The Blackmagic Design HyperDeck Studio HD Plus allows you to record high quality video and audio material to SD cards. It features a modern design and quieter cooling system, and supports a wide variety of codecs, including H.264, ProRes and DNxHD with PCM or AAC audio. When recording is complete, you can insert the media directly into your PC to access the files using your favourite editing software. It also generates timecode and reference signal, so you can record separately and synchronize multiple units if necessary. For these reasons, it is ideal for broadcasts, live productions or digital signage.
The HyperDeck Studio has been completely redesigned and offers innovative features, including new professional controls and more connections on the rear panel. In addition, the LCD screen provides two display modes (light and dark), while the buttons are more robust and resistant.
The HyperDeck Studio HD Plus adds to the features of the HyperDeck Studio HD Mini, professional buttons for recording and playback control, speaker and headphone connections on the front panel, 6G SDI outputs for alpha channel and main picture playback, SDI monitoring, and recording to H.264 (1080p60) or ProRes and DNxHD (2160p30) files.
The HyperDeck Studio HD Plus includes professional playback controls and a rotary search knob. The compact display shows the timecode and a color thumbnail image of the sequence being recorded or played, and provides information about the status of the storage media, the format of the material, its frequency and audio levels. At the same time, it allows to monitor the images, control the volume and select the measurement mode (VU or PPM) with technically exact ballistics. The combination of these elements greatly simplifies the use of the device and makes it very easy to work with in high-level professional environments.
This Blackmagic HyperDeck video recorder lets you record to regular SD and UHS-II cards, so there's no need to invest in expensive storage media. The generated H.264 files are small, so you can store a large amount of material on inexpensive cards, or even connect external USB drives. For example, a 1TB card provides the opportunity to record up to 157 hours in 1080p59.94 resolution (H.264), i.e. more than six days of high-definition images.
The HyperDeck Studio HD Plus includes two memory card slots, allowing uninterrupted recording, as the device automatically uses the second unit when the first one has no more capacity. This is ideal when recording long events, as the full card can be removed at any time without stopping the recording. Each slot has an indicator that shows the unit used and lights red when recording or green when playing back images. HyperDeck Studio HD Plus recorders allow long sequences to be stored in a single file for easy distribution.
The USB-C port allows you to connect external drives with larger capacity than other storage media. In addition, the same drive can be used for recording and editing, which saves time since there is no need to copy files before starting post-production. Simply connect the drive to a computer and you're ready to go. External drives can also be managed from the menus on the recorder's LCD screen.
Blackmagic HyperDeck Studio HD Plus supports the most common codecs, e.g. DNx, ProRes and H.264, with 10-bit 4:2:2 quality when recording in NTSC, PAL, 720p, 1080p and 1080i. This allows compression ratios from 60:1 to 285:1 to achieve small files with high quality images. In addition, when uploading to YouTube, you can choose the audio format (PCM or AAC). All HyperDeck devices support ExFAT and HFS+ formatting systems and provide the ability to save long recordings in a single file.
HyperDeck Studio HD Plus recorders offer professional 3G and 6G SDI video connections, an HDMI output for connecting projectors and TVs. There is one SDI output for monitoring images and two additional video and alpha outputs for playback of ProRes 4444 files for overlays with mixers. The sync and timecode generator provides the opportunity to connect multiple units and synchronize them for stand-alone or parallel recording. AC and DC power connections are included.
HyperDeck Studio provides compatibility with a wide range of programs through the USB port. In addition to external disks, it is also possible to connect any computer to transmit the images. The recorder is detected on the computer as a webcam, thus enabling the transmission of high quality sources in HD 1080 resolution. Thanks to this feature, all versions support the use of applications such as Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Skype, Open Broadcaster and XSplit Broadcaster, among others.
Support for high dynamic range images allows you to be ready for cinema projects. The information related to this type of content is integrated into the SDI signal and transmitted to other connected devices. When recording, the SDI and HDMI inputs automatically detect these images, and the files are labeled accordingly. The PQ and HLG formats of static metadata are processed according to the ST2084 standard. In addition, the wide color spectrum of the LCD supports the use of Rec.2020 and Rec.709 spaces.
HyperDeck Studio HD Plus allows you to record 2, 4, 8 or 16 channels of real-time SDI audio. When external monitors are connected, the number of active channels is shown on the display, along with the level indicators. These have been designed to use the appropriate ballistics, and it is also possible to select the measurement mode (VU or PPM) via the device's menus.
HyperDeck Studio allows multimedia files to be transferred via FTP clients. They use a simple text-based protocol, and control commands can be verified via Telnet. Simply type "play" or "record" and the computer will play or record the images, respectively. By combining the control and file transfer protocols and connecting a HyperDeck recorder to a set of USB-C disks, you get an outstanding server for ingest, playback and organization of multimedia resources.
HyperDeck Studio models support a wide variety of RS422 protocols, allowing direct connection to various broadcast control systems. They also support AMP (Advanced Media Protocol) commands to drive disk recorders. When designing RS-422 control solutions, the 0xF0E0 (30/60p), 0xF1E0 (25/50p) or 0xF2E0 (24p) IDs indicate that the device is connected.
This generator, built into the Blackmagic HyperDeck Studio HD Plus, allows you to connect multiple units to generate digital signage or record multiple channels. Each device has special outputs for sync and timecode. The timecode runs freely, unless an external reference source is used. In this way, it is possible to connect several recorders in series and synchronize them seamlessly.
HyperDeck Studio records files that are compatible with virtually all editing programs. Using the H.264 format, they can be uploaded directly to streaming platforms such as YouTube, Facebook, Vimeo or Twitter. You can also use popular applications such as DaVinci Resolve, Final Cut Pro, Premiere Pro or Media Composer because the file format is the same as that used in post production, or even create visual effects in Fusion and After Effects.
