Everything you need to encode, duplicate and sell content at live events
The Blackmagic Duplicator 4K features a realtime H.265 encoder and 25 SD card recorders that are miniaturized into a single rack unit design. The machined metal design is durable, lightweight and small enough to take anywhere. That means you can duplicate content right where you’re recording and selling it. You get an attractive LCD display for status, professional broadcast connections such as 12G-SDI with loop through and RS-422 deck control so you can connect multiple units together and record more cards at the same time.
Automatically trigger recording from your camera
Working with multiple cameras and a live production switcher is very fast and creative, however many events only require a single camera and operator. If you’re working alone, you can still produce multiple copies and sell content faster than ever before. Simply plug the SDI output from your camera into the duplicator, start shooting and the Blackmagic Duplicator 4K will automatically start encoding and making copies. The Blackmagic Duplicator 4K recognizes the SDI start/stop commands from the camera so it automatically starts and stops recording whenever you start and stop the camera.
Quickly format all cards without using a computer
With the Blackmagic Duplicator 4K you can easily load and format all 25 cards from the front panel at the same time. That means you don’t have to format them one at a time on your computer. At the end of the event you can take cards out as you sell them and because the cards are re-usable, you can simply reformat and record over the unsold cards at your next event.
Record hundreds of copies in real time
For larger events, you can connect multiple Blackmagic Duplicator 4Ks together and record an unlimited number of copies, all at the same time. Simply loop the RS-422 deck control and SDI video to multiple duplicators, then start recording on the first one. When you push a button on the front panel of the first unit, it sends the command out via the RS-422 remote and into all of the connected units so they all start recording simultaneously. You can set up a road case with enough duplicators to handle massive events and because the cards are re-usable, you never have to worry about wasting media because you can simply record over them again later.
Easily merge multiple shots into a single file
The Blackmagic Duplicator 4K includes revolutionary new append record button that lets you seamlessly combine recordings from different parts of an event into a single file. For example, if you are recording events that have natural breaks, like weddings with a ceremony and reception in different locations, the Blackmagic Duplicator 4K can automatically append the recordings all into a single file. This makes it easier for guests to watch because they only have to play back a single movie.
Records to small, low-cost SD cards
There’s no better way to deliver content than with super small, high speed SD cards. SD cards are readily available, affordable and are compatible with computers and TVs. Plus, when it comes to packaging content quickly, they’re easy to label and put into attractive, presentable wallets that look great at point of sale. The Blackmagic Duplicator 4K records using H.265, so you can easily fit a one hour Ultra HD program onto a very cheap 8GB SD card. Best of all, the cards can be re-used, so the extras can be recorded over and used again at your next event.
No proprietary players needed
The Blackmagic Duplicator 4K records video in an open file format using H.265, which is the standard for Ultra HD delivery. Combined with SD card media, you get a solution that’s compatible with virtually everything. SD cards can contain SD, HD or Ultra HD video and work with both Mac and Windows computers. You can even use a USB adapter to plug them directly into your Ultra HD television set. Unlike proprietary disc based formats, like Blu-Ray, you don’t have to buy a slow and expensive player. The Blackmagic Duplicator 4K is the easiest, most compatible and cost effective way to distribute Ultra HD content today.
