Blackmagic Design UltraStudio Mini Recorder, Ultra small pocket sized Thunderbolt powered recording from SDI and HDMI,
Capturing very high quality video direct onto a Thunderbolt-based computer system has never been as easy as this. No power supply needed, no speed issues. The Blackmagic UltraStudio Mini Recorder captures in your preferred codec and supports Avid Media Composer, Final Cut Pro or Premiere Pro editing programs. If your camcorder is restricted to a 24Mb/s, 35Mb/s or 8-bit 50Mb/s ceiling, the Mini Recorder can record at higher bitrates – including uncompressed – for the best quality pictures and chromakey results.
For recording direct to a computer for fast turnaround editing, this is a great and inexpensive solution.
