3 Monitor Setup
on Mar 6, 2013 at 5:28:18 am

Hey guys,

Quick question, wanted to make sure Im correct. I want to run three monitors while I edit.. I am using 2 now, everything works great. Just purchased a 32" LCD TV that I want to utilize for clients to see my Program Window in Premier Pro.

*If I purchase the Blackmagic Intensity Pro, Will I be able to use all three monitors?

2 DVI through my current graphics card (Nividia GeForce 8800 GT)
1 HDMI through the Intensity Pro


Current Set Up:
MacPro 3,1
NVIDIA GeForce 8800GT
2x - 22" Acer Monitors
OSX - 10.6.3
Processor - 2x 3GHz Quad Core Intel Xeon
Memory - 8GB

Or am I way off and should do something different?

Yes as long as whatever is on the timeline, is the signal that BMD Intensity Pro supports.

This may be dumb, but should I be looking under "SD/HD Format Support" on their spec sheet?

"HD Format Support:
1080i50, 1080i59.94, 1080i60, 1080p23.98, 1080p24, 1080p25, 1080p29.97, 1080p30, 720p50, 720p59.94 and 720p60."


So If my timeline has 1080p29.97 footage, I'll be all set? Or is there a different list of supported signals I should be looking for?

Thanks again,
Very Helpful

That's it.
