Setting a permanent output standard (e.g.1080i50) to a PVD 5806 / 5840 is quickly done following these steps:

1 - Route the video signal path for both (or one) SDI output(s) to the HiQ converter output.

2 - Click on the "HiQConv"-TAB and set the output format to 1080i50.

This will only work with even video input standards (frame rates), e.g. 625, 720p50, 1080i50, 720p25, ...!
1080i50 output signals cannot be provided with e.g. a 525, 1080p24, 720p59, ... input signals.

Additionally you may check the "Lock Image Converter Settings" box to prevent automatic change of settings.
