Blackmagic Design Announces New HyperDeck Extreme 4K HDR
Blackmagic Design has debuted HyperDeck Extreme 4K HDR, a new broadcast deck with advanced H.265 4K recording featuring a touch screen user interface with built in scopes and HDR screen.
HyperDeck Extreme features the reliability of HyperDeck combined with new innovations such as space saving H.265 files, optional internal cache, 3D LUTs, and HDR support. With the ability to record up to 4K in H.265, customers get reduced storage costs and amazing image quality, according to the company. The large touch screen ensures a perfect view of their recording as well as control over all deck settings. Customers can then add HyperDeck Extreme Control to transform it into a traditional broadcast deck. This means HyperDeck Extreme is a solid solution for the next generation of broadcast, live production, and digital signage.
HyperDeck Extreme has a touch screen user interface with deck controls as well as a large screen to view their recording. HyperDeck Extreme also includes 2 media slots, 12G-SDI, analog connections for archiving, USB-C external disk recording, plus a front panel speaker and headphone jack. There’s also an optional cache that eliminates dropped frames if their media becomes full or is too slow. Both AC and DC power connections are also included for studio or on location use.
CFast media support allows customers to record to commonly available flash memory cards. The H.265 files are small enough to allow long recordings on standard CFast cards. Plus there are 2 CFast card slots so customers can swap out any full cards even during recording, allowing infinite length recording.
“The new HyperDeck Extreme 4K HDR will offer customers a modern design with traditional broadcast controls that allow them to record native 4K in H.265,” said Grant Petty, Blackmagic Design’s CEO. “There are so many features that this advanced record and playback deck is the perfect solution for the next generation of broadcast, live production, and digital signage!”
HyperDeck Extreme 4K HDR will be available in April 2022 from Blackmagic Design resellers worldwide for $2,995.
