Editing and Acquisition
DeckLink works with the world's most popular editing software and provides the highest quality connections to handle virtually any video format. Connect dual link 12G-SDI to DeckLink 4K Extreme 12G or the DeckLink 4K Pro for Ultra HD 4K, 4:4:4, 2160p60 or stereoscopic 3D capture and playback within the editing software. If your software does not support direct capture from DeckLink cards then simply use the included Media Express software to capture to a wide range of compressed and uncompressed video formats. DeckLink is also perfect for monitoring, allowing you to connect client monitors to the DeckLink video output to preview work on big screen televisions! DeckLink supports Final Cut Pro, Avid Media Composer, DaVinci Resolve and Premiere Pro CC, plus with its WDM driver, a massive range of Windows editing software as well!
On Set Acquisition
When working on set with DaVinci Resolve, you can use Resolve Live to grade live from your camera. Resolve Live allows you to add nodes and correctors live, then store grades to link up with the camera media later. No matter what quality camera you use, there is a DeckLink card with the connections to plug in direct and then grade live. Use DeckLink cards to capture from cameras into specific, rare or custom file formats, so you can use live capture to prepare media in real time for your post production workflow. DeckLink works with any format and new file formats and codecs can be added as third party plug ins.
Visual Effects and Graphics
DeckLink 4K Extreme is perfect for VFX work to capture in full color resolution RGB 4:4:4 images without any sub sampling, giving the sharpest keys possible. Because DeckLink 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. DeckLink also includes a custom Photoshop CC plug-in allowing you to grab frames off the video input for image editing directly in Photoshop CC, even in Ultra HD! When working with Photoshop CC and After Effects CC, DeckLink uses RGB colorspace eliminating illegal 100% RGB video levels and allowing accurate fill and key output for external keying of graphics and animation.
DeckLink is perfect for audio post production when working on sound tracks of television commercials, episodic television production and feature films. DeckLink cards include multiple channels of analog audio, AES/EBU digital audio and 8 or 16 channels of embedded SDI audio depending on the model. All DeckLink drivers work with the world's best Audio Post Production solutions such as ProTools, Steinberg Nuendo and Cubase.
