UltraStudio with Thunderbolt

Get elegant design combined with advanced technology!

UltraStudio for Thunderbolt™

The unique design of the UltraStudio family allows them to be used on a desktop or mounted in racks, all while still being small enough to be ultra portable. The UltraStudio 4K models include an elegant front panel with LCD with video, audio and status information. The compact UltraStudio HD Mini model combines affordability and the innovative design of a Teranex Mini converter, so includes a blank front panel as standard, but at any time you can upgrade it by adding a Teranex Mini Smart Panel! UltraStudio capture and playback solutions for Thunderbolt 3 computers are designed with a family break out box design, so you get a wide range of video and audio connections on industry standard connections!

Innovative Portable Design

Designed for portability, the compact UltraStudio mini models are only 1 rack unit in height and they are less than a rack unit in width so you can array more than a single capture/playback channel in 1 rack unit. The mini models use the same rack mount kit as the Teranex Mini converters and you can even combine different combinations of UltraStudio capture and playback, Teranex Mini converters, an ATEM Television Studio HD switcher or even multiview monitoring! Both UltraStudio 4K models, or the UltraStudio HD Mini model with Teranex Mini Smart Panel installed feature LCD display as well as buttons for quick setting changes. UltraStudio 4K models include a headphone output for audio monitoring and a microphone input with phantom power for plugging in a voice over microphone, all conveniently located right on the front panel!

Advanced Connections

All UltraStudio capture and playback devices have broadcast quality audio and video connections along with regular computer connections that enable advanced workflows. The dual link 3G-SDI connections on UltraStudio HD Mini can be used as fill and key outputs for sending animated broadcast graphics with alpha channel out to ATEM live production switchers. UltraStudio 4K Mini has a USB-C connection so it can be used as a hub for connecting peripherals such as a keyboard to your computer. Plus, it features an SD card slot on the front so you can edit directly from camera media cards. UltraStudio 4K Extreme 3 even has 2 optical fiber cages for connecting over massive distances and a PCIe expansion slot that lets you connect it to a Windows or Linux system via PCIe card.

When you're working fast you need to change settings fast. UltraStudio 4K models feature input selection buttons on the front panel. You can capture SDI video with embedded audio, or you can choose different inputs, such as analog audio, to capture them from separate inputs. The built in LCD lets you see what input is selected and will switch to show you the output during playback. This is vital in broadcast environments where you need to be able to confirm video playback quickly. You can even add push button control and an LCD screen to the front panel of UltraStudio HD Mini by simply installing a Teranex Mini Smart Panel.

Elegant Machined Metal Design

UltraStudio 4K Extreme 3 features an attractive machined metal chassis that is made from aircraft grade aluminum.

It’s perfect for use in edit suites, facility rooms and even in broadcast trucks. The dedicated break out box, rack mount design is large enough to include almost every type of video and audio connection available so it’s ideal for any media that clients might throw at you! Built for the most demanding 24/7 environments, UltraStudio 4K Extreme gives you advanced technology in a unique, incredibly elegant design.
