HDLink Pro 3D DisplayPort -> DVI-D
on Mar 13, 2011 at 3:37:44 am

I'm getting an HDLink Pro to use with my DeckLink and JVC monitor which lacks SDI.

I intend to upgrade the JVC at some point – likely with a DisplayPort compatible monitor – so it seems wise to get the DisplayPort model of the HDLink over the DVI-D model.

Am I right in thinking that in order to get to the DVI-D input on my current monitor I simply need a passive DisplayPort to DVI-D cable or adapter? (HD only, no dual link for 2k currently required.)

(A simpler question, if it's the right one, might be: is the DisplayPort model "DisplayPort Multi-mode" compatible?)

You could even get a DisplayPort to HDMI converter.

The answer was yes, the HDLink Pro 3D DisplayPort works perfectly with my JVC with both BMD's recommended Monoprice Displayport to DVI-D adapter, and a cheap DisplayPort to DVI-D cable from Amazon.

Which begs the question, who *wouldn't* be better off buying the DisplayPort model of the HDLink over the DVI-D model?
