SmallHD Launches Ultra 7: Next-Gen Heavy-Duty Ultra-Bright Monitor

Raleigh, NC, January 18, 2024 — SmallHD today announced Ultra 7, a new ultra-durable and ultra-bright flagship monitor in their Smart 7 Series. Ultra 7 features a next-generation platform powered by the same technology that drives SmallHD’s elite 4K production monitors, integrates with Teradek’s new Bolt 6 wireless platform, and is engineered to perform in any production environment.

“When we set out to design our next generation of ultrabright handhelds, we knew we had to create a monitor that was a major leap forward,” said Greg Smokler, VP Cine Products. “Ultra 7 combines the processing power of our 4K production monitors with a rugged chassis and heat-management system built to withstand the harshest production conditions.”

Features and Highlights

Ultra 7’s color-accurate touch screen can display up to 2300nits full-screen luminance, enabling visibility in any environment, and SmallHD has provided the powerful I/O required by the dynamic needs of cinematic productions. 6G-SDI inputs allow ingest and passthrough of up to 4Kp30 video signals, enabling critically-accurate focus and detail when zoomed in pixel-to-pixel. Dual 2-pin power connectors enable users to output power for accessories, SmallHD’s award-winning PageOS software can be controlled flexibly via touchscreen or joystick, and large tactile buttons offer the ultimate level of customization and functionality. 

Durability, Ingress Protection, Versatility

Ultra 7 stands out for its enhanced durability. This is SmallHD’s first IP-Certified monitor at IP53, which is defined by protection against ingress of liquids and fine particles, and a sealed heat management system allows the Ultra 7 to operate in variable temperatures ranging from 0ºC to 40ºC. The machined chassis is strengthened by a new design that includes raised edges protecting the front-glass of the display and shock-absorbing silicone bumpers that help with tumbles and impacts. 

Quick-Release Sunhood

SmallHD’s commitment to ergonomics in every element of the Ultra 7 extends to the reimagined quick-release sunhood (sold separately). This new design clips securely into the front of the monitor without tools or screws, using hidden magnets for quick conversion to a 3- or 4-sided hood. The new sunhood is constructed with an anti-reflective felt underside that protects the monitor glass when the hood closes and transforms into a durable cover.

Teradek Bolt 6, Inside

Ultra 7 can be purchased with a fully-integrated Teradek Bolt 6 transmitter or receiver inside the same-size chassis as the standard model. These integrated wireless monitors will feature a new rugged antenna cap to reduce antenna damage and will be available in Bolt 6 750 and 1500 range models. Ultra 7 RX kits will ship with handles, a padded strap, and a Wooden Camera Micro Battery Plate (GM, VM, or B-mount).

Smart Connectivity

An integrated Ethernet and 5-Pin USB port enable flexible and intuitive PageOS-integrated camera control options–anchored to every page–for ARRI, RED®, and Sony VENICE cameras, while TX and RX models will support wireless camera control over the clear airwaves of the 6GHz spectrum.
