I know that the Kona 3 crops the 2k material for viewing on a 1080 monitor.. how does the blackmagic show 2k on a 1080 display?

Hi Rick,

You can crop the output to HD or you if you have the right equipment hookup, monitor the entire 2K 2048x1556 frame without the need to crop on a 30" monitor.

The hookup will be:

HD EXtreme -> HDLink Pro -> Dell / Apple / HP 30" display

This will allow full 2K monitoring at full 23.98,24 and 25 frame rate at 2048x1556. Why crop when you can see everything :)


regards

Thanks for the info Kristian. A couple of questions:

1) Does the Decklink or Multibridge scale the to 2K to 1080, as opposed to croppping?

2) Any thoughts about supporting "RED friendly" resolutions like 2048x1024? I think a lot of people want to view 2k at 2:1, and have little need for the full aspect of 2048x1556? I believe there are quite a few 2048x1152 monitors out there that would work nicely. Maybe that's more of an HDLink question.

Thanks!

Hello Kristian....

How do you set up the 2K @ 25fps mode on a HD Extreme?

In my FCP list, only 23.98 and 24 modes are selectable.

25fps is a must for Commercial Post since we shot at 25fps.


thanks!
