SmallHD has introduced the OLED 22 4K production monitor. “DITs, DPs, and colorists have been waiting for what feels like forever to replace their ancient HD OLED monitors,” said Greg Smokler, Creative Solutions vice president of product. “That’s why we spent over 2 years building OLED 22, the first lightweight 4K OLED production monitor equipped with a feature set that finally enables critical monitoring of 4K images, both on set and in the color suite.”
OLED 22’s hardware design is built around the Small4K Video Processing Architecture, which provides input/output options with eight 12G-SDI and two HDMI 2.0 ports, all of which enable 4K-signal processing. Housed in a rugged, milled-aluminum chassis that includes 36 individual ¼-20-inch mounting points along the top and sides, the OLED 22 weighs 9.3-lbs/4.2kg. A removable handle and feet allow for convenient portability.
The OLED 22 display has virtually no image degradation at any viewing angle, providing a real-time image as vivid and pristine as a final output, whether on set or in post.
Monitor specs check off an impressive list of desired features: 21.6in/55cm screen size, >1,000,000:1 contrast ratio with an absolute black point, 10-bit color depth for nuanced color fidelity, 3840x2160 resolution, 350nit brightness level, and 100% P3 / 135% Rec 709 color gamuts that generate true-to-life color reproduction.
Power options include two hot-swappable power inputs: one 3-pin XLR and a slide-on Dual Battery Plate (Gold Mount & V-Mount options, sold separately), which can be attached via the built-in Smart Rail on the rear side of the monitor. Two 2-pin locking accessory outputs add power flexibility for additional devices.
The SmallHD OLED 22 4K Production Monitor is being offered with a limited-time introductory price of $11,999. Shipments are expected to begin this month.
In addition to OLED 22, SmallHD’s new 4K Production Monitors include Vision 24 and Vision 17 HDR monitors, as well as the Cine 24 4K High-Bright monitor. All are currently available with special limited-time introductory pricing.
