Turn Your Computer into a Full Video Production Studio!

The MOTU V4HD video interface updates the V3HD, providing a versatile plug-and-play hub for your video production operation with ProRes support within Final Cut Pro! FireWire connectivity and a host of video and audio I/O options on the V4HD give you the power to turn your desktop or laptop computer into a full-blown HD/SD production workstation. What's more, you get MOTU's Video Console software, for control over all programmable features, as well as CueMix Console software (which gives you control of all 32 channels of audio I/O). The MOTU V4HD puts you in complete control!

MOTU V4HD Video Interface at a Glance:
  • Great connection and monitoring options
  • Incredible audio and video editing and mixing capabilities
  • Streamline your workflow

Great connection and monitoring options
Connect all your gear, from SD camcorders and CRT monitors to today's latest professional HD cameras, video decks, LCD reference monitors and plasmas - all at the same time, with no cable swapping. Choose your input source, then log and capture HD and SD clips directly into Final Cut, converted on the fly and ready for fast, CPU-efficient editing in pristine native DVCPro HD quality, without the costly overhead required for uncompressed HD. Monitor simultaneously in HD and SD with real-time SD-to-HD up-convert, HD-to-SD down-convert and real-time pull-down insertion or removal.

Incredible audio and video editing and mixing capabilities
As you edit, watch your creation take shape in a variety of display formats simultaneously, from the pixel-for-pixel accuracy of a large plasma screen, to the color-corrected balance of an LCD reference monitor, to the real-world look of a consumer display. Use 32 channels of audio to capture, monitor, mix and master multichannel surround sound for your productions at sample rates up to 192kHz. Use time code, machine control, video reference and word clock to keep everything frame-accurate.

Streamline your workflow
From start to finish, the V4HD streamlines your video production workflow, with unified control over all your video gear from your computer desktop.
