Existing field monitors with BMPC?

PostThu Aug 01, 2013 2:48 am

Sorry for the newbie question, but I'm having trouble following the whole 6G SDI thing. Will I be able to use my Marshall HD SDI or 3G SDI field monitors with the 4K production camera?

Thanks very much!

Yes, according to posts here by BMD representatives, and the current user manual from BMD's support site, the BMPC-4K is designed to work with conventional 1080 HD-SDI devices and also 4K capable 6G-SDI devices.

Of course, there's always a chance a particular HD-SDI device might not be compatible with the BMPC-4K. We'll have to wait for the cams to ship before we know for sure.

Fantastic! Thanks for the speedy response, Peter! Hopefully, things won't change between now and the camera's eventual release.
