Blackmagic Design MultiView 16 is the world's first multi viewer that operates natively in Ultra HD, which allows you to use an Ultra HD monitor or television for twice the image sharpness, even if you are not even using Ultra HD in your facility yet! Now you can connect up to 16 different SD, HD and Ultra HD SDI sources into one display for monitoring! Blackmagic MultiView 16 allows 4, 9 or 16 views to be selected and each input includes a full frame re-synchronizer so you can have any combination of SD, HD and Ultra HD SDI sources connected, all at the same time!
Blackmagic MultiView 16 is the perfect solution when there are lots of video feeds to monitor and limited space. Customers no longer have to connect multiple monitors, dozens of cables or run extra power. Simply plug in cameras, decks, switchers, routers and feeds into the SDI connections on Blackmagic MultiView 16 and they can see everything with amazing clarity and detail on a single Ultra HD display.
With the availability of Ultra HD consumer televisions, now it's possible to use the extra resolution these displays have to build incredibly sharp multi view monitoring at low cost. Imagine having big screen televisions in your facility with high resolution monitoring of each view! That's twice the resolution of a normal multi view! Blackmagic MultiView 16 is incredibly flexible as it allows you to choose from 2x2 layout for 4 sources, 3x3 layout for 9 sources and 4x4 layout for 16 simultaneous sources, all from the front panel. Each of the inputs can be any combination of SD, HD and Ultra HD, all at the same time so it's just like having 16 independent broadcast monitors on the single display!
Multi view monitoring is ideal whether you're building a massive control room with lots of incoming feeds or are working on location in tight spaces that don't have room for multiple monitors. Blackmagic MultiView 16 can be used for live production, on set, in control rooms, post facilities and more! With Blackmagic MultiView 16 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, routers and feeds into the SDI connections and you can see everything with amazing clarity and detail on a single Ultra HD monitor!
MultiView 16 works with both regular HD as well as the latest Ultra HD displays, so you get maximum compatibility with your existing HD equipment but have the choice to use an Ultra HD monitor for incredible sharpness. That's four times the number of pixels in each view so your video will look sharper and clearer than ever before possible. Using an Ultra HD monitor means you get an incredible 1920 x 1080 full resolution HD in each view when running 2x2 for 4 views. Even if you're running 4x4 for 16 views, each view will still display an amazing 960 x 540 pixels! You get both 6G-SDI and HDMI outputs so you can connect direct to televisions, video projectors and broadcast monitors.
Featuring a compact, machined metal single rack unit design, MultiView 16 is incredibly easy to use because it has dedicated buttons on the front panel for quickly selecting any source into any of the views. Once selected, video can be routed to any position on the grid at the push of a button or you can simply use the spin knob control so it works just like a video router. Use the SOLO button for instant full screen monitoring of any source at any time! MultiView 16 also features a built in multi voltage AC power supply and professional broadcast 6G-SDI input connections with loop through so it integrates easily into any facility.
MultiView 16 includes sixteen multi rate 6G-SDI inputs with separate loop thru that are compatible with all of your existing SD, HD and Ultra HD equipment. It does not matter what video standard each input connection is running as each input view will act as an independent video monitor, so you can even have up to 16 different video standards connected all at the same time! All inputs feature automatic re-sync so you can even mix and match non referenced SD, HD, and Ultra HD sources! The reference input is included if you want to connect the Blackmagic MultiView 16 to other studio equipment.
The future proof design of Blackmagic MultiView 16 includes multi rate 6G-SDI inputs with low jitter and automatic frame re-synchronization of all inputs. Each loop output is reclocked so you can put the Blackmagic MultiView 16 inline with other SDI equipment such as on the inputs to live production switchers for camera source monitoring, or on the outputs of SDI video outputs to create monitoring overviews of all the live feeds in your facility! That's incredible flexibility and reduces your need to have reserved router outputs dedicated just to monitoring.
MultiView 16 includes Ethernet which emulates a Blackmagic Videohub router protocol 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. Blackmagic MultiView 16 can also be controlled via the included software utility on Mac or Windows computers so that 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!
Even though Blackmagic MultiView 16 is designed to be rack mounted, it's still small enough to be placed behind monitors and in tight locations, even inside walls! The secret is the remote Ethernet control allowing installation into locations where you cannot easily access the front panel. With a full control panel built in, Blackmagic MultiView 16 is ideal for mounting in consoles and desks so you can change settings, set views, route inputs and access the SOLO feature at the push of a button. Blackmagic MultiView 16 is not much larger than a simple control panel, but includes all the electronics built into its small size so it's easy to install when space is tight.
The built in power supply supports 90V to 240V AC so it can be used anywhere internationally and will just work when plugged in. Often broadcast trucks and fly away kits need to be moved between countries that operate under different voltages, and now it's easy to do that because Blackmagic MultiView 16 includes a premium multi voltage power supply that's able to handle a wide range of voltages.
