Multibridge Pro capture via SDI.
on Jun 5, 2012 at 1:40:47 am

Hello Gentleman,



I am trying to capture with the Multibridge Pro SDI, but I can not get it to recognize the signal, is there a specific way to set Multibridge in order to capture?.


Thanks in advance for the advice.

Hello Javier,
what is the software you're using to capture?
If you're using Media Express under Windows;
Control Panel>HW&Sound>Settings>Set Input

Hello Paolo,


I appreciate your time and response, I am using Media Express 3.1 for MAC Lion 10.7.4, I can not get Media Express to recognize the signal.



Regards,


Javier.

Hello Margus,


The source is SDI out from a Panasonic HPX300 camera.



Thanks for your time.

Hello Margus,



Yes, it works just perfect with other gear. The inputs an outputs on the Multibridge Pro are pre configured or we have to configure?.


Thanks.

Hello,


If you refer to the Multibridge Utility settings, here you have a link to a scree capture, I can not make modifications, I think in order to make changes Multibridge has to be connected trough USB, I currently have it connected trough PCIe.





Thanks.

Hello Javier,
the Multibridge Pro is a fantastic "DUAL USE" device.

If you don't connect it to your PC/MAC using the PCI-e adapter, it works as a dual channel converter from Analog to SDI and from SDI to ANALOG. To configure the conversion you have to connect once the Multibridge to your PC/MAC via USB 2.0, and you will use the "Blackmagic Multibridge Utility" (your screen capture).

When you connect the Multibridge to your PC/MAC using the PCI-e adapter, it becomes a capture device, very similar to the Decklink HD Extreme 2, and you can configure it using "Blackmagic Desktop Video 9.5.2" software, that you can run:
‚‚- On Mac OS X, open the System Preferences and look in the “Other” category to locate the Blackmagic Design icon. Click the Blackmagic Design icon to gain access to the settings.
‚‚- On Windows 7, open the system Control Panel and click on “Hardware and Sound” to reveal the Blackmagic Design Control Panel. Click the Blackmagic Design Control Panel to gain access to the settings.

You can set the input in the "Settings" Tab.

In my opinion the Multibridge Pro is the best product ever made by BMD, the only missing thing was (and is) the lack of a dedicated PCI-e adapter for laptops (express card) and now for Thunderbolt.
