Resolve 11 adds 12 bit monitoring support with the BlackMagic Decklink 4K Extreme and the UltraStudio 4K

12 bit monitoring is great when grading LOG for digital cinema (DCP) on a 12 bit digital cinema projector.

To have the correct black level and correct contrast ratio you will need the correct review room contrast ratio in the cinema: 1500:1, 100:1 intra frame. Movie theaters have 1200:1.

You will also need the correct white light level (14 fL) in the cinema to get the contrast correct.

You will also need a dark room.

See this post for more info on good projection.
