Desktop Capture and Playback

Blackmagic Design capture and playback products work with some of the world’s best software via the freely available Desktop Video SDK. This makes it incredibly easy to create your own custom solutions for one-off projects or for commercial products you will sell. DeckLink, UltraStudio and Intensity all use drivers, plugins and applications found in Desktop Video software and a lot of the heavy lifting is handled for you. The DeckLink SDK is cross platform, providing control of hardware and interfaces to allow you to easily perform common tasks! Plus, when purchasing in volume for use in your products, you can take advantage of great OEM discounts.
