Product Description

Details

HyperDeck Studio disk recorders let you record the highest quality uncompressed or compressed ProRes and DNxHD video formats using fast 2.5" SSDs. Designed with familiar VTR controls, HyperDeck Studio includes innovative features that extend beyond the capabilities of traditional decks. Dual SSD slots let you record continuously, so when one disk is full recording automatically continues on the next SSD. You can mount an SSD recorded from HyperDeck Studio on any computer to access your files, so you can work with your media directly without copying the files. There are three great HyperDeck Studio models to choose from depending on your budget and what video formats you need to work with.

Replace Aging Decks

Record broadcast quality 10-bit video

HyperDeck Studio is a fantastic modern replacement for aging broadcast decks. You get the same functionality and control of a professional deck with the advantage of recording directly to uncompressed or industry standard ProRes and DNxHD video formats. Connect cameras, switchers or any other video feed to HyperDeck Studio and create files that are perfect for every production and post production workflow. With a slim 1 rack unit design, HyperDeck Studio is considerably smaller than a traditional VTR and fits easily into any equipment rack, OB vehicle or flyway kit.

High Frame Rate Ultra HD

Record incredible high frame rate 2160p60 video.

The advanced HyperDeck Studio 12G model includes 12G-SDI which allows Ultra HD at higher frames up to 60 fps. For years broadcasters have used high frame rate 720p and 1080p HD to cover sport and other fast action events. Now with 12G-SDI, HyperDeck Studio 12G can record the same high frame rates in Ultra HD. Now broadcasters can obtain the same production values of high frame rates, combined with the incredibly high resolution of Ultra HD, all down a single SDI BNC cable. 12G-SDI is multi rate so it also plugs into all your SD, HD-SDI, 3G-SDI and 6G-SDI equipment, and HyperDeck Studio 12G switches standards instantly, as it records whatever SDI signal is input and plays back whatever files you put on the SSD. Only 12G-SDI is the format of the future, that also connects to all the equipment you have today.

Full 10-bit Quality
