[NAMM] MOTU HDX-SDI Thunderbolt
MOTU introduced the HDX-SDI with Thunderbolt technology.
The HDX-SDI is a video interface designed to turn a Thunderbolt technology enabled Mac or PC into a HD/SD video production workstation equipped with the video and audio I/O needed for capture and monitoring.
Users can connect a video source to their computer via the HDX-SDI, from SD camcorders to today’s HD cameras, then log and capture clips into their video editing software, including Final Cut Pro, Media Composer 6, and Premiere Pro. The HDX-SDI is designed to support all standard SD and HD video formats up to and including 1080p30 (720p, 1080i, 1080p & 1080PsF).
Users can capture uncompressed pixel-for-pixel HD video input via HD-SDI or HDMI with 4:2:2 10-bit color depth and 1920 x 1080 resolution. For compressed workflows, users can choose ProRes, ProRes HQ, Avid DNxHD, or the codec of their choice.
Advanced features include ASC CDL color grading, RS-422 (SONY 9-pin) machine control, bi-level and tri-level video ref sync, time code in/out with front-panel time code display, 16 channels of simultaneous audio input and output, multi-stem 5.1 and 7.1 surround sound capturing/monitoring, 8-channel analog audio I/O on quarter-inch TRS connectors, 8-channel AES/EBU digital audio I/O, 8-channel SDI and HDMI audio with embedding/de-embedding, and more. Time code support includes LTC, VITC (SD analog), D-VITC (SD-SDI) and embedded (SD/HD-SDI).
The HDX-SDI is housed in a one rack-space cast metal enclosure with removable brackets for desktop operation.
The HDX-SDI with Thunderbolt technology will ship Spring, 2012. Price is TBA.
