The Blackmagic Design UltraStudio Mini Recorder Capture Device is a mini recorder that fits in your pocket by refining its design down to SDI and HDMI connections, plus Thunderbolt. It is, essentially, the "capture" aspect of any Blackmagic capture and playback device.
The intended purpose of the Blackmagic Design UltraStudio only capturing, as opposed to unloading a camera's memory card onto a computer, is to transfer the highest quality footage possible. A capture and playback device performs this function in one of two ways.
Firstly, by capturing live from a camera as it records. In this case footage is recorded directly from the camera's sensor, bypassing compression and as a result transferring pure uncompressed footage. Alternatively, video can be captured from a camera's play back footage that had already been recorded and stored. In this second option the footage is compressed as it is recorded. This can be attributed to inadequate hardware since a memory card has nowhere near the storage space necessary to hold uncompressed video.
Blackmagic's Media Express software, which is free to use to accept and encode incoming footage, is included as a free download with purchase. The Blackmagic Design UltraStudio Mini Recorder connects to camera by HDMI or SDI and outputs to a computer by Thunderbolt.
