HDMI output card
on Apr 15, 2013 at 7:52:10 pm

I'm looking for an HDMI output card for my Mac Pro tower. I have MC6 running on my mac pro with 2.8GHz quad-core xeon, 10GB 800MHZ Ram. Looking for something to provide video for a client monitor, compatible with MC6 and beyond. Added plus if it will output any video i play on the desktop, or duplicate what's being played on the desktop.

Can you give me recommendations?

I agree with Shane.

Make sure whatever card you get has the ability to output analog audio. When you have an output card, Avid will port the audio through that card. We had this problem with the T-tap and a Thunderbolt device. We ended up having to deembed the audio to hear it.

thank you gentlemen.
the Decklink Intensity Pro looks like it's what i need. it doesn't list Avid as what it processes. Can anyone confirm it works with MC6?

According to their website, it is compatible. The driver package also installs the driver for Avid.

Thank You Again. I didn't see MC6 listed in the "World's most popular editing software", or when i looked on the B&H site. that threw me off. Thank you for tyhe confirmation. this is exactly what i need.
