Simple SDI/HDMI Output

by -

Simple good-value way of getting dedicated full-frame SDI/HDMI output from a PC or Mac (must have Thunderbolt3 port on it). It's not an extra computer display, which is a big advantage, as you won't get unwanted menus and taskbars, etc, popping up over your pictures whenever the OS decides by itself to do so.

There's also audio embedded on the SDI and HDMI video outputs. It does require compatible software that recognizes it. Fortunately, most editing packages "know" about it. OBS freeware works well with it, allowing other apps to be displayed on it via OBS. Also, make sure you install the latest version of BMD Desktop Video first. Then update the software in the Monitor 3G box to this same latest version. Otherwise your computer or the apps may not recognize it being there.
