Blackmagic Design BDLKMINIMON overview

  • 1Description

The Blackmagic Design DeckLink Mini Monitor is a 1-lane PCIe slot playback card with SDI and HDMI outputs, compatible with 1-, 4-, 8-, and 16-lane PCIe slots. In contrast to a full capture and playback input/output card, the DeckLink Mini Monitor provides you with just the playback and monitoring functionality for performing color-correction and delivering client presentations on high-resolution HDMI or SDI monitors. The card supports up to 1080p30 formats and it outputs up to 10-bit uncompressed video.

You can output via both the SDI and HDMI connections simultaneously or just one of them. The outputs are active and begin functioning right away when you plug into them. The card also automatically switches between SD and HD formats, so it'll handle all common video formats. Two PCIe shields are included for both full-height and low-profile PCIe slots.

Note: For use on a Mac, a Mac Pro is required with PCI Express slots.

    Blackmagic Design BDLKMINIMON reviews

    DeckLink Mini Monitor is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 31.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It does what the box says I am a video producer and I installed this card into my hackintosh and even that system, it works great! I am able to monitor Premiere Pro and After Effects on my 52 LCD monitor over HDMI. Set up was easy.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well with ProTools Very handy for putting the video you're working with up on a HDMI television monitor or out through an HDMI splitter to several monitors. It is not as versatile as a graphics card which allows your video monitor to be treated as a fully functional computer monitor, but it is lower in cost. If all you need is to view video output from apps such as a DAW like Cubase or ProTools or NLE's like Adobe Premier, the DeckLink Mini Monitor is a nice solution.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Compatible with some Dell Computers Purchased card for a Dell Precision T5600 Workstation which I use for video editing. Card would not function at all. Contacted Blackmagic Design tech support. Short hold time and very helpful. They said they have experienced problems with the card on Dell computers. Tested the card in a different Dell computer and got video out (both HDMI and SDI) but no audio. So the card appears to be functioning (at least partially). I'm wondering if it could be a driver issue/conflict. Since I need the card for the workstation, I'm going to try to return it.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from half baked ? When purchasing this card I already had experience with the mini monitor 4k and due 2 - with both I had a good experience. I chose this model since it uses PCIe x1 - giving more option for installation on loaded motherboards. Unfortunately, I found the card is not compatible with the software API as the other two cards - so it requires changes to the software (also another driver) - in addition, it had major RF issues - while the SDI output is fine, the HDMI output has snow on it. Since I was sure it is a hardware defect, I immediately ordered another one - just to find out that they are all the same .... (so now I have two useless cards) So, to conclude, it a nice idea of a product, nice price - it just need to work, and it doesn't.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Perfect I'm using the DeckLink Mini Monitor to playback video to an LCD TV - That's about it and it seems to do that very well. I wish it had separate analog audio outputs but I can work around this by using an HDMI audio extractor - Not a big deal. Easy install on Windows8.1 and tested with Edius7 for playback. Adobe Premiere 5.5 works well too. High quality and very affordable.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quick and Easy! Added this piece to my 2009 Mac Pro and it works great! The HDMI and SDI outputs work simultaneously so I can power 2 screens with the outputs. I thought I was having issues with it interfering with my bluetooth magic mouse at first, but that problem seems to have gone away. I've read about that in a small percentage of users though, so we'll see.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Huge Value using this card to run an HD TV via HDMI and a broadcast monitor via BNC, frees up memory on my video card. For $, this is the cheapest way to connect a large TV or monitor. No negatives. Does what it's supposed to for a great price.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does what it's designed to do It's a good tool for outputting video from premier, FCP, after effects or resolve. The only con is unlike matrox there is no screen calibration tool.
