HyperDeck Shuttle HD

The advanced operating system designed for film and television!

HyperDeck Shuttle features the same advanced Blackmagic OS software as used on Blackmagic Design's digital film cameras, so you get an advanced operating system that’s designed for the tough technical requirements of the film and television industry. All settings can be accessed with a single tap on the front panel menu button, so you can adjust all settings for recording, monitoring, audio, disks and setup. Each HyperDeck feature runs as a self contained app running on top of Blackmagic OS, so all functions feel smooth without feeling stalled or delayed, plus you get exceptional overall stability. Best of all, Blackmagic OS is upgradable so you can get more features in the future!

Disk Management

Disk Management

When you insert an SD card or a USB-C disk, Blackmagic OS will pre check the media to ensure it’s ok for recording. The LED will illuminate green while it’s checking the media. When recording the LED will be red, and green when playing. You can also see the current record disk in the media menu.

Network Services

Network Services

With HyperDeck Shuttle, you can access files remotely via a network using file transfer protocol, or "FTP". This means that you don’t have to remove media cards to transfer files to and from the HyperDeck, so it’s perfect for remote use. The incredible network performance means files copy fast!

System Menus System Menus

System Menus



The record menu has the main video settings for HyperDeck including input selection and codec choice. Codecs include ProRes, DNx and H.264 plus teleprompter setting. This menu also has options for triggering recording from the HDMI video input status.



The monitoring menu is where the specific settings are located for the built in teleprompter. You can adjust font scaling, the margins for the text rendering and even flip the text, depending on how the prompter is mounted on your camera.



The audio menu has settings for the number of audio channels to record, including options for broadcast standard PCM or internet streaming standard AAC. HDMI supports recording of up to 8 channels of audio.



The storage menu lets you see the next disk used for recording. That's important because HyperDeck Shuttle has an SD/UHS-II media slot plus an external USB-C disk port. Plus you can also format disks.



The setup menu lets you totally customize your HyperDeck. You can use this menu to change languages, set date and time, change between light and dark mode, update network settings, select timecode source, and change menu overlay position and opacity.

Teleprompter Font Size

This menu sets the font size on the prompter. You can write your script at a regular font size, such as 12 point, and then it scales up by this setting for display. This ensures the type is easy to read on camera, without scaling it up manually.

Teleprompter Line Spacing Teleprompter Line Spacing

Teleprompter Line Spacing

This setting allows you to increase the space between lines on the prompter, so it can help make the text easier to read. This setting is often called leading by designers, and it allows you to open up the text on the prompter so it's not too dense.

Teleprompter Side Margin Teleprompter Side Margin

Teleprompter Side Margin

Some monitors have overscan, or the way the mirror on the camera is designed can cause some areas to be cut off. This setting will increase margin on the sides of the monitor. A larger margin groups the text tighter at the center of the display.

Teleprompter Flip Horizontally Teleprompter Flip Horizontally

Teleprompter Flip Horizontally

This setting will flip the whole prompter text horizontally on the monitor. On some cameras the prompter monitor cannot be mounted on the camera in the correct way, so this setting allows you to flip the text, compensating for this limitation.

Teleprompter Flip Vertically

This setting will flip the whole prompter text vertically on the monitor. On some cameras the prompter monitor cannot be mounted on the camera in the correct way, so this setting allows you to flip the text, compensating for this limitation.

The primary DNS setting is a network setting and is used when the HyperDeck needs to translate a human-readable hostname into an IP address. This setting allows the HyperDeck to find and communicate with a DNS server to lookup the hostname.

Secondary DNS Secondary DNS

The secondary DNS setting is as an alternative DNS server that the HyperDeck can use when translating a human-readable hostname into an IP address. This setting allows the HyperDeck to find and communicate with a DNS server to lookup the hostname.

Timecode Preference Timecode Preference

Timecode Preference

The timecode preference lets you use either drop frame or non-drop frame timecode. When set to drop frame, the LCD timecode will change to use semicolons. Drop frame timecode is used for correct time of day timecode when using 59.94 fps standards.

Timecode Preset Timecode Preset

This menu lets you manually enter the timecode to use for recording. This means you can preset the timecode generator to a specific time before recording starts. Most broadcasters start recordings at 1 hour timecode, but you can use any time!

Timecode Output Timecode Output

Timecode Output

The timecode output menu will change how the HyperDeck Shuttle embeds timecode into the HDMI video output. Normally you get a constant timecode out for the whole playback, however changing this menu lets you use the timecode in each playback clip.
