Blackmagic Design HyperDeck Shuttle 2 SSD Video Recorder

▪Now I have the freedom to work in both compressed and uncompressed video depending on the needs of my project! Uncompressed video will always produce the highest quality mathematically perfect results and is ideal when recording video for color  correction, chroma keying and high end VFX work. When you need longer recording duration or you’re working with lots of video material, HyperDeck Shuttle 2 can be instantly changed over to use ProRes or DNxHD MXF compressed video files. The  popular Apple ProRes 422 (HQ) and Avid DNxHD files are SMPTE standard codecs that are used by thousands of broadcast and post production facilities worldwide as they maintain the highest 10-bit video quality with the advantage of smaller file sizes.

Neo – DI Workflow for Digital Mastering and Feature Film
Online post workflows for all RAW and RGBA sources up to 4K spatial resolution

▪Optimized for digital mastering, digital cinema, television, and effects-heavy projects, Neo is the right product to support the most demanding 2D and 3D digital intermediate workflows. Neo converts virtually all camera formats from HDV to 6K digital cinema, DSLRS, 3D cameras, and file-based fomats including TIF and DPX into Cineform Digital Intermediate files for the highest quality editing, effects, and mastering workflows.

With versions for both Windows and Mac, CineForm’s Neo delivers a real-time digital intermediate workflow, even up to 4K spatial resolution, that is compatible with most NLEs — including from Adobe, Apple, Avid, and Sony — enabling cross-platform compatibility for 2D and 3D editing and effects applications that has never before existed. A CineForm DI workflow begins with the underlying CineForm Intermediate compression acclaimed for its high visual fidelity, and which is used routinely as the mastering format for 2D and 3D film, televison, and archive workflows.

Neo also includes the First Light application to allow non-destructive primary color correction, 3D adjustments, plus text and graphics overlays without flattening those adjustments into the underlying video layer. This is accomplished through First Light’s Active Metadata architecture that ensures compatibility with all QuickTime and AVI applications. Neo also includes HD Link (Win) and ReMaster (Mac) which convert virtually all camera or file sources into CineForm files at unrestricted spatial resolution.
