IBC 2016: First look at the SmallHD 13″ HDR & Studio monitors

During the IBC show in Amsterdam, SmallHD introduced a brand new addition to their 17″ and 24″ monitor lineup, the 13″ 1303, which comes in Studio and HDR variants. Apparently the company always planned on bringing out more options between their 7″ and 17″ monitors, but they had to wait for the panel to be ready.

These monitors share a lot in common with the others in the series, including both HDMI/SDI input and output. The 13″ HDR version has all of the newest tech inside, including a 1500 nit display with P3 color. Viewing angle is also tremendous, so these monitors will do well when you’re on location, and you want something that’s not too big or too small.

The regular Studio 1303 doesn’t have the same impressive screen, as it’s only 400 nits, so you’re more likely going to be using it inside as the name suggests.

The monitors can be powered through 4-pin XLR, and SmallHD offers a Gold Mount and V-mount plate that attaches to the back of the monitor and works through D-Tap to 4-pin XLR.
