The world’s smallest Ultra HD broadcast deck!
HyperDeck Studio Mini is a miniaturized broadcast deck that’s so compact and portable you can use it anywhere! You get a choice of incredible quality H.264, ProRes or DNx codecs recorded to SD or UHS-II card media in either QuickTime or MXF file formats. HyperDeck Studio Mini has features such as 6G-SDI for all formats up to 2160p30, HDMI for monitoring, dual SD card slots for non-stop recording and built in sync generator that lets you daisy chain and synchronize multiple decks together! The dual link 6G-SDI out can be used for fill and key playback! HyperDeck Studio Mini includes RS-422 deck control, built in AC power and Ethernet with PoE+ for alternate power.
Professional Broadcast Deck
Perfect for broadcast mastering, ISO recording and digital signage.
HyperDeck Studio Mini is perfect for use as a master program recorder during live multi camera production, or as an ISO recorder from your cameras so you can edit the final program later. HyperDeck Studio Mini is also a powerful clip player for playback directly to air, or even as a client preview deck in a conference room with a large HDMI television. Because you can lock and sync the playback of multiple units together, it’s ideal for high resolution digital signs that use multiple screens. The separate fill and key SDI outputs let you use it to play animated broadcast graphics with an alpha channel for keying over live video with a live production switcher, all in real time!
Incredibly small design with powerful full size deck features!
HyperDeck Studio Mini features dual SD card recorders, professional connections, Ethernet, built in power and much more, all miniaturized into an elegant 5 inch wide compact and modular design. You can rack mount it using the optional Teranex Mini Rack Shelf and combine it with additional modules to create a customized deck! For example, if you need to get shots from old analog broadcast masters, simply add a Teranex Mini Analog to SDI, and now you can get old content into modern editing software. If you’re not using it in a rack, HyperDeck Studio Mini’s elegant design also looks great when used on a desktop. HyperDeck Studio Mini is a truly professional and very versatile broadcast deck!
Get 6G‑SDI, HDMI monitoring, reference, RS‑422 control and more!
HyperDeck Studio Mini features multi rate 6G-SDI connections so you can work with all SD, HD and Ultra HD formats up to 2160p30. You get an SDI input and two SDI outputs that can be used for fill and key. The HDMI output makes HyperDeck Studio Mini perfect for connecting to big screen televisions, projectors and digital signs. For large digital signage, there’s reference input and a reference generator with reference output that lets you sync multiple HyperDecks for ganged playback. You also get RS‑422 deck control, Ethernet and built in 110‑240V AC power supply. There’s even an SDK and easy to use Ethernet protocol, so you can develop your own custom solutions!
Familiar VTR Controls
Easy to use, so no training required!
HyperDeck Studio Mini features traditional deck style transport controls, including a small search dial for jog and shuttle. The compact LCD shows timecode and transport information, plus a full color thumbnail preview of the current clip in record or playback. It also displays information about each card’s recording status, along with video format, frame rate information and audio levels, all on the same display! The combination of familiar VTR style controls and the built in LCD screen makes HyperDeck Studio Mini incredibly fast to use and very easy to learn!
Common SD Card Media
Use affordable and popular SD cards and UHS‑II cards!
SD cards are commonly available, inexpensive and extremely reliable, which makes them perfect for use as professional broadcast media storage. Best of all, unlike mechanical hard disks, you get zero latency and instant playback. HyperDeck Studio Mini records to both regular SD cards and high performance UHS-II cards. You can use standard SD cards, or UHS-II cards when you want to record Ultra HD. SD cards are incredibly tiny, so you can create an archival library of your content that takes up a fraction of the space required by old tapes and disks! Plus now with the latest software update, HyperDeck Studio Mini recordings can be more than 3 hours long in a single file!
Supports ProRes and DNx
Records to post production friendly ProRes and DNx files.
HyperDeck Studio Mini records video as standard ProRes files, which is one of the most widely accepted professional video file formats in the world! You get high quality 10‑bit YUV or 10‑bit RGB recording in all formats up to 2160p30, recorded onto ExFAT or HFS+ formatted media cards. The ProRes files are compatible with software such as DaVinci Resolve and Final Cut Pro X, so you can simply insert the card into your computer and start editing, without converting files! You even get support for ProRes 4:4:4:4 in HD with image and alpha channels. That’s perfect for playing broadcast graphics out as fill and key to live production switchers for keying graphics and stingers over live video!
