SmallHD 503 UltraBright On-Camera Monitor Hire

SmallHD 503 UltraBright On-Camera Monitor Hire

If your video or cinema camera has a monitoring LCD that easily washes out in bright sunlight, the SmallHD 503 UltraBright On-Camera Monitor, with its 2200 cd/m² bright backlight, can be your solution to this environmental difficulty. The 5" 1920 x 1080 LCD provides a sharp image, ideal for focus pulling and image analysis on set and in the field. Another advantage of the high-brightness panel is the monitor's ability to preview HDR content.

HDR preview extends the display's dynamic range to portray a greater range of brightness in the image. The 503's form factor is at home on mirrorless cameras and smaller cinema cameras, though it is equally effective on larger cameras as well. A unibody aluminum exterior keeps the monitor durable yet lightweight, while also acting as a heatsink for the internal electronics. Further adding protection, the LCD panel itself is topped with a layer of optically bonded Gorilla Glass, notable for its transparency and toughness.

The optical bonding process ensures that blacks are not washed out while simultaneously reducing the harshness of reflections. On the sides of the display are the SDI and HDMI 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.
