Blackmagic Multiview16

The Blackmagic Multiview 16 makes full use of the fact it is the world's first multi-viewer with Ultra HD as its native resolution. Having twice the sharpness and standard HD, it is easy to display up to 16 simultaneous views. You do not even have to be using UltraHD recording or capture equipment, just an Ultra HD or HD monitor. The viewer will accept up to 16 different SD, HD or UltraHD SDI sources and combine them into one easy-to-view display. There are options to display 4, 9, or 16 views and each input includes a full-frame re-synchroniser .

Equally at home in a control room or on set, this useful device and a single large monitor will take up far less space than a collection of smaller monitors and all their associated power cabling. The display output has the flexibility of 2x2 layout for 4 sources, 3x3 for 9 sources and 4x4 for 16 sources. The inputs can be different resolutions and different video standards.

Made from machined metal, the unit is extremely user-friendly with easy source selection using dedicated buttons and a spin knob to place images on any position on the grid. Instant full-screen “solo” viewing is possible at any time for any one of your sources.
