Blackmagic Design BDLKMINIMON4K overview

  • 1Description

With the DeckLink Mini Monitor 4K from Blackmagic Design you can play out 4K content to high-resolution monitors and recorders in real-time from your compatible edit system. A 6G-SDI (backward compatible with SD, HD, and 3G variants) and HDMI 2.0 terminals are on the output panel of the card, so you can connect to professional broadcast equipment and displays or consumer monitors and televisions, respectively.

Consumer and professional video codecs are supported, including H.264, Apple ProRes, AVC-Intra, and more, allowing full-resolution output of nearly any project. Wide software support including Blackmagic Design's own DaVinci Resolve and Fusion in addition to other popular platforms such as Apple's Final Cut Pro X, Avid's Media Composer, and Adobe's Premiere and After Effects CC, allows for the same hardware to be used with changing workflows over time.

The card itself requires an open PCI-Express slot conforming to at least PCI-E 2.0 x4 specifications. PCI-E x8 and x16 slots in 2.0 and 3.0 variants can also be used. A full-height bracket comes pre-installed, and a low-profile bracket is included for installation in a small form-factor PC or an external chassis.

    Blackmagic Design BDLKMINIMON4K reviews

    DeckLink Mini Monitor 4K is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 13.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from No problems, really helped with color correction. I wanted to get better at color correction so I needed a real monitoring solution for correct color evaluation and this product allowed me to do it. I have a MacPro 5.1, and I was able to interface this card via HDMI to a BENQ 4k 10 bit monitor. It is a bit involved getting everything set up. I had to make sure I had the most recent BMD Desktop video. Then I had to make sure I had my apps configured to output through the card. I use Davinci Resolve and PremiereProCC. Happy to say that both worked great and I am finally able to REALLY see what the colors are that I am working with. Without the monitor I was just guessing. My only reservation is that I wish the monitor could be switched into a mode that would allow it to connect with my mac display card for those apps that do not support output through this card. So unless I am doing color correction my display is dark. I guess I could put another connection into the monitor from my main card to do this and manually switch, so maybe I will do this. This thing works as I had hoped it would and the color is great.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from It works but has problems I can't speak for the other review about not accurately reproducing color on a 4k monitor, however, for me it seemed fine. The problems I had was a very noisy fan and it broke right after the warranty went out. That being said, blackmagic has a monopoly on the cheap 4k monitoring industry. I haven't found another card that does what this one does for under 1K so now here I am about to purchase my second one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 10-bit 4:4:4 UHD monitoring I have this installed in a 2010 Mac Pro (actually to a PCIe expansion chassis connected to the Mac Pro) running macOS 10.13.x. I connect a Dell UP2718Q and have the output card configured for 10-bit 4:4:4 UHD 23.976fps as a budget color monitoring solution. The BlackMagic Design Desktop Video application works well enough for configuring the card and the card output from both Final Cut Pro 10.4.x and DaVinci Resolve 14.3 work well. Occasionally the output card connection to my monitor will break and I'll have to restart the monitor or reconnect a cable, other than that it's been perfect.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from recommended Installed in an expansion chassis to complement my HDX protools set up. Easy install, works perfectly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works to output full screen video from Resolve Works as advertised to output full screen 10bit video from Davinci Resolve.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Major Issues This thing's color science is way off, and there doesn't appear to be any options for calibration with the included software. Blacks are crushed to hell, highlights are blown out, over-saturated image. I know this isn't the true representation of the images I took, as I can see clear detail across the entire range when viewed on my GUI monitor, as well as both camera and external field monitors. Besides color, any resizing of the timeline has issues with how letterboxes are displayed. On the edit page, both letterboxes (cropping) is all on the top of the screen, with display artifacts, rather than split between top and bottom evenly. However, on the color page this problem does not exist. I am considering returning for the standard mini-monitor and just coloring and previewing in 1080p.
