The new DeckLink Mini 4K models are low profile 4 lane generation 2 PCI Express cards that include 6G-SDI and HDMI 2.0a connections. This means the high quality connections support broadcast quality 10-bit YUV and 12-bit RGB video, along with the latest Rec. 2020 colour and support for high dynamic range (HDR) formats and HDR metadata. Both DeckLink Mini 4K models are fully compatible with the Blackmagic Desktop Video SDK, making them perfect for OEMs or developers that are building custom playback or recording solutions.

DeckLink Mini Recorder 4K can capture broadcast quality video directly from SDI and HDMI sources like decks and cameras to their computer. The low profile design of DeckLink Mini Recorder 4K makes it incredibly versatile and ideal for integrating into mobile live capture environments and outside broadcast trucks. Both models work with uncompressed and compressed video in open standard file formats such as QuickTime and DPX so they are compatible with virtually all professional editing, colour correction and visual effects software. That means customers can use the DeckLink Mini 4K models with software such as DaVinci Resolve, Fusion, Media Composer, Final Cut Pro, Premiere Pro and more.
