The Blackmagic Design SmartScope Duo 4K is a new updated model of the SmartScope Duo that now includes 6G-SDI connections so it's the perfect solution for rack mount video and waveform monitoring in SD, HD and Ultra HD television formats.
SmartScope Duo 4K features two large 8 inch LCD screens in a rack mount design and each screen can be switched between video monitoring or a choice of 6 scope displays including waveform, vectorscope, RGB parade, YUV parade, histogram and an audio scope with 16 channels of SDI audio and audio phase meter.
SmartScope Duo 4K overcomes the main difficulties when using multiple monitors, which is trying to match color settings on all monitors. SmartScope Duo 4K connects to your Ethernet network using Mac and Windows software to adjust all your monitors from one central location. This utility also lets you choose between monitoring video or the various types of scope views.
This is a great solution for multi camera monitoring when doing live production. The ATEM range of live production switchers has a fantastic multi view feature, but there is nothing like having an independent screen for each camera source. With the latest production switchers supporting Ultra HD, this updated SmartScope Duo 4K means you get that camera monitoring solution as well as scopes built in for tech monitoring as well.
