For remote wireless and network monitor control, SmallHD’s new Fleet Control App can be installed on a user’s tablet or computer to control one or more monitors at the same time, allowing them to match settings, manage signal and feeds, manage LUTs and Color Pipes and control multiple PageOS Tools via Ethernet or Wi-Fi. PageOS 6supports Wi-Fi functionality on SmallHD monitors with off-the-shelf Wi-Fi adaptors to upgrade firmware or manage the Fleet Control App.

Custom Exposure Assist offers custom control for black clip, white clip, and middle gray for much smoother transitions than Spectrum 1 and 2 modes.

SmallHD have updated EL Zone. Ed Lachman, ASC’s intuitive stop-based exposure tool now supports wider dynamic range cameras. EL Zone works like a virtual spot meter, replacing IRE exposure values with stops.
