The SmallHD Cine 5 that was launched at IBC 2022 is now shipping. The Cine 5 is the first monitor to ship in SmallHD’s new Smart 5 Series 5-inch Touchscreen Monitors, which feature the recently released PageOS 5 operating system.

The Smart 5 Monitor Series comprises the Ultra 5, Cine 5, and Indie 5 touchscreen displays. There are also two additional wireless versions of the Ultra 5 (TX/RX). The Smart 5 series isn’t being targeted at the same user who would buy a SmallHD Action 5 Touchscreen 5″ On-Camera Monitor. That monitor was an entry-level product for a completely different audience. The Smart 5 Monitor Series is being squarely targeted at working professionals in the film and TV industry.

The Smart 5 series was designed in response to the significant demand for smaller touchscreen monitors with the same quality and functionality of SmallHD’s Smart 7 and Ultrabright Series. What is nice with the Smart 5 series is that users will have access to SmallHD’s camera-control licenses for ARRI, RED, and Sony VENICE.

The Ultra, Cine, and Indie in the Smart 5 Series represent three tiers of brightness, I/O capability, and physical interface options to match a wide range of on-set workflows. For example, if someone wants the top-of-the-line 3000nit powerhouse with physical buttons and an ethernet port, you can choose the Ultra 5. However, if you don’t have the budget or need for an Ultra 5 but you still want to be able to control your RED KOMODO with a daylight-viewable touchscreen, then the Indie 5 or Cine 5 would be a better option.

The Cine 5 combines a touchscreen experience with a side-mounted joystick and back button, 2000nits of brightness, 3G-SDI (I/O), HDMI 2.0 (I/O), 2-pin locking power connector, and a 5-pin locking USB (for RED Camera Control). The Cine 5 will also ship in Fall 2022.
