Whether producing content for broadcast or cinema distribution, you can depend on the SmallHD Reference Grade 17" Production Monitor with Teradek Sidekick II Receiver to display accurate colors in professional studio and location settings.

True 10-bit color depth can differentiate between 1024 levels of brightness, per channel, for smooth gradients essential for critical image analysis. While the LED backlight provides 1000 cd/m² of brightness, a special 100 cd/m² "studio mode" setting provides accurate brightness levels for light-controlled post-production environments. Although post-production friendly, the monitor can tough it out in the production world with its milled aluminum body, versatile power options, and a wide selection of monitoring tools. Having a color-accurate monitor on set means that directors, clients, or DITs can have a dependable reference display for nearly any kind of production.

Built-In Wireless Receiver

Compatible with Teradek Bolt 500, 1000, 3000, and Focus Bolt/Cine 7 500 transmitters.

PageBuilder OS

Originally featured in the 500 and 700-series models, and extrapolated for the Production Monitor series, the PageBuilder OS is an intuitive graphical user interface (GUI) that puts all the advanced functionality of the 1703 at your fingertips. Rather than have confusing menus, this GUI allows you to selectively apply monitoring tools such as waveform, vectorscope, multiview, and focusing aids to different "pages". These pages can be easily flipped through using the joystick, or selected with the four quick-access buttons on the front panel. Additional buttons on the front panel can 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. A side-by-side preview can also be used with the HDR preview function. Separate LUT-treated images can be sent downstream over SDI and HDMI, so you can have the 1703 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

The 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.

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. The Color Picker function can analyze the raw color values of any individual pixel in the frame.

Exposure Tools

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

Dual-View

View two video feeds side by side. The feeds can be from two different inputs to view angle options, or from the same source. Different adjustments can be applied to each feed, so you can have one feed with a flat uncorrected log image, and have the second feed display a corrected log image with a LUT. Monitoring tools can also be applied individually, so you can view a raw video feed side by side with a feed that has exposure tools or focus assists overlaid.

Focus Assist and Peaking Tools

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 for more detailed focusing. The color and intensity of the peaking can be adjusted to your preference.

RapidRail Shoe Mount System

Quickly secure and detach accessories such as wireless units to the rear of the monitor using standard shoe mount rails. This saves time over traditional screw-mounted methods and keeps your setup clean and neat. If required, these accessories can be powered straight off the monitor using the integrated 12V LEMO power output or the three USB ports.

Power Options

Separately available V-mount or Gold mount battery plates can be attached to the rear of the display. A mounted battery can power the monitor as well as attached accessories through the 12V LEMO connection. The USB ports on the rear of the monitor can also power accessories with a maximum draw of 0.5A per port.
