HD Video Streaming/Recording


from Los Angeles, CA

Love the construction of the product, feels solid and well built. Required just the included software to provide access to external camera source. HDMI & HD-SDI are great for professionals.

Easy and powerful well built device


from Winnipeg,MB

Awesome device, too bad they cheap out and don't provide you with a firewire cable! Completely useless without it. Little tricky to get setup with your DSLR, had to call tech support which was fast and knowledgeable. Make sure on you Mac to go into System Preferences after you install the software and choose "Digital" vs the default Analog. Also, this won't work for old analog devices like the Canon XL2.


Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Brad T  Is this capable of connecting to a Canon XL2 camcorder? If so, will it upres the signal?
Andrew R  I'm not sure I understand your question. This unit accepts input either via BNC or HDMI and then outputs to Thunderbolt. It is not camera specific. I don't believe that this unit will "up-res" the output.
Shopper  Under Windows 7, can you get 24 bit audio using the included Media Express application or with Adobe Premiere Pro CC?
Andrew R  That question would likely be best answered by the manufacturer.
