MOTU are proud to announce their new HDX-SDI, a thunderbolt enabled video interface offering an array of video and audio I/O. Similar to the original HDX-SDI PCI Express version, the Thunderbolt version takes advantage of the latest I/O tech to enable streamlined use between Macs and PCs.
With direct video plug and play connectivity through the HDMI, S-Video, HD/SD-SDI and HD/SD Component ports, camera and video sources can be connected quickly and easily straight into your video editing software.
Thunderbolt means 10Gbps of uncompromising data stream, so uncompressed video at up to 10bit colour depth and 1920x1080HD resolution can be delivered straight from the camera sensor and imager to your software. If you want to work at lower data rates, Apple ProRes, ProRes HQ, Avid DNxHD or a codec of your choice can be used within Avid Media Composer, Apple Final Cut Pro, or Adobe Premier Pro.
But this isn’t just a dedicated video interface, MOTU have pulled from their extensive experience in the audio field and included 16 channels of balanced 96 kHz audio I/O through both TRS and AES/EBU input. Sony 9-pin machine control is also included for extended capture and editing operations.
Overall, the latest MOTU HDX-SDI looks to be a solid answer for those looking for a workhorse interface to tackle the demands of their AV projects.
