The original DeckLink has become world famous. Great for simple 10 bit SDI only applications, it features SDI in and out, unbalanced AES output and RS-422 remote control with all connections on the rear of the card. The original DeckLink model doesn't need genlock as it provides a stable SDI output for locking decks to the card, eliminating the need for a black burst generator.
All DeckLink cards have the same powerful features, with only the video and audio connections different between models. There is a DeckLink model specifically designed with connectivity for different types of broadcast decks, so you get only what you need at the most affordable price.
