It features 12G-SDI and HDMI inputs and outputs, two CFast media slots for recording, and allows you to record your video stream to an optional disk via USB Type-C.

If you want to fit streaming into your legacy production rack, the HyperDeck can be controlled via RS-422 as traditional broadcast decks. The unit also features a 3G-SDI monitor output, component analog audio and video inputs, 3-pin XLR inputs and outputs, timecode I/O, and reference I/O.

Is there any upscaling control let's say over the analog input to the final H.265 recorded file resolution? Also, can the external USB-C disk recording work independently and regardless of having any CFast media cards in? Thanks
Asked by: Carlos
There is no scaling/conversion in the Blackmagic Design HyperDeck Extreme 4K HDR. You are able to record to a usb-c drive without using Cfast cards.

does this work in a Multicam setup?

does this work in a Multicam setup?
Asked by: johnny
This has one HDMI input and one SDI input. If you have a multicam setup put all your cameras to a video switcher and send that program out into ether the HDMI or the SDI input on the HyperDeck Extreme 4K HDR. It will record the video and camera switch.
