Product Description


 Video Interface with the blazing speed of PCI Express turns your Mac or PC desktop or laptop computer into a powerful HD/SD video production workstation equipped with all the I/O you need. The HDX-SDI connects to a Mac or Windows tower via the included PCI Express card, but it is also available with an ExpressCard adapter for laptops.

You can connect any source, from SD camcorders to today's latest professional HD cameras, then log and capture HD or SD clips into your video editing software directly. For the best-possible image quality, use the MOTU HDX-SDI to capture uncompressed video via HD-SDI or HDMI with 4:2:2 10-bit color depth and full-raster 1920 x 1080 HD resolution. Many cameras feed their uncompressed SDI, HDMI, or component output directly from the camera's optics and imager, before compression, for absolutely pristine picture quality during capture with the HDX-SDI.

Using ProRes HQ or the codec of your choice in Apple Final Cut Pro or Adobe Premiere Pro if you prefer to edit more conveniently at a lower data rate. Because the HDX-SDI delivers 10-bit uncompressed video to the computer, you are not limited to a particular codec and are instead free to go with the host-based workflow of your choice, including many popular file-based formats now supported by today's video editing software.
