This independent SDI capture card can now work in high HD frame rates and supports SDI formats in SD and HD up to 1080p60. Each SDI connection is completely independent, meaning that each of the 8 connections can input or output entirely different video standards and content streams, all at the same time.

Blackmagic DeckLink Quad 2 can also capture and playback at the same time and also include a reference connection for black burst/tri-sync. Developers can use the SDK to configure the eight SDI connections to be any combination of inputs and outputs.

Featuring the latest, high-performance 8 lane generation 2 PCI Express, Blackmagic DeckLink Quad 2 takes up only one single PCIe slot in the computer, which makes it the perfect solution for system integrators and developers that need completely customizable, flexible I/O configurations on a single card. DeckLink Quad 2 appears as 8 independent SDI cards to the host computer, even though it only uses a single PCI Express slot and is ideal for use in servers that need to handle multiple video streams for both simultaneous capture and playback.
