DeckLink 4K Extreme

DeckLink 4K Extreme features a new high performance design for working in film quality 4K! Get 4 times the resolution of 1080HD! DeckLink 4K Extreme includes single and dual channel SDI capture and playback for both regular 2D and new 3D stereoscopic workflows! Includes dual link 3 Gb/s SDI, HDMI 3D and analog component/composite/s-video connections. Work in SD, HD, 2K and 4K. Also includes AES and analog balanced audio, 16 channel SDI audio, genlock and deck control. SDI, HDMI and analog component works in all video formats up to 1080p60. Includes broadcast quality up, down and cross conversion, plus built in SD/HD internal keyer.

Compatible Software:

  • Final Cut Pro™- Edit in Final Cut Pro™ while using the highest quality 10 bit HD-SDI video connection to HD decks including, HDCAM™ SR, HDCAM™, HD-D5™ and DVCPRO HD™, as well as SD decks such as Digital Betacam™. DeckLink support for Final Cut Pro™ allows you to batch capture from decks and play back the timeline with RT Extreme™ real time effects, all with absolute sample accurate AV sync. DeckLink cards support more advanced Final Cut Pro™ features such as 10 bit rendering, RT Extreme™, 16 channel audio, deck control, support for ProRes, JPEG, DV, DVCPRO, DVCPRO HD, 8 & 10 bit uncompressed video and more. DeckLink cards are qualified by Apple™ for Final Cut Pro™ compatibility.
  • Avid Media Composer 6™- Avid Media Composer has been the choice of professional editors for over 20 years. The Avid Media Composer 6 family of software, including Avid Symphony and Avid NewsCutter, provides fully integrated support for DeckLink HD Extreme 3D. Capture and playback in full 10 bit uncompressed 4:2:2 and 4:4:4 quality, or directly in Avid DNxHD or other popular compressed video formats. DeckLink HD Extreme 3D and Media Composer 6 also lets you capture, edit, monitor and playback dual stream 3D projects. Media Composer 6 has fast and familiar operation and it’s new 64 bit architecture plays back complex layered effects in real time. DeckLink is the perfect choice for professionals looking for the best possible Avid workflow on Mac OS X and Windows 7.
  • Adobe Premiere Pro™- DeckLink is the highest quality editing solution for Adobe Premiere Pro. Included are a full suite of Premiere Pro plug-ins with deck control and full support for 8 and 10 bit uncompressed AVI and QuickTime™ files, as well as Motion JPEG and DVCPRO HD which can all be played back on the same Premiere Pro timeline without rendering. QuickTime™ uncompressed files from Mac OS X™ systems can also be played back for cross-platform media sharing! You can even play back AVCHD, DSLR and XDCAM HD. DeckLink has full support for Premiere Pro's 8 channels of audio capture and playback via HD/SD-SDI, which is great for 5.1 surround sound editing.
  • Adobe After Effects™- Adobe After Effects is one of the most popular tools for broadcast graphics and animation and DeckLink has special features that take full advantage of this great app! Because After Effects is fully QuickTime™ based, it works with all Blackmagic's media. You can also open and render Blackmagic's uncompressed 10 and 8 bit AVI and QuickTime™ files too. Files can be dropped into Final Cut Pro™ or Premiere Pro timelines without rendering, so you can move media between tools. DeckLink also provides full RAM preview playback, so you can always see what you're working on. There is no better solution for using After Effects for high end work than DeckLink cards!
  • Adobe Photoshop™- DeckLink includes special Photoshop plug-ins, so you can directly capture and output still frames from within the Photoshop. If you're working with 10 bit HD/SD-SDI, you can even import and export 16 bit Photoshop™ images for full quality. Use DeckLink's 'keying to export' and key standard definition graphics from the video input using Photoshop alpha channels. Outputting Photoshop graphics from DeckLink lets you see the correct color and the effects of video interlace and field movement. DeckLink uses 'unity gain on,' so you can't get illegal 100% RGB video levels, eliminating surprises when graphics are output to tape!
  • Avid Pro Tools™- Pro Tools is the world's most popular audio post production tool and now all DeckLink cards support playback of the Pro Tools reference movies out to the video outputs all in real time! When doing audio post production for video masters, it's incredibly easy to accidentally remove parts of audio while mixing and editing, and cause lip sync misalignments between the video and audio tracks. Eliminate this problem by adding a DeckLink card to your ProTools system and playing video and audio together while mixing!

World's Highest Quality!
Fully compatible with SD-SDI and HD-SDI 4:2:2, new DeckLink HD Extreme 3D also features Dual Link HD-SDI 4:4:4 connections for feature film quality. Dual Link 4:4:4 is used on the latest Sony HDCAM SR decks, and contains additional color detail giving you full RGB color bandwidth and extra precision of up to 10 bit SDI video. When connected via PCI Express to a host computer, this higher quality video can be captured and played back completely uncompressed for amazing feature film quality. DeckLink HD Extreme 3D also takes a new lead in quality with the latest 3 Gb/s SDI technology, so you can connect RGB 4:4:4 and 2K and even 3D via a single SDI connection. 3 Gb/s SDI technology is the video standard of the future for post production, and allows "beyond HDTV resolutions". DeckLink HD Extreme 3D is ideal for connecting to Digital Betacam™, Panasonic HD-D5™ or the new Sony HDCAM SR decks. Uncompressed 10 bit video is the highest quality possible from the SDI television system, and only uncompressed video will hold up under heavy working conditions demanded by clients today while retaining a delicate film look.

