Blackmagic Design Announces Realtime 2K End to End Workflow (27/4/2010)

Blackmagic Design’s 2K SDI format has been adopted for real time capture and playback in full resolution 2048 x 1556 2K

Blackmagic Design has announced full compatibility with the new Sony “HDCAM-SR” SRW-5800/2 deck for capture and playback in native 2K.

At NAB 2007, Blackmagic Design introduced Multibridge Eclipse and HDLink Pro, which introduced the world’s first 3 Gb/s SDI connections for editing and monitoring. At this time, Blackmagic Design introduced a new 2K SDI format that took advantage of the faster speed of 3 Gb/s SDI, and this allowed real time capture and playback of 2K 2048 x 1556. This new 2K over SDI format allowed feature film work to be handled using the same easy workflows as video had traditionally benefited from.

Since that time, Blackmagic Design has introduced a wide range of products with 3 Gb/s SDI and support for 2K. These models include DeckLink HD Extreme 2, DeckLink HD Extreme 3, Multibridge Eclipse, Multibridge Pro, HDLink Pro, HDLink Pro Optical Fiber, Studio Videohub, Broadcast Videohub, Enterprise Videohub, Mini Converter Optical Fiber and more.

With a current installed base of tens of thousands of customers using Blackmagic Design products that support 3 Gb/s and native 2K, all these customers will now be fully compatible with this new Sony HDCAM-SR deck with 2K for direct to tape capture and playback.

2K SDI is an open format, and is published in Blackmagic Design operation manuals for products that support 2K. Any company can develop products that support 2K SDI allowing this exciting SDI film format to become widely adopted. This format will also be submitted to standards organizations for adoption.

Blackmagic Design’s DaVinci Resolve color correction system has also been updated to include support for DeckLink HD Extreme 3, and now also supports native 2K color grading direct to and from the new Sony HDCAM-SR deck. This allows for the first time, full end to end DI workflow with the ease of conventional video workflows. Now customers have an easy way to color correct and edit in native 2K, and eliminate the slow and cumbersome file based workflows.
