Works just as described. Robust product. Typical Blackmagic...

Once you have the correct drivers installed its a doodle but the black magic website isn't the clearest as to what needs downloading and adjusting to work on a mac.

Great small device that can take a HDMI or SDI input at up to Full HD. The unit gets very warm in use, though this doesn't seem to have any negative effects on the device.

Not plug and play but does its job well once software is installed. Software installation very straightforward.
