Hi,
I want to use an external monitor with sdi input for playing playback in FCP X.3.2 through the HDMI output of a Macpro (late 2013).
What is the best way to do that ? Thank you for any help.
Philippe

One way would be to purchase a Black Magic Design mini converter HDMI to SDI. The small box (which requires power) can feed your SDI monitor with either embedded audio or separate AES/EBU or analog audio out (if you need audio).

We use the mini-converter but they also have cheaper micro converters and also more expensive solutions.

Since you are posting on at least two FCPX forums, please close all your threads when you arrive at a solution.
