Blackmagic Design Releases New Version of HDLink Software

February 24, 2006
Austrailian-based Blackmagic Design has released Universal Version 2.1 for the HDLink HD/SD-SDI to DVI monitoring converter. This latest software release for HDLink is designed to run seamlessly and on both Intel- and PowerPC-based Macs.

The HDLink connects post production quality SDI video directly to any supported DVI-D based LCD computer monitor for HDTV resolution video monitoring. HDLink also automatically detects DVI-D or HDMI display types and includes new improvements to 24 PsF mode and HD 720p/50 support for DVI-D and HDMI.

"Developing Universal support for the HDLink was incredibly easy, and we are passing along this newly-added Universal support in a way that couldn't be simpler for our customers," said Grant Petty, CEO of Blackmagic Design.

Petty said the HDLink software 2.1 works on the latest Intel-based Macs using the same installer as the one used for the current PowerPC Macs, and the software update is available now.
