  • Using a Ki Pro in place of a Matrox MX02 for Apple Cinema Diplays Monitoring.

    Just got into a new office. Past setup was Matrox MX02/Macbook Pro into a Apple Cinema display for broadcast colour checking running through the thunderbolt port.

    The new office has uncalibrated Apple Cinema Displays running direct into MBP…and they have a horrible Yellow colour to them.

    Strangely in the cupboard there is a Ki Pro sitting about doing nothing. Would there be any way of running the Ki Pro like an I/O device to set up the Cinema display as a broadcast monitor?

    I know that sounds like a crazy use of a $4000 device; but its here and doing nothing.

    The KiPro is a playback and record device. If you are just looking for a monitor out, you want the AJA T-Tap. Keep in mind, an Apple Cinema Display is a Computer Monitor, not a TV/Broadcast monitor.
