|Video Input|| |
HDMI 1* (video sources)
|Video Input Resolutions|| |
Compliant with SMPTE 259M/292M/424M (Level A) / 425M
|Video Output|| |
|Video Output Resolutions|| |
Preview output of video input signals. Preview output can be mapped from either SDI or HDMI input sources.
Note that when input is an SD-SDI resolution, the HDMI preview output will show video window-boxed on an HD output.
When HDMI output is set to Preview Mode, refer to the manual for a complete description of behavior.
|Audio Input|| |
Processes the first two channels of audio embedded in HDMI or SDI input signals.
Unbalanced analog stereo input via 1/8” (3.5mm) jack.
|Audio Output|| |
Passthrough of 8 channel of embedded audio channels in HDMI and SDI signals.

** Supports SD and SDHC cards. Only NTFS formatted SDXC cards are supported. (Class 10 highly recommended).
*** Support for writing to shared folders in computers found on a network using Windows Share protocols (suitable for Windows system) as well as NFS protocols (suitable for Mac and Linux systems).
|Recording Lengths|| |
Maximum file length of 300 minutes—irrespective of storage type used. File splitting feature allows a user to record continuously for long periods by defining file segment sizes. The Monarch appliance will create these sequential file segments over the course of the recording operation without losing a single frame of video. File segment can have a length of 1 to 300 minutes.
|Full Frame Rate|| |
Encode frame rates selection includes;
Note that 50/60 fps setting is limited to following use cases:
All other operating modes will limit the frame rate to the 30/25 fps setting regardless of encoding resolution.