Incredible Quality H.264
Record H.264 files for easy editing, archive and distribution.
With the latest software update HyperDeck Studio Mini can record SD, 720p, 1080p and now 1080i HD true interlaced formats in H.264, allowing broadcasters to reduce costs even while recording and archiving thousands of hours of video. H.264 files are extremely small and range from 36:1 to 124:1 compression for lower file sizes, even while retaining great broadcast quality video. With the latest software, H.264 files now have AAC audio so you can upload recordings direct to YouTube. Plus with modern computers, H.264 files work with all edit software and are fast to use. Plus HyperDeck Studio Mini also supports ProRes in 422 HQ, 422, 422 LT and Proxy, plus DNx formats too!
Swap out when cards become full, even while recording!
HyperDeck Studio Mini features dual media slots for non stop recording. When the recording card becomes full, recording automatically continues onto the next card. That means you’ll never have to worry about missing an important shot. That’s perfect when recording at longer live events because the cards are also hot swappable, so you can swap a full card for an empty one while recording continues in the other slot! Each slot has an indicator light that changes color to show status so you’ll instantly know which card is in use. HyperDeck Studio Mini is repairable as the SD card slots use individual internal PCB’s that can be replaced if the slot ever becomes worn out from heavy use.
Multi Rate 6G‑SDI
Latest multi rate 6G‑SDI connections for SD, HD and Ultra HD!
You get full support for the most popular video standards. The SDI and HDMI connections are multi-rate, so they can handle SD, HD and Ultra HD television standards. SD formats include NTSC and PAL. 720p HD standards include 720p50 and 59.94p. 1080i HD interlaced formats include 1080i50, 59.94 and 60, while the latest software update means you get true interlaced support in H.264 files, making HyperDeck Studio Mini perfect for broadcasters. 1080p HD formats include 1080p23.98, 24, 25, 29.97, 30, 50, 59.94 and 60p. You can even do 1080 PsF formats! If you are working in Ultra HD, up to 2160p30p formats are supported via 6G-SDI. HyperDeck Studio Mini supports both 3G‑SDI Level A and Level B.
Includes 1G Ethernet
Get remote control and fast file transfer speeds via FTP!
Built in 1G Ethernet means HyperDeck Studio Mini is perfect for broadcast server and digital signage use. With the latest software updates, you can now transfer up to 110 Megabytes per second, which is so fast it allows you to copy video files as fast as the SD card can handle it! To upload media files remotely, you can use the FTP protocol or use common FTP client software. There are many types of FTP software available for uploading files. You can also remote control HyperDeck using an easy text based protocol, so it’s easy to use simple Telnet to test your control commands. Simply log into HyperDeck and then type “play” or “record” and it will execute the command. It’s that simple!
RS-422 Deck Control
Get both RS-422 deck control and advanced media protocol support.
The most popular control connection used on broadcast decks since the early 1980s is the RS-422 protocol. Originally developed by Sony, RS-422 is used on almost all broadcast gear. HyperDeck Studio Mini features wide protocol support so you can connect it direct to broadcast systems. It also supports extra commands for the Advanced Media Protocol for managing disk recorders. When designing RS-422 control solutions, you’ll know you’re connected to a HyperDeck Studio Mini when you see the ID 0xF0E0 in 30/60p, 0xF1E0 in 25/50p or 0xF2E0 in 24p. The full set of support remote commands are included in the instruction manual and you can download this from the support page of our website.
Works with Professional Software
Record files that are ready for editing, grading and distribution!
HyperDeck Studio Mini records files that are compatible with virtually all post production software. When recording in H.264, you can upload files from HyperDeck Studio Mini direct to streaming services such as YouTube, Facebook, Vimeo, Twitter and more! If you are working with popular editing software such as DaVinci Resolve, Final Cut Pro X, Adobe Premiere Pro or Avid Media Composer, you can start editing and color correcting without having to transcode or convert the files. Even motion graphics and visual effects artists using software like Fusion and After Effects can easily work with the files!
