Availability:  


Turn your desktop computer into a video editing system able to capture and broadcast HD and SD video.

The MOTU HD Express HDMI video interface opens your Mac or Windows desktop computer to the world of HDMI video, the next-generation digital video connectivity standard found on today's latest HD cameras, monitors, and set-top boxes. The HD Express HDMI computer interface comes with PCI Express card connectivity for today's ultra-fast, multi-core Mac and PC towers.

The MOTU HDMI video interface supports full-raster, pixel-for-pixel digital clarity with no video compression, resulting in stunning image quality and color depth that far surpasses highly-compressed workflows based on DV, HDV, AVC, and similar capture codecs. In fact, on many of today's cameras, HDMI output streams directly from a camera's image sensor, bypassing the compression chip, allowing the HD Express HDMI to deliver an absolutely pristine, uncompressed HD digital video signal straight from the camera's imager to your computer.

If you require the best-possible image quality, you can work with uncompressed HD and use the money you save on the HD Express HDMI for other system components required for uncompressed HD, such as fast storage. Or, if you prefer to edit more conveniently at a lower data rate, you can choose Apple ProRes, ProRes HQ, or the codec of your choice in Apple Final Cut Pro for maximum CPU efficiency and smooth editing. In Premiere Pro on Windows, you can choose among several popular codecs, including DVCProHD. By choosing a codec directly supported by your host, you eliminate unnecessary extra stages of compression and decompression which produces maximum CPU efficiency and smooth video editing.

To monitor your work with the best possible image quality, connect the the MOTU HD Express HDMI output to your favorite affordable plasma, LCD monitor, or projector via HDMI or DVI (DVI adapter sold separately). The HD Express HDMI video interface provides all the legacy analog video connectors you need for capturing and monitoring component HD/SD, composite, and S-Video in 10-bit 4:2:2 broadcast quality PAL or NTSC.

The HD Express HDMI computer video interface captures and plays all eight channels of embedded HDMI audio, and it even provides eight channels of analog audio output on convenient RCA jacks, which you can connect directly to powered speakers for full 5.1 or 7.1 surround audio monitoring. S/PDIF digital I/O is also provided.

From initial capture to final finishing, the HD Express HDMI delivers exceptional video I/O performance and quality.
