UltraStudio for Thunderbolt™

Connect UltraStudio to professional equipment with virtually any type of video and audio connection available, as well as professional RS-422 deck control, external reference inputs and more! UltraStudio Thunderbolt models feature advanced SDI video connections, the standard for today's post production and broadcast equipment. Some UltraStudio models also include HDMI, analog component, S-Video and composite connections which means that you can connect to a range of older professional and consumer equipment. Work with the widest range of monitors, switchers, routers and broadcast decks and more.

Connecting to Decks and Monitors

With UltraStudio you can be assured you have every kind of connection, quality, file format and software compatibility you need for any task! Connect virtually any professional or    consumer analog video device or deck. Simply plug into the SDI connections for digital decks such as HDCAM, HD-D5, HDCAM SR and even standard definition Digital Betacam! If you're    connecting to older decks such as Betacam SP, then you can use the component analog connections on the UltraStudio Express and UltraStudio 4K models to plug in direct using the      component analog video connections and balanced analog audio. You even get composite for connecting to old VHS decks!

Connecting to Routers

UltraStudio is perfect for use with routers because they include support for video, multi channel audio, timecode and close caption data all down the single SDI cable. This saves costs on installing multiple routers because a single SDI router can handle all of the signal types. UltraStudio supports built in down conversion so you can send feeds to systems that run separate SD and HD routers. The multi rate SDI connections also support newer router designs such as Blackmagic Design's Videohub range that allows multiple video formats on the same router at the same time.
