Boost revenue from content with Blackmagic Duplicator 4K1 February 2017
The Blackmagic Duplicator 4K allows the delivery of Ultra HD content to consumers by recording files onto inexpensive SD cards that can be distributed to customers the moment an event is finished.
Featuring 25 built-in SD card recorders, multi-rate 12G-SDI connections and a real-time H.265 encoder, Blackmagic Duplicator 4K enables content owners to deliver Ultra HD content that customers can view on their 4K televisions and Windows 10 computers.
The Blackmagic Duplicator 4K could allow content creators to increase revenue because it gives them a way to sell content right after a live event, while attendees are still excited about the performance. Customers can sell concert videos to fans as they leave the venue, to parents after their children’s latest performance or recital, after sporting events, conferences, sales seminars and more.
The product encodes video using H.265, which is the new standard for Ultra HD delivery, and saves files in an open file format on to standard SD cards. The built-in real-time H.265 hardware encoder gives customers Ultra HD video, at high frame rates up to 2160p60.
Featuring 25 SD card recorders miniaturised into a single rack unit, the Blackmagic Duplicator 4K uses standard, common SD cards that are readily available, thin, inexpensive and fast. Cards can be used for SD, HD and Ultra HD video up to 2160p60 and are compatible with Windows 10 computers. With the addition of a USB adapter, SD cards can even be plugged directly into most consumer Ultra HD televisions for immediate playback of the video.
