Multibridge Eclipse is the most sophisticated editing system available. With a massive number of video and audio connections, elegant design and the world's first 3 Gb/s SDI, Multibridge Eclipse is an industrial strength solution for post production and broadcast in SD, HD video and 2K film.
Connect to Anything
Multibridge Eclipse connects to SDI, HDMI, component analog, NTSC/PAL and S-Video equipment for capture and playback, while instantly switching between SD, HD and 2K. Multibridge Eclipse also has 12 channels of XLR AES/EBU audio in and out and 4 channels of XLR professional analog audio in and out. Now you can work with the widest range of equipment, such as HDCAM, HD-D5, HDCAM SR, Betacam SP, Digital Betacam, HD receivers, HDV cameras, televisions, mixers and many more.
Advanced 3 Gb/s SDI Technology
With the exciting new 3 Gb/s SDI connections built in, Multibridge Eclipse allows twice the SDI data rate than normal HD-SDI. Use 3 Gb/s SDI for 4:4:4 HD with a single BNC connection, or use Blackmagic Design?s new 2K via SDI for high resolution real time 2048 x 1556 feature film editing.
Only 3 Gb/s SDI technology provides full compatibility with SD, HD and 2K, in 4:4:4 or 4:2:2, all with a single BNC cable.
World's Highest Quality
Multibridge Eclipse is the first solution to include 3 Gb/s SDI allowing native 2K editing, while retaining full compatibility with HD-SDI and SD-SDI equipment. Multibridge Eclipse features incredible quality Dual Link 4:4:4 SDI and Single Link 4:2:2/4:4:4 SDI in 8 and 10 bit. Elegantly styled front panel status indicators and 32 independent audio level meters provide feedback for mission critical broadcast environments.
Enhanced Audio Connectivity
Multibridge Eclipse features a massive 12 individual channels of AES/EBU digital audio in and out using industry standard XLR connections with sample rate conversion on each input. Multibridge Eclipse also includes 4 channels of XLR professional analog audio in and out and 2 channels out for HiFi monitoring.
High Speed PCI Express Connection
Only Multibridge Eclipse's super fast 10 Gb/s connection plugs directly into the computer?s motherboard. Unlike FireWire, PCI Express doesn't suffer latency or require any video compression, so you get a fluid editing experience at the highest video quality. Includes PCI Express cable and 4 lane plug-in card.
Microsoft Windows or Apple Mac OS X
Use your favorite video software such as Final Cut Pro, Premiere Pro, After Effects, Photoshop, Combustion, Fusion and many more.
