The rugged Transvideo 8″ CineMonitorHD8 X-SBL Evolution Monitor from ARRI offers super-bright, 1000 cd/m² viewing for on-camera or stabilizer use. Supporting video resolutions up to 1080p60, it incorporates 3G/HD/SD-SDI, mini-HDMI, composite, and component inputs. Video is output via one 3G/HD/SD-SDI port and one reclocked HD/SD-SDI port. Features include an eXtreme SuperBright anti-glare bonded screen with a 960 x 540-pixel display zone, a 900:1 contrast ratio, log support, advanced image controls, and both timecode and tally displays.

Compatible with Cooke /i and ARRI LDS lens metadata, Transvideo’s LensReader function enables you to display data for select lenses on the monitor in real time. This handy tool for camera assistants offers both a Mobile view where FIZ scales move as on an actual lens and a Static view where the markers move on the FIZ scales. Especially handy for gimbal and stabilizer use, the CineMonitorHD8 XSBL has a built-in, gyro-stabilized VirtualHorizon2 function.

Image controls include focus assist, several waveforms, vectorscope, and histogram displays, false color, a frame-line generator, adjustable markers, and audio monitoring. The HD8 XSBL is housed in a durable aluminum casing sporting both a V-mount battery plate and a 4-pin mini-XLR power input. It comes with shoulder strap pins, a bottom slide, a short BNC cable, a USB adapter for software updates, a screen protector, a microfiber cleaning cloth and bag, and a hard carrying case with custom-cut foam.
