I have a question and would appreciate your input. Would you rather have your 1080 video from all other cameras converted to 720P to accommodate the 480p out of the Canon 5D OR would you rather have your 1080 HDMI out converted to 1080 SDI and just use a separate converter when using the 5D?
I have recently built a 5.6 " camera on board monitor. It converts HDMI to SDI at what ever format your HDMI is in. Up to 1080P. It does not however convert 480p to SDI. There is no chipset which does this.
The other 5.6 In monitor that converts hdmi to SDI does it at 720p 59.94. To accomplish this they are sending the sdi out from the back end resolution of the panel which is 1280 x 720. Which is great if you have a 5D.
But .... if you have ANY of the other cameras out on the market that output 1080 HDMI while recording, you will likely want your SDI output to be 1080 also. You would not want your sdi output down-converted to 720.
And it takes 3G SDI. It has lots of great features and more on the way including High Brightness 800 NIT.
waveform / vector-scope/ peaking in red and image flip all coming in the Pro Version due out in April. We will have an upgrade path for all these features from our current models.
