SmallHD OS3 big Firmware Update with new False Color, Spot-Meter (Waveform) functions and much more.

[09:19 mon,13.November 2017   by ]    

Small HD has released a number of interesting new features for its popular monitor models (FOCUS, 500 Series, 700 Series, UltraBrights, 1300 Series, 1700 Series, 2400 Series, and 3200 Series) with its OS3 firmware update. Among the most important new features are new auto-calibration functions with the SmallHD Color Probe, freely configurable False Color Display, an Image Gallery Viewer and quite cool: a spotmeter built into the Luma waveform.


The latter allows you to freely select a section of the image and then display it in a different color on the luma waveform. In our opinion, False Color still seems to be the tool with the greater practical relevance, but in any case an interesting implementation of the topic of spot measurement.


Here is the promo video of the new features of small HD OS3:

And here's the long list of new features in SmallHD OS3:

Features Added:
Utilize official SmallHD color probe to auto calibrate your monitor. Auto Calibration can be canceled at any time
Auto Calibration shows a progress bar at the top of the display. Once finished, the user can toggle between the new and old calibration before
accepting the new one.

Fully Customizable False Color (Exposure Assist)
When selecting a exposure assist tool options for a “map1, map2, map3” are now selectable. User can create a custom false color for each map. Each map can have up to 10 user defined IRE ranges, and every IRE range’s highlight color can be configured individually. User may delete and modify defined IRE ranges and highlight colors at any time.

Spot Metering in LUMA Waveform
Select a location on the on-screen image and see highlighted data for selection. Spot Metering box size is customizable.

Image Gallery Viewer
Image files are now displayed in thumbnail form instead of list form. The size of the thumbnails can be modified. The files can be sorted in either increasing or decreasing order by Name OR Date. A new element called “Image Gallery” has been added to settings->capture to allow users to peruse their removable media storage at any time, even when no video signal is present.

Adjustable White Point
The user can select a non-standard white point for their input space.
The supported white points are: D65, DCI-P3, 3000K, 5000K, 5600K, 9300K.
When loading a 3D calibration LUT, the user can now specify the white point the
calibration LUT targets separately from the color space that LUT targets.
The White Point targeted by Auto Calibration can be configured in the same way.
