The Blackmagic Design DeckLink 4K Extreme Capture & Playback Card is an internal capture and playback card that transfers video from your camera to your computer with the goal of transferring the highest quality footage possible. Featuring advanced versions of top quality connections, QuickTime and DPX compatibility, and compressed and uncompressed video transfer capacity, this card works with the widest range of video equipment and editing software and is clearly one of the highest-capable cards ever made.
It captures from your camera at a maximum of 2K resolution, but can play back at up to 4K, meaning that any 4K footage you may have on your computer from another input source, you can output for monitoring in full 4K on a separate display. 4K is handled by both the SDI and HDMI outputs, with the SDI processing in 4:2:2 and with only two BNC cables as opposed to the common four. (The SDI ports are Dual Link 3 Gb/s SDI.)
Work with Most Any Equipment and Software
DeckLink 4K Extreme features every kind of connection, quality, file format and software compatibility you may need. It additionally has high-precision audio that includes 2 channels of AES/EBU in and out with a sample rate converter on the AES/EBU input as well as 2 channels of XLR professional analog audio in and out. You can work with the widest range of equipment, such as HDCAM, HD-D5, HDCAM SR, Betacam SP, Digital Betacam, HD receivers, HDV cameras, televisions, mixers and more. With built in Dual Link 3 Gb/s SDI, you can capture and playback 4:4:4 video when used with decks such as Sony HDCAM SR, or view real time playback of 2K film resolution at 24 fps with Blackmagic Design's HDLink Pro.
With Dual Link 3 Gb/s SDI connections, DeckLink is the perfect capture and playback device for your work now, and well into the future! Connect all your I/O devices with 3 Gb/s HD-SDI, HDMI, and analog video in and out, as well as 16 channel SDI audio, genlock and tri-level sync, and serial deck control. The Dual Link 3 Gb/s SDI connections easily handle 4:4:4 video, 1080p60 frame rates and dual stream 3D stereoscopic capture and playback. Dual Link 3 Gb/s SDI allows a new video standard for handling 4:2:2 4K playback for monitoring. Dual Link 3 Gb/s SDI processes 4K with only 2 BNC cables, instead of the 4 BNC cables required in the past.
QuickTime and DirectShow Software Drivers
DeckLink cards work with the widest range of video software because of DirectShow and QuickTime compatibility. QuickTime and DirectShow are frameworks within Mac OS X and Windows operating systems that let application software capture and playback via hardware cards. Once a card is QuickTime or DirectShow compatible, then it's also compatible with hundreds of software utilities, ranging from large editing software to small custom utilities. Unlike expensive prebuilt systems, with QuickTime and DirectShow compatibility you have the freedom to configure your system exactly the way you want.
Online or Offline Editing
DeckLink lets you edit in uncompressed online quality or use compressed video formats for offline work, where you have a large amount of media. Using uncompressed 10 bit capture eliminates the need to recapture media for a separate online process. This saves you time, lets you work right up to deadlines, and means you always work with highest picture quality! Alternatively, you can work with the native camera codecs you shoot with, like DVCPRO HD and HDCAM SR, or edit with a codec like ProRes or DNxHD. DeckLink works with all popular compressed video formats!
