Blackmagic Design DeckLink Quad 2

The Blackmagic Design DeckLink Quad 2 is an eight channel configurable PCIe for video capture and playback up to 1080p60.


DeckLink lets you work with compressed video formats including ProRes and DNxHD as well as 10-bit uncompressed video. When working with uncompressed, all images are a mathematically perfect pixel-for-pixel clone of the source, without any generational loss, so you have the confidence you’re working at the absolute highest quality possible.

Get sharper keying with green screens, cleaner compositions, superior colour correction and more! Should you need to use compression, support for industry leading file formats ensures that you can maintain the highest quality throughout post production.
