Blackmagic Design HyperDeck Studio is a single-rack-unit, VTR-like device that has dual slots for 2.5" SATA solid state
disks (SSDs). HyperDeck Studio captures and plays back uncompressed 10-bit SD and HD QuickTime files, making it a
versatile piece of gear that could land a starring role in workflows ranging from production to playout.
The promise of recording uncompressed 10-bit HD QuickTime files via HDMI or HD-SDI to portable, hot-swappable,
relatively affordable media is probably quite apparent already. Suddenly, capturing clean, uncompressed VFX shots in the
studio is within the reach of the independent auteur with a compact professional camcorder - so long as it has an HD-SDI
or HDMI output, as almost all of them do.
Then, while the shooting continues, that SSD drive can be pulled and instantly mounted to any laptop with a standard
eSATA dock, for immediate, direct access to the footage. Open your effects program and try to pull a key before copying
any files; if the shot didn't work, you'll know right away, while the actors are still standing in front of the green
screen. Moreover, instant client preview is as easy as connecting HyperDeck Studio to an HDMI- or SDI-enabled projector.
With hot-swapping and relay recording between the two SSD drives, there are no temporal constraints on your workflow.
HyperDeck Studio's utility extends much further than the soundstage, of course. With familiar VTR-style controls
including a jog/shuttle wheel, an RS-422 deck control input, a sync input for blackburst & tri-sync, and an LCD screen
for local monitoring of video, audio & time code, the deck is ready to be fully integrated into a facility's video
infrastructure, for playing out to air or feeding a switcher for live events. Connect to Anything. Open File Format.
