Best way to set up with new MacPro

Hey Guys,

Just upgraded to new MacPros and am looking for the best/most affordable option to hook up our FS monitors to them.

Previously, we had AJA or BM cards, but I am hoping that we can do it without having to do expansion chassis.

I am looking to have a big client monitor (probably using the Macs HDMI output) and then the Flanders monitor for accurate color monitoring.

Is it as simple as purchasing a Black Magic Ultra Studio Mini Monitor and then using a Thunderbolt to HDMI adaptor?

Any help would be awesome!

AJA T-Tap. Thunderbolt out of the Mac then SDI to the monitor.

For the client monitor, we loop out of the FSI and use the Hi5 SDI to HDMI adapter to ensure we're feeding good quality video to both monitors.

If you intend to use DaVinci Resolve (and maybe the same for Fusion) I believe you will need a BM I/O solution.
