Flexible Format Support

The card offers flexible format and system support, letting you work with compressed video formats such as ProRes and DNxHD, as well as 12-bit 4:4:4 uncompressed video. When working with uncompressed video, all images are pixel-for-pixel identical to the source without any generational loss. This lets you get sharper keying with green screens, cleaner compositions, superior color correction, and more. Support for common file formats provides ready-to-edit files for use in popular editing, effects, and design software applications. DeckLink Studio 4K is compatible with Mac, Windows, and Linux based workstations.

Can I use this to output dual SDI signals from ...

Can I use this to output dual SDI signals from resolve to monitor SDR and HDR at the same time?
Asked by: Sean
Yes, as part of the DolbyVision workflow. Select the option "Use dual outputs for SDI". Also, you have to set the card connections in precisely this way: "SDI 1 & 2 In; SDI 3 & 4 Out". There are other ways to get two (or more) outputs from the card, but that's the only valid setup for dual outputs. You can output either UHD or HD, but whichever you chose, that will be the resolution of both outputs.

Can card take two SDI source at the same time

Can card take two SDI source at the same time
Asked by: George
The answer is yes. If you want a better answer, ask a better question. What do you want to feed the two inputs to? Does that app support the use you plan? You might be surprised to learn that not all apps and not all cards support all the use cases you might imagine.
