In addition to all StarliteHD+ functionalities, the StarliteHD-m, with metadata aggregator is really an electronic toolbox; this small monitor can provide the necessary tools, whatever the job or the requirement:
For the focus puller (zoom, peaking, focus puller view),
For the script assistant (record/playback, metadata view),
For the user of stabilized equipment (virtual horizon).

StarliteHD-m "Metadator"

Monitor - Recorder with metadata agregator

The Missing Link between Cameras, Lenses, Post Productions & VFX
Simple to use - no hassle to set-up
Simple MultiCam use with one monitor per camera

Available for most of top camera brands

Despite of its small form factor, the StarliteHD-m is an advanced electronic toolbox

This remarkable monitor provides the necessary tools, whatever the job or the requirement:
For the focus puller (zoom, peaking, focus puller view),
For the script assistant (record/playback, metadata view, PDF report),
For the user of stabilized equipment (virtual horizon),

But the essential power of the StarliteHD-m resides in its ability to gather information from the different smart devices it is connected to :
Metadata transmitted through the SDI signal,
Camera information through the Ethernet link,
Lens metadata through Cooke /i or Zeiss eXtended serial link

Lens file and post production

Recent developments of lenses give access to critical information: shading, distortion map, inertial data or illumination tables that are available through a direct serial connection.
Basic informations are often available through the camera mount and transferred to the HD-SDI output but the advanced data, necessary for the post production and special FX must be collected directly from the lens.

The StarliteHD-m is the missing link - It agregates data from lenses and cameras.
Files are generated onto a SD card and are immediately available to be processed through the plugins developped by the lens manufacturer, providing a non-negligible gain of time. No need of complicated software to do that.

A set of cables is all you need to recover the lens data

HD-SDI BNC cable

Basic lens information provided by Cooke /i, LDS (Arri)
Camera information from RDD18 (Sony) or ARRI protocol.

Lens Reader™

Cooke /i3, /i², /i and Zeiss eXtended basic and advanced metadata.

Ethernet cable

More information gathered to the metadata file.

TC in (Lemo3 "00")

Gathers precise Time Code (LTC type) from the camera.

Manufacturing quality

The StarliteHD-m housing is extremely rugged, machined in aviation-grade aluminium
A wide range of accessories is planned, from battery support to detachable sun hood and more.
