The high-performance DeckLink 4K Extreme 12G features the latest advanced video technology including Ultra HD running at a massive 60 frames a second with separate fill and key links, Dual Link multi-rate 12G-SDI, HDMI 4K, 4:4:4, stereoscopic 3D and super fast 8 lane PCIe Gen

DeckLink capture and playback cards are used every day in the production of television commercials, music videos, episodic television programs and Hollywood feature films. With cutting-edge technologies built in, you get the highest quality video and maximum reliability. No other capture cards support more applications and more platforms than DeckLink, so you can always work with your favourite software. Every DeckLink PCIe card can be installed in Mac, Windows and Linux based workstations and media servers to give you ultimate flexibility.

Flexible Format Support

The card offers flexible format and system support, letting you work with compressed video formats such as ProRes and DNxHD, as well as 12-bit 4:4:4 uncompressed video. When working with uncompressed video, all images are pixel-for-pixel identical to the source, without any generational loss. This lets you get sharper keying with green screens, cleaner compositions, superior color correction, and more. Support for common file formats provides ready-to-edit files for use in popular editing, effects, and design software applications. DeckLink Studio 4K is compatible with Mac-, Windows-, and Linux-based workstations.

Optical Fiber Connections

Two optical fiber connections on the daughter card support optional optical fiber modules for Dual Link optical fiber SDI input and output. SMPTE compatible optical modules can be added for up to 12G-SDI speeds, allowing you to choose to connect equipment using optical fiber connections instead of regular BNC copper cables for much longer cable runs, even at 12 Gb/s speeds.
