[Video] RGB Output

There is no specific option to output RGB as it is computer signal. But if your monitor is not compatible with YCbCr, the Zappiti DV Series will automatically output RGB 4:4:4 over HDMI MAIN OUT. 

Note that in RGB (4:4:4), it is not possible to output in 4:2:2 or 4:2:0 because the three layers (luminance and 2 chrominance layers) are in full format. This means that the 4:2:0 YCbCr signal encoded in a Blu-ray or 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray is decoded by the player instead of being sent in 4:2:0 and sent in 4:2:2 (or 4:4:4) to your projector, TV or external scaler (MadVR, Lumagen or other). In order to preserve the best possible quality, we favor YCbCr 4:2:2 and 4:2:0 video output signals (as far as possible according to video output standards).

Also note that in video, the YCbCr 4:2:0 format used for DVD, Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray compression, is not part of the video output standards (EBU / SMPTE). The stream is therefore necessarily reconverted to 4:2:2 (of 4:4:4 if you want). Only YCbCr 4:2:0 4K UHD streams at 50 and 60p can output natively in YCbCr 4:2:0.
