Can Hreo6 record at 4Kp30 while in same time show what it seeing on 4K TV trough HDMI connection?

[ Edited ]

I need to connect the Hero6 with 4K TV trough HDMI connection and let the camera record at 4K30 on it's memory card while in the same time showing what the hero6 seeing during the recording in the 4K TV, (Not Playback)

My inquiries are :

--> is the camera can handle the two process in the same time?

--> what is the HDMI output resolution in this case, is it will be 4K30?

--> I searched alot and communicate with GOPRO Customer service and actually there are a big confusion about this case, So Please Can someone experiment this case and help me ?

Hello @coolflame64766

 

Thank you for reaching out. Please see below for answers to your questions. 

 

--> is the camera can handle the two process in the same time? Yes, you will be able to view what the camera is recording while the camera is recording. To do this, the camera must be set to Monitor. 

--> what is the HDMI output resolution in this case, is it will be 4K30? HERO6 Black doe snot support 4K output n HDMI while recording, but can do so in live preview or when the camera is idle. When recording, the output will be at 720x480 at 60fps. This article provides more information on this. 

 

I hope this helps. Feel free to post back for any other concerns or questions that you may have. 

 

Thanks, 
Marius

Dear Marius;

Thank you for your reply and fast respons.

 

I read the article and i have inquiry regarding to your second answer:

--> in this case, what is the relation between the recording resolution and HDMI Output resolution ( for Example: If i record on 2K30 or 1080p30, is the max resolution of the out HDMI will upgrade or it will set as the same (720x480)?

Good question, @coolflame64766 . it would not matter what the resolution setting on the camera is, the output resolution on the HDTV screen while the camera is recording will be in 720x480. 

 

Thanks, 

Marius
