Several recent major upgrades to Blackmagic Design’s product range are on show at ISE 2014, demonstrating support for flexible and affordable Ultra-HD workflows for broadcast, live and AV productions.
The new ATEM 1 M/E Production Studio 4K includes 10 independent 6G-SDI inputs each with frame sync, built-in DVE with zoom, scale and rotate, four upstream chroma keyers, three independent aux outputs with front panel control, and a larger media pool that holds both still frame graphics and motion video clips.
ATEM 1 M/E Production Studio 4K lets customers work and master to Ultra-HD when used with the HyperDeck Studio Pro, which has Ultra-HD and 6G-SDI support. This allows events to be captured in the television format of the future and is ideal for live music events, sporting events, theatre productions, programme production, conferences and more.
There is also a high definition down-converted HD-SDI programme output for when the switcher is operating in Ultra-HD formats, but a regular HD programme feed is required.
The HyperDeck Studio 2 and HyperDeck Studio Pro 2 both include an attractive new front panel design and built-in power supply. The latest software update for our HyperDeck Studio range has added support for additional a number of new file formats, including Apple ProRes 422, ProRes 422 (LT) and ProRes (Proxy).
Also on the stand are three new Ultra HD 4K MiniConverters, designed to ease the transition into Ultra HD workflows. The UltraStudio 4K with Thunderbolt 2 and DeckLink 4K Extreme will also be present and offer users simultaneous capture and playback. The new design features almost zero latency, depending on the host computer for the highest performance direct GPU support.
