Blackmagic Design Duplicator 4K
Recoder and duplicator with 12G-SDI design, 25 SD card recorders, and built in hardware encoders for H.264 and H.265
Now you can long form record non-stop for weeks at a time, or simultaneously record to 25 SD cards
so you can distribute and monetize your live production!
The Blackmagic Duplicator 4K is like two recorders in one! Featuring 25 built in SD card recorders, Blackmagic Duplicator 4K can record to all 25 cards at a time, or be changed to record to a single card at a time for long form recording. When recording to all 25 SD cards, you get a duplicator that gives you 25 x H.264 or H.265 copies that you can sell to customers the moment a live event finishes. Imagine selling your program as attendees leave concerts, training seminars, or even school events! When changed to record a single SD card at a time, Blackmagic Duplicator 4K becomes a powerful long form recorder. With 25 SD cards, you can record for weeks at a time without needing to change the cards out. You can even set Blackmagic Duplicator to automatically clear the oldest card for infinite recording, making it perfect for security and broadcast program logging.
What?s New in Blackmagic Duplicator 4K 1.2 Update
The new Blackmagic Duplicator 4K 1.2 update lets you create incredibly long recordings using commonly available, inexpensive SD cards. Plus, the Blackmagic Duplicator 4K is remote controllable, making it perfect for security installations, live broadcast archival work and more. You can record regular HD onto inexpensive 16GB cards 24 hours a day for 4 days without stopping, or you can record non'stop for 66 days when using 256GB cards! Even when recording Ultra HD, you can still get incredibly long recordings before you need to add new blank cards to keep recording! You can even connect multiple duplicators together via SDI and RS'422 for even longer recordings!
Incredibly small, infinitely expandable design for duplicating and selling content or creating long form recordings!
The Blackmagic Duplicator 4K features a slim, light weight design that can easily fit into a mini rack so you can take itanywhere. Portable racks can be filled with multiple duplicators so you can create hundreds of copies simultaneously. You can connect either a single camera tothe Blackmagic Duplicator 4K or the output from your ATEM switcher if you?re working on live multi camera events. The large record and stop buttons make itsimple to operate from the front panel and, withRS'422 remote control, you can control multiple duplicators from a single unit!
Connect multiple duplicators for unlimited copies!
Each Blackmagic Duplicator 4K can make 25 copies at a time. If you?re working on larger events and need to make more copies, you can stack duplicators together and connect them with RS'422 and SDI loop through to make a virtually unlimited number of copies. If you need to deliver in multiple formats, you can add a Teranex Express between duplicators to convert into virtually any other format. That lets you make cards with regular HD in one duplicator and Ultra HD in another!
Make dozens of copies with the touch of a button!
The front panel of the Blackmagic Duplicator 4K is designed to make duplicating and recording content as easy as possible. There are 6 large, illuminated buttons for record, stop, lock, append, menu and remote. The lock button prevents you from accidentally interrupting recording during an event, and the append button automatically merges incoming video into a single file, even if the camera starts and stops. The menu button lets you use the high resolution built in LCD to adjust other settings, and the remote button puts the duplicator into slave mode so it can be controlled remotely.
25 SD Recorders in One!
Built in high performance SD card recorders!
The Blackmagic Duplicator 4K features 25 SD card recorders miniaturized into a single rack unit! The slots are designed to hold standard, common SD cards that are available anywhere. Each recorder features an LED indicator light for monitoring the status of the card. All the cards can be simultaneously formatted and, when they?re ready, the LEDs turn green. They also act as status indicators, lighting red during recording and flashing in different colors if cards are getting full, or to warn you of a problem.
Large bright monitor for set up and video preview!
The built in LCD screen on the front panel shows you a full color preview of the live video. The screen can show overlays with critical clip metadata such as audio levels, recording status and resolution. You can also use the LCD screen to navigate additional settings such as compression data rate, total number of mounted cards, SDI start/stop triggers and more, all on the same display!
Multi Rate Connections
Professional broadcast connections for SD, HD and Ultra HD
The Blackmagic Duplicator 4K features an advanced, multi rate 12G-SDI connection that automatically switches speed so you can record allSD, HD and Ultra HD formats up to 2160p60. There?s also an SDI loop through for connecting to additional duplicators so you can record on to more cards. Easily control multiple units simultaneously by looping RS'422 deck control so when you startor stop recording on one, the others follow. You also get USB andethernet ports, along with an optical fiber socket for adding optional fiber when you?re in a large venue set up far away from the camera or switcher!
Optional Optical Fiber
Install anywhere so you can make copies close to customers!
Working in large arenas or broadcast studios can force you to place the Blackmagic Duplicator 4K further away from the camera or switcher than regular SDI connections can handle. For events that take place in conference halls or music venues, youmay want to put the duplicator close to the merchandising stands so you can hand off cards quickly for sale. Using 12G over optical fiber solves the distance problems associated with remote set up. Optical fiber letsyou place the duplicator up to20 miles away from yourcamera or switcher without any loss of quality! Each Blackmagic Duplicator 4K includes an optical fiber socket allowing you to plug in an optical fiber SFP module to upgrade it whenever your production demands!
110V to 240V AC for Worldwide Compatibility!
The Blackmagic Duplicator 4K features an auto switching, 110V - 240V universal power supply that can be used anywhere worldwide! Because the power supply is built in, youcan use it in a rack or on a table top without having to worry about an external power brick. Now you can take your duplication capability on location anywhere in the world and be ready to record hundreds of copies immediately!
The Blackmagic Duplicator 4K is like two recorders in one!
