Hi everyone - I’m new to VDMX and excited to get started. My gigs will always involve some camera image magnification and I’m curious if anyone has figured out how fast VDMX can be - and what hardware is required to eliminate any pesky delay?
Here’s one data-point: I see 108ms delay for the following gear and VDMX5:
Black Magic UltraStudio Mini with Marshall CV-150M SDI camera at 720p60 into a Black Magic UltraStudio Mini SDI Thunderbolt adapter. 2015 MacBook Pro AMD Radeon R9 M370X, Quad Core i7 2.8GHz.
HDMI connection to an Asus PA279 monitor.
About 20 of that 108ms is on the HDMI/monitor side.
It takes 62ms for the camera image to make it over SDI, through the Black Magic Thunderbolt adapter, into Black Syphon and then be displayed in the Simple Syphon Client window.
So a 108ms delay is pretty quick but noticeable by most people. Has anyone seen a faster response? I’ll be upgrading to a new MacBook Pro shortly, and curious if that huge increase in CPU/GPU will actually translate into a faster response on the screen.
