My setup consist of a Blackmagic Decklink HD Extreme 3D+ (Driver version 8.0) connected via single SDI cable to Flanders Scientific LM-2461W monitor with beta firmware (0.9.40-1708)... which is not available publicly as of yet. These are the settings for BM card:
These are the settings for Davinci Resolve (make sure RGB 4:4:4 single link is selected):
These are the settings for the FSI LM-2461W monitor (beta firmware 0.9.40-1708 or higher):
After the firmware update:
- reboot the monitor (power cycle)
- go to Menu\System\Load Profile and load the default profile
- in Menu\System\3G Level B select "Overlay".
- in Menu\Video\SDI Format force the monitor into 4:4:4 RGB mode.
You will know everything is working once the monitor reports (3G) on the On Screen Display. If your monitor does not say (3G) you are not getting 3Gb/sec signal no matter if the colors look proper to your eye.
I've asked a few experts why the BM card does not support SMPTE 425M-A and the more plausible reason that was stated is that it was cheaper to build a card that muxes SMPTE 372M signal 'as is' into a SMPTE 425M-B format.
Fortunately it was reported by said experts that there is no loss in quality by muxing the two signals in an overlay. Of course I would love for BM to come out with a card that supports SMPTE 425M-A.
