Text Surrounds Image

PostSat Feb 03, 2018 6:16 pm

I have a Mini Ursa Pro and would really like to be able to use 'Text Surrounds Image' which seems to be only available on the Mini 4K & 4.6K. I do understand that to have a clear viewing area within the black border would require a smaller image in the viewfinder but it would be good to have an uncluttered viewfinder but retain the info while shooting.

Would find this helpful as well!

Any plans to implement this in a future update?

I agree x3. Really would be helpful on my Mini Pro. Also the ability to choose either or both SDI ports it can be applied to. Sometimes I like a clean feed for client and an info feed for operator & AC. Sometimes I like everyone to have all the info.
