3G plus Dual link outputs on the Decklink 4K
on Aug 12, 2011 at 7:05:00 pm

The Decklink 4K has four SDI outputs and the website says each can operate as single-link, dual-link, or 3Gb outputs... does anyone know if these are configurable so that some can operate with one setting while others operate at others?

Specifically, could a 2K signal be sent out from two outputs be 3G and from two others combined as dual-link? Or do they all have to output an identical signal?

And if it can't put out some 3G and some dual-link does Blackmagic have a product that would serve as a 3G <=> Dual link multiplexer?

Good question. On the 4K board I don't think so. On the quad board it's possible. The 4K board is basically one output and you can set it to be anything you want from SD to 4K. Where as the Decklink Quad board is like 4 independent I/O's

Thanks Joshua,

Unfortunately it looks like the Decklink quad is only HD, I'm hoping to output 2K dual-link and 2K 3G so it looks like I'll have to use my current card or the 4K to output 3G and then add something in front of my one dual-link device.

Yes...sorry..I meant to mention that. It is only up to HD.

Thanks Joshua,

A sort of related question: instead of sending out mixed signals, does Blackmagic make an adapter that could used to down-convert a 2K 3GSDI signal to 1080p?

The issue there is that the BM Ultrascope doesn't accept a 2K 24p RGB signal in any fashion, but I need to have the decklink set to 2K... I can make all the other devices work taking in 2K over SDI, but need to send 1080p to the scopes at the same time...
