    BlackMagic Decklink has some cheaper options than Epiphan.

    there is a thread about this topic (mLogic mLink + BMD DeckLink Duo).

    I like that behaviour. Very smart.

    Blackmagic DeckLink Duo video card in a mLink Thunderbolt PCIe Mac expansion chassis by mLogicMore on my configuration after further testing:
    The SDI / HD-SDI output works well.The output of each of the two video cards on the DeckLink Duo appear in the Millumin Output Multiscreen Selector. They work just like any other display. Great for projectors with HD-SDI inputs. Less latency than I expected.
    More to come... My next test is to see how the inputs cascade. This will be important when reestablishing the patch at the show site.

    Sorry for the weird cut and past effect above.

    I decided to go with a branched approach because of the traffic math on the thunderbolt cables.


    Instead of the DeckLink Quad I went with 2 DeckLink Duos. Each one is in it’s own mLink Thunderbolt PCIe Mac expansion chassis by mLogic. Each chassis is plugged into it’s own thunderbolt port on the MacBook Pro Retina.
    This provides 4 inputs (SDI HD-SDI with loop through on full size BNC connectors).
    My objective was to have two windows of PowerPoint or Keynote (bilingual) floating on a pan screen (3 screen blend 1:3 ratio). 


    For each language of the PPT/KN I have a Mac hooked to a Blackmagic DVI Extender. This converts to HD-SDI, which then plugs into the DeckLink Duo.


    So far I have only tested the input capability of the DeckLink Duo. Works wonderfully! I tested at 1080i 60hz, which is the max for the DVI Extender. Very little lag.


    Thing of beauty!


    More to come…. Still testing the output side…


    Ps. When Philippe says it will work, it does.

    Has any Millumin user out there done this yet?

    Spoke to support at BlackMagic Design and they said it may work. There is a good chance that the DeckLink Quad will appear as 4 capture cards. If the DeckLink Quad only appears as one card they have a developers kit that facilitates activating the other 3 cards.
    I have two freinds that have a DeckLink Quad card so I could try it out by only investing in the expansion chassis. I will let you know how it goes.
    This could be very useful by adding 4 inputs in one shot.
