The latest version of Blackmagic Design’s HyperDeck software (v. 2.0) adds compressed 10-bit recording and playback of files stored in the Avid DNxHD format.
The company said that adding native support for this compressed video format into the 1RU HyperDeck Studio unit enables longer recording times, lower media storage costs, and full file format compatibility with Avid Media Composer systems. All media is recorded in MXF format, so it’s immediately available in Media Composer without the need for time-consuming file copying or import processing.
HyperDeck Studio continues to support for uncompressed 10-bit video, for the ultimate in high quality recording and playback. With this new software update, customers can change between compressed and uncompressed formats, depending on their needs of the project at hand.
HyperDeck Software Update 2.0 will be available at the end of November free of charge for all HyperDeck Studio customers.
Jackson’s latest video blog highlights just how much he and his team are focusing their energies on getting the 3D right for the new films, the first of which arrives next December.
We’re also treated to some techie insight into shooting 3D at 48 frames per second, twice the usual rate for cinema. Apparently this required the film-makers to paint Mirkwood in bright red and yellow so that the final shots of the famous forest ended up with a slightly hallucinogenic effect.
We have lots of entry level HD Cameras for any budding filmmakers!
With the most accomplished consumer 3D camcorder yet, JVC has taken the lead over all other manufacturers. The Everio GS-TD1 can shoot Full HD frames for each eye, giving it the best 3D image quality on the market. Currently, only the software supplied can take full advantage of the resolution, but this is still the best 3D camcorder currently on the market.
David Shapton, President of Atomos EMEA, gives us an in depth look at the new Atomos Ninja hdmi to ProRes (HQ) recorder. If you want one you should order now as this product will most likely sell like hot bread!
This is a basic Howto tutorial for setting up and using the Black Magic Intensity Pro capture card. It is a $200 hardware, and records HDMI or component signals. It has HDMI inputs and outputs, as well as a breaker cable for Component inputs and outputs, allowing you to record and play on your TV at the same time.
This video shows the basics of installing the Black Magic card into your computer and how to set it up using Component cables. If you aren’t sure you have open PCIe ports, first, USE GOOGLE IMAGES to search what PCIe ports look like. Second, OPEN UP YOUR COMPUTER, and see if any of them are available. Any size PCIe port will work with the Black Magic.
This capture card is the internal version of Intensity Pro. It requires an open PCIexpress port, and works in any size PCIexpress. If you have an x58 based motherboard with True USB 3.0, you can use the Intensity Shuttle. The Shuttle is EXACTLY like the Intensity Pro, but is completely external and because of that is easier to set up. To check if you have USB 3.0, look for a blue USB port. As for checking if you have an x58 based motherboard, check your system specs or look on the box of your motherboard.
