SDI output - PSF or pure 23.98 ?

Some of my monitors will display pure 23.98 and some require a PSF signal. Sony is ubiquitous in using PSF, what flavor is the BMCC SDI output?

Best for a BMD techie to confirm, but the specs for the camera specify progressive frame rates such as 23.98p or 24p that conforms to SMPTE 292M for HD-SDI. I don't think it's outputting PsF then so that might be a problem if your are plugging the SDI connection directly into a monitor that demands PsF inputs.
