The Shuttle HD runs Blackmagic OS, supports ProRes and DNx file formats, and it is compatible with a wide range of editing software such as Premiere Pro, Avid, and DaVinci Resolve, and it can also be used to stream H.264 video to streaming services such as YouTube or Vimeo.
It can be used to record video using its SD card slot or USB Type-C output to an optional drive, or you can connect to the Blackmagic MultiDock to record to multiple SSDs.
The Ethernet port provides external control and file transfers over a network.
With support for H.264, ProRes, and DNx files, you can record true broadcast masters. You can even select between PCM or AAC audio. That’s great for higher-quality mastering when used with ATEM Mini switchers. You get everything needed to send shows to broadcasters and for uploading to streaming services like YouTube.
The large search dial lets you visually browse your clip library, then you can use the previous clip button to cue the start of the clip. After playing, you can use the clip button to stop the playback at the end of the clip. ATEM switchers can even remote control HyperDeck Shuttle via Ethernet.
Traditional Broadcast Deck Controls
HyperDeck Shuttle includes a control panel that’s very fast to use, and 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. 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 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 drives via USB Type-C. When using USB disks, if you use a USB hub or Blackmagic MultiDock, you can even record on multiple disks for nonstop recording. When using H.264, the files are so 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 1TB card.
Popular ProRes, DNx, and H.264 Files
HyperDeck Shuttle HD supports the most popular codecs in use today, including broadcast-quality DNx and ProRes file formats. 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 macOS disk formatting standards, so disks can be mounted and read on both platforms. It also supports recording long-duration events into a single video file.
Video and Control 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. The rear panel also includes a 12 VDC power input and a power supply is included. The 1 Gigabit Ethernet connection allows control and remote file uploads.
HDMI Compatibility with 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.
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 like scripts, without the need for custom software. 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, as well as adjust the size and font displayed.
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.
Compatible with Software and Streaming Sites
HyperDeck Shuttle HD records files that are compatible with virtually all post-production software. Plus if you record in H.264, you can upload files from HyperDeck Shuttle direct to streaming services such as YouTube, Facebook, Vimeo, and Twitter. You can use popular editing software such as DaVinci Resolve, Apple Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere Pro, or Avid Media Composer because HyperDeck uses the same file formats used in post-production. Even VFX software such as Fusion and Adobe After Effects work with the files. Because HyperDeck records to disks formatted on computers, you can simply mount the disk on any computer and start editing without needing to copy files.
Compatible with Switchers, Disk Docks, and Cameras
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, and 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 great clip player for adding pre-recorded clips into live production.
