      MOTU HDX-SDI video interface with PCI-e card (485438)
Availability:  


Transform your Mac or PC desktop into an HD/SD video production workstation with plenty of I/O.

The MOTU HDX-SDI video interface with PCI-e card adds comprehensive, professional video capture and monitoring to your Mac or Windows computer with support for uncompressed HD and SD, Apple ProRes, and many other popular workflows (support for Premiere Pro on Windows will be coming soon.) With the blazing speed of PCI Express, the HDX-SDI video interface turns your Mac or PC desktop or laptop computer into a powerful HD/SD video production workstation equipped with all the I/O you need.

Connect any source to the HDX-SDI interface, from SD camcorders to today's latest professional HD cameras, then log and capture HD or SD clips directly into your video editing software. For the best-possible image quality, use the MOTU HDX-SDI to capture uncompressed video via HD-SDI or HDMI with 4:2:2 10-bit color depth and full-raster 1920 x 1080 HD resolution. Many cameras feed their uncompressed SDI, HDMI, or component output directly from the camera's optics and imager, before compression, for absolutely pristine picture quality during capture with the HDX-SDI.

If you prefer to edit more conveniently at a lower data rate, use Apple ProRes, ProRes HQ or the codec of your choice in Apple Final Cut Pro or Adobe Premiere Pro. Because the HDX-SDI delivers 10-bit uncompressed video to the computer, you are not limited to a particular codec and are instead free to go with the host-based workflow of your choice, including many popular file-based formats now supported by today's video editing software.

By using a codec directly supported by your editing software, you eliminate unnecessary extra stages of compression and decompression for maximum CPU efficiency and smooth editing.

As you edit, monitor your timeline with pixel-for-pixel accuracy on a large plasma screen via digital HDMI output, with color-corrected balance on an LCD reference monitor via HD-SDI output, or with the real-world look of a consumer display via analog HD or SD component, composite or S-Video output.

Capture and monitor up to 16 channels of audio (analog, AES/EBU or embedded) at sample rates up to 96 kHz. Employ Sony 9-pin machine control for advanced Batch Capture and Edit to Tape operations. Keep everything frame-accurate using time code and video reference.

For high-performance desktop operation, the MOTU HDX-SDI video interface provides PCI Express card connectivity for today's ultra-fast, multi-core Mac and PC towers. Need to go mobile? The HDX-SDI is also available with an ExpressCard adapter for any current-generation Mac or Windows laptop equipped with an ExpressCard slot.

From initial capture to final finishing, the MOTU HDX-SDI delivers exceptional video I/O performance and quality.

MOTU Video I/O
The HDX-SDI interface provides comprehensive video input and output connectivity. Its SDI section supplies two mirrored outputs so that you can connect both a deck and a monitor simultaneously. The front panel provides convenient inputs for legacy SD capture and full 10-bit uncompressed HDMI capture from today's latest HD camcorders. The component section provides both RGB and YPbPr, but they can alternatively serve as CVBS (composite) in/out or even Y/C (S-Video) in/out.

Sync
The MOTU HDX-SDI provides comprehensive video and audio synchronization features, including time code I/O, video ref with loop through, large front panel time code readout and RS-422 (Sony 9-pin) machine control. Synchronize your HDX-SDI video system with reliable performance and fast lock-up times. Perform batch capture and edit/export to tape operations in Final Cut or Premiere with a 9-pin compatible camera or deck connected to the HDX-SDI interface.

Audio I/O
Audio I/O
The MOTU HDX-SDI delivers comprehensive audio capture and monitoring in stereo or full surround with support for both 5.1 or 7.1 configurations. The HDX-SDI interface provides four 8-channel banks of audio input and output: analog, AES/EBU digital, SDI embedded, and HDMI embedded. Up to 2 banks can be active at a time, giving you 16 channels of simultaneous audio input and output. The front panel provides comprehensive audio activity LEDs, plus eight channels of assignable 4-segment input metering.

The MOTU HDX-SDI interface's unique bank of quarter-inch analog TRS connectors makes it a snap to connect cameras and a wide range of video and audio gear up to eight channels at a time. No other interface offers professional analog audio connectivity with this much convenience.

The HDX-SDI's stereo (BNC) AES/EBU digital audio input and output are continuously sample-rate converted. This means trouble-free digital audio transfers, regardless of clock source. Say goodbye to clicks, pops, and headaches due to digital audio clocking issues.
