Blackmagic Design has released a new version of its HyperDeck Shuttle Solid State Disk recorder. HyperDeck Shuttle 2 replaces the existing model and adds broadcast quality 10-bit recording and playback to the Avid DNxHD format for the same price of US$345.
HyperDeck 2.0 software public beta is available to download now from the Blackmagic Design web site (http://www.blackmagic-design.com). Any customer who has HyperDeck Shuttle 2 can download this software update to add DNxHD compressed recording.
HyperDeck Shuttle now records the highest quality uncompressed or compressed video formats onto common SSDs in the smallest possible size. It’s battery powered so can be used as a field recorder. For direct camera mounting, a mounting plate can be added to provide multiple pre-drilled 1/4-inch and 3/8-inch mounting holes.
HyperDeck Shuttle allows video file recording to bypass the camera’s compression by recording from SDI and HDMI directly to 10-bit uncompressed QuickTime or Avid DNxHD MXF formats. All media is recorded in MXF format that’s immediately available for all Avid Media Composer systems and leading video applications including Blackmagic Design’s DaVinci Resolve.
