Each Blackmagic Duplicator 4K can make 25 copies at a time. If you’re working on larger events and need to make more copies, you can stack duplicators together and connect them with RS‑422 and SDI loop through to make a virtually unlimited number of copies. If you need to deliver in multiple formats, you can add a Teranex Express between duplicators to convert into virtually any other format. That lets you make cards with regular HD in one duplicator and Ultra HD in another!
The front panel of the Blackmagic Duplicator 4K is designed to make duplicating and recording content as easy as possible. There are 6 large, illuminated buttons for record, stop, lock, append, menu and remote. The lock button prevents you from accidentally interrupting recording during an event, and the append button automatically merges incoming video into a single file, even if the camera starts and stops. The menu button lets you use the high resolution built in LCD to adjust other settings, and the remote button puts the duplicator into slave mode so it can be controlled remotely.
The Blackmagic Duplicator 4K features 25 SD card recorders miniaturized into a single rack unit! The slots are designed to hold standard, common SD cards that are available anywhere. Each recorder features an LED indicator light for monitoring the status of the card. All the cards can be simultaneously formatted and, when they’re ready, the LEDs turn green. They also act as status indicators, lighting red during recording and flashing in different colors if cards are getting full, or to warn you of a problem.
The built in LCD screen on the front panel shows you a full color preview of the live video. The screen can show overlays with critical clip metadata such as audio levels, recording status and resolution. You can also use the LCD screen to navigate additional settings such as compression data rate, total number of mounted cards, SDI start/stop triggers and more, all on the same display!
The Blackmagic Duplicator 4K features an advanced, multi rate 12G-SDI connection that automatically switches speed so you can record allSD, HD and Ultra HD formats up to 2160p60. There’s also an SDI loop through for connecting to additional duplicators so you can record on to more cards. Easily control multiple units simultaneously by looping RS‑422 deck control so when you startor stop recording on one, the others follow. You also get USB andethernet ports, along with an optical fiber socket for adding optional fiber when you’re in a large venue set up far away from the camera or switcher!
Working in large arenas or broadcast studios can force you to place the Blackmagic Duplicator 4K further away from the camera or switcher than regular SDI connections can handle. For events that take place in conference halls or music venues, youmay want to put the duplicator close to the merchandising stands so you can hand off cards quickly for sale. Using 12G over optical fiber solves the distance problems associated with remote set up. Optical fiber letsyou place the duplicator up to20 miles away from yourcamera or switcher without any loss of quality! Each Blackmagic Duplicator 4K includes an optical fiber socket allowing you to plug in an optical fiber SFP module to upgrade it whenever your production demands!
