The new standard for Ultra HD delivery
The Blackmagic Duplicator 4K encodes using H.265, the new standard for Ultra HD delivery! You get a built in realtime H.265 hardware encoder that gives you incredible looking Ultra HD video, even at high frame rates up to 2160p60. The H.265 video looks better than H.264, the files are small, and the data rates are low so you can play your content back from standard SD card media! You can even play back Ultra HD 2160p60, which is 4 times the size of regular HD and twice the frame rate! Now you can deliver dramatically better looking video to your customers using small and affordable SD cards!
The Blackmagic Duplicator 4K features a realtime H.265 encoder and 25 SD card recorders that are miniaturized into a single rack unit design! The machined metal design is durable, lightweight and small enough to take anywhere. That means you can duplicate content right where you’re recording and selling it! You get an attractive LCD display for status, professional broadcast connections such as 12G-SDI with loop through and RS-422 deck control so you can connect multiple units together and record more cards at the same time.
Work Solo – Automatically trigger recording from your camera
Working with multiple cameras and a live production switcher is very fast and creative, however many events only require a single camera and operator. If you’re working alone, you can still produce multiple copies and sell content faster than ever before! Simply plug the SDI output from your camera into the duplicator, start shooting and the Blackmagic Duplicator 4K will automatically start encoding and making copies. The Blackmagic Duplicator 4K recognizes the SDI start/stop commands from the camera so it automatically starts and stops recording whenever you start and stop the camera!
Create Unlimited Copies – Record hundreds of copies in real time
For larger events, you can connect multiple Blackmagic Duplicator 4Ks together and record an unlimited number of copies, all at the same time! Simply loop the RS-422 deck control and SDI video to multiple duplicators, then start recording on the first one. When you push a button on the front panel of the first unit, it sends the command out via the RS-422 remote and into all of the connected units so they all start recording simultaneously! You can set up a road case with enough duplicators to handle massive events and because the cards are re-usable, you never have to worry about wasting media because you can simply record over them again later!
