The Blackmagic Design SmartView 4K 2 is a professional 15.6" TFT LCD monitor with a native resolution of 3840 x 2160 and two multi-rate 12G-SDI inputs. The inputs automatically switch between SD, HD, and 4K formats, including up to DCI 4K (4096 x 2160) at 60 fps. An SMPTE-compatible optical fiber socket enables you to add a separate module for SDI fiber input.
The SmartView 4K 2's machined metal frame provides built-in control buttons for access to advanced broadcast features including 3D LUTs, H/V delay, blue channel only, and customizable frame markers. The chassis is rack-mountable (6 RU) and also has VESA mounting holes for installation on articulating arms.
When monitoring SD, 720p, or 1080p SDI sources, the built-in Teranex processor uses Blackmagic's PixelMotion algorithms to automatically deinterlace and scale video up to UHD 4K. This gives users optimum image quality, even when working with lower-resolution images. In addition to the front panel buttons, the monitor can be controlled remotely via the rear Ethernet connection using the downloadable Mac or Windows software, ideal for hard-to-reach setups. With both AC power as well as 12 VDC power inputs, the SmartView 4K is well suited for use in the studio or on the set.
