Blackmagic UltraStudio HD Mini Portable Thunderbolt 3 Capture and Playback
Blackmagic UltraStudio HD Mini, the world’s first portable Thunderbolt 3 capture and playback solution designed for archiving, edit monitoring, streaming and live broadcast graphics.
With UltraStudio HD Mini, Blackmagic has taken a different direction by including some new connections people needed, and dropping some of the connections people don’t use anymore. No one uses analog out anymore!
However, people are capturing from older analog and digital broadcast decks for archiving content to modern digital media files. People also want to run live graphics into switcher with fill and key and of course we often need to get high quality monitoring in HDMI and SDI when editing and color grading and need perfect AV sync. It also works with Open Broadcaster software for live 1080p streaming.
Blackmagic UltraStudio HD Mini has been designed to do these tasks well, and we have fit it all into the small Teranex Mini sized design. It’s even Thunderbolt powered so you don’t need to connect it to a power supply. You can even power it from your laptop battery! You can sit it on your desk beside your laptop, making it a great portable solution to take on the road.
If you add the optional Teranex Mini Smart Panel you also get video, audio meters and status, including a new frame buffer indicator to assist in evaluating disk performance on broadcast systems. You can also rack mount multiple units using the Teranex Mini Rack Shelf.
Blackmagic UltraStudio HD Mini includes 3G-SDI and HDMI outputs for edit monitoring. Plus the 3G-SDI outputs are dual link so you can output separate fill and key to live switchers.
The inputs include 3G-SDI as well as Y,Cr,Cb analog component or NTSC/PAL inputs, along with balanced analog inputs for connecting to older digital or analog broadcast decks for archiving. There are even deck control and reference inputs!
