Multi view monitoring is perfect for massive control rooms with lots of incoming feeds, for live multi camera production or for use on location and in tight spaces that don’t have room for multiple monitors. With Blackmagic MultiViews you don’t need to connect multiple monitors, dozens of cables or run extra power to see all of your video sources! Simply plug your cameras, decks, switchers and routers into the SDI connections to see everything with amazing clarity and detail on a single HD or Ultra HD monitor!
Each view on a Blackmagic MultiView works as a completely independent video monitor. You get full frame re-synchronization on all of the 6G-SDI inputs. That means they can be any video standard and frame rate, and each input is completely independent of the others. You can mix any combination of referenced or non-referenced NTSC, PAL, 720p, 1080i, 1080p, and Ultra HD up to 2160p30, all on the same display at the same time! It's like getting 4 or 16 independent monitors in one!
Blackmagic MultiView works with both HD as well as Ultra HD displays, so you get maximum compatibility with your existing HD equipment. That means you can use regular HD displays but you also have the choice to use an Ultra HD monitor for incredible sharpness! Ultra HD has four times the number of pixels of regular HD, so your video will look sharper and clearer than ever before! What this means is when displaying the 2x2 view on an Ultra HD monitor, each view is a full 1920 x 1080 HD resolution with no scaling! MultiView includes both 6G-SDI and HDMI outputs so you can connect to televisions, video projectors, broadcast monitors and more!
Blackmagic MultiViews feature advanced monitoring tools that can be displayed with your video. You get custom labels, audio meters, tally indicators and more! You can also choose which audio source is routed to the video output. The on screen source labels have a subtle, elegant design and resize proportionally based on the selected layout. In addition, you get anamorphic support in standard definition so you can view 16 x 9 anamorphic video sources in widescreen.
All Blackmagic MultiView models feature multi rate 6G-SDI inputs with full frame re-synchronization and separate loop through outputs, making it compatible with your existing equipment.
