I was working at a clients yesterday performing calibration, and spent more time looking at the HDlink Pro
Even in 'bypass mode' - no LUT active - the box distorts the image data being passed through it!
This was HDSDI in to HDSDI out, and the problem was easily visible in the shadows using the 'BrightnessCal' image available as part of the Calibration Images download from the Light Illusion website.
The box really is unusable in its present state!
I wanna make sure I'm reading this correctly:
Do you mean that all this time I've been grading images in Resolve, through the HDLink Pro (in unity/bypass mode, since I bought it only to convert the SDI out from my MacPro to HDMI for my Panasonic Plasma) and into a 709 "calibrated" display, my actual deliverables have not been accurate to what I've been seeing on screen?
I hate to be one of those "guys on the internet", but THIS IS AN OUTRAGE.
How can BMD in good conscious still be selling this box, if the "bypass" mode isnt actually bypassing it's internal color-processing system?
