Creativity is imperative in the design industry, especially in digital media, but as it is in the movie industry, the tools to bring those ideas on screen often are unattainable for the freelancing professional. Blackmagic made this a thing of the past with introducing the Ultrastudio Pro, the world’s first broadcast quality SD/HD capture and playback solution for USB 3.0. This sleek device crams top-notch broadcast technology into a streamlined body made of brushed aluminum. While the face displays an audio level meter for the precise audio calibration, the backside provides numerous video and audio connections including 3 Gb/s SDI, HDMI, genlock/tri-sync, R S422 deck control, 2 channels of AES/EBU digital audio in and out and many more. On the run for professional gear, then take into account that there simply doesn’t exist a better HD video quality as the uncompressed 10 bit SD/HD-SDI video the UltraStudio Pro delivers.
