SmallHD Focus and Focus TX – NAB 2018

We visited SmallHD at NAB 2018 and they talked to us about three new Focus products they have coming up.

The Focus SDI is a daylight viewable LCD monitor that offers the same functionality and portability as the original FOCUS but offers a full-size SDI input as opposed to a Micro HDMI.

The FOCUS SDI ships with the SmallHD Tilt Arm, which will attach quickly to a cameras handle that has a shoe mount. High-resolution Scopes, customizable False Color, real-time 3D LUTs and many more professional software tools are easily accessible on the FOCUS SDI’s 800 nits bright touchscreen.


The OLED models are a little bigger 1080p wide colour gamut display with edge to edge bonded glass display. The OLED versions share the same mounting and 7.2 out power output option for supplying power to a DSLR and mirrorless cameras.


The FOCUS OLED HDMI is a 1920×1080 resolution, 5.5″ 350 nits OLED touchscreen with a Micro HDMI input. Similar to the original FOCUS monitor, this wide color gamut display has a 7.2v power output to power DSLR/mirrorless cameras.

SmallHD Focus OLED SDIThe FOCUS OLED SDI is identical to the HDMI version, except it has a full-size SDI input. Both have an edge-to-edge bonded glass display, include the SmallHD Tilt Arm mounting solution, and are equipped with the OS3 software suite.


The FOCUS Bolt TX is a 5-inch, daylight viewable touchscreen LCD with a built-in Teradek transmitter. The 500ft transmitter is compatible with the FOCUS Bolt RX, 703 Bolt monitor/receiver, Teradeck Bolt 500 and Sidekick II receivers.


The FOCUS Bolt RX is perhaps the lightest wireless monitor/receiver available. Shipping with the 5-inch touchscreen is the lightweight (extra grippy) monitor handles and Sony L Series battery. The FOCUS Bolt TX/RX add a layer of convenience and creative freedom to wireless


At $1299 USD for the single unit and $2499 for a bundle with both the receiver and transmitter, this is pretty affordable for what you’re getting.
