Gjorde misstaget att köpa en 16:10-skärm som visserligen har hdmi-ingång, men som inte kan visa 1080i eller 720p via Blackmagic Intensity Pro. SKärmen visade sig bara klara 4:3 wide, kanske beroende på att skärmens pixelmått är 1680x1050.
Min undran: kan en skärm som har de rätta hd-måtten – 1920x1080 – spela upp full hd från macen via blackmagick-kortets hdmi ut? Eller måste man ha en riktig videomonitor för 30 papp?
Svarar själv eftersom ingen annan vill. Skickade frågan till CreativeCow också och fick detta svar från Shane Ross:
1920x1200 is the dimensions of 24" COMPUTER monitors. HDTVs will be 1920x1080...or 1280x720.
Så enkelt var det med den saken.
Blackmagic var själva lite svävande om min fråga. Läs om detta i nästa inlägg.
Nu har jag köpt en Eizo med måtten 1920x1080, så nu fungerar det som det ska.
Subject: Can't get picture onto dvi screen via hdmi output
Product: Intensity Pro
Driver Version: latest
OS: Mac OS X Version: 10.6.3
When I try to play out from fcp 7 I can't get the picture to play
on my hdtv-screen which I connected to Intensity Pro hdmi output port
and to the tv-screen via a dvi connector/cable.
In the system settings and in fcp you can decide what type of
connection to use and I have tried many but with no luck.
What am I doing wrong here?
Kindly, Björn O
The Intensity Pro HDMI connection outputs YUV, this will not be recognised by your DVI input as this only accepts RGB. You will need to connect the HDMI output to a suitable monitor
I bought a screen which has hdmi-port but which wasn't full HD. The picture plays badly on it. Is it correct to assume then that a screen must be 1920x1080 to be able to play full hd in – well... full hd?
I also can't get the right proportion of the picture, it gets squeezed a bit, people look very slim.
The monitor doesn’t have to be 1920x1080 to display the picture, but the monitor itself will end up performing some kind of conversion to display the picture on other resolutions. To display 1080i or p pixel for pixel you would want a 1920x1080 screen. However smaller resolution monitors are generally OK. What kinds of problem are you seeing?

I’m afraid I can’t be sure what the problem could be with the squeezing. This is very odd. Unlike PAL and NTSC, the pixel aspect ratio of both 720 and 1080 formats is square, meaning the monitor should never have to rescale.
This could be a problem in standard definition formats because the pixel aspect ratio was not square, and of course it could also be anamorphic meaning the picture could be stretched to form a 16:9 picture from the same signal.
Certainly with HD formats our monitors here do not allow the picture mode to be changed. Does the picture look normal on the computer monitor?
