To those of you who are still loving your TB-6, that includes me. Greg is working on a HD-SDI upgrade for his TB-6 monitor. This is a true digital input board not a "build in down-converter". It will make the TB-6 HD-SDI compatible and increase the picture quality significantly.

 

Cost and availability are not know at this point. Older TB-6 monitors will be upgradable.

 

Hold on to you green screens.....

He was talking about that at Cinegear, it's going to be part of the Digital PDL, but in the end it puts out a analog signal for the TB6....

 

After changing to a color monitor I'll never go back to a green screen, it's too limiting

I put my tb6 on Friday for some day work and jeez do I miss it! This would be such a great option in his new pdl! I don't care about missing the color...I already have a moral ambiguity, so color, black/white, green...it's all good to me!

to my knowledge it's a stand-alone TB-6 board upgrade and not part of the HD-PDL, which is in its final stages of testing...and will be available first/soon. and yes, the final signal going to the TB-6 tube is obviously analog but not a "down-converted to ntsc" signal...

details are still emerging, as i understand this, it will maximize the quality of the TB-6 (tube) and provide a direct HD-SDI compatibility including a set of framelines...i have a feeling it might loose the SD (NTSC) input, but I'm not sure at this point

And it's still a NTSC downconverter. you can't digitally drive a flyback coil it has to be analog

Being analog doesn't make it an NTSC downconverter. You can be in the analogue world and still have HD(or atleast something higher than NTSC) resolution. I see no practical significance to whether the guts handle things in an analogue or digital world. That said I don't know what the resolution of it will be, but sounds like better than NTSC.
