Product Overview SmartScope Duo features two large 8 inch LCD screens in a compact rack mount design that is less than an inch thick. SmartScope Duo includes powerful image processing allowing each of the two screens to be independently selected between video monitoring and waveform monitoring. There are 7 types of waveform display that can be selected by the user, including waveform, vectorscope, RGB parade, YUV parade, histogram and an audio scope with 16 channels of SDI audio and audio phase meter.

SmartScope Duo looks identical to Blackmagic Design’s popular SmartView Duo dual video monitoring product, but includes the broadcast accurate waveform monitoring feature, so for the first time, customers can have waveform monitoring within video monitoring installations that fits perfectly into the design of the facility.

SmartScope Duo is also a good solution for general video monitoring as it handles all SD, HD and 3G-SDI video standards, and all screens can be remotely adjusted via the customers Ethernet network. SmartScope Duo can be installed into equipment racks for local monitoring in post production, or for multi monitor video walls in master control rooms or for camera monitoring for production switchers!

One of the main difficulties when installing multiple monitors is attempting to match color settings on all monitors. SmartScope Duo eliminates this problem by connecting to an Ethernet network using the included Mac and Windows software to adjust all your monitors from one central location. This utility also lets customers choose between monitoring video or the various types of scope views.

SmartScope Duo includes full tally features so it is perfect for live broadcasters. Unlike a simple tally light, SmartScope Duo includes tally borders that can be independently displayed in red, green or blue. Each screen features an independent tally in the three colors so customers can signal to the user more information than a simple on air status. Tally is connected via a standard parallel pin connector on the rear of SmartScope Duo and provides full contact closure compatibility with all switcher and automation systems.

"In the past high quality broadcast accurate waveform monitoring has always been extremely high cost and physically large and cumbersome, so its been very difficult for customers to install waveform monitoring everywhere they need it, and even harder to install it in mobile situations such as fly away kits," said Grant Petty, CEO, Blackmagic Design. "We think SmartScope Duo is the perfect solution, as it builds broadcast accurate scopes into the monitor itself, so customers can simply choose between monitoring video, or one of the 7 scope types built into the product! It could not be easier to use!" Features Perfect SDI Monitoring

SmartView monitors are the perfect choice to add SDI monitoring anywhere you need it. You can use them for broadcast, post production, on set monitoring, flyaway kits, broadcast trucks and more! When you're working with live production switchers you can build a video wall of camera monitors in your control room and see all your sources. You can mix and match different SmartView models in a rack for a customized monitoring solution where you can view your images and choice of scope displays side by side!


Intelligent SDI Monitoring With Broadcast Quality Scopes

When you need to analyze image quality more accurately than simply looking at the picture then use SmartScope Duo’s built in waveform monitoring! You can view two independent sources simultaneously and conveniently switch between monitoring or scope views whenever you need! Choose from waveform, vectorscope, RGB parade, YUV parade, histogram and audio phase and level displays, and get broadcast accurate waveform monitoring that shows everything you need to know technically about your video and audio signals. SmartScope Duo removes the need for separate expensive scopes!

Ultra Thin Design

SmartView monitors feature an elegant front panel that is designed to allow multiple SmartView HD, SmartView Duo and SmartScope Duo models to be mounted next to each other to create a beautiful wall of monitors that share the same appearance and width! Lightweight and ultra thin, SmartView is perfect for broadcast trucks and fly away kits! When you need to mount SmartView in the extreme top or bottom of an equipment rack, the units can be rotated upside down and the images will automatically flip to provide the optimum viewing Perfect

Perfect Monitoring

SmartView monitors are ideal for high end broadcast monitoring because they feature high quality filtering and scaling, so you retain fine detail in the image. The fully digital design with high quality SDI inputs ensures precise color that’s easy to manage across multiple displays. SmartView includes ethernet so you can connect them to your network and centrally control all your monitors from a single computer using the SmartView software utility. SmartView also includes integrated tally that is fully compatible with many switchers or automation systems.
