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, then HyperDeck Shuttle 2 can be instantly changed over to use DNxHD MXF compressed video files. The popular Avid DNxHD is a SMPTE standard codec that's used by thousands of broadcast and post production facilities worldwide as it maintains 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! There’s no need to haul around a computer because the lightweight HyperDeck Shuttle does it all, yet fits easily in your backpack! You can even add HyperDeck Shuttle to your tripod along with your camera!
Solid State Disk (SSD) Technology
Simply plug in 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 uncompressed video effortlessly! Removable media like CF and SxS cards simply cannot match that kind of performance and require slow file copying to use. With no moving parts, SSDs are extremely robust and you can edit direct from the disk. Only SSDs can easily handle shocks and vibrations that would destroy conventional hard drives or videotapes.
Unparalleled File Compatibility
Why be locked into one NLE or color grading system with a proprietary codec that could become obsolete at any time? HyperDeck Shuttle captures universally compatible uncompressed QuickTime files that can be used with all popular software packages like Final Cut Pro, Premiere Pro, After Effects, Resolve and Apple Color, both now and well into the future. You’re always free to use the editing, color correction and finishing tools that you choose, and that are best for your clients and your jobs. That’s a true open format!
Faster Cost Effective Workflows
HyperDeck Shuttle improves every step of your production workflow pipeline. For quick on set QC or client preview, connect HyperDeck Shuttle to a projector or television via the HDMI or SDI outputs. You can even edit directly from the SSD with no digitizing or file copying. Simply plug the SSD into your laptop or desktop via a standard external eSATA dock and the disk mounts right on your computer’s desktop! SSDs are not much bigger than a credit card, so they can be sent anywhere in a simple overnight envelope.
The following SSD's are recommended for uncompressed 10-bit video capture:
- OCZ 240GB Vertex 3
- OCZ 480GB Vertex 3
- Crucial 256GB C300
- Kingston 64GB SSDNow V+
- Kingston 128GB SSDNow V+
How much recording time will I get?
A 128 GB SSD will allow you to capture about 12.5 minutes in HD while a 512 GB SSD will provide about 50 minuutes of uncompressed HD video capture. If you're only capturing SD video, then the recording time is generally 4 times of what you can get compared to capturing HD video.
Does not include any ssd drives.
