    Output to HD Monitor

    I'm catching up with the real world and moving from SD to HD (1080) and would like to output to a HD monitor while editing. My old Mojo can't handle this as it's not HD. My graphics card has an HDMI output but this is not for the 'client monitor'. I'm guessing I will need to replace the SD Mojo with an HD capture card (even thogh I don't need to 'capture' anymore as I am now importing from camera cards. Is there an economical solution that anyone knows? Thanks.

    Re: Output to HD Monitor

    You might take a look at the Blackmagic Design series of Decklink cards and Ultrastudio devices.

    The Ultrastudio Mini Monitor is a little device that connects via a thunderbolt connnection and just does HDMI and SDI output...runs about $150.

    The Decklink Mini Monitor is a PC Express card and also just does HDMI and SDI output and runs about $150.

    Re: Output to HD Monitor

    If you only need HD, not 4K, here's another option:  Search E-Bay and pick up a Matrox Mini (MX02)    They still work great for HD (no 4K) and I've seen quite a few on sale very inexpensively as users upgrade to 4K.

    I would go for this, legacy item but still works well with MC 8.

    No HDMI but RGB/YUV to a client monitor.


    P.S. I have one you can borrow, if you want to check it out.

    AFAIK the Matrox Mini (MX02) soes not work with Windows 10. It is great for Windows 7.

    Re: Output to HD Monitor

    I like the AJA Io Express.

    Find it here on Ebay uk.


    but I think for Resolve you need to go with a BM solution...

    Re: Output to HD Monitor

    Depending on your motherboard, you might opt for a Thunderbolt device like AJA T-tap (if your conputer has Thunderbolt or if a TB card can be added to it). Very solid. 

    Given the choice I’d prefer AJA over BlackMagic Design but the latter also work with Resolve, so that may be helpful.

    Re: Output to HD Monitor

    I have Matrox Mini MX02 and it works fine, though it doesn't have an Expresscard to connect to a laptop.

    Re: Output to HD Monitor

    I gave up the MX02 since it's EOL. Took a Black Magic Intensity Pro 4k, works fine with the latest driver.
