    ViewZ VZ-56SM reviews

    VZ-56SM 5.6" LED Camera Test Monitor (Black) is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good HDMi monitor but not SDi We purchased this monitor expecting to be able to use it to test both HDMi and SDi 1080p signal outputs. Although the description on the B&H page shows compatible inputs to include SDi from 720p @50 hz to 1080p @60hz it won't do it. The owners manual says 720p @25hz, and 30hz and 1080p at 25hz and 30hz. At the price it's still a good HDMi rechargeable monitor we will use in other ways.
