The SmallHD DP7-Pro OLED is a rich-color DP7-Pro model, capable of producing "true blacks" (no "glow") and a high color gamut as a result of its OLED display, which in contrast to LCD displays doesn't require a backlight and can produce its own colors. This model is also fully touchscreen, except for a scroll wheel on each top corner that both navigates through all the features as well as pushes-in to make selections, useful in case you attach a sunshade that blocks access to the screen. Like the other DP7-Pro models, this OLED model also offers highly flexible 3D LUT support and an extensive set of monitoring tools, including scopes, and is designed with a multi hot key interface that allows for an efficient workflow.
The DP7-Pro OLED has a 7.7" OLED display with a 1280 x 800 HD resolution and 8-bit color depth. The display has a Gorilla Glass screen, which is scratch-resistant and highly fingerprint-resistant. Connections include HD-SDI and HDMI input and output, with the inputs simultaneously active, as well as a Hirose input that supports an optional SmallHD Component/Composite breakout cable. The SDI output can be doubled as an input so you can toggle between two live SDI signals. The input signal can be output via either of the outputs or both at the same time. This model additionally has a discreet SmallHD proprietary X-Port accessory slot on the rear that allows for bulk-free integration with accessories such as the SmallHD Wireless Dock for Paralinx receivers. The monitor is super-tough, made with a reinforced milled aluminum housing capable of withstanding the pressure of a 4x4 truck running over it, yet it weighs only 1.2 lb.
The DP7-Pro OLED comes loaded with many preset LUTs and is capable of detecting and displaying nearly every type of LUT you upload. The LUTs upload via simple SD card transfer and can be organized into custom folders. The ability to monitor an image with a LUT applied lets you see what the image will look like when the LUT is permanently applied in post production, lets you analyze whether you're satisfied with the look and whether any lighting adjustments need to be made on set, and also allows you to show the look to a client or director on set for review.
The hot key interface consists of 24 hot keys that instantly appear on the screen when you run your hand over proximity sensors located on the borders of the front panel. The hot keys are separated eight per desktop page, across three pages, and are touchscreen accessible (as well as scroll wheel accessible). The hot keys are assignable with functions such as toggling LUTs on and off. The user interface is lockable via a physical switch to prevent interferences during production.
The DP7-Pro OLED ships with a 4GB SD card for uploading LUTs, a power supply, and microfiber cloth. It supports V-Mount, Gold-Mount, and DV batteries via optional battery plate/bracket combinations. (To attach a battery, you'll need a DP7 Battery Adapter Plate and the battery bracket particular to the battery of your choice. The battery attaches to the battery bracket.)
