Default Re: who uses picture monitor for plugins etc?

Frank and Brandon - is there benefit to having your video playback device (decklink, etc) genlocked if all you do is play video out of it? If one was capturing video through it I could see the need, but looking ahead to purchasing a thunderbolt-based video peripheral I'm wondering if I actually need one that resolves to house sync (like a blackmagic ultrastudio express) or if I can go with a cheaper option that doesn't have a sync input (like a blackmagic intensity extreme.) Thanks for filling in my blanks.

(FWIW We currently use blackmagic decklink extreme cards for PT video playback and do have them resolved to house sync.)

Best,
Greg
