Blackmagic Updates HDLink
Blackmagic Design is releasing its HDLink Utility 1.5 which provides new features for its HDLink DVI monitoring converter.
The utility uploads new firmware to USB-connected HDLink devices. Compatible with both Mac OS X and Windows XP, the new version offers anamorphic 16:9 aspect ratio for SD video, improved lift, gain and gamma controls, allowing for numerical entry. Increase/decrease buttons have been added for fine adjustment. Also, 10-bit gamma tables can be saved to a file for uploading to other HDLink devices.
HDLink connects post production SDI video to any supported DVI-D based LCD computer monitor for true HDTV resolution video monitoring and supports HD-SDI and dual link HD-SDI video formats. HDLink supports both 1080i and 720p.
The Melbourne Australia-based company also recently released its Decklink 4.7 software application for Mac OS.
