This Go-to Video Interface Handles All Kinds of Video!
The HDX-SDI video interface is one more reason why we turn to MOTU for professional video production. You can easily capture or monitor video in most popular video software using uncompressed HD and SD and Apple ProRes formats. Take full advantage of the HDX-SDI's HDMI, HD/SD-SDI, HD/SD component, and S-video I/O, freeing yourself from the limitations of your other video equipment. You also get 16 channels of pro-quality digital audio via analog, AES/EBU, and embedded formats, along with the HDX-SDI's ultra high-speed ExpressCard connection.
Because many cameras feed their SDI, HDMI, or component video straight from their optics before introducing compression, the HDX-SDI can capture the pristine data and insure that you only get the best possible image quality - up to 10-bit color depth at 1920 x 1080 resolution! And when it comes to outputs, we love the HDX-SDI's flexibility and multiple simultaneous monitoring solutions. At the same time you monitor the digital HDMI for pixel-for-pixel accuracy on a large plasma screen, you can also adjust the color by running a HD-SDI feed to an LCD reference monitor, while keeping and an eye on the final "real-world" consumer view on a television via the analog HD, SD, component, or S-video outputs.
We've found the HDX-SDI also to be convenient for lower data-rate editing because of its direct codec integration. The ability to load a wide range of codecs makes working with the Apple ProRes or ProRes HQ codec in Final Cut and Adobe Premiere Pro a snap, and opens the door to working with any other codec in most video software. So, when you work with the HDX-SDI, you can avoid extra compression and decompression stages for maximum CPU efficient and smooth editing.MOTU HDX-SDI video interface with ExpressCard Connection Features:
