Blackmagic Design Mini Monitor 4K Overview

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.

Can you output 1080p on one port and 4K out the other simultaneously? I'm looking to connect SDI to a 1080p monitor and HDMI to a 4K monitor using Premiere Pro.
Asked by: Michael
No. It's the same signal on both ports.

question

Will this work with Avid MC8.5.3 and DnxHR timeline?
Asked by: John
Basically, we are seeing information that suggests it works. However, we cannot confirm since it depends on your computer and making sure you have the proper drivers. We suggest contacting Blackmagic Design for further information.

If I had 2 of these cards in my computer, would I be able to output 1080p from one card and 4K from the other while editing?
Asked by: Michael
The Blackmagic Design DeckLink Mini Monitor 4K can output at two different resolutions, so long as the software you are using to send the signals supports such a set up.

Hallo would you please tell me a little ...

Hallo would you please tell me a little informtion about decklink mini monitor 4k card ,i cant find full information, is it only just for monitoring or its also works as acceleration card for effects
Asked by: Gor
How much acceleration would you expect from a 10 watt card? It is only for monitoring. The key purpose that it provides is a full screen video output for monitoring to your grading monitor - so you need two monitors, one connected via HDMI or SDI to this card, and the other with your tools, files, timeline etc on the other monitor. It's the other graphics card that does any GPU acceleration that you may be doing. I see the key reason to use this card being if you want to monitor/grade HDR content, this seems to be the only way to do it, and why I use the card. Note however, while the HDR luminance is correctly sent using the EOTF-2084 protocol, the card and software fails to set the metadata to automatically set the color space of the content. So you need a monitor where you can via the OSD set the color space yourself. I use the Asus PG27UQ and PA32UCX both allow you to set the color space via the OSD, although doing so for the PG27UQ needs to be first set in SDR mode, but it carries over the setting to the HDR mode.

If I'm using this card to preview 4K from a ...

If I'm using this card to preview 4K from a timeline, am I better off using a consumer 4K UHD television or using a 4K computer monitor? Space is limited and 4K TVs tend to be big, whereas monitors can be smaller, and I'm on a tight budget.
Asked by: James
You didn't say, but are you doing HDR or SDR? Also what frame rate are you editing at, the Mini Monitor 4K won't drive 4K/60/10bit so if you're doing 10bit it will run at 4K/30 which is fine, and your project can still be 4K/60. What is your purpose/expectation of the preview, are you doing this for sharpness/focus in which case you really do need 4K, otherwise 1080P might be an option if you're only using it for color preview that might make it cheaper and would also enable 1080P/60/10bit. If you're doing it for color, then getting a display that accurately displays the color gamut is the most important aspect. For this you can either get a display that is factory calibrated to a tight tolerance or do the calibration yourself, something like Calman can be used, but unless you have this already it might be a problem for a tight budget. So if it's just color grading and you want 4K for SDR editing, a monitor that claims 99-100% of sRGB and a tight Delta-E (3 would be passable, 2 good, 1 great) then you're probably set. If you're editing in HDR this opens many other challenges up, including the sustained MaxLuminance and EOTF accuracy of the display. You can use TV's but the ones I've measured (from all the major brands) have "interesting" EOTF-2084 tracking of luminance and thus aren't particularly useful for color grading. It's not cheap, but the Asus PG27UQ is a great monitor with excellent EOTF-2084 tracking and a small Delta-E due to the factory calibration - that's what I use with the DeckLink Mini Monitor 4K for 4K/HDR grading.

Can I use this card to send output via SDI to a Blackmagic Web Presenter 4K using OBS Studio? If so, are there any resolution/frame rate limitations by virtue of the OBS interface less than the capacities of the monitor card or the Web Presenter? Owner/user Brett gave me a great answer about the hardware, but I hadn't specified OBS as my software source.
Asked by: Anonymous
Yes, The Blackmagic Design DeckLink Mini Monitor 4K would allow you to output from SDI to a Web Presenter that has HDMI input. Also this link will help you with Web Presenter setup with OBS. https://bit.ly/3Nzoz3J
