What's new in HDLink Utility 3.5.1

  • 12-bit RGB 4:4:4 HD-SDI input support on HDLink Pro 3D DisplayPort.
  • General stability and performance improvements.


Big Screen Cinema Style Monitoring
Clients love good quality monitoring and HDLink is ideal for client monitoring because of its HDMI support. HDLink's HDMI support allows you to digitally connect to a wide range of consumer televisions, large screen plasmas and video projectors for incredible quality monitoring. LCD televisions are brighter and larger than computer monitors, so your clients get a full cinema experience using HDLink. You can even use the custom lookup tables to calibrate for accurate color. HD video with an all digital connection to a large screen TV, looks incredible in 2D or 3D! Because HDMI video connections are limited to shorter lengths, HDLink is ideal when you need to connect to video projectors with digital quality. Run SDI connections up to your ceiling mounted video projector, and use HDLink to convert to HDMI locally.

Ideal Edit Suite
MonitoringNeed the ideal HD monitoring solution for edit suites, design workstations or broadcast graphics? HDLink is perfect because it's digital direct to the LCD screen for full resolution HD 2D/3D display, that's much better than a CRT! Unlike SDI input cards on CRT monitors, HDLink will let you change between standard definition and HD instantly. Now you change your edit suite over without delay, so your clients aren't kept waiting!

2K Feature Film Monitoring
HDLink supports the new 3 Gb/s SDI so you can connect to any device that supports 2K via SDI playback such as Blackmagic Design's Multibridge Eclipse. 2K via SDI brings the workflow advantages of SDI video to feature film production. Imagine being able to pipe around 2K film resolution video throughout your facility and using the same connections that normally handle SD and HD video. HDLink also includes 3D lookup tables so you can load your custom developed tables for matching film stocks. HDLink also allows 3D lookup tables to be output on the loop through SDI output, so you can use it as in line SDI processing. 6 channel audio outputs are included so monitoring in 5.1 surround sound is easy and low cost.

Video Assist on Location
A large 24' LCD panel makes the perfect viewing environment on-set. If you're doing the highest budget feature film, or a quick corporate video shoot your crew will love viewing on a large monitor. Because you get full resolution you can check framing as well as camera focus. If you're using Panasonic or Grass Valley Viper cameras, then HDLink includes lookup tables for viewing direct output from the camera with gamma encoding removed. HDLink's advanced 3D lookup tables allow simulation of film stocks so you can see what your images will look like when projected on the big screen!.

A Perfect Match for the Telecine Suite
Telecine suites are one of the most demanding monitoring environments, and have been the exclusive domain of large grade-1 CRT monitors. While most post production telecine colorists would argue that for critical monitoring only a CRT can give you a good indication of field movement. When combined with HDLink and a good LCD monitor, telecine monitoring is greatly enhanced because LCD monitors don't suffer from afterglow, noise, analog losses or interference. That means telecine chain alignment is much more accurate. Because HDLink displays full resolution HD video, telecine colorists can set focus to unprecedented accuracy, and with the Blue Only feature, film grain and telecine noise can be easily seen. Because HDLink is fully digital from SDI onto the DVI LCD screen, no noise can be introduced onto the LCD display environment, making a perfect noise free monitoring solution.

Includes 3D Lookup Tables
For matching LCD display colorimetry and simulating various types of film stocks, HDLink Pro model features more advanced 3D lookup tables. Advanced 3D lookup tables increase color control because a blend of red, green and blue video can be output to each primary color on the connected display. Only advanced 3D lookup tables can give full color 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.

Analog Audio Monitoring Output
Audio outputs are de embedded from the SDI input and then converted to analog at an incredible 24 bit. HDLink supports 6 channels out allowing easy monitoring of 5.1 surround sound audio. Audio is output on RCA connectors so you can easily connect to standard HiFi systems. If the connected display requires pull-down processing then HDLink will apply a variable audio delay ensuring perfect audio to video sync. To protect speakers and eliminate loud pops and other audio glitches, HDLink gently mutes the audio if video formats change or when SDI signals are connected and disconnected.


Cross Platform Configuration
If you're a broadcast engineer running Windows or a creative designer and editor running Mac OS X, you can still run your favorite computing platform. HDLink Utility runs on both Windows and Mac OS X connecting via USB 2.0, so you don't have the complexity of little switches for setup. HDLink Utility automatically finds your USB connected HDLink, and features a standard application interface with settings via simple pop-up menus.

Upload Lookup Tables
HDLink Utility allows you to upload gamma lookup tables, which can then be loaded into HDLink via USB. Settings and look up tables stay saved in non volatile memory, so every time you power cycle your HDLink the settings stay the same. Factory defaults can easily be restored and gamma tables copied and saved as files. Although HDLink comes color calibrated, lift, gain and gamma adjustments are provided to allow color matching of LCD panels. Lookup tables for Panasonic cine-gamma are also provided which are perfect for on-location film shoots.

Special Settings Make Life Easier
Just because you're using a low cost LCD computer monitor doesn't exclude you from some of the great CRT features you've had in the past. HDLink Utility now features an exciting Blue Only settings that lets you check chroma phase and see noise in the blue channel. Simply select on and off as you need it. For users that need a 'CRT look', HDLink Utility now includes a customizable field emulator. Because LCD monitors use progressive display, a field emulator processes video to emulate the effect of field based scanning on CRT monitors. That helps display field movement that can normally only be seen on CRT monitors.

One Minute Firmware Updates
HDLink Utility lets you update firmware in a snap. Whenever you download new software releases from the Blackmagic Design website, HDLink automatically checks your firmware and asks if you would like to update to the newer version. Blackmagic Design's engineering team are constantly working on new updates and features, so you won't want to miss the latest updates. Exciting updates such as HDMI support have allowed older HDLink's to gain exciting new features, all at no cost!
