Blackmagic Design Duplicator 4K
Now you can realtime encode, duplicate and sell Ultra HD content to customers at live events!
The Blackmagic Duplicator 4K makes it easy to deliver multiple copies of content to customers the moment an event is finished! You get an SD card duplicator with built in realtime H.264 and H.265 encoding. H.264 works with the devices you have today, while H.265 is the new standard for delivering Ultra HD. The Blackmagic Duplicator 4K is the best way to deliver Ultra HD content that customers can actually view on their 4K televisions today! The multi rate 12G-SDI connections let you record in all SD, HD and Ultra HD formats, up to 2160p60. H.264 and H.265 encoding gives you high quality video in smaller files so you can use smaller and cheaper SD cards. You can even connect multiple duplicators together to make hundreds of recordings all at once!
Now you can sell video at live events the moment they finish!
The best time to sell content is right after an event when people are still excited about it! Now you can capture the enthusiasm of impulse buyers and instantly sell them a copy before they walk out the door!
The new standard for Ultra HD delivery!
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!
Content that customers can view on their 4K TVs today!
With 4x the resolution of regular HD, Ultra HD is the future of television! With estimates that over 70% of televisions sold worldwide are Ultra HD, that means Ultra HD is here now. The promise of Ultra HD is stunning, crystal clear images that have much better color and far more detail than regular HD. Until now, there’s been no way to deliver high quality 4K to consumer televisions. The Blackmagic Duplicator 4K lets you deliver Ultra HD content directly to your customers that they can play on their Ultra HD televisions today!
Automatically trigger recording from your camera!
Working with multiple cameras and a live production switcher is very fast and creative, however many events only require a single camera and operator. If you’re working alone, you can still produce multiple copies and sell content faster than ever before! Simply plug the SDI output from your camera into the duplicator, start shooting and the Blackmagic Duplicator 4K will automatically start encoding and making copies. The Blackmagic Duplicator 4K recognizes the SDI start/stop commands from the camera so it automatically starts and stops recording whenever you start and stop the camera!
Quickly format all cards without using a computer!
With the Blackmagic Duplicator 4K you can easily load and format all 25 cards from the front panel at the same time. That means you don’t have to format them one at a time on your computer! At the end of the event you can take cards out as you sell them and because the cards are re-usable, you can simply reformat and record over the unsold cards at your next event!
Record hundreds of copies in real time!
For larger events, you can connect multiple Blackmagic Duplicator 4Ks together and record an unlimited number of copies, all at the same time! Simply loop the RS-422 deck control and SDI video to multiple duplicators, then start recording on the first one. When you push a button on the front panel of the first unit, it sends the command out via the RS-422 remote and into all of the connected units so they all start recording simultaneously! You can set up a road case with enough duplicators to handle massive events and because the cards are re-usable, you never have to worry about wasting media because you can simply record over them again later!
Easily merge multiple shots into a single file!
The Blackmagic Duplicator 4K includes revolutionary new append record button that lets you seamlessly combine recordings from different parts of an event into a single file. For example, if you are recording events that have natural breaks, like weddings with a ceremony and reception in different locations, the Blackmagic Duplicator 4K can automatically append the recordings all into a single file. This makes it easier for guests to watch because they only have to play back a single movie!
