Blackmagic Design DeckLink Duo 2
DeckLink Duo 2
PCIe capture and playback card with 4 independent channels for SD and HD up to 1080p60.
DeckLink Duo is perfect for developers who need two completely independent capture and playback streams in and out of a computer, as both capture and playback channels are completely independent. There are two SDI inputs, and two SDI outputs plus a common tri-sync/black burst reference. DeckLink Duo appears as two independent SDI cards to the computer, but only uses a single PCI Express slot. DeckLink Duo is perfect for servers where there are multiple streams or simultaneous capture and playback per system. DeckLink Duo is compatible with Windows™, Mac OS X™ and Linux™.

Avid Pro Tools™
Pro Tools is the world's most popular audio post production tool and now all DeckLink cards support playback of the Pro Tools reference movies out to the video outputs all in real time!

Eliminate this problem by adding a DeckLink card to your ProTools system and playing video and audio together while mixing!
