The Power of Thunderbolt™
Built on revolutionary Thunderbolt™ technology, UltraStudio uses a blazingly fast single cable connection to your computer that has the bandwidth to handle the highest resolution video formats easily! Thunderbolt ensures low latency and highly accurate time synchronization for the highest quality capture and playback. UltraStudio Express and UltraStudio Mini models are powered via the Thunderbolt connection so they are extremely portable. The high performance UltraStudio 4K and UltraStudio 4K Extreme models feature double speed Thunderbolt 2 with loop thru and 6G-SDI or 12G-SDI. UltraStudio 4K Extreme 3 features the incredibly fast, 40Gb/s Thunderbolt 3 connection, making it ideal for demanding 3D stereoscopic workflows, Ultra HD and DCI 4K.

Amazing 4K resolutions in compressed or uncompressed
UltraStudio 4K supports popular compressed video formats such as ProRes and DNxHD as well as 10-bit uncompressed video, so you’re not locked into a single file format. When working with uncompressed video all captured images are a perfect pixel-for-pixel clone of the source without any quality loss, so you have the confidence you’re working at the absolute highest quality possible. Get the sharpest keying with green screens, cleanest compositions, superior color correction and more! Ultra HD 4K has 4 times the resolution of 1080HD for amazing looking images!

6G SDI - Compatible with SD, HD and Ultra HD formats
UltraStudio 4K features 6G-SDI so you get full compatibly with all your SD, 720p and 1080HD equipment up to 60 fps, plus you can instantly switch to Ultra HD up to 30 fps! Thats an incredible range of video formats with a single regular BNC SDI connection! Because the 6G-SDI connections are multi rate, they can switch between 270 Mb/s, 1.5 Gb/s, 3 Gb/s and 6 Gb/s data rates for compatibility with your existing SD, HD or Ultra HD equipment.

12G SDI - Incredible speed for high frame rate Ultra HD
UltraStudio 4K Extreme models feature the latest 12G-SDI technology, making it the world’s most powerful video capture and playback solution!

Only 12G-SDI gives you the compatibility to connect to all your existing SD and HD equipment but also supports the future with all Ultra HD formats up to 2160p60. UltraStudio 4K Extreme even supports dual link 12G-SDI so you can do stereoscopic and simultaneous fill and key all in real time!
