of just two video outputs for A/B Camera setups, and repeated pressing of the input button will now cycle through all available inputs.
The free update, as well as a detailed list of the firmware update’s new features, is available at http://www.smallhd.com/community/firmware-production-monitors
. The 1.3 firmware upgrade can be installed on the following models: 1303 Studio, 1303 HDR, 1703 Studio, 1703 HDR, 2403 Studio, 2403 HDR and 3203 HDR.
Introduced in 2016, SmallHD Studio and Production monitors have rapidly become a new standard due to their daylight-viewing ability, extensive software toolset, compact form, unmatched durability, unprecedented accessory flexibility, and affordable pricing.
