HyperDeck Shuttle HD is a recorder and player that's designed to be used on the desktop! That means it's more than a master recorder as it can also be used as a clip player. The large search dial is perfect for scrolling through lots of media to find the clip you want to play. You get support for ProRes, DNx and H.264 files in NTSC, PAL, 720p and 1080p video formats. The HDMI connections allow connection to switchers, cameras and monitors. Plus SD cards, UHS-II cards and USB-C external disks can be used for recording and playing media. HyperDeck Shuttle HD uses the same design as ATEM Mini Extreme, so it's a perfect combination to use as a media player. It even has a built in teleprompter!
Elegantly Designed Professional Broadcast Deck
HyperDeck Shuttle HD is perfectly designed for the desktop. This means the front panel can be operated with a single hand! The gentle angle allows your hand to rest on the search dial, and the control buttons are positioned under your fingertips. The design is the same depth and angle as ATEM Mini Extreme, so they match perfectly when used together! Scrolling media is fast as the machined metal search dial has a natural inertia, and the soft rubber surface feels nice to the touch. That's perfect when you're searching through lots of media. Plus, the buttons are the same design as traditional broadcast decks. The rear panel includes all video, power, network and control connections.
Traditional Broadcast Deck Controls
HyperDeck Shuttle includes a control panel that's very fast to use. The buttons are similar to a traditional broadcast deck. Simply press the record button and you instantly start recording the video input to a file! It will record in the file format that has been set in the record menu. There are other buttons for playback, to cue to the start of the clip and to move to the next clip. The buttons have been custom designed by Blackmagic Design for the highest quality. The large machined metal search dial supports shuttle, jog and scroll so you can find clips fast. Plus all deck control functions can be triggered remotely using the Ethernet network.
Supports SD Cards and UHS-II Cards
HyperDeck Shuttle supports recording to common SD cards and UHS-II cards so you don't need expensive custom media. SD cards are the perfect choice for broadcast media because they are small and very affordable. Plus, you can even record to external USB disks! When using USB disks, if you use a USB hub, or Blackmagic MultiDock, you can even record on multiple disks for non stop recording! When using H.264, the files are so incredibly small you get very long recordings even on smaller low cost cards. This means you can record up to 157 hours of H.264 in 1080p59.94 on a 1 TB card. That's over 6 days of recording in HD using a single 1 TB card!
Record to External USB-C Media Disks
If recording to other types of media is required, the USB-C expansion port lets you plug in an external flash disk for recording. USB-C flash disks have unlimited capacity because they can be physically larger than an SD card or SSD. Plus, it's even possible to record to a disk array you'll use for editing, so you don't need to waste time copying files before starting post production. Just move the disk over to a computer and instantly start editing! You can even add a Blackmagic MultiDock 10G that has 4 separate SSD media slots, so you can add compatibility with SSD media to the HyperDeck Shuttle! There are also options for managing external disks in the settings menu.
Popular ProRes, DNx and H.264 Files
HyperDeck Shuttle HD supports the most popular codecs in use today! You get broadcast quality DNx and ProRes file formats. However you also get space saving H.264 when recording in NTSC, PAL, 720p, 1080p plus even true 1080i interlaced formats. That means you get tight 60:1 to 285:1 compression ratios for very small files at full broadcast quality. Plus you can choose uncompressed PCM audio, or even AAC audio when uploading files to YouTube. HyperDeck Shuttle HD supports both ExFAT used on Windows and HFS+ used on Mac disk formatting standards, so disks can be mounted and read on both platforms. You also get support for recording long duration events into a single video file.
Powerful Video and Control Connections
For such a small design, HyperDeck Shuttle has powerful connections. The HDMI input can be connected to cameras and switchers such as ATEM Mini, and the HDMI output can be connected to monitors for presentations or ATEM Mini switchers as a long form media player. Imagine playing commercials, promos or music videos into ATEM Mini switchers from HyperDeck Shuttle! The rear panel also includes a 12V DC power input and a power supply is included. The 1G Ethernet connection allows control and remote file uploads. The USB-C expansion port can be used to record to large external disks, for software updates or as a webcam output. The SD card slot supports both SD cards and UHS-II cards.
HDMI is Perfect for ATEM Mini Switchers
With built in HDMI input and output, you can connect to consumer cameras, monitors, televisions, video projectors and even ATEM Mini switchers! The HDMI connections will automatically switch video standards to handle both SD and HD equipment. SD formats include NTSC and PAL. 720p HD standards include 720p50 and 720p59.94. 1080i HD interlaced formats include 1080i50 and 1080i59.94. 1080p HD formats include 1080p23.98, 24, 25, 29.97, 30, 50, 59.94 and 60p. HyperDeck Shuttle can even support 1080 PsF formats!
With such a large search dial, HyperDeck Shuttle HD can be used as a teleprompter! Simply change to teleprompter in the record menu and it will read standard RTF text files as scripts. You don't need weird custom software as scripts can be written in simple text editors such as TextEdit. You can move between multiple scripts with the previous and next clip buttons. If you press both jog and scroll buttons, you can live scroll the script like a traditional teleprompter! Even the size, color, font weight and alignment will be read from the RTF script file. Best of all, you can write your scripts in standard 12 point size and HyperDeck will scale them up for the prompter display automatically.
Network File Transfers
HyperDeck Shuttle allows media files to be uploaded remotely, using simple FTP client software. With 1G Ethernet built into the HyperDeck Shuttle, file transfers are very fast, and sometimes faster than the SD card media disk! For remote deck control, all models use an easy to learn text based protocol, so you can use a simple terminal app like Telnet to test control commands. Simply log into the HyperDeck and then type "play" or "record" and it will execute the command. It's that simple! If you combine the control protocol and file transfers with a HyperDeck connected to a large USB-C disk array, you get a fantastic broadcast server for ingest, media management and play out.
Compatible with Switchers, Disk Docks and Cameras!
There's a wide range of Blackmagic Design products you can use with HyperDeck Shuttle HD, including switchers, cameras and streaming solutions! As HyperDeck Shuttle doesn't include SSD slots, you can add a Blackmagic MultiDock 10G to use regular SSDs, allowing compatibility with media from other HyperDeck models. HyperDeck Shuttle will manage multiple disks for you! HyperDeck Shuttle is also a perfect mastering recorder when used with ATEM switchers, because it has more record formats, plus it's a fantastic clip player for adding pre recorded clips into live production. When rendering playback files in software, just use ProRes, DNx or "H.264 main profile" formats.
