Choose from Three Great Models
Monitor up to 4 or 16 sources at once in Ultra HD or HD!
Introducing new MultiView 4 HD
Monitor up to four different SD and HD sources on the same display at the same time!
The new Blackmagic MultiView 4 HD model is a low cost multi viewer that lets you simultaneously monitor 4 different SDI video sources on a single display! Each view is a completely independent video monitor with overlays that you can turn on and off such as custom labels, audio meters and more. Full frame re-synchronization on each input lets you monitor any combination of video signals, even if they are different frame rates. The multi rate 3G-SDI connections are compatible with all existing SD and HD equipment and formats up to 1080p60, including Level A and B devices. Plus, you get both 3G-SDI and HDMI outputs so you can use traditional SDI displays or even low cost big screen televisions!
The easiest SD, HD andUltra HD multi view you'll ever use!
Blackmagic MultiView 4 has four independent 6G‑SDI inputs that work with all SD, HD and Ultra HD formats up to 2160p30. The included Ethernet remote control software lets you turn on audio meters, select audio to output, and create custom labels. MultiView 4 displays your sources in a standard 2x2 grid. You can also add a Teranex Mini Smart Panel for full front panel control and rack mount it using the optional Teranex Mini Rack Shelf!
Simultaneously view up to 16 independent SD, HD and Ultra HD sources!
MultiView 16 is perfect for larger installations because it has 16 independent 6G-SDI inputs so you can connect any combination of SD, HD or Ultra HD sources and monitor them all simultaneously on a single display! Router style controls on the front panel, along with the LCD and spin knob, let you adjust settings, route sources to different views, add overlays and more. Output can be set to a 2x2, 3x3 or 4x4 grid, and you can even SOLO any source full screen!
Studio or Live Use!
Multi source monitoring designed for broadcasters
Multi view monitoring is perfect for massive control rooms with lots of incoming feeds, for live multi camera production or for use on location and in tight spaces that don’t have room for multiple monitors. With Blackmagic MultiViews you don’t need to connect multiple monitors, dozens of cables or run extra power to see all of your video sources! Simply plug your cameras, decks, switchers and routers into the SDI connections to see everything with amazing clarity and detail on a single HD or Ultra HD monitor!
Mix any combination of SD, HD and Ultra HD sources
Each view on a Blackmagic MultiView works as a completely independent video monitor. You get full frame re‑synchronization on all SDI inputs, which means that they can be any video standard and frame rate, and each input is completely independent of the others. You can mix any combination of referenced or non-referenced NTSC, PAL, 720p, 1080i, 1080p, and Ultra HD up to 2160p30 on some models, all on the same display at the same time! It's like getting 4 or 16 independent monitors in one!
High Resolution Monitoring
The world’s highest resolution multi viewer!
All Blackmagic MultiView models work with HD displays, while the 6G-SDI models also work with Ultra HD displays, so you get maximum compatibility with your existing equipment. That means you can use regular HD displays but you also have the choice to use an Ultra HD monitor for incredible sharpness! Ultra HD has four times the number of pixels of regular HD, so your video will look sharper and clearer than ever before! What this means is when displaying the 2x2 view on an Ultra HD monitor, each view is a full 1920 x 1080 HD resolution with no scaling! MultiView includes both SDI and HDMI outputs so you can connect to televisions, video projectors, broadcast monitors and more!
Multi Rate SDI Connections
Supports all of your SD, HD and Ultra HD equipment!
Blackmagic MultiView models feature multi rate SDI inputs with full frame re-synchronization and some models also have separate loop through outputs, making them compatible with your existing equipment. The SDI inputs automatically detect and re-sync SD and HD formats, plus some models also re-sync Ultra HD formats up to 2160p30. You get HDMI and SDI output, and MultiView 16 also includes a reference input connection and blackburst/tri-level sync for studio installations.
Three great designs to fit any installation!
The tough metal mini converter style design of MultiView 4 HD makes it perfect for use on the road or in tough broadcast environments. Simply plug in your sources and start monitoring! The MultiView 4 works with HD or Ultra HD and features a Teranex Mini style design which means you can use it rack mounted or on a desktop. You can add an optional front panel or use Ethernet for more control options. MultiView 16 is designed for larger setups in which you need to view more sources on the same screen. You get router style front panel controls, a spin knob and LCD screen that make it fast to adjust settings, add overlays, and quickly route any source to any view on the grid!
Create customized views with even more sources!
Blackmagic MultiView 4 handles 4 sources in an incredibly compact size, however if you have more sources, you can combine multiple MultiViews together to create customized displays! Simply daisy chain two together by connecting the output of one MultiView 4 to one of the inputs on another. That means you can now monitor seven sources at once, all on the same display! There’s no limit to how many units you can combine together to create your own customized display!
Optional FrontPanel Controls
Works withTeranex Mini Smart Panels!
Blackmagic MultiView 4 works with the optional Teranex Mini Smart Panel so you can add front panel controls to your MultiView 4! Installation is as simple as swapping the front panel and, once installed, it’s even easier to set up and adjust settings on the fly! The Smart Panel features dedicated buttons, a built in LCD screen and a spin knob so you can turn on custom labels, audio meters, borders, tally and more! You can even adjust settings such as the IP address and output video format right from the front panel!
Teranex Mini Size
Use all theaccessories for Teranex Mini!
MultiView 4 is the same size as Blackmagic Design’s Teranex Mini range of 12G-SDI converters. This means you can use the Teranex Mini Rack Shelf for rack mounting the MultiView 4 and even combine multiple MultiView 4 models on the same rack shelf, or combine with a mix of Teranex Mini converters and MultiViews. The choice is yours! If you are in critical broadcast environments where you need to be able to change settings at any time then you can also add the Teranex Mini Smart Panel. This gives you full access to all MultiView 4 settings in easy to use graphical menus that are simpler and faster to use than the switches on the default panel.
External “Router” Control
Supports Videohub router protocol for easy external control!
MultiView 16 emulates a Blackmagic Videohub router so you get full compatibility with all of the external Videohub software and hardware control panels for routing any of the inputs onto any of the monitoring views! Both models can also be controlled via the included software utility on Mac or Windows computers so you can quickly change settings remotely if access to the front panel is restricted! You can even add on screen labels and other settings remotely!