Move between SD, HDTV and 2K
DeckLink HD Extreme 3D supports dual rate SDI so you can instantly switch between SD and HD. This is ideal for modern workflows where HD may be a smaller part of the market for most people. Most people run standard definition for 80% or more of their work, but need high definition capability for specific spots. With SDI products, such as DeckLink cards and Blackmagic converters, you can immediately switch over to HD when a job comes along. Full resolution video is supported from standard definition SDI using 720 x 486 for NTSC and 720 x 576 for PAL, and the HDTV resolutions of 1280 x 720 for the 720p HD standard and 1920x1080 for the 1080 HD standard, or use the built in 3 Gb/s SDI connections for full 2048 x 1556 playback at 24 fps, for perfect for feature film workflow. Now you can take on HD and 2K jobs when they come along, keeping your equipment productive with standard definition work.

Hardware Down Converter
If you've ever wanted to monitor in both HD and SD while you work, then you'll love the built in high quality down converter on the DeckLink HD Extreme 3D model that's always active on the SD-SDI, S-Video and composite video output connections. This lets you use the main SD/HD-SDI output for HD, while simultaneously using the SD-SDI, S-Video and composite outputs for standard definition. When working in HD the built in down converter lets all video outputs remain active in both capture and playback mode, and in all HD video formats! You can instantly select between letterbox, anamorphic 16:9 and center cut 4:3 down conversion styles.

Incredibly Low SDI Jitter
For highest quality digital broadcast workflows, DeckLink cards include incredible 10 bit SD/HD-SDI video with low SDI jitter, combined with AES/EBU digital audio with a high performance linear phase digital filtered sample rate converter. DeckLink Studio features a total of 10 on board power supplies to isolate high precision analog electronics from digital noise, so you get pristine quality analog video and audio. Only DeckLink cards provides all the quality you need for the most demanding broadcast environments and ensures your work retains that wonderful film look.

Built in SD Keyer!
When working in standard definition, DeckLink cards include the most amazing quality digital internal keyer that lets you key RGBA images over the video input. That's a total keying solution built right into DeckLink. The built in keyer works great when used with Blackmagic Design's included Photoshop plug-ins, or even with RGBA animated video software for keying. If you want to perform keying externally, such as an external video mixer, then just select external key and DeckLink will output the key channel on the SD-SDI output, with the fill channel on the main SD/HD-SDI output.

Live Broadcast Graphics Presentation
Use the built-in SD keyer for overlaying graphics live into production switchers. Even if you're only adding station indents, keying makes it easy when using the two SDI outputs as fill and key. Use the Blackmagic LiveKey application for turning on and off the keying function. Blackmagic LiveKey will also automatically fade graphics on and off for specific times. DeckLink works with all available QuickTime™ software tools.

True Professional Quality Audio
DeckLink HD Extreme 3D features unbalanced AES digital audio in and out as well as XLR balanced pro audio for incredible quality while maintaining sample accurate AV sync. DeckLink HD Extreme 3D includes a sample rate converter on the AES/EBU input, so you can connect to any digital audio device, as either synchronized or un-synchronized sources. DeckLink HD Extreme 3D also includes a massive 16 channels of SDI embedded audio support for HD capture and playback, and 8 channels of SDI embedded audio for standard definition capture and playback.QuickTime™ and DirectShow™ DriversDeckLink cards work with the widest range of video software because of DirectShow™ and QuickTime™ compatibility. QuickTime™ and DirectShow™ are frameworks within Mac OS X™ and Windows™ operating systems that let application software capture and playback via hardware cards. Once a card is QuickTime™ or DirectShow™ compatible, then it’s also compatible with hundreds of software utilities, ranging from large editing software to small custom utilities. Unlike expensive prebuilt systems, with QuickTime™ and DirectShow™ compatibility you have the freedom to configure your system exactly the way you want!

Online or Offline Editing
DeckLink lets you edit in uncompressed online quality or use compressed video formats for offline work, where you have a large amount of media. Using uncompressed 10 bit capture eliminates the need to recapture media for a separate online process. This saves you time, lets you work right up to deadlines, and means you always work with highest picture quality! Alternatively, you can work with the native camera codecs you shoot with, like DVCPRO HD and HDCAM SR, or edit with a codec like ProRes or DNxHD. DeckLink works with all popular compressed video formats!

Customize your Systems
You can mix and match system components such as DeckLink models and software applications any way you like to build a system that perfectly suits your needs!  For example, if you need large screen monitoring for a graphics or compositing system, then simply connect the HDMI output of DeckLink Studio or DeckLink HD Extreme 3D to an LCD or Plasma display. If you work in a facility with SDI cabling and routing, then DeckLink SDI can provide all the connectivity you need for your editing workstation. Talk with your local Blackmagic Design reseller about your workflow needs and they’ll customize a solution that's perfect for you. Or if you prefer you can build your own!
