If you've ever wanted to monitor in both HD and SD while you work,
then you'll love the built in high quality down converter on the
DeckLink Studio model that's always active on the SD-SDI, S-Video and
composite video output connections. This lets you use the main
SD/HD-SDI output for HD, while simultaneously using the SD-SDI, S-Video
and composite outputs for standard definition. When working in HD the
built in down converter lets all video outputs remain active in both
capture and playback mode, and in all HD video formats! You can
instantly select between letterbox, anamorphic 16:9 and center cut 4:3
down conversion styles.
The DeckLink Optical Fiber model is the world's first capture card
to include built in optical fiber SDI connections. Optical fiber easily
handles long distances, is low cost, and optical fiber cables last
virtually forever because you can keep plugging them into faster
equipment in the future, and the same cables will go much faster.
Optical fiber cables can be installed by your local electrician, and
the cables can be purchased from your local electrical wholesaler.
That's because optical fiber is used all the time in computer
networking, so it's low cost and commonly available! Now you can build
a native optical fiber facility!
DeckLink Studio includes enhanced analog connections to make it
easy to connect to a wider range of analog broadcast equipment. You can
simultaneously connect to analog component, S-Video and composite
equipment, because DeckLink Studio has independent connections for
each. All outputs are always active and will output via the built in
down converter when you're working in HD. DeckLink Studio is the
perfect capture card for working with decks such as Betacam SP, as it
includes 4 channels of balanced analog audio, so you can capture and
playback all 4 channels of Betacam SP audio at the same time. DeckLink
Studio has more analog connections than SD only capture cards and costs
hundreds of dollars less!
