For a new generation: Teranex Mini SDI to DisplayPort 8K HDR

Teranex Mini SDI to DisplayPort 8K HDR is an advanced 8K monitoring solution for DisplayPort computer displays or high-quality monitors.

Unlike basic converters, it can use third-party calibration probes to accurately align connected displays for precise colour. Two on-screen scopes can be selected between WFM, Parade, Vector and Histogram.

The front panel includes controls and a colour display for input video, audio meters and the video standard indicator.

The rear panel has Quad Link 12G-SDI for HD, Ultra HD as well as 8K formats.

The solution features two DisplayPort connections for regular computer monitors or USB-C style DisplayPort monitors.

The built-in scaler will ensure the video input standard is scaled to the native resolution of the connected DisplayPort monitor.

Teranex Mini SDI to DisplayPort 8K HDR has everything for the latest HDR workflows. All that’s required is to connect a HDR-compatible DisplayPort monitor to allow HDR SDI monitoring.

Static metadata PQ and Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG) formats in the VPID are handled according to the ST2108-1, ST2084 and the ST425 standards. It handles ST425 which defines two new bits in the VPID to indicate transfer characteristic of SDR, HLG or PQ.

Two fully independent on-screen scopes are included so compliance with broadcast standards is easy when doing critical high-end work. Scopes are overlaid on screen so they can customise position, size and opacity. Customers can select from a range of scopes, including waveform for displaying luminance levels of their input signal.

The vectorscope display allows customers to see the intensity of colour at 100% SDI reference levels. Customers also get RGB and YUV parade displays, which are ideal for colour correction and checking for illegal levels. Histogram shows the distribution of white to black detail in their images and highlights or shadows clipping.

Blackmagic Design is exhibiting at IBC2019 on Stands 5.B23 and 7.B45.
