Blackmagic MultiView 4 HD
Monitor up to four different SD and HD sources on the same display at the same time with MultiView 4 HD!
The new Blackmagic MultiView 4 HD model is a low cost multi viewer that lets you simultaneously monitor 4 different SDI video sources on a single display! Each view is a completely independent video monitor with overlays that you can turn on and off such as custom labels, audio meters and more. Full frame re-synchronisation on each input lets you monitor any combination of video signals, even if they are different frame rates. The multi rate 3G-SDI connections are compatible with all existing SD and HD equipment and formats up to 1080p60, including Level A and B devices. Plus, you get both 3G-SDI and HDMI outputs so you can use traditional SDI displays or even low cost big screen televisions!
Studio or Live Use! Multi source monitoring designed for broadcasters
Multi view monitoring is perfect for massive control rooms with lots of incoming feeds, for live multi camera production or for use on location and in tight spaces that don’t have room for multiple monitors. With Blackmagic MultiViews you don’t need to connect multiple monitors, dozens of cables or run extra power to see all of your video sources! Simply plug your cameras, decks, switchers and routers into the SDI connections to see everything with amazing clarity and detail on a single HD monitor!
Independent Monitoring – Mix any combination of SD, HD sources
Each view on a Blackmagic MultiView works as a completely independent video monitor. You get full frame re‑synchronisation on all SDI inputs, which means that they can be any video standard and frame rate, and each input is completely independent of the others. You can mix any combination of referenced or non-referenced NTSC, PAL, 720p, 1080i and 1080p all on the same display at the same time! It’s like getting 4 independent monitors in one!
High Resolution Monitoring – The world’s highest resolution multi viewer!
All Blackmagic MultiView models work with HD displays, while the 6G-SDI models also work with Ultra HD displays, so you get maximum compatibility with your existing equipment. That means you can use regular HD displays but you also have the choice to use an Ultra HD monitor for incredible sharpness! Ultra HD has four times the number of pixels of regular HD, so your video will look sharper and clearer than ever before! What this means is when displaying the 2×2 view on an Ultra HD monitor, each view is a full 1920 x 1080 HD resolution with no scaling! MultiView includes both SDI and HDMI outputs so you can connect to televisions, video projectors, broadcast monitors and more!
Advanced Monitoring Tools – Custom labels, tally, audio meters and more!
Blackmagic MultiViews feature advanced monitoring tools that can be displayed with your video. You get custom labels, audio meters, tally indicators and more! You can also choose which audio source is routed to the video output. The on screen source labels have a subtle, elegant design and resize proportionally based on the selected layout. In addition, you get anamorphic support in standard definition so you can view 16 x 9 anamorphic video sources in widescreen.
Multi Rate SDI Connections – Supports all of your SD, HD and Ultra HD equipment!
Blackmagic MultiView models feature multi rate SDI inputs with full frame re-synchronisation and some models also have separate loop through outputs, making them compatible with your existing equipment. The SDI inputs automatically detect and re-sync SD and HD formats, plus some models also re-sync Ultra HD formats up to 2160p30. You get HDMI and SDI output, and MultiView 16 also includes a reference input connection and black-burst / tri-level sync for studio installations.
Flexible Design! Three great designs to fit any installation!
The tough metal mini converter style design of MultiView 4 HD makes it perfect for use on the road or in tough broadcast environments. Simply plug in your sources and start monitoring! The MultiView 4 works with HD or Ultra HD and features a Teranex Mini style design which means you can use it rack mounted or on a desktop. You can add an optional front panel or use Ethernet for more control options. MultiView 16 is designed for larger setups in which you need to view more sources on the same screen. You get router style front panel controls, a spin knob and LCD screen that make it fast to adjust settings, add overlays, and quickly route any source to any view on the grid!
