Built In Hardware Video Encoding

The UltraStudio 4K Extreme models feature a built in multi format hardware encoder that lets you capture to H.265. H.265 delivers amazing quality and is the compression standard for distributing Ultra HD content online. You can also use H.265 compression for SD and HD video giving you smaller files at higher quality than other compression formats. The built-in hardware encoder is designed to be upgradable so you get a future proof solution that can add new formats via software updates as they become available.

The Power of Thunderbolt

Built on revolutionary Thunderbolt™ technology, UltraStudio uses a blazingly fast single cable connection to your computer that has the bandwidth to handle the highest resolution video formats easily! Thunderbolt ensures low latency and highly accurate time synchronization for the highest quality capture and playback. UltraStudio Express and UltraStudio Mini models are powered via the Thunderbolt connection so they are extremely portable. The high performance UltraStudio 4K and UltraStudio 4K Extreme models feature double speed Thunderbolt 2 with loop thru and 6G-SDI or 12G-SDI. UltraStudio 4K Extreme 3 features the incredibly fast, 40Gb/s Thunderbolt 3 connection, making it ideal for demanding 3D stereoscopic workflows, Ultra HD and DCI 4K.

12G SDI Incredible speed for high frame rate Ultra HD

UltraStudio 4K Extreme models feature the latest 12G-SDI technology, making it the world’s most powerful video capture and playback solution! The incredible speed of 12G-SDI means UltraStudio 4K Extreme can support both capture and playback of Ultra HD and 4K 60p over a single BNC cable! Because the 12G-SDI connections are multi rate, you can still connect to all your existing equipment. Only 12G-SDI gives you the compatibility to connect to all your existing SD and HD equipment but also supports the future with all Ultra HD formats up to 2160p60. UltraStudio 4K Extreme even supports dual link 12G-SDI so you can do stereoscopic and simultaneous fill and key all in real time!
