MacMini (late 2012) to UltraStudio Mini Monitor

PostTue Oct 16, 2018 5:43 pm

- MacMini (Late 2012) with High Sierra 10.13.1
- UltraStudio Mini Monitor with Thunderbolt input to SDI Out & HDMI Out
- BlackMagic Desktop Video Setup 10.11.2
- ProPresenter v6.3.5

- To run dual monitor for ProPresenter output

- Do not see 2nd monitor option in System Preferences>Setup>Displays

I have connected the USMM with two different Thunderbolt cables. The BMDVS does see the USMM and I can set the options for output. But the MiniMac will not recognize the 2nd monitor as an option. I have both the SDI and HDMI connected to the USMM and the screens are showing black and as if a signal is being received. But mouse will not move over to 2nd monitor and as already stated, do not see second monitor as an option.

Is this an issue with the MiniMac being a late 2012 model? Or is there something else I should attempt?

It doesn't show up as a second system monitor. You need to use the ProPresenter SDI Module to send the video directly out the device.
