Blackmagic Duplicator 4K is the 12G-SDI recorder with 25 SD card slots and integrated encoding hardware for H.264 and H.265.
SDI Video Inputs
The Blackmagic Duplicator 4K is like two recorders in one! Featuring 25 built in SD card recorders, Blackmagic Duplicator 4K can record to all 25 cards at a time, or be changed to record to a single card at a time for long form recording. When recording to all 25 SD cards, you get a duplicator that gives you 25 x H.264 or H.265 copies that you can sell to customers the moment a live event finishes. Imagine selling your program as attendees leave concerts, training seminars, or even school events! When changed to record a single SD card at a time, Blackmagic Duplicator 4K becomes a powerful long form recorder. With 25 SD cards, you can record for weeks at a time without needing to change the cards out. You can even set Blackmagic Duplicator to automatically clear the oldest card for infinite recording, making it perfect for security and broadcast program logging.
Blackmagic Duplicator 4K also features a standard realtime encoder for the older H.264 format. Even though H.265 is quickly gaining popularity, H.264 is still the world’s most common format for HD playback on big screen televisions and for web delivery. Although H.264 files are a bit larger and less efficient than H.265, it’s a format that’s compatible with billions of devices ranging from big screen televisions to web browsers and even mobile phones. With Blackmagic Duplicator 4K you have the option to choose the encoding format that works best for you!
The Blackmagic Duplicator 4K can encode video using the latest H.265, which is the new standard for Ultra HD delivery! You get realtime hardware encoding for incredible looking Ultra HD video, even at high frame rates up to 2160p60. The files are small, the image quality is incredible and the data rates are low enough to play back from standard SD card media! You can even play back Ultra HD 2160p60, which is 4 times the size of regular HD and twice the frame rate! Now you can deliver dramatically better looking video to your customers using small and affordable SD cards!
