The H.264 Pro Recorder from Blackmagic works with popular video formats so you can encode directly from professional broadcast decks to H.264 files. The H.264 Pro Recorder is for the industry professional who needs professional encoding from SDI, HDMI, analog component/composite with balanced audio. The H.264 includes BlackMagic's Media Express software, which allows you to create a playlist of clips to review in realtime, search clips, and makes frame grabbing easy.
The H.264 allows you to select between various audio and video inputs. For video, choose between SDI, HDMI, or analog component inputs. Take audio from the SDI, HDMI or stereo balanced analog audio input jacks. The H.264 can be connected directly to SD or HD video sources because the SDI, HDMI and analog component inputs are used across multiple formats. Capture from HDCAM, Betacam SP, Digital Betacam, your DVD player, and more.
To protect content on your old videotapes, convert them to a digital format to preserve their life. Use the H.264 to encode all of your old video content before a tape is ruined.
