Blackmagic Design Decklink Quad 2 8-Channel 3G-SDI Capture & Playback Card

The Blackmagic Design Decklink Quad 2 has 8 independent SDI capture and 8 playback channels that allow you to switch direction in SD and HD up to 1080p60. You can work with compressed video formats such as ProRes and DNxHD and uncompressed 10-bit 4:2:2 and 4:4:4 video, perfect for live broadcast and post-production. The included Blackmagic's Media Express software enables you to capture, organise, and manage your media when using applications that do not capture video on their own.

  • 8 bidirectional 12-bit SD/HD/3G-SDI connectors
  • 8-lane PCIe interface compatible with Mac, Windows, and Linux computers
  • Cross-conversion between 720p and 1080p on video capture
  • SD upconversion to 720p or 1080p on video capture
  • HD to SD downconversion on video capture or playback

The Decklink Quad 2 accessory lets you expand your video production possibilities. 

DeckLink Quad 2 features 8 independent SDI capture and playback channels in a single card! Fully compatible with the previous 4 channel model, this new model also allows 4 independent capture and playback channels but now also includes 4 extra channels that developers can use for configuring the card in any combination of up to 8 capture or 8 playback channels. This means DeckLink Quad 2 allows each of the 8 3G-SDI BNC connectors to switch direction between capture or playback in SD and HD up to 1080p60 and as a complete independent channel.
