The 702 looks very much like a larger version of the SmallHD 502; sleek design with joystick and single button on the front.
It has both HDMI and SDI in and out (expect cross conversion) and a very neat solution for offering both dual Canon LP-E6 and Sony NP-F batteries natively.
It looks like one of the main selling points of the 702 is the high brightness display. We’ve seen this feature in their DP7-PRO High Bright, SmallHD label the new 700 series monitor as daylight viewable.
The 702 offers 1000 NITs of brightness, if you’re not familiar with that measurement it is said to be 2-3x brighter than a traditional LCD. The DP7-PRO High Bright offers 1500 NITs, but the new anti-glare reflection coating is likely to compensate.
“The LCD panel features optically bonded glass with anti-reflective coating. This greatly reduces glare and helps the high resolution, color accurate display remain visible.”
Unsurprisingly like the 500 series monitors the SmallHD 702 will run on the Page Builder OS, expect the handy swipe between pages interface, customizable focus and exposure assists, 3D LUT support including custom & sending downstream.
Pricing starts at $1499.00 and if it’s further more like the 500 series we may see a cheaper HDMI only version too at a later stage.
