FREMONT, CA — Blackmagic Design (www.blackmagicdesign.com) has released the Teranex Mini SDI to DisplayPort 8K HDR, an 8K DisplayPort monitoring solution for monitors such as the new Apple Pro Display XDR. With dual on-screen scope overlays, HDR, scaled and pixel-by-pixel modes, and 33 point 3D LUTs, the Teranex Mini SDI to DisplayPort has been specifically designed for use in professional film and television workflows.
Teranex Mini SDI to DisplayPort 8K HDR is well suited for film studios and broadcasters who need professional but affordable color accurate monitoring. The front panel includes controls and a color display for monitoring the video input, audio meters and video standard indication. With Pro Display XDR, this panel can be used to control display settings, such as switching reference modes and adjusting brightness.
The rear panel has Quad Link 12G-SDI for HD, Ultra HD as well as up to 8K formats. There is a USB‑C style connection for monitors such as the Pro Display XDR, and two full size DisplayPort connections for regular computer monitors. The built-in scaler will ensure the video input standard is scaled to the native resolution of the connected DisplayPort monitor. Or, use the built-in pixel-by-pixel mode to view unscaled HD or 4K content. Customers can also connect both 2SI and Square Division inputs.
Teranex Mini SDI to DisplayPort 8K HDR includes the same high quality 33 point 3D LUTs as used in the film industry. Two independent 3D LUTs can be loaded and customers can select between them from the front panel.
All Quad Link 12G-SDI inputs have outputs for looping to other equipment. Plus all HD, Ultra HD and 8K standards are supported allowing broadcast or film industry use. The front panel LCD provides confidence monitoring with both images and accurate audio level meters. There are menus for all functions and it’s easy to scroll through menu pages to find settings that need changing. The 3D LUTs can be enabled just by pressing the buttons labelled 1 or 2. The audio meters can be switched between VU or PPM ballistics. There are settings for configuring scopes and their on-screen location or opacity. Customers can even view and edit network settings.
Teranex Mini SDI to DisplayPort 8K HDR is available now from Blackmagic Design resellers worldwide for $1,295.
