In my quest to come up with the easiest workflow for HDR, without the hassle of purchasing a half-dozen LUTs; investing in expensive reference monitors; complex project, rendering and delivery settings; HDR to SDR conversions; complicated scripts; and i/o devices costing as much as a brand new a7R III, I’ve run up against just one obstacle: getting the Ninja Inferno to cooperate. I just heard back from Atomos this afternoon, and a solution may soon be at hand. Lewis Brown, Product Marketing Manager for Atomos, confirmed that while the UltraStudio Mini Monitor will not work via the HDMI port of the Ninja Inferno, it does operate properly when connected to the SDI of the Shogun Inferno. Additionally, the Blackmagic DeckLink Mini Monitor 4K in a TB chassis not only works via HDMI, but will also send HDR EOTF metadata infoframes – though this is not strictly necessary when using the Inferno. The downsides are the additional bulk (the Akitio Node TB 3 is large and heavy and the TB cable is ridiculously short) and expense – together with chassis, the connector can run over $400.00 – though this may be the most affordable solution for using the Ninja Inferno with Resolve. As far as Thunderbolt-out only devices go, the AJA T-TAP will work with both Final Cut Pro and Premiere, but not DaVinci Resolve. Apparently the root of the problem with the UltraStudio Mini Monitor is the HDMI handshake, and Mr. Brown is sending the EDID to their engineering department for examination.
