Blackmagic Design DeckLink Cards Enable Softron MovieRecorder to Capture from Two Video Sources on a Single Mac Pro

(October 20, 2008)

Blackmagic Design Inc. today announced that its popular range of DeckLink cards are the only video capture cards available to enable two Softron MovieRecorder applications running on a single MacPro(tm) workstation to simultaneously capture video from two different sources. Using a MacPro coupled with two DeckLink cards and two applications of Softron MovieRecorder significantly enhances any facility's ingest capabilities.
"MovieRecorder greatly enhances any facility's ingest capabilities and does so at an incredibly low infrastructure investment, in many instances, using available hardware," said Mike Skibra, Softron Media Services, Business Development Manager. "This is because a single MacPro workstation, coupled with two DeckLink cards and two applications of MovieRecorder, running in a shared storage environment, can give multiple users access to the recording station and the recorded media without the need to purchase additional hardware devices at significantly higher cost."
MovieRecorder is used in numerous facilities around the world ranging from news and sports broadcasters, educational institutions, religious broadcasters and post production facilities.

"Professionals at every level are going to love the fact that they can use their DeckLink card with MovieRecorder to simultaneously capture video from two different sources," said Dan May, President, Blackmagic Design, Inc. "We are very pleased to support such a versatile and powerful application as MovieRecorder, making available another excellent tool to facilitate our customers' creativity and production."
