UltraStudio for Thunderbolt

UltraStudio supports a massive range of video formats and resolutions combined with all types of video and audio connections, so you get the ultimate flexibility and quality. Work with all of the world's most popular audio and video editing software with ease. UltraStudio captures from cameras, decks and live feeds directly into editing, effects and broadcast design systems. Now with the new UltraStudio 4K you can handle any job your client presents to you, from regular SD and HD work all the way up to Ultra HD 4K feature films!

Non Linear Editing

UltraStudio works with the world's most popular editing software and provides the highest quality connections so you can handle any video format your clients demand. Connect 6G-SDI to UltraStudio 4K for Ultra HD 4K, 4:4:4, 1080p60 HD or stereoscopic 3D capture and playback all from within the editing software itself. If your editing software does not support direct capture from hardware capture cards, then you can use the included Media Express software to capture a wide range of compressed and uncompressed video formats and file types in the format your edit software demands. UltraStudio is also perfect for monitoring while you edit, and you can connect client monitors to the UltraStudio video output so they can watch your work on big screen televisions! UltraStudio supports Final Cut Pro X, Avid Media Composer, DaVinci Resolve and Premiere Pro CC, plus with its WDM driver, a massive range of affordable Windows editing software as well!

On Set Acquisition

Cinema quality video acquisition has never been simpler! When working on set with DaVinci Resolve, now you can use the new Resolve Live feature to grade live from your video camera. Resolve Live allows you to add nodes and correctors, and then store those grades to link up with the camera media later. No matter what quality camera you use, there is an UltraStudio model with the connections to plug in directly and then grade live! You can also use UltraStudio to capture from cameras into specific, rare or custom file formats and codecs so you can use live capture to prepare media in real time for your post production workflow. UltraStudio works with any format and new file formats and codecs can be added as third party plug-ins.

Visual Effects and Graphics

UltraStudio 4K is perfect for VFX work because you can work in full color resolution RGB 4:4:4, which features full color bandwidth without any sub sampling so you get the sharpest and most seamless keys possible. Because UltraStudio captures and plays back DPX, DVI and QuickTime files, you can use your favorite VFX software such as Fusion, After Effects CC, Photoshop CC and more! UltraStudio includes a custom Photoshop CC plug-in allowing you to grab frames from the video input and output still frames from within Photoshop CC to the video output, even in Ultra HD 4K on the UltraStudio 4K model! When working with Photoshop CC and After Effects CC, UltraStudio uses RGB colorspace so you can't get illegal 100% RGB video levels, eliminating surprises when graphics are output to tape or presented to live production switchers! UltraStudio 4K takes advantage of the RGB colorspace to allow fill and key output for external keying of graphics and animation.

All UltraStudio drivers work with the world's best audio post production solutions such as ProTools, Steinberg Nuendo and Cubase.
