DeckLink 4K Extreme 12G-Quad SDI BLACKMAGIC DESIGN -Add Quad Link SDI input and output to DeckLink 4K Extreme 12G capture cards.
The Blackmagic Design DeckLink Quad [model BDLKHDEXTR4KQUAD] is four independent SDI capture and playback cards in one! Includes four SDI inputs and four SDI outputs that can be independently switched between SD and HD video formats, as well as a common black burst/tri-sync input for all four channels. DeckLink Quad appears as four independent SDI cards to the computer, but only uses a single PCI Express slot. DeckLink Quad includes a built in watchdog timer under API control with bypass relays for a robust broadcast solution that automatically switches to bypass if power is lost, or software crashes. That's perfect for broadcast servers! Each SDI input and output can be a different video standard as they are all completely independent.
Highest Quality Connections
Every DeckLink card features the highest quality connections so you get pristine video and audio quality and can connect to the widest range of professional SDI equipment. DeckLink 4K Extreme 12G includes Dual Link 12G-SDI, HDMI 4K, analog video, as well as 2 channels of AES/EBU audio and 2 channels of balanced analog audio in and out. DeckLink Studio 4K includes 6G-SDI, HDMI 1.4b, analog component, S-Video, composite video, 2 channels of AES/EBU audio and 4 channels of balanced analog audio in and out. You also get a down converted SD output. DeckLink SDI 4K is perfect for high quality 10 bit SDI use only. All models include black burst/tri-sync reference and serial deck control. All DeckLink 4K models switch between SD and HD and Ultra HD, while the advanced DeckLink 4K Extreme 12G and DeckLink 4K Pro support DCI 4K and other high frame rate feature film formats.
Unrivaled Video Quality
DeckLink lets you work with compressed video formats such as ProRes and DNxHD as well as 10-bit uncompressed video. When working with uncompressed, all images are a mathematically perfect pixel-for-pixel clone of the source, without any generational loss, so you have the confidence you’re working at the absolute highest quality possible. Get sharper keying with green screens, cleaner compositions, superior color correction and more! Should you need to use compression, support for industry leading file formats ensures that you can maintain the highest quality throughout post production.
Get the latest 6G-SDI and 12G-SDI technology so you can capture and playback in full resolution Ultra HD video, while remaining fully compatible with all SD and HD-SDI equipment! That’s 4 times the resolution of regular 1080 HD video at a massive 3840 x 2160 image size. DeckLink SDI 4K and the DeckLink Studio 4K include 6G-SDI, while the advanced DeckLink 4K Pro and DeckLink 4K Extreme 12G include Dual Link 12G-SDI connections for higher color resolution, dual stream 3D stereoscopic support and frame rates up to Ultra HD 60p. The DeckLink 4K Pro and DeckLink 4K Extreme 12G are the perfect choice for DaVinci Resolve editing and color correction.
