Brother Offers Professional Camera Operators a Convenient Alternative to Traditional Monitors and Viewfinders with its New SDI-Compatible AiRScouter Head-Mounted Display

What do you do when the tools you use every day become a constraint? A camera operator can use a viewfinder to see what he’s shooting, if the camera’s positioned where he can get to it, and he may still have to contort himself or lay on the ground to get the shot. A gimbal operator can frame a shot with the monitor on her rig, but she must take her eyes off her environment and where she’s walking to do so. What if there was an easy way to remove these constraints? What if you could take the viewfinder off your camera or the monitor off your rig and put it where it’s most convenient: right in front of your eye?

Brother International Corporation is excited to announce the AiRScouter WD-330C, the latest in its line of uniquely adjustable high-definition head-mounted displays. This innovative viewfinder solution helps operators get the shots they want with comfort and ease. The new model accepts an HD-SDI input for a seamless connection to a wide range of professional cameras, gimbals, and stabilizer systems. The wearer can position a 720p HD display with a virtual screen size comparable to a 19” monitor over the eye of their choice, and they can fine-tune the image with the display’s adjustable focus.

The AiRScouter WD-330C joins a line-up that includes the HDMI-compatible AiRScouter WD-200B, which was nominated for a Technical Innovation Award by the Society of Camera Operators and identified as the “easy way to see through the camera lens” by RotorDrone magazine. Be among the first to see the AiRScouter WD-330C at ShowStoppers and at NAB in Booth C6540. For more information, including full specifications, product images, and video, visit
