Blackmagic Design HDL-PRODISPORT overview

  • 1Description

Now supporting full 3D stereoscopic and HDMI 1.4, the HDLink Pro 3D DisplayPort from Blackmagic is the world's first SDI monitoring solution for deep bit-depth DisplayPort monitors. Providing the highest image quality in both 4:2:2 and 4:4:4, HDLink Pro is perfect for SD, HD and feature film 2K monitoring. It supports 1.62 and 2.7 Gb/s DisplayPort monitors with 1, 2 and 4 lanes, as well as DVI and HDMI monitors with an adapter (not included).

Please note: Power supply requires separately available IEC power cable.

Full Resolution HD Monitoring
HDLink connects SDI video directly to any supported DVI-D and DisplayPort based LCD computer monitor for incredible true HDTV resolution video monitoring. HDLink includes 3 Gb/s SDI for high resolution 2K film monitoring when connected to a large 30 inch DVI or DisplayPort display.
Supports both DVI and HDMI
HDLink supports all DVI-D and DisplayPort based digital computer displays and also includes HDMI video support. HDMI supports video at 1080i/50, 1080i/59.94 and 720p/59.94 on any HDMI device. DVI-D and DisplayPort supports displays at 1920 x 1200 (16:10) resolution for all 1080 HDTV formats. When working in 720 HDTV formats you can even use lower cost 1280 x 800 resolution display for pixel for pixel 720p viewing. When working in NTSC or PAL, HDLink can scale to fill the screen making viewing easier.
World's Highest Quality 3 Gb/s SDI in 4:4:4
HDLink introduced the world's first full HDTV resolution 4:4:4 monitoring solution that supports both standard definition SDI, HD-SDI and HD-SDI 4:4:4 for full resolution color monitoring. HD-SDI 4:4:4 features twice the color resolution. Conventional SD and HD video is 4:2:2 based, which limits color detail while 4:4:4 HD video preserves the full color detail which is important for critical keying and feature film work.
Affordable 3D SDI Monitoring
Now HDLink Pro supports 3D monitoring for the latest 3D production workflows! HDLink Pro 3D lets you display both dual stream as well as interleaved 3D inputs and then display them on any compatible 3D DVI display or HDMI television. When used with a DisplayPort to HDMI adapter, HDLink Pro 3D DisplayPort also supports HDMI 1.4 for compatibility with the latest full resolution 3D televisions!
Standard Definition, HDTV or 2K
HDLink supports all SDI based formats from standard definition NTSC/PAL to HD-SDI 1080 and 720 and even 2K film resolution when used with DVI displays. HDLink features 3 Gb/s SDI, so also works with real time 2K monitoring as used on Blackmagic Design's Multibridge Eclipse, Multibridge Pro and DeckLink HD Extreme. With HDLink you'll get the best image quality possible with format compatibility guaranteed years into the future. HDLink's SDI video input automatically switches between SD, HD and 2K. Unlike CRT based monitors, HDLink also supports all HDTV frame rates and formats including progressive HD formats.
Color Management via 3D Lookup Tables
For matching LCD display colorimetry and simulating various types of film stocks, HDLink Pro model features more advanced 3D lookup tables. Advanced 3D lookup tables increase color control because a blend of red, green and blue video can be output to each primary color on the connected display. Only advanced 3D lookup tables can give full color control for accurate simulation of almost any feature film stock.
Supports LCD Displays
HDLink supports DVI-D and DisplayPort based digital computer displays. For 1080 and 720 HDTV formats, a 1920 x 1200 (16:10) resolution display is recommended. However, if you're working in 720 HDTV formats only, then a lower cost 1280 x 800 resolution display is recommended. When working in NTSC or PAL, HDLink can scale up the displayed image to fill the display making viewing easier.
Analog Audio Monitoring Output
Audio outputs are de embedded from the SDI input and then converted to analog at an incredible 24 bit. HDLink supports 6 channels out allowing easy monitoring of 5.1 surround sound audio. Audio is output on RCA connectors so you can easily connect to standard HiFi systems. If the connected display requires pull-down processing then HDLink will apply a variable audio delay ensuring perfect audio to video sync. To protect speakers and eliminate loud pops and other audio glitches, HDLink gently mutes the audio if video formats change or when SDI signals are connected and disconnected.

    Blackmagic Design HDL-PRODISPORT reviews

    HDLink Pro 3D DisplayPort is rated 2.8 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Pretty much nothing works on these now.. Just an FYI to ANYONE buying this unit...the 3d portion doesn't work right now, nor do ANY display port or HDMI cables or adaptors available at any store. No one even makes displayport->HDMI 1.4 cables, so I have no idea how they say that it is compatible... The firmware update is available that allows for supposed 3d features, but the displayport does not work, rendering it essentially useless. There is very little information from the manufacturer on this, and help is very little if any. I would call to make sure you exact setup will work. We are currently stuck with a few of these and no solution on the horizon...

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Watchout for Red This product cannot take a signal from RED Cam directly. It must be run through a reclocking DA before the HDLink with RED 720p59.94. Otherwise it works fine.
    Date published: 2010-11-24
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value, more features pending Monitoring on a HDMI 1.4 3D HDTV unit works perfect in Side by Side, Top/Bottom and Line by Line modes. Though latest firmware states there is Frame Packing support I have not been able to achieve, nor have I read of anyone else doing it. Still a great value!
    Date published: 2010-11-27
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from does not work well Sometimes I get a picture on my 2nd monitor with the HDLink. Sometimes I do not. To switch between Final Cut Pro and Resolve. I have to shut down my computer, unplug/replug the HDlink... and then maybe... just maybe... I'll get a picture. It also gets very hot with stand or screws to elevate it or mount it to anything. It would be nice if I didn't need a capture card to use Resolve, it would also be nice if the Decklink capture card I did need and have had a display port out.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from SDI OUT DOESN'T WORK WITH LUT I bought this unit to run with livegrade... According to Blackmagic, the SDI-OUT will only maybe work when you have a displayport monitor hooked up. Thats pointless. I bought it to send SDI in and then back out... If the functionality doesn't completely work, state it, don't make me wait on hold for 35 min to find out.
