" It’s hard to imagine something so tiny can capture full uncompressed 10 bit SDI in HD and play it back ... "

Innovative video production tool company Blackmagic Design has introduced a sexy new disk recorder that captures uncompressed 10 bit video on Solid State Disks (SSDs).

Known as the HyperDeck Shuttle, this compact and portable field recorder is battery powered for recording high quality video and audio on location shoots and is usable with live production switchers — all for a suggested list price of around $345.

With SDI and HDMI inputs and outputs, HyperDeck Shuttle works with virtually every camera and video deck, effortlessly plugging into monitors or televisions for instant on set previews and can be used as a video playback source for digital signage systems or portable production switchers.

“It’s hard to imagine something so tiny can capture full uncompressed 10 bit SDI in HD and play it back, all from a removable SSD disk that you can edit on,” Blackmagic Design CEO Grant Petty stated. “It’s incredible, and so low cost that everyone will be able to work in uncompressed quality.”

According to the company, HyperDeck Shuttle is machined out of a solid block of aircraft-grade aluminum and features a rechargeable, internal battery. The unit can also be mounted directly to a tripod alongside the camera, boosting portability.

Compatible with Final Cut Pro, Premiere Pro, After Effects, DaVinci Resolve and other popular applications, HyperDeck Shuttle bypasses your camera’s compression to record the uncompressed video to the SSD, enabling users to edit directly from the SSD by plugging it into an eSATA dock; eliminating file copying, and smoothing workflows.

Blackmagic says that SSD is the latest media technology, featuring flash storage in a low cost and small 2.5” size that is shock and vibration resistant. SSDs offer fast speeds, minimal power consumption and silent operation. It has no moving parts and provides a perfect replacement for traditional videotape while eliminating expensive disk arrays.

“SSDs really are the ‘videotape’ format for the 21st century,” Petty added. “It seems like every day the disks are getting even bigger, faster and more affordable!”
