The Blackmagic Design Duplicator 4K is a standalone professional SD card duplicator/recorder with built-in realtime H.264 and H.265 encoding. Now you can immediately sell and deliver multiple copies of content to consumers the moment your event is finished. The Blackmagic Duplicator 4K lets you dramatically increase revenue because it gives you a way to sell your content to fans as they leave the venue, to parents after their children’s latest performance or recital, after sporting events, conferences, sales seminars and more. It is the best way to deliver Ultra HD content to your customers that can actually view immediately on their 4K televisions today.
Duplicator 4K lets you record in all SD, HD and Ultra HD formats, up to 2160p60. H.264 and H.265 encoding produces high quality video in small files that can fit on commonly available, inexpensive SD cards. H.264 works with the devices we have today, while H.265 is the new standard for delivering Ultra HD. You can even connect multiple duplicators together to make hundreds of recordings all at once!
Small, Low Cost SD Cards
There’s no better way to deliver content than with super small, high speed SD cards! SD cards are readily available, affordable and are compatible with computers and TVs! Plus, when it comes to packaging content quickly, they’re easy to label and put into attractive, presentable wallets that look great at point of sale. The Duplicator 4K records using H.264 or H.265, so you can easily fit a one hour Ultra HD program onto an inexpensive 8GB SD card. Best of all, the cards can be re-used, so the extras can be recorded over and used again at your next event!
Create Unlimited Copies
For larger events, you can connect multiple Duplicator 4Ks together and record an unlimited number of copies, all at the same time! Simply loop the RS-422 deck control and SDI video to multiple duplicators, then start recording on the first one. When you push a button on the front panel of the first unit, it sends the command out via the RS-422 remote and into all of the connected units so they all start recording simultaneously! You can set up a road case with enough duplicators to handle massive events and because the cards are re-usable, you never have to worry about wasting media because you can simply record over them again later!
Rapid Card Formatting
You can easily load and format all 25 cards from the front panel at the same time. That means you don’t have to format them one at a time on your computer! At the end of the event you can take cards out as you sell them and because the cards are re-usable, you can simply reformat and record over the unsold cards at your next event!
Single File Recording
Includes revolutionary new append record button that lets you seamlessly combine recordings from different parts of an event into a single file. For example, if you are recording events that have natural breaks, like weddings with a ceremony and reception in different locations, the Duplicator 4K can automatically append the recordings all into a single file. This makes it easier for guests to watch because they only have to play back a single movie!
Working with multiple cameras and a live production switcher is very fast and creative, however many events only require a single camera and operator. If you’re working alone, you can still produce multiple copies and sell content faster than ever before! Simply plug the SDI output from your camera into the duplicator, start shooting and the Blackmagic Duplicator 4K will automatically start encoding and making copies. This device recognizes the SDI start/stop commands from the camera so it automatically starts and stops recording whenever you start and stop the camera!
