Looking to buy 2 HDMI monitors for a DSLR rig. One is for me, the DP. Needs good color, preferably HD. For this one I am tempted by the SmallHD AC7. Can't spend much more than this, I'd rather spend less. 

 

The second monitor is for the 1st AC. Needs to be HD, preferably at least 7" and have focus peaking, but otherwise the image quality does not matter so I'm looking to go cheaper than mine.

 

Also looking for advice on distribution, I have to send the HDMI signal to 3 monitors: mine, the 1st AC's, and video village. How do I do this? Monitor with HDMI passthrough? Powered splitter? Could I use two of the SmallHD 1-to-2 splitters? Are there battery-powered splitters out there?

 

Thanks for your help!

If the video village is further than, say, 25 ft away, you need HD-SDI cables (or wireless). Does you camera support this?
