Blackmagic design believe that the video industry is rapidly changing from a vertical market of specialized hardware design into a horizontal market of open standards engineering.
Computerization means standardization, and in its efforts to revolutionize the video industry Blackmagic Design deliberately focuses on the rapidly evolving and maturing computer standards for video processing by building complementary video hardware that seamlessly fits into these highly transparent environments.
Blackmagic Design DeckLink video boards can connect to any existing SD or HD video equipment using any existing SD or HD video standard, while at the inside they tap into the standard QuickTime or DirectShow layers, merging the two worlds of high end video processing and standard computing. As a result DeckLink video hardware can be used in combination with Final Cut Pro, Premiere Pro, Vegas, After Effects, Combustion, Shake or any other software compatible with the open QuickTime or DirectShow standards. By consequence there is practically no limiting factor to use standard Mac or PC software and hardware to do the most demanding editing or compositing job at whatever quality level.
Introducing Multibridge Eclipse
New features include:
• 2K, HD and SD true uncompressed real-time capture and playback.
• New 3 Gb/s SDI technology with dual link SDI connections.
• HDMI capture and playback.
• Analog component, NTSC, PAL and S-Video capture and playback.
• 12 channels of AES/EBU audio capture and playback.
• 4 channels of analog XLR audio capture and playback.
• 16 channels of SDI audio capture and playback.
• 32 independent audio level meters.
• Full compatibility with the new Apple ProRes codec in Final Cut Pro.
Multibridge Eclipse introduces 3 Gb/s SDI connections. Normal HD-SDI operates at 1.5 Gb/s and these new SDI connections are twice as fast,
while retaining compatibility with normal HD-SDI and standard definition SDI equipment.
3 Gb/s SDI allows 4:4:4 RGB using a single BNC connection, however themost exciting aspect is we have developed a new technology that allows
3 Gb/s to connect real time 2K (2048 x 1556) feature film resolution video. This means you can connect real time 2K video between equipment
just as you do with SD and HD video today.
Multibridge Eclipse captures and plays back native 2K via SDI using a single BNC cable but also includes dual inputs and outputs for compatibility with current dual link 4:4:4 equipment. Multibridge Eclipse is compatible with existing equipment today but also has potential to support even higher resolutions in the future using dual link 3 Gb/s SDI connections.
If you’re working with HDMI and analog video, then Multibridge Eclipse allows capture and playback in HDMI as well as analog component, NTSC,
PAL and S-Video. Multibridge Eclipse also includes 3D lookup tables on playback, so you can simulate film stock looks, or compensate for displays etc.
Multibridge Eclipse also features a massive 12 channels of AES/EBU audio on XLR connectors, as well as 4 channels of pro analog audio on
XLR connectors. To accommodate the extra audio connections, Multibridge Eclipse is a larger 2 rack units in size.
Multibridge Eclipse will be available in July for R 27,895.00
