Item Description:
you need a capture card that can handle both analog and digital connection in and out. DeckLink Extreme is the ultimate standard definition card, because it combines the analog component YUV/NTSC/PAL switchable video and analog XLR audio in and out




DeckLink HD Extreme is the most advanced capture card ever built. With SDI, HDMI and analog video inputs and outputs, 3D lookup tables and the world?s first 3 Gb/s SDI, DeckLink HD Extreme is the highest quality solution for broadcast and post production in SD, HD video and 2K film.

Connect to Anything
DeckLink HD Extreme is the only solution which connects to SDI, HDMI, component analog, NTSC/PAL and S-Video equipment for capture and playback, while instantly switching between SD, HD and 2K. DeckLink HD Extreme includes 2 channels of AES/EBU audio in and out and 2 channels of XLR professional analog audio in and out. Work with the widest range of equipment, such as HDCAM, HD-D5, HDCAM SR 4:2:2, Betacam SP, Digital Betacam, HD receivers, HDV cameras, televisions, mixers and more.

More HD Real Time Effects
DeckLink HD Extreme's super fast 10 Gb/s connection plugs directly into your editing software's real time effects processing. Unlike FireWire products, you get all CPU time for real time effects, so only PCI Express lets you upgrade to HD without limiting real time effects. The higher speed of PCI Express also easily handles advanced formats such as full resolution 2K digital film.

World's Highest Quality
With the exciting new 3 Gb/s SDI connections built in, DeckLink HD Extreme allows twice the SDI data rate than normal HD-SDI. Use 3 Gb/s SDI for high resolution real time 2048 x 1556 feature film editing. 3 Gb/s SDI has full compatibility with SD, HD and 2K in 4:4:4 or 4:2:2 with a single BNC cable.

True Professional Quality Audio
DeckLink HD Extreme features unbalanced AES digital audio in and out as well as XLR balanced pro audio for incredible quality while maintaining sample accurate AV sync. Only DeckLink HD Extreme includes a massive 16 channels of SDI embedded audio support for HD capture and playback, and 8 channels of SDI embedded audio for standard definition capture and playback.
