HDLink Pro DVI-Digital
HDLink Pro includes amazing quality DVI and HDMI monitoring with 6 channels of RCA analog
audio out, 3D lookup tables, Dual Link 3 Gb/s SDI input, single link 3 Gb/s SDI loop thru output, and
support for 24 inch displays for HD monitoring and 30 inch displays for real time 2K monitoring.
Full Resolution HD Monitoring
HDLink and HDLink Pro connect SDI video directly to any supported DVI-D based LCD computer
monitor for incredible true HDTV resolution video monitoring. The new HDLink Pro model
introduces 3 Gb/s SDI for high resolution 2K film monitoring when connected to a large 30 inch DVI
display. With every individual pixel in the HD or 2K SDI connection digitally mapped directly to the
pixels of the LCD display, you get a perfect digital-to-screen pixel for pixel HDTV or 2K display.
Connect any HDMI television or video projector to HDLink for cinema style monitoring! Even large
23 inch CRT based monitors can't display the full resolution of the HD-SDI signal, but with HDLink
you see every pixel in the HD signal, so you'll always see a perfect image. You'll be amazed at the
quality of High Definition or 2K video when you monitor via HDLink for the first time. There's simply
no higher resolution HDTV monitoring possible!
Supports both DVI and HDMI
HDLink supports all DVI-D based digital computer displays and now also includes HDMI video
support. HDMI supports video at 1080i/50, 1080i/59.94 and 720p/59.94 on any HDMI device. DVI-D
supports displays at 1920 x 1200 (16:10) resolution for all 1080 HDTV formats. When working in
720 HDTV formats you can even use lower cost 1280 x 800 resolution display for pixel for pixel
720p viewing. When working in NTSC or PAL, HDLink can 2x oversize the displayed image making
viewing easier. Because most computer displays are limited to approximately a 60 Hz refresh rate,
HDLink will automatically apply pull-down to allow video frame rates to be displayed. HDLink
includes a built-in Power PC processor allowing automatic adjustment of native display resolutions
using VESA E-EDID1.3.
World's Highest Quality 3 Gb/s SDI in 4:4:4
HDLink introduced the world's first full HDTV resolution 4:4:4 monitoring solution that supports both
standard definition SDI, HD-SDI and Dual Link HD-SDI 4:4:4 for full resolution color monitoring.
Dual Link HD-SDI 4:4:4 uses two HD-SDI video cables for twice the color resolution. Conventional
SD and HD video is 4:2:2 based, which limits color detail while 4:4:4 HD video preserves the full
color detail which is important for critical keying and feature film work.
HDLink Pro is the first solution for the new high speed 3 Gb/s SDI standard for 4:4:4 RGB and 2K
film monitoring. 3 Gb/s SDI runs twice the data rate of normal HD-SDI video, allowing 4:4:4 RGB
video to be connected using a single SDI connection. 3 Gb/s SDI also allows full resolution 2K
feature film quality 2048 x 1556 video to be connected via SDI.
Built in Optical Fiber
The HDLink Optical Fiber model is the worlds first broadcast monitoring solution with built in optical
fiber SDI connections. Optical fiber easily handles long distances, is low cost, and optical fiber
cables last virtually forever because you can keep plugging them into faster equipment in the future,
and the same cables will go much faster. Optical fiber cables can be installed by your local
electrician, and the cables can be purchased from your local electrical wholesaler. That's because
optical fiber is used all the time in computer networking, so it's low cost and commonly available!
Now you can build a native optical fiber facility!
Standard Definition, HDTV or 2K
HDLink and HDLink Pro support all SDI based formats from standard definition NTSC/PAL to HDSDI 1080 and 720 when used with DVI displays. HDLink Pro features 3 Gb/s SDI, so also works
with real time 2K monitoring as used on Blackmagic Design's new Multibridge Eclipse. With HDLink
you'll get the best image quality possible with format compatibility guaranteed years into the future.
HDLink's SDI video input automatically switches between SD, HD and 2K. Unlike CRT based
monitors, HDLink also supports all HDTV frame rates and formats including progressive HD
formats.
SMPTE 352M video payload identification ancillary data is used for automatic input format
recognition and RGB/YUV color space detection. Color precision is at an incredible 10 bit in both
SD and HD formats. Video data is automatically rounded down to the bit depth of the connected
LCD display for superior viewing quality.
Color Management via 3D Lookup Tables
For matching LCD display colorimetry and simulating various types of film stocks, HDLink includes
1D RGB lookup tables, while the HDLink Pro model features more advanced 3D lookup tables.
Advanced 3D lookup tables increase color control because a blend of red, green and blue video
can be output to each primary color on the connected display. Only advanced 3D lookup tables can
give full color control for accurate simulation of almost any feature film stock. Lookup tables are fully
adjustable via a high speed USB 2.0 host computer connection using the included HDLink Utility
software for Windows and Mac OS X. Custom lookup tables also allow film industry log video to be
converted to linear for monitoring when used for feature film work. Preset gamma tables for
Panasonic™ and Grass Valley Thomson Viper cine-gamma are included.
Supports LCD Displays
HDLink supports DVI-D based digital computer displays. For 1080 and 720 HDTV formats, a 1920 x
1200 (16:10) resolution display is recommended. However, if you're working in 720 HDTV formats
only, then a lower cost 1280 x 800 resolution display is recommended. When working in NTSC or
PAL, HDLink can 2x oversize the displayed image making viewing easier. Because most computer
displays are limited to approximately a 60 Hz refresh rate, HDLink will automatically apply pull-down
to allow video frame rates to be displayed. HDLink includes a built-in Power PC processor allowing
automatic adjustment of native display resolutions using VESA E-EDID1.3.
Analog Audio Monitoring Output
Audio outputs are de embedded from the SDI input and then converted to analog at an incredible
24 bit. HDLink supports 2 channels of audio out, while HDLink Pro supports 6 channels out allowing
easy monitoring of 5.1 surround sound audio. Audio is output on RCA connectors so you can easily
connect to standard HiFi systems. If the connected display requires pull-down processing then
HDLink will apply a variable audio delay ensuring perfect audio to video sync. To protect speakers
and eliminate loud pops and other audio glitches, HDLink gently mutes the audio if video formats
change or when SDI signals are connected and disconnected.
Two Fantastic Models
HDLink is available in two models to match your workflow needs. If you need Dual Link 4:4:4
monitoring, 1D lookup tables and 2 channel audio, then the original HDLink model is ideal. If you're
looking for more advanced features, such as 3D lookup tables, 6 channel audio and advanced 2K
feature film monitoring via 3 Gb/s SDI then HDLink Pro is perfect.
