The Power of Thunderbolt™

That’s enough bandwidth to handle the highest resolution video formats easily! Thunderbolt ensures low latency and highly accurate time synchronization, making the UltraStudio ideal for demanding HD work.

UltraStudio makes it easy to work with all the video formats you need, conveniently on your desktop or notebook computer.

Unmatched Quality

Now you can handle any job your client presents to you, from TV to feature films. UltraStudio operates with both compressed and uncompressed video, so it can handle anything and you're not locked into a single codec quality. When working with uncompressed video, all captured images are a perfect pixel-for-pixel clone of the source, without any generational loss or damaging compression, so you have the confidence you’re working at the absolute highest quality possible. Get the sharpest green screens, cleanest compositions, superior colour correction and more! With mature drivers, award winning Media Express software, attractive design, and the highest quality video.

Advanced Video Technology

UltraStudio Mini models might be low cost, but they include the same advanced video technology that other companies charge tens of thousands of dollars for. You get low jitter SDI video that meets broadcast specifications and instantly switches between standard definition and high definition. That means you can use it for anything. The included HDMI connections adhere to the latest versions of the HDMI standard so you eliminate HDMI incompatibilities.
