Blackmagic Design BDLKMINIREC4K Overview
Record SD, HD, or 4K footage via HDMI or SDI with the Blackmagic Design DeckLink Mini Recorder 4K. Whether recording for broadcast or backing up older media to newer, more robust formats for current projects, the Decklink Mini Recorder 4K has you covered. The input panel holds a single SD/HD/3G/6G-SDI input and an HDMI 2.0 input, both capable of DCI and UHD 4K resolutions.
Consumer and professional video codecs are supported, including H.264, Apple ProRes, AVC-Intra, and more, allowing full-resolution input of nearly any project. Wide software support including Blackmagic Design’s own DaVinci Resolve and Fusion in addition to other popular platforms such as Apple’s Final Cut Pro X, Avid’s Media Composer, and Adobe’s Premiere and After Effects CC, allows for the same hardware to be used with changing workflows over time.
The card itself requires an open PCI-Express slot conforming to at least PCI-E 2.0 x4 specifications. PCI-E x8 and x16 slots in 2.0 and 3.0 variants can also be used. A full-height bracket comes pre-installed, and a low-profile bracket is included for installation in a small form-factor PC or an external chassis.
