DeckLink Duo is perfect for developers who need two completely independent capture and playback streams in and out of a computer, or two channels of video in a single card. DeckLink Duo is two independent DeckLink SDI style capture and playback cards in one! 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.
Two Capture Cards in One The new DeckLink Duo has two SDI inputs & two outputs, offering the functions as a system which has two capture cards. It only takes only a single PCI Express slot. It also has a tri-sync/black burst reference input.
Unrivaled Video Quality DeckLink Duo lets you work with compressed video formats such as ProRes, as well as 10-bit uncompressed video. When working with uncompressed video, all images are a mathematically perfect pixel-for-pixel clone of the source, without any generational loss, so you have the confidence you’re working at the absolute highest quality possible. Get sharper keying with green screens, cleaner compositions, superior color correction and more! Support for industry leading file formats ensures that you can maintain high quality throughout post production should you need to use video compression.
Supports your favorite software! DeckLink Duo supports most popular software on Mac OS X, Windows and Linux, such as Apple Final Cut Pro X, Adobe Premiere Pro/After Effects/Photoshop, Avid Media Composer, and more.

This review is from: Blackmagic Design DeckLink Duo BDLKDUO
Pros: The device works well for the purpose I purchased it for (5 stars)
Cons: The ports aren't labeled and the documentation doesn't have it (-3 stars)
Other Thoughts: TL:DR version - counting up from the bottom of the card, the ports are:
5 - SDI Out 2 (top edge of card) 4 - SDI In 2 3 - SDI Out 1 2 - SDI In 1 1 - Ref. In (PCIe slot)
Blackmagic is firmly placed between "pro" and "consumer" IMO. While the software and documentation are attractive and very approachable for consumers, they woefully lack common and necessary elements like LABELING THE I/O ON THE BACK OF THE CARD! Five identical ports with no indication on the hardware, in the software utility (generic software for a range of products), or in the PDF documentation (generic documentation for range of products) as to which port is used (1 ref. input, 2 in, 2 out).
Instead, the user is stuck navigating Blackmagic's awful website to try and find a connection diagram. Since I've unfortunately had to use their site on many occasions, I knew exactly where to look. It requires six clicks to find the connection diagram - SIX - and that's if you know exactly how to navigate their site. Don't bother going to the support page, by the way - it is not the support you are looking for.
