Blackmagic Design Decklink SDI 4K Capture and Playback Card
PCIe capture and playback in SDI that connects to any SD, HD-SDI, 2K and Ultra HD equipment
DeckLink SDI 4K is perfect when you need an SDI only solution but demand the highest quality SDI capture and playback. You get incredible quality 6G-SDI on any PCI Express Mac, Windows or Linux computer. DeckLink SDI 4K is the world’s smallest and most affordable multi rate SD/HD and Ultra HD SDI video card that lets you connect to any SD, HD-SDI, 2K and Ultra HD equipment. You also get RS-422 deck control, internal keying and reference input for a complete solution for editing, paint, design and more.
The Blackmagic Design Decklink SDI 4K Capture and Playback Card delivers a single multi-rate SDI input and multi-rate SDI output. These multi-rate connections are compatible with single-link SD, HD, 3G, and 6G-SDI signals, permitting resolutions from SD to Ultra HD 4K (3840x2160) and DCI 4K (4096x2160). In addition, the Decklink SDI 4K includes RS-422 deck control, internal keying, and a reference input.
Decklink SDI 4K provides adaptable format and system support, allowing the user to work both with compressed video formats like ProRes and DNxHD as well as 10-bit uncompressed video. For uncompressed, every image is a pixel-for-pixel carbon copy of the source, without generational loss. This affords superior colour correction, sharper keying with green screens, cleaner compositions and more. No other capture cards support more applications and more platforms than Blackmagic Design’s DeckLink series - you can always work with your favourite software. Support for common file formats provides ready-to-edit files for use in popular editing, effects, and design software applications. As a result, Decklink SDI 4K is compatible with Mac, Windows, and Linux based workstations.
DeckLink capture and playback cards are used daily in professional industries producing television adverts, music videos, episodic series and Hollywood feature films. The highest quality video and maximum reliability is delivered by the most cutting edge in-built technologies.
