Includes new Snow Leopard, ProRes compatibility

Blackmagic has announced several product updates, to both its video hardware and the supporting software. Within the first group is the DeckLink Studio 2, an upgraded capture card which now has 10-bit HDMI capture and playback. The company is also introducing the HDLink Pro DP, a DisplayPort version of an existing HDTV monitoring converter. The new DeckLink is selling for $695, while the alternate HDLink Pro model is $495.

The software update comes in the form of DeckLink 7.3. New code adds support for the DeckLink Studio 2, as well as Mac OS X Snow Leopard and Final Cut Studio 3. Also inserted are RED and ProRes 4:4:4:4 Easy Setups for Final Cut Pro, plus 1080 RGB-to-YUV playback conversion. On the DeckLink HD Extreme 3 users now have access to 2K and 1080p50/60 modes, for either dual-link or 3Gbps interfaces. Bundled with the v7.3 software is a public beta of Media Express 2.0, which has been upgraded with playlists, DPX support and a new cross-platform interface.
