Product Description

The world’s smallest uncompressed video recorder now with DNxHD AND PRO RES!

Dramatically improve the quality of professional or consumer cameras! HyperDeck Shuttle gives you the quality of uncompressed recording direct to common low cost SSDs in the smallest possible size! HyperDeck Shuttle is compact, affordable and battery powered so it’s perfect as a field recorder. HyperDeck Shuttle bypasses your camera’s compression and records from SDI and HDMI direct into the highest quality uncompressed video. SSDs are cheap and fast, so you can edit directly from the SSD media itself. Only SSDs eliminate time wasting file copying!

Perfect Quality

Compression destroys image quality and even high-end cameras compress images. Now you will never compromise quality because you can bypass the camera compression to get perfect uncompressed 10-bit SD/HD video. That’s even higher quality than broadcast decks! Create the sharpest VFX plates for match moving, compositing and more. Get deep dynamic color range for color correction and do perfect, clean keying without jagged edges caused by compression. Even on shots like flyaway hair and multi-colored patterns. Now quality won’t limit your creativity!

Faster Cost Effective Workflows

HyperDeck Shuttle improves every step of your production workflow pipeline. For quick on set QC or client preview, connect HyperDeck Shuttle to a projector or TV via the HDMI or SDI outputs. You can even edit directly from the SSD with no digitizing or file copying.vtrbuttons.jpg

Familiar VTR Feel

HyperDeck Shuttle has standard deck style function buttons, as well as LEDs that indicate input signal lock, recording and battery status. With the affordable HyperDeck Shuttle you won’t be tying up your expensive VTRs, but you’ll still be in familiar operating territory.

Unparalleled File Compatibility

Why be locked into one NLE or color grading system with a proprietary codec that could become obsolete at any time? HyperDeck Shuttle captures universally compatible uncompressed QuickTime files that can be used with all popular software packages.

Go Anywhere, Record Everywhere!

With a compact and incredibly sturdy design, HyperDeck Shuttle is machined out of a solid block of aircraft grade aluminum! That means you get a design with the strength to go anywhere! Take your HyperDeck Shuttle into the field, on set, to live events, or even on your extreme sport shoots. With an internal battery, just recharge and go! The possibilities are virtually endless!

Solid State Disk (SSD) Technology

Simply plug a 2.5” solid state disk into HyperDeck Shuttle and you get video recording with blazing fast speed, low power consumption and totally silent operation. Now you can eliminate complicated and expensive disk arrays. A single SSD can record uncompressed video effortlessly! Removable media like CF and SxS cards simply cannot match that kind of performance and require slow file copying to use.

***

The following SSD's are recommended for uncompressed 10-bit video capture:

  1. OCZ 240GB Vertex 3
  2. OCZ 480GB Vertex 3
  3. Crucial 256GB C300
  4. Kingston 64GB SSDNow V+
  5. Kingston 128GB SSDNow V+

Important Notes About SSD Speed

Some models of SSD can’t save video data at the speed the manufacturer claims. This is due to the disk using hidden data compression to attain higher write speeds. This data compression can only save data at the manufacturer’s claimed speed when storing data such as blank data or simple files. Video data includes video noise and pixels which are more random so compression will not help, therefore revealing the true speed of the disk.

Some SSDs can have up to 50% lower write speed than the manufacturer’s claimed speed. So even though the disk specifications claim an SSD has speeds fast enough to handle video, in reality the disk isn’t fast enough when used to store video data for real time capture. However, this mostly affects HD capture and often these disks can still be used for playback.

Use Blackmagic Disk Speed Test to accurately measure whether your SSD will be able to handle uncompressed video capture and playback. Blackmagic Disk Speed Test uses data to simulate the storage of video so you get results similar to what you’ll see when capturing video to a disk. During Blackmagic testing, we have found newer, larger models of SSD and larger capacity SSDs are generally faster.

SSD’s are certified for use with HyperDeck Shuttle include the OCZ 240GB Vertex 3, Crucial 256GB C300, Kingston 64GB SSDNow V+ and Kingston 128GB SSDNow V+. More disk brands will be listed as they are certified.

 

 

Connect to Professional or Consumer Cameras

With SDI and HDMI inputs and outputs, HyperDeck Shuttle works with virtually every camera, deck or monitor! Effortlessly plug into monitors or televisions for instant on set preview. Use HyperDeck Shuttle as the video playback source for digital signage systems or switchers. Imagine using HyperDeck Shuttle connected to a live production switcher for recording events, and then using it for live playback! HyperDeck Shuttle can do almost anything and it’s so small you’ll take it everywhere!

FAQ:

How long will HyperDeck Shuttle run on the built-in batteries?

The built-in batteries will last for about 1 hour when recording and about 1.5 hours while playingback.

HyperDeck Shuttle's battery performance also depends on the power consumption of the SSD drives used. Some drives consume twice as much power as other similar capacity ones from other brands.

 

If I am recording SDI, will the HDMI output be available for preview?

 

Yes, all outputs are available when recording or playing back. For instance, you can record SDI but preview on both the SDI and HDMI outputs.

How much recording time will I get?

A 128 GB SSD will allow you to capture about 12.5 minutes in HD while a 512 GB SSD will provide about 50 minuutes of uncompressed HD video capture.

If you're only capturing SD video, then the recording time is generally 4 times of what you can get compared to capturing HD video.
Yes. A 12V power adapter is included, but you can also power it off an external power supply such as a camera battery as HyperDeck Shuttle supports an input voltage range of 12V to 18V.
 

What kind of SDI connectors are on the  HyperDeck Shuttle?

HyperDeck Shuttle uses DIN 1.0/2.3 connectors.
Please be sure to order a DIN to BNC cable if you will be using HyperDeck's SDI Input or Output. This cable allows you to use standard SDI cables with the Hyperdeck. We recommend purchasing two as you would use one for the Input and one for Output.
