EX footage at 1080p and 720p

After the help form the forum I got my system to work, my joy was short lived
just learned that my capture card Multibridge Pro does not support 1080p or 720p just 1080i, I can't playback the footage to my SD or HD monitor, any workaround.
I work with my clients in the suite, and the way is layed out they can not see the computer monitor as I do, this is a big problem for me.
The other thing is to shot 1080i but, my clients like the "film look" of shooting
at 24p.

A possible compromise would be to shoot 1080/24p in the SP mode, which outputs on HD-SDI port playback as 1080/60i. A slightly "less" image than in HQ mode, but a richer, more detailed image than what you would pull from a Z1U, XD-A1 etc.

OK I see...it outputs via HD sdi , my dealer hasn't delivered the second card so I'm limited to the 8G so I have to download the footage on location

Hi Boris,

This is not true. Multibridge Pro supports 720p and 1080p (depending on the framerate). Most 1080p decks output using PsF which is what the Multibridge Pro supports.
