Introducing SmartView and SmartScope

Blackmagic Design 17 SmartView HD Studio Monitor

SmartView monitors are perfect for any facility which requires rack-based monitoring. To simply get up and running, the only thing you need to do is plug-in power and connect an SDI source! SmartView 4K has a 15.6” 4K LCD so you can monitor SD, HD, or Ultra HD video in its native 3840x2160 pixel resolution. The front control panel buttons mean you can easily select inputs, adjust the screen brightness, check for noise in the blue channel, view blanking information, apply 3D LUTs, and more. SmartView HD has a 17” HD LCD which is perfect for confidence monitoring in full resolution HD.

SmartView Duo has two monitors for simultaneous display of different video signals. For example, one monitor can display a YUV 4:2:2 signal while the other receives RGB 4:4:4. One monitor could be showing NTSC while the other shows PAL. There are many possible combinations but it is all as simple as connecting a single SDI cable to each monitor! SmartScope Duo 4K has all the same features as SmartView Duo plus can be used to display the waveform, vectorscope, and other popular scopes for monitoring video and audio levels in real-time. Plus, you get full support for Ultra HD 4K! All SDI input connections on SmartView and SmartScope monitors support auto-detection of SD, HD, or 3G-SDI including 2K video.

SmartView 4K also detects Ultra HD including formats such as 2160p60 via 12G-SDI. SmartScope Duo 4K includes auto-detection of Ultra HD 4K video via 6G-SDI. If you want to remotely adjust settings for multiple SmartView and SmartScope units from one computer, you can connect them together via Ethernet. This means you won’t have to run around to each unit with a computer and USB cable each time you want to adjust settings. That’s all you need to get started! Please read on for more detailed instructions on connecting SmartView and SmartScope, configuring monitor settings in Blackmagic SmartView setup, and connecting to a network.

Technical Details

Getting a Picture

Displaying your video is easy! Simply power the unit and connect your video source to an SDI input. Once powered and connected, your video should be immediately visible. SD, HD and 2K signals are automatically detected by the SDI input and loop through output connections. SmartView 4K and SmartScope Duo 4K also detects Ultra HD 4K.

When no video is received by the unit, the backlight turns off, saving power until the next valid signal is received.

Daisy chaining Monitors

Each SmartView and SmartScope monitor has its own independent SDI input as well as a loop through output so you can chain multiple monitors together to display the same input signal:

  1. Power on unit 1. Connect a video source to an SDI input. The video should immediately be visible.
  2. Power on unit 2. Connect an SDI cable from a loop output of unit 1 to an SDI input on unit 2.

There is no limit to the amount of units you can chain. If you are waveform monitoring using SmartScope Duo 4K, you’ll probably want to loop the Monitor 1 output to Monitor 2 so both displays use the same input signal. Now you have video displayed, you can adjust monitor settings, or select scopes on SmartScope Duo 4K using the Blackmagic SmartView setup software, which you can also use to load 3D LUTs on Blackmagic SmartView 4K.
