Black Magic Design's DeckLink Mini Monitor HD and DeckLink Mini Recorder HD.

Blackmagic Design has unveiled two updated models of its DeckLink Mini cards — the DeckLink Mini Monitor HD and DeckLink Mini Recorder HD.

Featuring 3G‑SDI and HDMI connections, the playback solutions cards support video formats up to 1080p60 and 2Kp60 DCI, and are designed to work with advanced color spaces, such as Rec. 2020, while also available at a lower cost.

DeckLink Mini Recorder HD and DeckLink Mini Monitor HD feature advanced high-quality video technology that supports uncompressed and compressed capture and playback at the highest 10‑bit SD and HD quality. Both models support broadcast quality 10‑bit YUV and 12‑bit RGB 4:4:4 for pixel-perfect capture and playback so customers get greater image quality and detail.

Replacing the previous 1.5G‑SDI models, the update to 3G‑SDI has allowed more features to be added such as support for video formats up to 1080p60 and 2Kp60 DCI, wider color spaces including Rec. 2020, as well as support for RGB video formats.

The new DeckLink Mini HD models are low profile 1 lane Gen 2 PCI Express cards that fit easily into either desktop or rack mount server style computers with the included full height and low profile PCIe shields. They can capture from decks, cameras and live video sources, and output to monitors, projectors, media servers, and more, making them ideal for editing, compositing, graphics production and unlimited broadcast and post-production situations, where the highest quality video and true versatility are demanded.

DeckLink Mini Recorder HD lets customers capture broadcast quality video from 3G‑SDI and HDMI sources with any PCIe computer. Customers can capture from virtually any SD or HD source including HDCAM, D5, SDCAM, Digital Betacam and more. DeckLink Mini Recorder HD also works with popular video streaming software such as OBS so customers can capture from cameras or live productions switchers and integrate the video directly into live broadcasts.

Customers who need simple capture can choose the DeckLink Mini Recorder HD.

Blackmagic Design CEO Grant Petty said the DeckLink Mini Recorder HD and DeckLink Mini Monitor HD are perfect for a wide range of workflows as they delivered broadcast quality at a very low cost.

“We are excited to be able to add support for formats up to 1080p60 and 2K DCI to these new cards, as well as including support for advanced color spaces and HDR,” he said.

“They fit in almost any computer, even low profile server-class computers which means that every editing station can monitor or capture in stunning broadcast quality at a very low cost.”
