question about hdmi output of decklink extreme
on Sep 19, 2008 at 10:46:22 am

I am thinking of bying a decklink extreme card for my macpro / fcp setup.Also another 24" lcd display for monitoring
My question is this: Do i need hdlink for monitoring or the hdmi output of decklink extreme is enough for monitoring in hdmi- input monitors
Thanks in advance

Hi Hector

The HDMI output of the HD Extreme 2 is a fully fledged HDMI output, for the full information please check the technical specification here:

http://www.blackmagic-design.com/products/hd/techspecs/

The HDLink is able to convert the SDI output of the HD Extreme 2 into a DVI or HDMI output (using an adapter) for use with computer LCD screens. If your screen already excepts HDMI input, then you can just go directly out of the Decklink card via HDMI into your screen, as long as it supports the appropriate resolutions (1080i, 720p etc)

So to connect to a HDMI monitor or TV is a great solution, especially to use a cheap HDTV as a HD Monitoring solution!

To clarify, can the HD Extreme 2 (or 3) do true (FULL HD) 1080p over hdmi?

thanks.
