    Symphony Nitris DX 10-bit Output

    In order to output 10-bit over HDSDI, are you guys using dual link?  I've been told that in order to output 10-bit, we have to use dual link, RGB.  I find this hard to believe as HDSDI normally is 10-bit over single link.

    If dual link is actually the only way to output 10-bit, how do you activate dual link?  Is it automatic?

    Hmmmm, so none of you are color correcting in 10-bit?

    You get 10bit out of HDSDI if it's configured correctly with a single link. Even SDI supported 10bit for layoff to DIgibetas.

    We have HDSDI displays and test gear and I can see the difference between 8bit and 10bit on them. Thats using AJA and BM hardware.

    10bit RGB and 10bit YCbCr are very different.  You would need dual link for 10bit RGB.

    Which are you refering to?

    Re: Symphony Nitris DX 10-bit Output

    Pat, please explain how you configure this correctly!  I have 10 bit material and am only seeing 8 bit on the scope.  Tried RGB output and YCbCr.  Bits 1 & 2 are stuck bits and values increment by 4.  Jef, at this point, I'd like to see any color space output at 10-bit as a starting point.

    We only use Y B-Y R-Y.

    RGB would need dual link to get RGB at 10 bit.

    Jdw. I just have 10 bit content and I get 10bit out but I don;t have a Nitris DX box. I have 3rd party IO

    Thanks Pat, are you getting 10-bit with both the Aja and Black Magic?

    Re: Symphony Nitris DX 10-bit Output

    We do.  Or at least Avid tells us we do.

    Can you toggle the Green box at the bottom left corner of the Sequence?  For me this toggle Yellow / Green,  Green and Green w/ 10 over.  The last being 10 bit out.

    This is with AJA Kona 3 IO.  No Avid IO here.

    Oh goodness, hanging my head in shame...

    Yes, toggling the video output box to 10-bit solves the issue.  It's going to take me a while to recover from my oversight here.  I even talked to Avid about it and they missed it too.  Thanks for all the help with this!
