HyperDeck Shuttle 2

Blackmagic Design

The world's smallest uncompressed video recorder!

HyperDeck Shuttle dramatically improves the quality of video cameras and is the perfect portable field recorder for live production switchers! It's also the ultimate solution for digital signage. HyperDeck Shuttle gives you the quality and flexibility of compressed ProRes or DNxHD and uncompressed recording direct to common low cost SSDs in the smallest possible size! HyperDeck Shuttle is compact, affordable and battery powered so it’s perfect as a field recorder. HyperDeck Shuttle bypasses your camera’s compression and records from SDI and HDMI direct into the highest quality video possible! SSDs are cheap and fast, so you can edit directly from the SSD media itself. Only SSDs eliminate time wasting file copying!

Compressed or Uncompressed

Now you have the freedom to work in both compressed and uncompressed video depending on the needs of your project! Uncompressed video will always produce the highest quality mathematically perfect results and is ideal when recording video for color correction, chroma keying and high end VFX work. When you need longer recording duration or you're working with lots of video material, HyperDeck Shuttle 2 can be instantly changed over to use ProRes or DNxHD MXF compressed video files. The popular Apple ProRes 422 (HQ) and Avid DNxHD files are SMPTE standard codecs that are used by thousands of broadcast and post production facilities worldwide as they maintain the highest 10-bit video quality with the advantage of smaller file sizes.

Go Anywhere, Record Everywhere!

With a compact and incredibly sturdy design, HyperDeck Shuttle is machined out of a solid block of aircraft grade aluminum! That means you get a design with the strength to go anywhere! Take your HyperDeck Shuttle into the field, on set, to live events, or even on your extreme sport shoots. With an internal battery, just recharge and go! The possibilities are virtually endless!

Solid State Disk (SSD) Technology

Simply plug a 2.5” solid state disk into HyperDeck Shuttle and you get video recording with blazing fast speed, low power consumption and totally silent operation. Now you can eliminate complicated and expensive disk arrays. A single SSD can record either compressed or uncompressed video effortlessly! Removable media like CF and SxS cards simply cannot match that kind of performance and require slow file copying to use.
