Blackmagic Design Duplicator 4K
Blackmagic Duplicator 4K
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!
