  • 1Description

The U-TAP USB 3.0 Powered SDI Capture Device from AJA is suitable for use in the field, on set, or at a studio where USB connectivity provides a quick and easy way to obtain SDI sources for capture, without the need to install additional software drivers.

U-TAP SDI features USB 3.0 host interface, HD-SDI input, and SDI out (looping output)

    AJA U-TAP-SDI reviews

    U-TAP USB 3.1 Gen 1 Powered SDI Capture Device is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from worked flawlessly I recently had a client that wanted to stream a Celebration of Life event just to a small number of relatives - around the world - and did not want to pay a streaming service to do so. I ordered this device and received it a few days later - just in time for this event. I hooked it up to the HD-SDI output on my camera (with embedded audio) and hooked it up to the clients laptop - worked like a charm. They used Google hangout and already had the link setup and sent out to the relatives. They just had to choose the video camera as one of the available web cams and then go to the audio section and choose the embedded audio (from my web cam) and they were off and running. Worked great, looked great, sounded great. No drivers were needed to be loaded - did not even need to run power to this device (it gets it from the USB3 connection). FYI: I provide professional video production services but do NOT offer streaming services because I do not want to be responsible for something going wrong with a stream. However, with this device, I can provide clients with a very high quality web cam video and audio feed option if they want to take on the streaming on their own - which is pretty straight-forward anyway. We also work with a streaming company that does something similar for clients that don't want to deal with the stream and don't mind paying someone else to do it.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not compatible with important software This guys compatibility list is a joke. I work professionally on set and it's not only not compatible with Assimilate Scratch, the brand they bundle gear with, but neither with LiveGrade, THE live grading standard.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just Works; Simply and Perfectly Connected the SDI output of my Sony PXW-X70 camcorder to the input of the U-TAP and the USB 3 output of the U-TAP to my computer. Everything from AMCap on the simple end to vMix picked up the X70 like it was a webcam. Wow! What a webcam! Worth every dime--both the camcorder and the U-TAP. Classy stuff.
