SmallHD 1703-P3X Bolt Sidekick Production Monitor

SmallHD 1703-P3X Bolt Sidekick Production Monitor


Equipped with a reference grade, daylight viewable display, and built-in Teradek wireless receiver, this 17-inch production monitor is a DIT’s dream. It’s literally a complete video village with a ruggedly built exterior. With colour reproduction that rivals OLED technology and the ability to send real-time 3D LUTs downstream, the 17RX saves time, eliminates clutter and provides cinematographers with an accurate view of the post-production look.
