SmallHD 31.5” OLED monitor


SmallHD has officially announces the Quantum 32,  a new 31.5” OLED monitor designed to provide reference HDR/SDR images for post-production final color grading, as well as critical on-set monitoring for Cinematographers, DITs, and Directors.

The Quantum 32 features a 3840 x 2160 true 10-bit Quantum Dot OLED display with a peak brightness of 1000nits and a contrast ratio of 1,500,000:1.

Quantum 32 leverages next-gen Quantum Dot OLED display technology that is claimed to combine unprecedented luminance and color uniformity with an exceptionally wide viewing angle. As a complete set-to-post monitoring solution, Quantum 32 is stated to meet the highest standards for picture contrast and color accuracy, with customizable software tools as well as a rugged and lightweight chassis, rich with integrated mounting options and accessories.

This collaboration with Samsung Display is claimed to allow SmallHD to combine their world-leading quantum-dot OLED display technology with SmalHD’s Emmy Award-winning monitor platform to deliver the best monitor display SmallHD has ever made.

Quantum Dot OLED Technology

Quantum 32’s Quantum Dot OLED self-emissive display panel is an innovative implementation of 2023 Nobel Prize-winning nanotechnology. Developed by Samsung Display, QD-OLEDs direct high-energy light from blue organic LED (OLED) into a layer of printed red and green quantum dots. The quantum dots are optimized for maximum light transmission; when the quantum dot sub-pixels are excited by blue light, they become photoluminescent, emitting very pure red and green light while the blue light is directly passed through. The result is an exceptionally wide range of volumetric color expressions that more closely approximate human vision when compared to conventional OLED.

Inputs & Outputs

  • SDI: 4x 12G-SDI Input
  • SDI 4x 12G-SDI Output
  • HDMI: 1x HDMI 2.0 In
  • HDMI: 1x 2.0 Out
  • Control Ports: RJ-45 Ethernet
  • Power Input: 1x 3-pin XLR
  • Battery Options: 1x Dual-GM/VM Batt.Plate (26V) (optional accessory)
  • Power Outputs: 2x 2pin (12V / 2A combined), 1x USB-A (2.4A), 1x USB-A (1.5A), 1x USB-C (5V / 1.5A)


The SmallHD PageOS operating system is the intuitive monitor control center that has become ubiquitous on movie sets around the world. Adding to an already robust feature set that includes exposure tools like EL Zone, Waveform, Vectorscope, and Monitor Calibration Wizard with Calman integration, SmallHD’s next update will include new features and tools such as:

●     Simplified Color Pipe User Interface

●     New rotary control knobs for improved tactile adjustment of tools and settings

●     Multi-view – compare multiple inputs, color pipes, and LUTS

●     Fleet Control monitor network app

●     WiFi adapter support for wireless monitor control

Durability & Versatility

The SmallHD Unibody Smart Chassis offers multiple, interchangeable mounting points, DC power IN and 2-pin power OUT, pre-threaded (M4) 100mm pattern mount, dovetail mounting rail for battery plates and other accessories, and support for a new WiFi dongle.

The Quantum 32 ships ready for color-critical studio and broadcast desktop use and includes a top handle and cheese plate inserts for mobile field production configurations.

Price & Availability

The SmallHD 31.5” OLED monitor will be available in the northern hemisphere summer for $12,999 USD. It will be interesting to see how it compares to the Flanders Scientific XMP310 which retails for $10,995 USD.
