Lilliput is a company I haven’t really thought about in the last few years. They were one of the first to make an affordable 7 inch field monitor with a whopping 1024×600 resolution for under $200. Since then most of their monitors have been derivatives of the same concept. However at NAB this week, Devin and I saw the new Lilliput Q7 and Q5 field monitors and we were pretty impressed with the new design.
These two new panels feature a rather nice looking 1920×1080 screen resolution with a very a sharp IPS display. The design and build have gotten a lot better with the Q7 and Q5 field monitors vs the previous generation lilliput monitors, but they still haven’t caught up to the design and build of the higher end SmallHD 501 and 701 line. That said you can currently pick the Lilliput Q7 for $580 and we should see the Lilliput Q5 for sale in the next few months with an estimated price of $475 (according to lilliput’s booth reps).
