Rating: 5/5Professional piece of equipment for film making
Pros: Professional quality capture. Up to 2K 12bit RGB 4:4:4 uncompressed. HDMI, component, composite and S-video for all your more primitive capture needs.
If you plug in your HDMI camera to this device, you can get much higher quality out of your camera, because you bypass the camera's internal compression.
Software comes with a Disk speed tester to see what level of video you can capture. It comes with a capture program, a control panel where you can specify which format you want to capture in. It also comes with plug-ins for all of the major editing software out there: Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro, Avid, and Sony Vegas.
For the price, this product is well worth the money.
Cons: Hard to use, little documentation on how to use, except with extensive online research.
The card is USB 3, and REQUIRES the NEC chipset for USB 3.
I'm using a ASUS P9x79 pro motherboard and had to buy an additional USB 3.0 card for any captures over 720p, otherwise it would crash Premiere or the included software and hang my computer on shutdown.
Note that you need either an SSD or a ram disk for the highest quality capture. Even 7200 rpm HDD's can't handle 10 bit uncompressed capture, unless they're in a RAID set up. Single ones might possibly be able to handle MJPEG capture though.
Other Thoughts: DO NOT get this product unless you know how to compress video. Note that uncompressed uses a lot of storage, so you probably need more than 4Tb of storage. ( A 10 bit 1080i at 60 fps RGB 4:4:4 uncompressed video can use 834 GB/hr that's about 14 Gb/minute, about 230 Mb/s)
You need a fast read/write speed to record uncompressed, so you probably need either a SSD or a ram disk (A ram disk will be able to handle any level of uncompressed video, but with 32Gb of ram being over $250, an SSD is much more economical.)
