MacMini (late 2012) to UltraStudio Mini Monitor

PostTue Oct 16, 2018 5:43 pm

Specs:
- 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

Goal:
- To run dual monitor for ProPresenter output

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

Details:
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.

Question:
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.
