I think monitoring is still exclusive to the BMD cards. There was talk last year about expanding that from Grant, but I don't think it went anywhere.

Resolve Lite is a free program.
Resolve Studio is incredibly discounted compared to similarly powerful professional grading programs.
Software updates to Resolve are free.

Blackmagic (BMD) subsidises the substantial development cost (I assume) through the sales of Blackmagic Hardware.

Additionally, one of the primary differentiating features between BMD and their competitors (such as AJA) is that BMD products work with Resolve, where others don't.

It doesn't make commercial sense for Blackmagic to develop Resolve to work with their competitors hardware - unless they made a "hardware unlocked" version, that cost dramatically more (say $5000.00).
