    Output timeline to HDMI monitor

    UlfLaursen Community Member

      Hi

       

      I am using PPRO CS 5.5 on PC and looking to upgrade to CS 6 when it comes out.

       

      I would like to get an output to an HDMI monitor, and would probably need a card for that.

       

      I have seen several cards on the web, but kind of unsure, which to chose. I only need preview output; no input.

       

      Thanks.

          Every modern day video card can output to two monitors, AMD Eyefinity cards even up to 6 monitors and the nVidia GTX 680 up to 4 monitors.

           

          So if you only use a single monitor and want to add a second monitor, you probably only need the correct cable. If you use dual monitors and want to add a third monitor, then your choices are limited to the 680 or an AMD, or two GTX 4xx or two GTX 5xx cards that use the same driver.

            Thanks a lot, Harm - as always, spot on :)

              Hi Harm

               

              I want to look more into this solution, because I might get into trouble using a black magic intensity pro with a newer asus motherboard (the line of recommended boards is very narrow).

               

              I have the GTX 570 installed in my PC and would install another GTX 4/5xx card too - so far so good :)

               

              How would I get the timeline output on one of the outputs of this extra card? Should I put in a setting in PPRO?

               

              Thanks
