I'm looking to get this to use an SDI monitor for color grading from my 2018 Macbook Pro. Do you guys recommend it? Should I look somewhere else?
Asked by: Amilcar
This will work for grading. Make sure your computer actually has a Thunderbolt 3 connection as the Ultrastudio Mini requires TB3 for power. It will not work on a TB2 connection.

It does not. Instead you would need to look at the UltraStudio 4K Extreme, which does support Dual Channel 3D Over SDI.https://bhpho.to/2lLKhDv
