The new HyperDeck Extreme 8K HDR features the trusted reliability of HyperDeck combined with new innovations such as space saving H.265 files, optional internal cache, 3D LUTs, native 8K and HDR support! With the ability to record native 8K in H.265, you get reduced storage costs and amazing image quality. The large touch screen ensures a perfect view of your recording as well as control over all deck settings. You can then add HyperDeck Extreme Control to transform it into a traditional broadcast deck! This means HyperDeck Extreme is the perfect solution for the next generation of broadcast, live production and digital signage!

Modern Design with Traditional Controls
HyperDeck Extreme has an innovative touch screen user interface with deck controls as well as a large screen to view your recording. Then add a HyperDeck Extreme Control for traditional broadcast deck controls and a large shuttle knob that feels incredibly luxurious to use! You can even rack mount the HyperDeck and the controller!

Perfect for Live Production, Digital Signage and Archive
With its amazing versatility, HyperDeck Extreme is also great for live production as a master recorder, clip player and for recording ISO cameras.

Convert Legacy Programming for Streaming
HyperDeck Extreme Control lets you connect to legacy broadcast decks, set an in and an out point, then edit. Just add HyperDeck Extreme 8K and HyperDeck Extreme Control to each legacy deck to keep them all archiving constantly with just one operator.

Record and Playback Full Resolution 8K
The latest Quad Link 12G-SDI is included so it’s possible to record and playback in full resolution 8K for amazing quality!

Big Bright Screen for Easy Touch Control
The innovative touch LCD user interface provides incredible control. On screen, there are dedicated buttons for play, stop and record, plus a mini timeline for scrolling through your recordings.

Traditional Broadcast Deck Controls
You can control up to 8 decks via industry standard RS‑422 control. You can even rack mount to the HyperDeck Extreme to create a single "broadcast deck" unit. Because it uses standard RS‑422, you can control old broadcast decks and perform edits using set in and out points.

Dual CFast Media for Non Stop Recording
CFast media support allows you to record to commonly available flash memory cards. The H.265 files are small enough to allow long recordings on standard CFast cards. Plus there are 2 CFast card slots so you can swap out any full cards even during recording, allowing infinite length recording.

Record Direct to External USB‑C Media Disks
If recording to other media types is required, then the USB‑C Expansion port lets you plug in an external flash disk for recording. USB‑C flash disks have massive capacity as they don't suffer from any size constraint. Plus, it’s possible to record to the same disk you are using or editing, so you don't need to waste time copying files before starting post production.

Optional Media Cache Eliminates Dropped Frames
You can install a PCIe flash disk into HyperDeck Extreme 8K to use as a record cache. This eliminates problems with CFast media or external disks, as the cache will automatically take over and record any content the media could not capture.

Advanced Quad Link 12G-SDI for 8K, HDMI and Legacy Analog
HyperDeck Extreme 8K features a wide range of video and audio connections such as multi-rate Quad Link 12G-SDI for SD, HD, Ultra HD and 8K SDI devices. The 12G-SDI outputs support fill and key when playing RGBA 4:4:4:4 files. HDMI is included for consumer televisions and video projectors.

Advanced HDR Support and Bright Wide Gamut LCD
You'll be ready for the latest HDR workflows with support for the latest HDR standards and an extremely bright screen with a wide color gamut. The built in scopes even change to HDR scopes when working in HDR formats.

Built In Scopes Ensure Compliance to Broadcast Standards
HyperDeck Extreme features full internal waveform monitoring so you can ensure compliance to broadcast standards when used on high end work. The waveform display provides a traditional luminance (brightness) levels view of your input or playback signal. The vectorscope display allows you to see the intensity of color at 100% SDI reference levels.

Latest MultiRate 12G-SDI for SD, HD, Ultra HD and Native 8K
You get full support for the most popular video standards. The SDI and HDMI connections are multi-rate, so handle SD, HD, Ultra HD and 8K. SD formats include NTSC and PAL. 720p HD standards include 720p50 and 59.94p. 1080i HD interlaced formats include 1080i50 and 59.94. 1080p HD formats include 1080p23.98, 24, 25, 29.97, 30, 50, 59.94 and 60p. You can even do 1080 PsF formats. Ultra HD is supported up to 2160p59.94. 2K and 4K DCI rates are available up to 25p. 8K standards are included at 4320p23.98, 24, 25, 29.97, 50, 59.94 and 60p. HyperDeck Extreme also supports Level A and Level B at 3G‑SDI rates.

Standard H.265 and ProRes Files for Wide Compatibility
8K has 4 times as many pixels as Ultra HD so HyperDeck Extreme 8K uses H.265 files for 8K recording to reduce costs and make working with 8K files easy. H.265 files are extremely small and range from 60:1 to 285:1 compression ratios which means much lower file sizes. Plus H.265 are now supported on all major operating systems. You can use H.265 for all 8K, Ultra HD or progressive HD formats. HyperDeck Extreme 8K even supports ProRes 422 HQ, ProRes 422, ProRes 422 LT for recording and playback plus ProRes 4444 for playback to fill and key out. This means files will be compatible with software such as DaVinci Resolve, Media Composer, Premiere Pro or Final Cut Pro X.

Professional Multi Channel SDI and Analog Audio
HyperDeck Extreme 8K HDR includes professional audio for modern broadcasters or archiving from older broadcast decks. When working in SDI formats, you can record 2, 4, 8 or 16 channels of audio in real time. For capturing legacy programming there are 4 XLR analog audio inputs that let you record all 4 channels from Betacam SP decks.

Localized for 11 Popular Languages
Multiple languages are fully supported so you don't need to learn another language to use it! Support is included for English, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Spanish, German, French, Russian, Italian, Portuguese and Turkish.

The Fastest Networking with Modern 10G Ethernet
With 10G ethernet, HyperDeck Extreme 8K HDR is perfect for digital signage because remote uploads are extremely fast.

Compatible with Controllers, Switchers, Converters and More
There's a wide range of Blackmagic Design products you can use with HyperDeck Extreme, including the HyperDeck Extreme Control for adding traditional broadcast deck controls. Plus it uses the industry standard RS‑422 deck control protocol so it works with any broadcast deck! Add the new Blackmagic MultiDock 10G to use regular SSDs for compatibility with media from other HyperDeck models. HyperDeck Extreme 8K is also a perfect mastering recorder with the new ATEM Constellation 8K, or for clip playback and ISO recording. For monitoring, the Teranex SDI to HDMI 8K allows broadcast monitoring on a television and it also has monitor calibration, 3D LUTs and on screen scopes.

Works with the World's Most Popular Video Software
The files from HyperDeck Extreme 8K are common so they are compatible with all operating systems or in most video software. Media can be formatted using ExFAT or HFS+ so you can easily access the media on computers and access the files like regular disks. DaVinci Resolve is perfect for use with HyperDeck because it features editing, color correction, audio post production and visual effects all in one software application. Plus you can download DaVinci Resolve free of charge for Mac, Windows and Linux! You can also use recorded files in other popular software such as Premiere Pro and Final Cut Pro X. With HyperDeck, your media is common so your files will remain readable in the future.
