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.
Monitors SD/HD/3G/6G-SDI Signals
The SmartScope Duo 4K allows you to monitor SD, HD, 2K, and UHD 4K (3840 x 2160) video. The inputs are auto-sensing/switching to match the supported input video format. Each monitor features one 6G input and one reclocked loop-through 6G output.
The monitor features an Ethernet in and an Ethernet out port, and you set up the unit using the USB 2.0 port. After that, you use the included free control utility with either a Mac or Windows computer via the Ethernet connection to select your views and make any adjustments to the monitor for brightness and colour.
