Do the SDI and HDMI outputs operate simultaneously? I want to bring HDMI out of a video codec and send it to a LCD monitor but also loop back in to a Tricaster for easier viewing when in the Tricaster application. HDMI IN > SDI OUT to Tricaster AND HDMI out to LCD basically.
Asked by: Adam
The HDMI and SDI outputs will both be active on the DAC-70. You will be able to convert HDMI to SDI and also use the HDMI output.

Does this allow for a usb out? It shows a usb port but doesn't mention it in the specs
Asked by: kevin f.
The USB port is for firmware upgrades and also you can supposedly use it to tweak some of the conversion parameters. ie: limit the HDMI output (which is slightly hot on my unit) and the proc amp control. Contact Datavideo tech support to have them send you the free utility program (and firmware upgrades) - or maybe they have it somewhere on their site.
