The announcement comes after a similar one made at NAB 2016. There X-Rite had announced an agreement with Atomos, to use i1Display Pro for their full line of monitor-recorders including Blade, Shogun-Studio, Inferno and Flame series. X-Rite was at NAB 2016 to show their recently launched ColorChecker Video Targets, effective, timesaving tools for filmmaking production and color workflow, from shooting-to-editing. The tool now has support from 3D-LUT Creator, Color Finale plug-in for Apple’s Final Cut Pro X from Color Grading Central and DaVinci-Resolve by Blackmagic Design.
The partnership means that SmallHD will bundle and support industry acclaimed X-Rite OEM i1Display Pro to seamlessly manage color calibration for their new production-monitor models 1703-HDR, 2403-HDR and 3203-HDR.
“It’s an exciting time to be a filmmaker, as camera technology evolves more rapidly than ever before. With demand for visual content at an all-time high, so is competition.
