The thinner brother

Assistant Camera Monitor

Continuing with the success of the Gen2 Steadicam monitor, we introduce the 7" on board camera monitor. Designed for both AC and camera operator use, the Cinetronic AC-7 offers unparalleled brightness and daylight viewability. The AC-7 features a rugged cnc machined aluminum housing, designed for years of use and abuse in the field. The AC-7 is small, lightweight and user friendly, featuring an anti reflective bonded glass front. The sealed design protects against water and dust intrusion, for use in all environments, without worry.

The benefits of a bigger brother

The AC-7 and the Gen2 Steadicam Monitor share a lot of features. Below we wrote it all down for you.

The Beauty of Glass

Our monitor is built with an all glass front, providing a beautiful, functional and rugged design. The glass front allows for a completely sealed front face, with embedded touch buttons. This removes any failure prone mechanical switches, and keeps the monitor sealed from the elements. Glass bonding seals against any dirt or moisture entering the display area. Hardened glass resists scratches, and provides years of use.

Simple, Elegant, Rugged

We believe a design should look as well as it functions. We combine gentle curves with a glass front for an elegant mix of glass and aluminum. Our housings are CNC machined in house out of billet aluminum, yielding a very strong but lightweight design, able to withstand years of on set use and abuse.

Our's goes to 11

People often ask the secret to our unparalleled brightness, and daylight view ability. The answer is ours goes to 11, which of course is 1 better. We combine the brightest LCD screens available with optically bonded glass, and military grade Anti-Reflective coating, to give you the best sunlight viewable image available.


Other manufacturers claim to be future-proof, with USB software upgrades, but what about the hardware? Our monitors are a modular design, which allows for future hardware upgrades as well. The display can be easily upgraded when new LCD panels are available. We also have USB software upgradability, to add new features as they are introduced. We hope this will be the last monitor you will buy (Unless you want a second one of course).

Real World Experience

We understand the demand of working on set, and how the equipment will be used. This allows us to build equipment that simply works, and stands up to the rigors of use on set. We welcome feedback from end users, and use it to shape our future products. Every owner of our equipment is part of our design team.

No Touch Zone

Unlike other touch screen monitors, our monitor features a No Touch Zone and a touching zone (kinda like a first date). We encourage you to touch the touch buttons below the display, and not the display itself. Who wants to look at fingerprints on the image all day anyways?

Made in USA

We are proud to design and built our monitors in USA. From the housing to the glass, and everything inside, we are proud to have it all made by American companies, and American workers.
