DaVinci is an incredibly
powerful grading tool Now
it also offers huge, intuitive
editing functionality. As such,
it’s the perfect companion
to Blackmagic cameras:

processing, Resolve is a
which supports dozens of
power windows, multi point
tracking and blurs, in real
Windows and MacOS. We
recommend HP workstations.
Camera 4K
Early large sensor UltraHD
cameras have been extremely
popular in the marketplace.
Whether the producer expects
to publish in UltraHD or to crop
from the full frame, UltraHD
acquisition is taking off.
Blackmagic Design’s nextgeneration camera delivers
stunning results at a scarcely
believable price. Despite
the cost, this is a very well
featured system:
•4K Super 35 sensor
•Global shutter

To-disk, To-screen
Blackmagic technology is leading the revolution in media
ingest. It started with the single channel capture devices
(highlighted opposite) but has exploded with the arrival of
multi-channel DeckLink cards.
Now, workstations can be used in studios and machine rooms
to ISO record numerous live video feeds, simultaneously
archive video from multiple sources or compliance- record a
number of TV channels.
