    HDLink Pro allows any supported DVI or HDMI display to be used for incredible HD-SDI monitoring. HDLink Pro supports the new 3 Gb/s SDI standard for twice the SDI data rate than normal HD-SDI. 3 Gb/s SDI retains compatibility with normal HD-SDI and standard definition SDI equipment, however the higher 3 Gb/s data rate allows 4:4:4 video using a single BNC type connection, or BlackMagic Design's new 2k via SDI allows high resolution real time 2048 x 1556 feature film editing. HDLink Pro is perfect for high definition or 2K film monitoring, and switches between SD, HD and 2K instantly. HDLink also features a revolutionary new chassis with all connections from one side, so mounting on the back of displays allows cables exit from the bottom for better cable management.

    HDLink supports all DVI-D based digital computer displays and now also includes HDMI video support. HDMI supports video at 1080i/50, 1080i/59.94 and 720p/59.94 on any HDMI device. DVI-D supports displays at 1920 x 1200 (16:10) resolution for all 1080 HDTV formats. When working in 720 HDTV formats you can even use lower cost 1280 x 800 resolution display for pixel for pixel 720p viewing. When working in NTSC or PAL, HDLink can 2x oversize the displayed image making viewing easier. Because most computer displays are limited to approximately a 60 Hz refresh rate, HDLink will automatically apply pull-down to allow video frame rates to be displayed. HDLink includes a built-in Power PC processor allowing automatic adjustment of native display resolutions using VESA E-EDID1.3.

    For matching LCD display colourimetry and simulating various types of film stocks, HDLink Pro model features more advanced 3D lookup tables. Advanced 3D lookup tables increase colour control because a blend of red, green and blue video can be output to each primary colour on the connected display. Only advanced 3D lookup tables can give full colour control for accurate simulation of almost any feature film stock. Lookup tables are fully adjustable via a high speed USB 2.0 host computer connection using the included HDLink Utility software for Windows and Mac OS X. Custom lookup tables also allow film industry log video to be converted to linear for monitoring when used for feature film work. Preset gamma tables for Panasonic and Grass Valley Thomson Viper cine-gamma are included.
