SmallHD Unveils HDR Director's Monitors and Shows us the Affordable 701 Lite 720p Monitor

A robust line of extremely bright HDR production monitors aims to compete with the rugged Panasonics we're used to seeing on set.

There's two 10-bit models for the production monitors, a 32" and a 24", as well as an 8-bit 17". Each monitor vectors towards P3, Rec 709 but you will be able to plug in a colorimeter into the USB 3.0 port and install into the monitor. For on-camera monitors they've added super bright 702, but for filmmakers on a budget they offer the 701 Lite, a less bright 720p monitor with all the same functionality for $699.

I'm with you, Jerry. ;) "Affordable" 720p monitor. That's a subjective term.

The Atomos Ninja Flame at $1,300 seems like a better deal for a 7 inch 1,500 NIT 10-bit HDR monitor with built-in 4K recorder. I expect to see a lot of competition with the pricing of HDR monitors over the next year.
