With DeckLink HD Studio, customers can capture high quality, uncompressed video direct from the HDMI connection on cameras, decks, and video cameras.

DeckLink HD Studio allows capture from HDMI cameras or decks, as well as analog decks and set top boxes. HDMI playback and analog playback allows connection to a wide range of video monitors, big screen televisions and video projectors for incredible quality client monitoring. DeckLink HD Studio instantly switches between HD and SD so you can work with almost any deck, camera or monitor.

DeckLink HD Studio also features the same uncompressed and compressed file formats used by all DeckLink cards, allowing large storage area network based systems to use shared video files for full compatibility.
