          Comments about Blackmagic Design DeckLink Quad:

          I use this card for 4 SDI input with vMix software that offers you the same capabilities of the Matrox VS4 for substantially less money. So far it has performed no problem all 4 SDI inputs simultaneous for live switching and each SDi recording individual video streams all at the same time. I would buy this card again and will if when I build my second system

                      One of few cards that can use all 4 inputs independantly. Ran some tests in a MacPro for use with Wirecast.
                      Works as described, just make sure you buy the BNC to DIN cables as they are not included and are nearly impossible to pickup at your local shop.
                      No installataion quick guide with card, had to go online to determine best PCIe slot.
