DeckLink 8K Pro is an advanced 8 lane PCI Express capture and playback card designed for the next generation of high resolution 8K workflows. Featuring four 12G-SDI connections, DeckLink 8K Pro supports all SD, HD, Ultra HD, 4K, 8K and 8K DCI frame sizes. DeckLink 8K Pro works in 8 and 10‑bit YUV 4:2:2 as well as 10 and 12‑bit RGB 4:4:4 with full Rec. 2020 support, giving you deep color for true digital cinema quality images! In addition, you can work at up to 60 frames per second up to 8K, as well as up to 64 channels of audio. The connections are also bi-directional, so they can be used to capture or playback quad link 8K. Or, you can use them to capture a single or a dual link SDI source while simultaneously playing back another single or dual link SDI source!
This software update improves audio capture performance on DeckLink Duo 2 and DeckLink Quad 2, as well as improves 3D capture on DeckLink 8K Pro. This update also provides more reliable quad link SDI output, and consistent audio waveform displays in Adobe Premiere Pro CC for all DeckLink models.
