SmartScope Duo 4K Feature Request

PostFri Aug 09, 2019 6:04 pm

Hey BM team, I love the smart scope duo 4K. It's great to have dedicated scopes in the color bay and they look way nicer (and are much quieter) than scopes I've used in the past.

I am wondering if there are any plans to update the scopes to be as feature rich as the software scopes in Resolve 16? Would be great to get more parity between them. More guides, views, and options would be fantastic.

Second! I have these as well and it's great to have physical scopes, but compared to the Resolve scopes the features are kind of depressing. I'd love to see colorized scopes, more overlay options and range definitions. It's just nicer to have these directly under the monitor and in a clear position in the signal path.

BM scopes are not very good (in short words) and I think not well maintained/updated.

Yes!
I'm surprised,
that Grant, because not even reaches through
and resells a scope with wrong values, and does not bring any updates out.
You know that the Wete in HD are wrong!
But they do nothing!

I hope they come with a redesigned 12G version with correct values soon.

We need 12G scopes and 12G dual monitors, because those 3G Douviews are not cutting it anymore in a 4k environment. #12G #Redesign #4K50Needed

Blackmagic does not comment on future product, Nor will they react on feature requests often.

This is a USER forum. There are a few BMD employees here as Moderators, Which will help solve and sort big issues. But the SmartScope Duo 4K is an old product. ( Came to market 4 or 5 years ago) and most likely to be upgraded soon to a new model or go End Of Life. Don't hold your breath on a software update for this unit. ;)
