    The Blackmagic Design UltraStudio SDI is an ultra-portable USB 3, 10-bit capture playback device with SDI and HDMI monitoring plus gunlock and RS-422 deck control built in. The USB 3.0 connection gives high speeds of 4.8Gb/s, 10 x faster than USB 2.

    The UltraStudio SDI uses the highest quality low jitter SDI connections, which instantly switch between HD and SD formats. Connect to decks such as Digital Betacam, HDCAM, HDCAM-SR, Panasonic D5, Sony PMW-F3 and includes HDMI 1.4 out, so you can use any television as a broadcast monitor, dramatically lowering the overall cost of editing systems. UltraStudio SDI includes deck control, genlock and fully powers via USB 3.0.

    The UltraStudio SDI comes completed with Blackmagic's Media express for batch capture and out put to Tape. Alternatively it is compatible with all of the most popular non-linear editing systems including Adobe Premier Pro and Sony Vegas.
