Blackmagic Design BDLKULSR4K2 UltraStudio 4K Thunderbolt 2

Regular price $995.00

The Blackmagic Design UltraStudio 4K Thunderbolt 2 is an external 1RU/table-top I/O device with two 20Gb/s Thunderbolt ports. It captures DCI 4K 4:2:2 or UHD 4K YUV 4:2:2 by single-link 6G-SDI up to 30p and by dual-link 6G-SDI from 50p to 60p; 1080p RGB 4:4:4 by single-link 3G-SDI; 1080p 4:2:2 by single-link HD-SDI; 1080p 4:4:4 by dual-link HD-SDI; and DCI/UHD 4K 4:2:2 by HDMI. 4K can be input/output compressed and uncompressed. The SDI inputs also support dual-channel 2D/3D stereoscopic workflows. UltraStudio 4K is capable of hardware-based HD down/up/cross conversion.

The other connections are Component and Composite on BNC, 2-channel analog audio on XLR, 2-channel AES/EBU audio on BNC, timecode input and output on XLR, Blackburst and Tri-Sync, and RS-422 deck control. A color LCD and six quick-access video and audio input buttons are built in on the front panel.

4K Compressed or Uncompressed
UltraStudio 4K Thunderbolt 2 supports popular compressed video formats such as ProRes and DNxHD as well as 10-bit uncompressed video. When working with uncompressed video all captured images are a perfect pixel-for-pixel clone of the source without any quality loss. Get the sharpest keying with green screens, cleanest compositions, superior color correction, and more.

Work in 10-Bit 4:4:4
UltraStudio 4K Thunderbolt 2 features built-in 6G-SDI connections that operate at four times the speed of regular HD-SDI, meaning you can capture Ultra HD and 4K with only one BNC cable instead of four. This high bandwidth connection is perfect for full color resolution 4:4:4 video, which is great for video effects and high frame rate video up to 1080p60. UltraStudio 4K Thunderbolt 2 also supports dual stream 3D with capture and playback of two independent channels.
