Blackmagic DesktopVideo 10.1.1

A newly released driver for Decklink Studio on Mac OSX that gives the following improvements:

  1. Audio fixes on all inputs and outputs.
  2. 10-bit RGB support on HDMI in all HD modes.
  3. Fixes for Avid Media Composer Title Tool and timeline output.
  4. Fixes for output flicker and issue when replacing clips of different formats in ProTools 11.
  5. General performance and stability improvements.

Blackmagic DesktopVideo 10.1.1 Minimum system requirements:

  1. Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks or later.
  2. Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion or later.
  3. Thunderbolt Mac or Mac Pro model with suitable PCIe slot.
  4. 4 GB of system memory.

Acording to Frank Kruse and others on the DUC it gives great performance and gets rid of the black banding - giving video performance on par with Pro-Tools 10!
I will use this driver (if it works nicely for me) when I do my Pro-Tools 11 video tests

Please report any findings. I am very curious.
