Blackmagic Design Announces DeckLink Mini Monitor and DeckLink Mini Recorder

 

Blackmagic Design today announced DeckLink Mini Monitor and DeckLink Mini Recorder, two new capture and playback solutions featuring 3 Gb/s SDI and HDMI connections plus high speed PCIe technology.

Blackmagic Design DeckLink Mini Monitor and DeckLink Mini Recorder will be demonstrated on the Blackmagic Design NAB 2013 booth at #SL218.

DeckLink Mini Monitor and DeckLink Mini Recorder are extremely compact PCIe cards that include PCIe shields for both regular PCIe slots and low profile slots commonly found on servers. DeckLink Mini Monitor and DeckLink Mini Recorder support all common SD/HD formats for incredible quality video and will be available for only US$145.

DeckLink Mini Monitor and DeckLink Mini Recorder are two separate products, one for recording SDI and HDMI video and the other model for playing back SDI or HDMI video.

The DeckLink Mini Monitor and DeckLink Mini Recorder feature extremely tiny designs that are perfect for tasks that do not require both capture and playback in a single device. Their lower cost means the customer can choose to add recording or playback when needed. A good example is when monitoring using NLE software such as Apple Final Cut Pro X, Adobe® Premiere® Pro or Avid Media Composer when a customer just needs monitoring when editing, the DeckLink Mini Monitor would be the perfect choice. A customer who only needs simple recording for recording files from professional video sources can choose the DeckLink Mini Recorder for great quality at the lowest possible price.

DeckLink Mini Monitor and DeckLink Mini Recorder feature advanced high quality video technology allowing customers to install uncompressed and compressed capture and playback tasks at the highest 10 bit SD/HD quality wherever they need it.

With fast PCI Express transfer speeds, DeckLink Mini Monitor and DeckLink Mini Recorder can capture from decks, cameras and live video sources, and output to monitors, projectors, media servers and more. This is perfect for editing, compositing, graphics production and unlimited broadcast and post production situations where the highest quality video and true versatility are demanded.

DeckLink Mini Monitor and DeckLink Mini Recorder are fully compatible with Final Cut Pro X, Adobe Premiere Pro, Avid Media Composer 6, Blackmagic DaVinci Resolve, Adobe® After Effects® CS6, Adobe® Photoshop® and more. Also included is Blackmagic Design’s Media Express software.

“DeckLink Mini Monitor and DeckLink Mini Recorder are perfect for a wide range of tasks because they are very low cost, but they are also extremely small, so they even fit into the low profile slots commonly found on server class computers,” said Grant Petty, CEO, Blackmagic Design. “This means these exciting new models will allow systems integrators to build custom solutions for broadcast, or they can be used by customers for building systems that are perfect for a specific task such as editing with built in monitoring!”
