      Quality is good but

      By Josh

      from Philadel

      Comments about Blackmagic Design Multibridge Pro 2:

      That quality of the output is good but the box itself has a very loud fan, the Xlr jacks do not release properly and now my power supply has gone bad. It seems like most of the r and d was in the circuitry -not the build of the product

        If you've ever struggled with a Kona AJA3 card and it's limitations, get this card. If for no other reason than you can actually perform a real, frame-accurate, insert edit to tape with out glitches or latency.

        I use the Multibridge to output to different tape formats and this product is really great for that. I also use it to convert HD/SD as well as different QT formats as well. What is so great about it is that the software is so easy to use and is integrated right into Final Cut 6.

          Installation was very easy and I had no problems at all. After installing the latest software off their site (disks that ship with items are always out of date) everything worked as advertised. I've been using it in our online edit bay and haven't had a problem yet.

            This is a great out box if you want to get into both SD and HD. Also what's great about it is the rack mount. I'm using the SDI Out to my Panasonic Production 17in monitor. Plus what I love is the fact that I could also use the production monitor as a computer monitor as well! It works great with Final Cut Pro. It takes a little bit of time to set up but it's worth it.
