Blackmagic Design UltraStudio 4k Extreme Features:

  • Built In Hardware Video Encoding
    The UltraStudio 4KExtreme model features a built in multi format hardware encoder that lets youcapture to H.265 and ProRes files. H.265 is quickly becoming the compressionstandard for distributing Ultra HD content online, and ProRes is the world’smost popular post production format. When selected for ProRes on Mac OS X, thebuilt in hardware encoder encodes the video in real time allowing you to gobeyond the speed of Thunderbolt because high resolution and high frame ratevideo can be compressed internally and then only the lower data rate ProResdata is transferred over the Thunderbolt connection. Realtime ProRes encodingalso means you can capture higher resolution formats on slower computers, likelaptops, that normally wouldn’t be able to handle them, dramatically loweringthe cost and speed requirements of your workstations.
