    Blackmagic Mini Monitor downscales 1080p50 to 720p50

    Hi All,

     

    Just discovered that in a 1080p50 MC project, the Blackmagic Mini Monitor device outputs 720p50 on the HDMI output. I found no way to force it to output 1080i50 instead.

    I understand it will not support 1080p50, but why does it downconvert to 720p50 instead of 1080i50 ???

    On the Blackmagic side, they seem to put the ball in Avid's camp:

    https://forum.blackmagicdesign.com/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=83166&p=461408#p461380

    To avoid misunderstanding:

    With a 1080i/50 timeline, I can output 1080i/50 with the BMD Mini Monitor, as expected

    With a 1080p/50 timeline, BMD Mini Monitor outputs 720p/50 (expected: 1080i/50 or 1080p/25)

    Can AVID confirm this limitation or bug ?
