BlackMagic H.264 Pro Recorder client feedback

August 25, 2011 Leave a comment

Last week one of our clients came into Key Code Media Burbank to do some testing with the H.264 Pro Recorder from Black Magic.

“There’s a lot to like about this but some trade offs.  I like it’s the size of a turkey sandwich.  with low power, low heat, no noise.  great option for our application which would live at someone’s desk.

The real time h264 looked pretty good.  we noticed some compression glitches when capturing with the “native” profile.

No ability to customize an encoding profile and very limited options in a drop down.  the box does not make any changes to the geometry, cropping, interlacing, etc.   Also doesn’t allow any change in audio settings other than selection of the embedded channels to capture.   So if you feed it 1280×720 HD-SDI, you get a 1280×720 h264, if you feed it 720×480 SDI, you get 720×480 h264.

Definitely not a replacement for a fully featured capture/encoding platform but for certain singular uses like this one, might fit the bill nicely.”
