Combining a wireless video receiver and high-quality HD monitor, the SmallHD 703 Bolt 7" Wireless Monitor is an all-in-one director's monitor solution. Borrowing the wireless technology from Teradek, the 703 Bolt can receive uncompressed HD wireless signals from Bolt 500, 1000, or 3000 transmitters up to 300' away with no perceptible latency. With this feature, anyone can walk around the set while monitoring a camera feed, perfect for directors and camera assistants. Furthermore, despite the presence of a wireless receiver, the 703 Bolt maintains a slim profile similar to on-camera monitors.

A unibody aluminum exterior keeps the monitor durable yet lightweight, while also acting as a heatsink for the internal electronics. The LCD panel itself is protected by a layer of optically-bonded Gorilla Glass, notable for its transparency and toughness. The optical bonding process ensures that blacks are not washed out and reduces the harshness of reflections.

On the sides of the display is the SDI I/O. Having dual SDI ports allows for A/B viewing of two different SDI signals, or the secondary port can be assigned as an output for sending an SDI signal downstream to another monitor, switcher, or wireless accessory. All the functionality of the monitor is available via the PageBuilder OS, which provides advanced functionality with a simple and efficient graphical user interface.

PageBuilder OS

PageBuilder OS is an intuitive graphical user interface (GUI) that puts all the advanced functionality of the 703 Bolt at your fingertips. Rather than have confusing menus, this GUI allows you to selectively apply monitoring tools such as waveform, vectorscope, multiview, LUTs, and focusing aids on different "pages". These pages can be easily flipped through using the joystick. The buttons on the front panel can also toggle monitoring tools on and off for each page.

ColorFlow 3D LUT Processing

To keep your images consistent from production through to post-production, ColorFlow allows you to import 3D LUTs and display the treated image side-by-side with the untreated image to correctly gauge exposure while visualizing what is being recorded by the camera. Separate LUT-treated images can be sent downstream over SDI so you can have the 703 Bolt display a log image or LUT-treated image, while the director or client monitors connected to the outputs can receive images treated with a different LUT. An image capture function saves a still frame from the incoming video stream onto an SD card, and records the applied 3D LUT for post-production reference.

On-Set Problem Solving

PageBuilder OS has a dedicated "Output Preview" page which allows you to apply LUTs and other image adjustments specific to the output signal from the monitor. Whether you have your camera connected to the wireless or SDI inputs on the 703 Bolt, you are not limited by that connection; the 703 Bolt cross-converts to ensure compatibility with downstream hardware.

HD Scopes

Fill the screen with up to three simultaneous scopes, including waveform, vectorscope, and histogram, while still being able to observe the camera feed.

Exposure Tools

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

Customizable Focus Assist and Peaking Tools

As recording resolutions increase, so does the importance of focusing precision. With Focus Assist, you can highlight the areas that are in focus with a bright color. These highlights are easily visible on the fly for quick focus confirmation. Focus Peaking increases the sharpness of the image for a subtler focus confirmation without the need for bright outlines. The color and intensity of these tools are adjustable to fit your preference.

Versatile Frame Guides

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

Super light

By John

The best directors monitor out there, Super bright and light and with the built in receiver it avoids a bunch of cables vs a unit with separate receiver and power cables.

The screen works but the device does not wirelessly pair.

Perfect for focus pulling. Not that crazy about the handles

The monitor is great. Brightness and picture quality is literally the best today. Having the receiver included is soooooo good!

Great Focus Puller Monitor

By Asa
Rated 5 out of 5

Only had this for a few weeks and its the best monitor Ive ever owned. As a 1st AC it makes my job way easier as I dont have to spend time jerry rigging a wireless Rx to my monitor to a stand or my HU. I just take it out of my case and attach it to my HU and Im good to go, giving me more time to focus on building the camera and other things.  The fact that its so lightweight is great for run and gun type shoot. I put an AB batt in my pouch and run a 2pin Lemo to it and it saves the weight from my wrist. I can pull focus handheld all day with this monitor.  Alternatively if Director or Client asks for a handheld monitor I can easily hand them this and know that itll be hard for them to mess it up haha. Most directors who use this really appreciate how small and portable this monitor is so it makes us ACs look good too! Definitely recommend buying this if youre a 1st AC looking for a focus monitor or Director looking for a simple handheld monitor.

question

Can I send two signals from a bolt1000? One to this monitor and the other to a receiver on my FSI monitor?
Asked by: Justin C.
Yes you can. You can send the signal from a Bolt 1000 transmitter to 2 receivers and this unit can accept the signal from a Bolt 1000.

question

Can you attach a microRemote (focus puller) directly to the SmallHD703 Bolt?
Asked by: Susan
Yes, that is possible. B&H # RE31140001 has a 1/4 -20 thread on the back of it for rigging, while the 703 Bolt has four 1/4 -20 thread on it. One idea would be to use a 1/4 -20 To 1/4 -20 Adapter Spigot on the side and have the focus puller tight to the body of the monitor, B&H # IMCA110.https://bhpho.to/2bzhWwkhttps://bhpho.to/2jdVltE

question

Does this have a built-in spectrum analyzer?
Asked by: NICHOLAS
This has many tools valuable to videography such as waveform, vectorscope, and histogram. However, it does not do spectrum analysis. You could get this one B&H sells: KJB Security Products Delta X 100/4 Spectrum Analyzer (40 kHz - 4400 MHz) B&H # KJDX1004.
