I'm working on a XDCAM EX 1080p25 project, color grading in Color and rendering as ProRes HQ.
At the end it will be downconverted to Digital Betacam PAL.
Since Decklink Studio doesn't have 25p playback, I'm monitoring my picture as HD 1080i50, connected via analog component out on my SD broadcast monitor and via HDMI on JVC U2711 (I know it's not a broadcast monitor, but this is what I got in editing room).
The problem is that image on monitor is blurred. A lot. And it's really hard to look at it.
Did someone else noticed that?
Other than bad monitoring I need to record some Betacam SP tapes next week, so I would like to know in time can I use Decklink for that job.
I used to have Kona LHe and image on same SD monitor was ok.
Actually, I planned to buy either Kona LHi or Decklink Studio (cause I needed HDMI out) and Decklink was available immediately and it was urgent…
I hope I didn't make a mistake and bought wrong one.
