Yesterday I had to install a new 8K Pro and I’ve been getting some weird behaviours. I was using server 2.3.3.
Have anyone tested it extensively?
On paper the card is able to output 4 separate streams, and four 4K channels should not be an issue for this card.
So I configured the card to have SDI independent connectors. (It says “SDI 1 in or out”, etc.)
Then I set caspar to 2160p25 and I got all four outputs working. All good so far.
But when I set caspar to 2160p50 it isn’t able to output video in that channel, not even to a screen consumer. Is like the channel is “broken” when I add a decklink with the card configured as four independent channels/devices at that resolution. If I remove the decklink consuner channel works fine.
The only way I managed to get it working at 2160p50 was when I set the card to be only two devices (“SDI 1 in, SDI 2 out” and the same with 3/4). So with this config I think I have two fills and two keys at 2160p50.
But it seems odd to me that the card is behaving like this if I want four video streams at more than 4k25p…
I was expecting the card to behave like a Duo2 up to 4K60p at least.
Unfortunately I won’t be able to share any logs/config files until I’m back at the office in a couple of weeks.
