Combing four independent SDI capture and playback cards in one, the Blackmagic Design DeckLink Quad features four SDI inputs and four SDI outputs that can be independently switched between SD and HD video formats. It also provides a common black burst/tri-sync input for all four channels, and features a built in watchdog timer under API control with bypass relays for a robust broadcast solution that automatically switches to bypass if power is lost, or software crashes. The DeckLink Quad appears as four independent SDI cards to the computer, but uses only a single PCIe slot.

Enabling 8/10-bit 4:2:2 recording and playback, the DeckLink Quad is ideal for use in live broadcast and post production works by avoiding any generational or compression loss. The card is compatible with Mac OS X, Windows 7/8, and Linux computers, and includes a media express application for capturing, organizing, and managing your media, making it a good companion to applications that applications that don't capture video on their own.
