I was worried the bad weather would delay the driver but it made it here safe and sound.

I will not be able to comment on performance until later tonight but I did hook everything up and confirmed she is working. More to come!

Beaten to the punch.



Looks like a Ducati sidecar. Look forward to your comments.

Interesting. And that confirms it is not the C3X case. Similar, but not the same...

Yes new design, sharp looking machine. Going by memory its quieter then the 1080 C3X and quieter then the Marantz 11S2 sitting next to it.

The Host has an HD-SDI

That is the gateway to some seriously interesting stuff.



Loved that on my HT5k

The uncompressed kind.


The interface is used in the broadcast industry and handles uncompressed broadcast grade video. What you see on HDTV, which can be outstanding, isn't even close to the uncompressed files.


The standard can handle around 30 times the data rate of BD, and upto 60 in dual-link mode.

. Can't wait to hear your impressions. Have fun!

Intriguing. Looks like Sim may be thinking nextgen with HD-SDI when Bluray has gone the way of the Betamax and everyone is downloading UNCOMPRESSED day and date flicks to their nice little movieservers. Hmmmmm.....

Very perceptive.


The HT5k had it 2 years ago. The difference is staggering.


In my last place I was fortunate enough to be asked, and able, to host a number of screenings that made use of this interface. Incredible.

Hard to tell from the photo, but does it have 2 SDI BNC's? Need those for real HD SDI bandwidth. Yes, I LOVE my SDI'd SD-DVD player. Wouldn't consider using anything else for SD-DVD.

It has 1 HD-SDI BNC. You do need 2 for dual-link, but 1 connector can still deliver nearly 30 times the data rate of Blu-Ray.


Seeing uncompressed, pre broadcast, 1080 material was a revelation to me. This needs to be the next stage for sources.

Or a single 3 gigabit HD-SDI port. 4.5 Gig chips seem to not have made it to market, yet. As Belden pointed out its 3 gig certified coax was later also certified for 4.5 gig.


1080P does require either dual channel or 3 gig., 4.5 gig at higher sample and framerates.

Of course you are correct. Im not sure if these newer units have 3Gb ports.

I don't believe 1080P24 requires dual channel

Why all the hype over HDSDI? Many (not all) HDMI implementations are exactly the same. Meaning you can send the same uncompressed signal over HDMI. Go look in the Processors fourm for indepth discussion on this.


The cool trick is getting access to uncompressed HD. Even a DCI master is still compressed. Plus even broadcast grade HD VTRs are still compressed, the highest bit rate available being 880mbs.

Correct, it's actually less bandwidth then 1080i/60 but is padded out the same to keep the interface standardized.


There is no 4.5gbs SDI standard. 3G is covered under SMPTE 424 and 425.

Glimmie, I dont see any hype at all. Just passage of some basic information.


I think most people know that you can do the same with HDMI, its just a good option to have if you can use it. If you have access to the content, and connectivity, its a sweet deal.

I thought 1080p required 3G or dual channel.


If its not 3Gb, then its limited to 1080i as per SMPTE 292.


Of course its VERY possible Im missing something here. If I am, please straighten me out.

CM, it is all about bandwidth, 1080P24 requires less than 1080i60..


No reason to run Bluray at anything other than 1080P24 for 1080P24 encoded movies, and 1080i60 for video and 1080i60 encoded discs, and then let external processor or internal projector processor(if quality processor) convert to 1080p60. Actually the best way would be to run Native from disc
