Blackmagic Design HyperDeck Studio 4K Pro
The Blackmagic Design HyperDeck Studio 4K Pro is an updated 1 RU file-based deck that features the same functionality and control of professional tape decks in a digital design. This model updates the previous HyperDeck Studio models with several features including 12G-SDI support, two added SD card slots, USB-C recording output, timecode input and output, Ref input and output, a redesigned jog/shuttle wheel, 10G Ethernet, and a speaker on the front.
The Studio 4K Pro records video with 10-bit 4:2:2 color using either ProRes or DNxHD codecs, as well as the H.264 and H.265 compression formats. With two SSD slots and two SD card slots, you can record almost endlessly as one SSD becomes full, recording automatically continues on to the other, and the SD card slots are also hot-swappable. The Studio 4K Pro features one 12G-SDI input, two 12G-SDI outputs, a loop-through 12G-SDI output, a dedicated SDI monitor output, and there’s also one HDMI input and one HDMI output that can all output up to DCI 4K. The 4K Pro can even play ProRes 4444 files in true UHD for fill and key outputs. The ports autodetect the signal and will adjust to the SD, HD, 6G-SDI, or 12G-SDI format input. The 3-pin XLR timecode input and output allow you to sync timecode with other devices, and it also allows you to daisy-chain with other devices to create a timecode sync chain.
The Studio 4K Pro is a 1 RU rack-mountable unit, with built-in rack mount ears. It features illuminated front panel button control and a heavy jog/shuttle wheel for analog scrubbing. RS-422 control is supported for external control using the Ref input and output ports. The USB-C port allows you to record to external disks, and you can also use it to plug into a computer to use as a source for a web stream. An integrated LCD on the front panel allows you to monitor the video and display timecode and transport information.
Professional Broadcast Deck
The new HyperDeck Studio recorders have been totally redesigned with dozens of new features. The advanced models have new broadcast-style front panel controls and more connections on the rear panel. The LCD screen supports both light and dark modes, plus the transport control buttons are stronger with a firm professional feel. The Pro models feature a machined metal search dial with increased mass and a soft rubber surface that feels nice to the touch. Plus the search dial features an active clutch, just like a traditional broadcast dec. With dual media slots, you can change cards without interrupting recording. The advanced models even include a front headphone connection and speaker.
