Blackmagic Design HyperDeck Studio 4K Pro

For extreme power, the HyperDeck Studio 4K Pro has all the features of the HD models, combined with incredible processing for working in Ultra HD. This model’s SDI has been upgraded to full 12G-SDI with a loop 12G-SDI output. The two SDI outputs are both 12G-SDI so you can play ProRes 4444 files for true Ultra HD fill and key out. The HDMI connections and the ProRes and DNx file formats all switch between SD, HD, and Ultra HD television standards. Like the other models, H.264 is included for SD and HD, but then switches to H.265 when recording in Ultra HD. Even the networking has been upgraded to 10G Ethernet for incredible speed! You also get 2 redundant AC power supplies!

Mastering Recorder

This model can record to H.264, ProRes, and DNx files, so are perfect for recording broadcast masters! You can even use PCM or AAC audio, plus the 4K model adds H.265 when recording to Ultra HD files. You get everything you need to send shows to broadcasters and for uploading to YouTube.

ISO Recording

This model features timecode and reference generators, with outputs to loop to other HyperDecks. This means you can build a rack of HyperDeck Studios for ISO camera recording, allowing multi-cam editing after live events! You can even sync cameras to the SDI output and the SDI input has frame sync!

Digital Signage

HyperDeck Studio is perfect for digital signage as it has an HDMI output for connecting to large screen TVs and projectors. The built-in sync generator lets you combine multiple HyperDecks for large multiscreen video walls. There's even FTP for file upload and a protocol for remote control!

Broadcast Archive

HyperDeck Studio supports all SD and HD standards so it’s ideal for archiving old television shows from broadcast decks such as Digital Betacam, Betacam SP, U-matic, and VHS. You can even record directly to H.264 to maximize storage. For analog decks, just add a Mini Converter Analog to SDI!

Bright Color LCD Status Display

HyperDeck Studio features traditional deck-style transport controls, including a search dial for jog, shuttle, and scroll. The compact LCD shows timecode and transport information, plus a full-color thumbnail preview of the current clip in record or playback. It also displays information about each card’s recording status, along with video format, frame rate information and audio levels, all on the same display! The LCD includes monitoring for video, plus audio level meters, selectable between technically accurate VU or PPM ballistics.

Traditional Broadcast Deck Controls

HyperDeck Studio includes a traditional broadcast-style control panel that's very fast to use. Simply press the record button and you instantly start recording the video input to a file! You can also change the record file format from the menu. There are transport control buttons for playback, rewind, fast forward, previous clip, next clip and more. This Pro model has a machined metal search dial that supports shuttle, jog and scroll so you can find clips fast. Any button pressed on the front panel is sent to the rear RS-422 remote output for looping control to multiple HyperDecks. It also includes a front panel speaker and headphone socket for live audio monitoring.

Dual Media Slots

The HyperDeck Studio features dual media slots for non-stop recording. When the recording card becomes full, the recording automatically continues onto the next card. That’s perfect when recording long live events because you can hot-swap a full card for an empty card while recording continues in the other slot! Each slot has a status indicator to show which card is being used, either red for record or green for playback.

Record to External USB-C Media Disks

If recording to other types of media is required, the USB-C expansion port lets you plug in an external flash disk for recording. USB-C flash disks have unlimited capacity because they can be physically larger than an SD card or SSD.

Popular ProRes, DNx, H.264 and H.265 Files

The 4K model adds H.265 when recording in Ultra HD. That means you get tight 60:1 to 285:1 compression ratios for very small files at full broadcast quality. Plus you can choose uncompressed PCM audio, or even AAC audio when uploading files to YouTube. It also supports both ExFAT and HFS+ disk formats and long-duration single file recordings.

USB Webcam Output for Video Software

For compatibility with a wide range of computer software, HyperDeck Studio features webcam support using the USB connection. If you're not recording to an external USB disk, you can plug the HyperDeck USB connection directly into a computer to get live video into any video software. HyperDeck Studio's USB webcam feature works with any video software including Zoom, Microsoft Teams and Skype, or get live streaming with Open Broadcaster, XSplit Broadcaster and more!

Includes Professional Multi-Channel SDI Audio

HyperDeck Studio includes professional multi-channel SDI audio for recording up to 16 channels. When recording from the SDI input, you can select in the menu to record 2, 4, 8 or 16 channels of audio in real time. There's extra space on the SDI monitoring status overlay, which allows the audio meter display to show the number of channels you have enabled all at the same time, and the audio meters will show 2, 4, 8 or 16 channels simultaneously. HyperDeck Studio is more than just a video recorder, as it also has fantastic sound!

Incredibly Fast Network File Transfers

The HyperDeck allows media files to be uploaded remotely, using simple FTP client software. With 10G Ethernet built into the HyperDeck Studio 4K Pro model, file transfers are so fast, they are faster than the SD card or SSD media disks!
