BLACK MAGIC HYPERD-ST-PRO
HyperDeck Studio disk recorders let you record the highest quality uncompressed and compressed ProRes and DNxHD video formats using fast 2.5" SSDs. Designed with familiar VTR controls, HyperDeck Studio includes innovative features that extend beyond the capabilities of traditional decks. Dual SSD slots let you record continuously, when one disk is full recording automatically continues on the next SSD. You can mount an SSD recorded using HyperDeck Studio on to any computer to access your files, so you don't need multiple decks to work with your media! There are two great HyperDeck Studio models to choose from.
HyperDeck Studio is a fantastic modern replacement for aging broadcast decks. You get the same functionality and control of a professional deck with the advantage of recording directly to uncompressed or industry standard ProRes and DNxHD video formats. Connect cameras, switchers or any other video feed to HyperDeck Studio and create files that are perfect for every production and post production workflow! With a slim 1 rack unit design, HyperDeck Studio is considerably smaller than a traditional VTR and fits easily into any equipment rack, OB vehicle or flyway kit!
HyperDeck Studio Pro
HyperDeck Studio Pro features 4 channels of 3 Gb/s SDI, HDMI and analog connections with standard XLR connectors for audio and timecode, and a built-in Thunderbolt port! Supports SD/HD, RGB 4:4:4 and 2K, plus full 4K playback from a single SSD using Apple ProRes.
HyperDeck Studio records SD/HD 10-bit 4:2:2 uncompressed video for perfect broadcast quality. With uncompressed video you can create the sharpest VFX plates for match moving, compositing and more. You get deep dynamic color range for color correction and perfect keying without jagged edges. You can also use industry standard compressed video formats that maintain incredible HD quality at reduced files sizes. With HyperDeck Studio Pro you can now push quality to new heights, with additional support for uncompressed RGB 4:4:4 and 2K, plus 4K playback using Apple ProRes.
Create files that are perfect for any broadcast and post production workflow! HyperDeck Studio's uncompressed video files are recorded in QuickTime format to provide universal compatibility with leading video software. Both HyperDeck Studio models also support Apple ProRes and Avid DNxHD industry standard file compression so you can record directly to your preferred video format. DNxHD and ProRes provide 5 times longer recording than uncompressed HD video, while maintaining 10-bit color and full frame 1920 x 1080 sampling.
HyperDeck Studio records universally compatible QuickTime files in 10-bit uncompressed or compressed DNxHD and ProRes formats so they can be used with all popular software packages, such as Final Cut Pro X, Adobe Premiere Pro CS6, After Effects CS6, Avid Media Composer 6, DaVinci Resolve and more. Customers will always be free to choose the editing, color correction and finishing tools that are best for their clients and jobs.

BLACK MAGIC HYPERD-ST-PRO FAQs
What SSDs should I use with the HyperDecks?
SSDs which are qualified for Uncompressed 10-bit video capture will also work well for compressed video capture. There are some SSDs which we have tested and found to drop frames when capturing Uncompressed 10-bit video. However, they still work well when capturing compressed video.
The following SSDs are recommended for Uncompressed 10-bit or compressed video capture: OCZ 240GB Vertex 3 (VTX3-25SAT3-240G) OCZ 480GB Vertex 3 (VTX3-25SAT3-480G) OCZ 240GB Deneva 2 (firmware 2.22) (D2CSTK251M21-0240) Crucial 256GB C300 (CTFDDAC256MAG-1G1) - (discontinued) Crucial 512GB M4 (firmware 009 or later) (CT512M4SSD2) Intel 335 Series 240GB SSD (SSDSC2CT240A4K5) Intel 520 Series 240GB SSD (SSDSC2CW240A310) Intel 520 Series 480GB SSD (SSDSC2CW480A310) Kingston 64GB SSDNow V+100 (SVP100S2/64G) - (discontinued) Kingston 128GB SSDNow V+100 (SVP100S2/128G) - (discontinued) Kingston 512GB SSDNow V+100 (SVP100S2/512G) - (discontinued) Kingston 120GB SSDNow V+200 (SVP200S3/120G) Kingston 240GB SSDNow V+200 (SVP200S3/240G) Kingston HyperX 240GB (SH100S3/240G) Sandisk Extreme 480GB (SDSSDX-480G-G25) PNY 240GB Prevail SSD (firmware 5.0.2) (SSD9SC240GCDA-PVL) OWC Mercury Extreme Pro 6G SSD (firmware 5.0.2) (OWCSSDMX6G240T) Digistor – 128GB SSD Professional Video Extreme (DIG-PVD128E, pre-formatted ExFat) Digistor – 240GB SSD Professional Video Series (DIG-PVD240S, pre-formatted ExFat) Digistor – 480GB SSD Professional Video Series (DIG-PVD480S, pre-formatted ExFat)
In addition to the above, these SSDs work only for compressed video capture: Crucial 256GB M4 (firmware 000F) (CT256M4SSD2) OCZ Agility 3 240GB (AGT3-25SAT3-240G) Sandisk Extreme 120GB (SDSSDX-120G-G25)
Important Notes About SSD Speed
Some models of SSD can’t save video data at the speed the manufacturer claims. This is due to the disk using hidden data compression to attain higher write speeds. This data compression can only save data at the manufacturer’s claimed speed when storing data such as blank data or simple files. Video data includes video noise and pixels which are more random so compression will not help, therefore revealing the true speed of the disk.
Some SSDs can have up to 50% lower write speed than the manufacturer’s claimed speed. So even though the disk specifications claim an SSD has speeds fast enough to handle video, in reality the disk isn’t fast enough when used to store video data for real time capture. However, this mostly affects HD capture and often these disks can still be used for playback.
Use Blackmagic Disk Speed Test to accurately measure whether your SSD will be able to handle uncompressed video capture and playback. Blackmagic Disk Speed Test uses data to simulate the storage of video so you get results similar to what you’ll see when capturing video to a disk. During Blackmagic testing, we have found newer, larger models of SSD and larger capacity SSDs are generally faster.
