Almost all video you see on a computer (or TV for that matter) is massively compressed. This means that various algorithms are used to reduce the amount of data in the signal to a point where it is practical to distribute it over limited bandwidth connections, like say your home internet. The most ubiquitous encoding format used to accomplish this is a form of MPEG-4 called h.264. Ever watch Youtube or download an iTunes movie? You are likely watching an h.264 encoded signal. The Blackmagic Design H.264 Pro Recorder allows industry professionals to input high quality uncompressed signals like HD-SDI or HDMI, have them encoded as h.264 in real time, and then saved to your computer’s hard drive over a USB connection.
With BlackMagic’s free Media Express software, you can encode hours of content into popular online formats and batch H.264 files with an attractive user interface as well as create playlists from captured files. The software supports CMX EDL import and RS-422 accurate deck control, and is compatible with Mac and Windows operating systems. It also provides clip information such as frame size, frame-rate, color space, format, and codec.
