          Comments about Blackmagic Design DeckLink Quad:

          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.
