SmallHD 503 UltraBright

The SmallHD 503 ultrabright monitor has the ability to have high brightness while maintaining low power consumption, and features HDR Preview with 10-Bit ColourEngine and up to 2500 nits. You can fine tune your HDR Preview with white point and black point adjustment sliders and load any 3D LUT via SD card using SmallHD’s ColourFlow 3D LUT engine.

The 503 provides a quick and easy way to access tools like Focus Peaking, HD Waveform and 3D LUTs.

The built in pagebuilder OS enables you to send your video signal downstream via the Output Preview page. Any LUTs applied to the Output Preview page will also be mirrored downstream. Display up to three, fully customisable scopes on screen at a time. Utilise Colour Picker to show raw pixel values from the displayed video.

Exposure Assist supports both ARRI and Spectrum based false colour, with built in IRE guides for reference. Utilise 2x Zebra to warn you when reaching a brightness level of your choosing. This is great for matching exposure across shots and cameras.

Monitor two input sources simultaneously. You can apply LUT’s and tools to each source individually. Great for monitoring A/B cameras or pre and post LUT footage. You can also apply tools to each page individually.

Focus assist creates a bright highlight on in-focus subject matter; highly recommended when focusing on the fly. Focus Peaking increases the image sharpness allowing more detailed focusing. Change your colour and intensity of your focus tools.

Select standard markers and safety areas that can be overlaid on the display as lines or matte overlays with custom opacity level and colours. Default aspect ratios include 4:3, 1.85, 2.39:1, 16:9 and Custom (user selectable).
