    Now this is what I've been waiting for. After the thunderbolt versions came out last year, I hoped they would have a solution for the rest of us.

    I really liked the idea of an affordable monitoring solution - I don't need capture. And to get SDI and HDMI previously meant spending $700 on the Decklink Studio. $145 is much easier to swallow, giving me a single HDMI and single SDI out.

    I was just about to pull the trigger on an Intensity Pro and give up on SDI. Glad I waited for NAB.

    Two or three of these in the kit.

    So many geeky goodies from BMD this year.

    I'm sort of confused by one of the specs, though. It says it needs a PCIe 4x slot to work, but the picture clearly shows a 1x card. I should be able to manage if it is 4x, but I don't understand how it could need more lanes than the Decklink Studio, Optical Fiber, or SDI. And again, the picture is clearly a 1x card. Hoping it's just a typo.

    It looks like single lane.

    One for each tower on a larger shoot would be great.

    Amid all the other stuff I was excited for this and their Smart Scope Duo A pretty affordable way to have a real scope solution for a grading suite.

    It says it's 3G-SDI. I thought the whole point of 3G-SDI was for 4:4:4 output?

    You can get a cheap HDMI->DVI adapter or even a cable that is likely to work on your DVI monitor.
