In this episode we talk about Blackmagic Design’s UltraStudio line of equipment. We use a lot of Blackmagic gear, Jason uses the UltraStudio Express to for getting Thunderbolt to SDI, Dave and Steve use the UltraStudio 4K to do an alpha key, and Dave uses the UltraStudio Mini Recorder to get HDMI into his MacBook Pro using Thunderbolt.
Here is the cliff notes:
– UltraStudio Express has 1 SDI or HDMI output to use as a scan converter. (Also has 1 input). In order to use this with ProPresenter 5 you need to buy this module ($100)
– UltraStudio 4K has 2 SDI or HDMI outputs to be used as an alpha key in your switcher. (also has 2 inputs). In order to use this with ProPresenter 5 you need to buy this module ($100)
– MiniRecorder allows for HDMI or SDI into ProPresenter. Bonus: Jason mentions Eventsagram, which allows you to stream an instagram feed live, to a screen.
