Professional broadcast decks that record and playback using SD cards and SSD media!
HyperDeck Studio lets you record broadcast quality video files directly onto SD cards and SSD media! The new redesigned HyperDeck Studios feature modern design with more codecs and quieter cooling. All models now support recording to H.264, Apple ProRes or DNxHD files with either PCM or AAC audio. Plus the 4K model adds support for H.265 files! When you’ve finished recording, media can be mounted on any computer to access the files using your favorite video software. For ISO recording, there’s even built in timecode and reference generators for syncing multiple units! All of these powerful features make HyperDeck Studio perfect for broadcast, live production or multi screen digital signage!
Elegantly Designed 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 deck! With dual media slots, you can change cards without interrupting recording! The advanced models even include a front headphone connection and speaker!
Perfect for Live Production, Broadcast and Archive
All models 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.
All models feature 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 a frame sync!
HyperDeck Studio is perfect for digital signage as all models have 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!
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, 1″, U-matic and VHS. You can even record direct 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. The combination of familiar VTR style controls with the built in LCD screen makes HyperDeck Studio incredibly fast to use and very easy to learn!
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. The Pro models have 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. The Plus and Pro models also include a front panel speaker and headphone socket for live audio monitoring.
Supports SD Cards, UHS‑II Cards or SSDs
All HyperDeck Studio models support recording to common SD cards and UHS-II cards so you don’t need expensive custom media. However the Pro models also add two SSD slots so you can use two different types of media! SD cards and SSDs are the perfect choice for broadcast media because they are small and very affordable. When using H.264, the files are so incredibly small you get very long recordings even on smaller low cost cards. Plus, you can even record to external USB disks! With H.265, you can record up to 58 hours in 2160p60 Ultra HD or up to 157 hours of H.264 recording in 1080p59.94 on a 1 TB card. That’s over 6 days of recording in HD using a single 1 TB card!
Dual Media Slots For Non‑Stop Recording!
All HyperDeck Studio models feature dual media slots for non stop recording. When the recording card becomes full, 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. Plus all models now feature very long file recordings to a single file for easy file distribution. HyperDeck Studio is easily repairable with each card slot using an individual PCB assembly that can be replaced if it ever becomes worn out from heavy use.
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. Plus, it’s even possible to record to a disk array you’ll use for editing, so you don’t need to waste time copying files before starting post production. Just move the disk over to a computer and instantly start editing! You can even add a Blackmagic MultiDock 10G that has 4 separate SSD media slots, so you can add compatibility with SSD media to the HyperDeck Studio Mini and Plus models. There are also menus for managing external disks on the built in LCD.
Popular ProRes, DNx, H.264 and H.265 Files!
HyperDeck supports the most popular codecs in use today! All models include DNx and ProRes file formats. However all models also include H.264 in quality levels up to full 10 bit 4:2:2 when recording in NTSC, PAL, 720p, 1080p and true 1080i interlaced formats. While 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. All models support both ExFAT and HFS+ disk formats and long duration single file recordings. The Plus and Pro models even support ProRes 4444 allowing fill and key playback!
