HyperDeck Studio Pro disk recorder lets you record the highest quality uncompressed and compressed ProRes and DNxHD video formats using fast 2.5" SSDs. 

Designed with familiar VTR controls, HyperDeck Studio Pro includes innovative features that extend beyond the capabilities of traditional decks. Dual SSD slots let you record continuously, when one disk is full recording automatically continues on the next SSD. You can mount an SSD recording using HyperDeck Studio Pro on to any computer to access your files, so you don't need multiple decks to work with your media! 

HyperDeck Studio Pro records 4:2:2 SD/HD, 4:4:4 RGB and 2K, all in full uncompressed quality. Use ProRes or DNxHD compression for high quality HD video in file sizes that provide 5 times longer recording. HyperDeck Studio Pro features 3Gb/s SDI, HDMI and analogue component connections, plus professional XLR audio and built-in Thunderbolt connectivity. It includes a built-in power supply for convenience and the 1 rack unit size fits easily into any studio or portable rack!

Replace Ageing Decks

HyperDeck Studio Pro is a fantastic modern replacement for ageing broadcast decks. You get the same functionality and control of a professional deck with the advantage of recording directly to uncompressed or industry standard ProRes and DNxHD video formats. Connect cameras, switchers or any other video feed to HyperDeck Studio Pro and create files that are perfect for every production and post production workflow! With a slim 1 rack unit design, HyperDeck Studio Pro is considerably smaller than a traditional VTRs and fits easily into any equipment rack, OB vehicle or flyway kit.
HyperDeck Studio Pro features 4 channels of 3 Gb/s SDI, HDMI and analogue connections with standard XLR connectors for audio and timecode and a built-in Thunderbolt port. Supports SD/HD, RGB 4:4:4 and 2K, plus full 4K playback from a single SSD using Apple ProRes.

Broadcast Video Quality

HyperDeck Studio Pro records SD/HD 10-bit 4:2:2 uncompressed video for perfect broadcast quality. With uncompressed video you can create the sharpest VFX plates for match moving, compositing and more. You get deep dynamic colour range for colour correction and perfect keying without jagged edges. You can also use industry standard compressed video formats that maintain incredible HD quality at reduced files sizes. With HyperDeck Studio Pro you can now push quality to new heights, with additional support for uncompressed RGB 4:4:4 and 2K, plus 4K playback using Apple ProRes.

Industry Standard Formats

Create files that are perfect for any broadcast and post production workflow! HyperDeck Studio Pro's uncompressed video files are recorded in QuickTime format to provide universal compatibility with leading video software. Both HyperDeck Studio models also support Apple ProRes and Avid DNxHD industry standard file compression so you can record directly to your preferred video format. DNxHD and ProRes provide 5 times longer recording than uncompressed HD video, while maintaining 10-bit colour and full frame 1920 x 1080 sampling.

Unparalleled File Compatibility

HyperDeck Studio records universally compatible QuickTime files in 10-bit uncompressed or compressed DNxHD and ProRes formats so they can be used with all popular software packages, such as Final Cut Pro X, Adobe Premiere Pro CS6, After Effects CS6, Avid Media Composer 6, DaVinci Resolve and more. Customers will always be free to choose the editing, colour correction and finishing tools that are best for their clients and jobs.
