it is a way to work with so many kind of monitors.
it is fantastic.only $369 on ebay,any reviews of this converter?
The real question is how come samsung hasn't released a 11" 1440p tablet with HDMI in??? These devices would sell really well once tablet makers kill the field monitor industry.
I need 1080 in my situation and would like a way to have multiple monitors for much less than my Panasonic ones (with waveform and VU features)
I pre-ordered one of these to play with in any case.
Many monitors from several companies output in less than HD and the more professional ones such as TV Logic, Alphatron, etc. do just that (720p)
720p is good, especially when only shooting 1080p, Now if you are shooting 4k and above then I would suggest a professional monitor that can display close to that resolution.
For $400 I think it's pretty good. Using it's 1/4" mounting thread it could attach to the back of a decent sized client monitor. Only 720P out though...
I agree that mounting and size will be an important factor for this. But really all it will mean is does this device live in the studio? or does it come with me on location. If it is small enough i would love to have this on location with me. I often bring a 27" LCD monitor with me that has HDMI in but no scopes, no overlays at all. This could be a great addition to that package.
Yeah, give us 2.39:1 frame overlay so we can frame widescreen.
Aputure should add aspect ratio overlays for different crops. Also, the product's case should have mounting points...
Can't really tell the dimensions of the device, but if Aputure could make it small enough to easily fit behind a 7" monitor and give the option for a black finish, I'd really really be sold.
Really cool if the overlays are accurate!
