In the available documentation via the web, the video output from the HDMI connector is listed as;
  • 1 x HDMI support up to 1080P@30FPS
Is this correct?

Some computer monitors won't do 30 frames per second. For example, my older ViewSonic monitor is limited to 50 - 76 frames per second. Thus, the BeagleV board would not work on it.

That said, this looks like a wonderful board, and one I will follow it's progress.

Hi Arwen,

That smells like the old wiki for the "BeagleBone"... The HDMI spec's
of the "BeagleV" has not been officially released yet. ;)

Where is this so I can fix it. It should be 1080p60.

Hi Arwen,

That smells like the old wiki for the "BeagleBone"...  The HDMI spec's
of the "BeagleV" has not been officially released yet. ;)

Sure, but we can check with the design and designers. I think it could be higher in the production version. The primary limitation is the use of a parallel LCD interface and an HDMI framer device, a TDA19988. Now do you know why the limitation sounds familiar?  ;-)

The DSI can output 4K@30fps.

I checked with the designers and tweeted about this at:


I'll try to send our first FAQ e-mail out to this list in a week or two and will make sure this is included.

This is the web page that I am referring to;


It clearly states 30 frames per second as;

• 1 x HDMI support up to 1080P@30FPS

That's the encoder/decoder ip block, not the actual hdmi output...

Thanks.

Looks like the other web site has slightly different information;


• 1 x HDMI 1.4 support up to 1080P@60fps

This is more hopeful. That was one of the things that would have stopped me from buying one.

The other site, has @30fps

It is correct. I verified with the hardware engineer in charge. The LCD+framer output is limited to 1080P@30fps.

The DSI output will be at 4K@30fps.

So, I was wrong.
