What's in the Box

Blackmagic Design SmartScope Duo 4K Rack-Mounted Dual 6G-SDI Monitors
  • 12V Universal Power Supply
  • Set of International Wall Socket Adapters
  • Limited 1-Year Warranty

The Blackmagic Design SmartScope Duo 4K Rack-Mounted Dual 6G-SDI Monitors is a monitoring solution for studio and location productions, displaying video with resolutions up to 3840 x 2160 at 30p. It features two 8" monitors each with a loop-through SDI input and output. The inputs are auto-sensing/selecting so you don't have to worry about matching the input format; the monitor will display any supported format that you feed it. You can choose to select to display either the input video or one of six scope displays, while the input video passes through the monitor to downstream devices.

You use the USB connector to initialize the monitor on your network; after that, you can control the monitors using the supplied software via the Ethernet connector. This allows you to adjust the monitors' brightness and colour as well as select the monitor to display mode - video or scope view. The SmartScope Duo 4K also incorporates a Tally display around the border of the image, which works with industry-standard Tally systems. The unit takes up three rack height units but is less than two inches deep (including the connector depth), which makes it well suited for use in production trucks where space is at a premium. The unit also automatically flips the image if you need to install the unit upside down.

Select Picture

SmartScope Duo 4K gives you the choice to select a scope display or regular video on each of the 8 inch LCD displays. You can even monitor video on one LCD while running a scope such as waveform, histogram or audio on the other screen. This is a powerful combination because you can see the video you're monitoring alongside a real-time scope measurement, all on the same SmartScope Duo 4K! You can always rely on SmartScope Duo 4K to give you broadcast accurate monitoring, ensuring your video production has perfect video and audio levels at all times!

Waveform

Waveform display is perfect for adjusting video levels or matching black background levels when keying! Waveform Display features a luminance waveform of the black and white levels in your video signal. It's perfect for setting the output levels on your broadcast decks and generally monitoring the levels of your production while you edit. Waveform display is a vital tool for colour grading and a valuable reference for unifying background levels when keying.

Vectorscope

A vectorscope is the only way to measure colours in video accurately! If you're color correcting video, vectorscope shows when color has been removed or nulled out for accurate white balance. When you need to apply a tint, vectorscope lets you see exactly how much tint you’re adding and what color it is. Sometimes monitors cannot be trusted, but with vectorscope you’ll always know the exact colours you’re working with! You can also easily align the hue on decks using a vectorscope!

Parade Display

The real-time RGB parade waveform view is the ideal scope for accurate colour correction. You can see the color balance in ‘blacks’, ‘mids’ and ‘whites’, making it easy to balance colors for perfect looking images. RGB Parade lets you check for illegal colours because any video that drops below the black line, or above the 100% line, is an illegal RGB colour! Vectorscope view cannot show illegal video levels, because vectorscope only plots colors and not the luminance component of video. However the RGB parade plots your video as R, G and B and so is the perfect way to keep track of illegal video levels! You can also select YUV parade display which shows the YUV component video as its transmitted down the SDI cable and is perfect for broadcast engineering analysis of SDI signals.

Audio View

Monitor your audio levels with 16 channels of audio metering for viewing every channel in the SDI video connection! The audio scope also includes a stereo phase meter that can be selected to different SDI audio pairs. The stereo phase meter plots left and right audio as an XY scope display so you know exactly what your audio is at all times. It’s easy to see audio problems such as clipping, and out of phase audio can be seen as a left or right-leaning display. If you don’t get a vertical oriented waveform then you know your audio channel balance is out! No audio problem can hide from audio scope display!

Histogram

Clipping levels on a live shoot results in loss of detail, which can cause huge problems when you try to adjust ‘blacks’ or ‘whites’ in post-production. Histogram view lets you see where the pixels are in your video, and how they are distributed from black to white. You can see if your video is clipping and adjust the camera iris and ISO settings to keep all black and white detail in the image. This means you have the full contrast range of video for easy color correction during post-production. Histogram will transform your shoots because you can see exactly what you're recording and the colorist who works on your job will benefit from the availability of the full contrast range of the camera!

Software Update

You can download software updates to your SmartView monitor to add new features in the future. You can also download new software to the SmartScope Duo 4K model so you can add new types of scopes as they become available. Programmable internal software means you can get new features, compatibility with new hardware and support for new formats in the future. When downloading updates of the SmartView Utility, it will automatically detect the software of your hardware and then ask you to update if necessary. The software update is then downloaded for you and is simple to perform!
