The HDX-SDI SDI, HDMI Analog Video Interface for Laptops from MOTU is a professional video capture and monitoring solution for your Mac computer with support for uncompressed HD and SD, Apple ProRes, and many other popular workflows. The solution uses an ExpressCard slot to turn your laptop computer into a powerful HD/SD video production workstation equipped with multiple I/O options. The unit features Mac and PC drivers, both 32 and 64 bit, and is compatible with Final Cut and Media Composer on the Mac and with Premiere on a PC.

Connect to any source from SD camcorders to today's latest professional HD cameras, then log and capture HD or SD clips directly into your video editing software. It supports capture of uncompressed video via HD-SDI or HDMI with 4:2:2 10-bit color depth and full-raster 1920 x 1080 HD resolution. It is also compatible with many cameras ability to feed uncompressed SDI, HDMI, or component output directly from the camera's optics and imager before compression for pristine picture quality during capture.

If you prefer to edit more conveniently at a lower data rate, use Apple ProRes, ProRes HQ, or the codec of your choice in Apple Final Cut Pro or Adobe Premiere Pro. Because this solution delivers 10-bit uncompressed video to the computer, you are not limited to a particular codec and are free to use the host-based workflow of your choice, including many popular file-based formats now supported by today's industry-standard video editing software. Using a codec directly supported by your editing software allows you to eliminate unnecessary extra stages of compression and decompression for maximum CPU efficiency and smooth editing.

Monitor your timeline with pixel-for-pixel accuracy on a large plasma screen via digital HDMI output with color-corrected balance on an LCD reference monitor via HD-SDI output or with the real-world look of a consumer display via analog HD or SD component, composite, or S-video output. Capture and monitor up to 16 channels of audio (analog, AES/EBU, or embedded) at sample rates up to 96KHz. Employ Sony 9-pin machine control for advanced Batch Capture and Edit to Tape operations. You can also keep everything frame-accurate using time code and video reference.
