PageBuilder OS
All SmallHD on-camera monitors are equipped with the powerful and easy-to-use PageBuilder operating system.

Reference Grade Cinema Color
Each 1703-P3 monitor comes precalibrated for DCI-P3 mastering, Covering 100% DCI-P3 with a Delta E average of 0.5. Easily install your own 3D LUT calibration with advanced color management solutions like Light Illusion's, LightSpace CMS, or SpectraCal's CalMAN. Load any 3D LUT via SD card using SmallHD’s ColorFlow 3D LUT engine. 

Software That Eliminates Hardware
Pagebuilder OS enables you to send your video signal downstream via the Output Preview page. Any LUTs applied to the Output Preview page will also be mirrored downstream. Easily convert HDMI/SDI signals with Cross Conversion.

HD Scopes with Pixel Accurate Data Analysis
Display up to three, fully customizable Scopes on screen at a time. Utilize Color Picker to show raw pixel values from the displayed video.

Expose with Confidence
Exposure Assist supports both ARRI and Spectrum based false color, with built in IRE guides for reference. Utilize 2x Zebra to warn you when reaching a brightness level of your choosing. This is great for matching exposure across shots and cameras.

Dual View
Monitor two input sources simultaneously. You can apply LUT’s and tools to each source individually. Great for monitoring A/B cameras or pre and post LUT footage. You can also apply tools to each page individually.

Custom Focus Assist & Peaking Tools
Focus assist creates a bright highlight on in-focus subject matter; highly recommended when focusing on the fly. Focus Peaking increases the image sharpness allowing more detailed focusing. Change your color and intensity of your focus tools.

Versatile Image Framing
Select standard markers and safety areas that can be overlaid on the display as lines or matte overlays with custom opacity level and colors. Default aspect ratios include 4:3, 1.85, 2.39:1, 16:9 and Custom (user selectable).
