Great Quality up to 1080p@60fps.

You cannot add more than two on the same computer. At the moment it does not support TB hubs/docks.

Excellent unit that compliments system very well
SteveS1994, 16.10.2020
The has been an excellent purchase for us for recording and producing online.
Well made and good quality product that compliments the rest of the system that we have. Operates well with the BM Atem Studio unit which in turn is run off an iMac.

The ability the take the signal in through thunderbolt allows greater control of latency issues that have been experienced with other products, allowing media and audio to be brought into the iMac together.

Geniales kleines Kästchen
Mike GT, 14.01.2021
Hallo zusammen,
um es nochmal vorweg zu nehmen - diese ultraportable kleine Box ist schlicht genial. Verwandelt sie doch ein Gerät mit Thunderbolt 3 Schnittstelle (die muss es sein) in einen vollwertigen digitalen Videorecorder!
Persönlich verwende ich das Teil in Multimediaproduktionen zum Capturing direkt vom Camera-Sensor - und das funktioniert bestens!
Beim Setup muss man lediglich darauf achten, das "Desktop Video Setup" aufzurufen - und die gewünschte Schnittstelle der Box zu wählen, sonst bleibt der Screen schwarz ;-).
Mittels Blackmagic Media Express ist das Capturing dann ein reines Kinderspiel!

Für Apple User interessant:
Ich verwende das Ultrastudio mit dem neuesten Apple MacBook Pro - mit M1 Chip! Das Ganze natürlich auf BigSur 11.1. - Tatsächlich funktioniert die aktuelle Blackmagic Software (unbedingt ab 12.0 Beta verwenden für M1) schon recht gut und stabil.
Einzig das Capture Vorschaufenster ist (manchmal - bei bestimmten Auflösungen - da bin ich noch nicht dahinter gekommen...) streifig. Dies wirkt sich aber nicht auf den Capture Stream auf - also für Beta noch okay. Hier einen Punktabzug zu geben fände ich unfair, denn mit einem "alten" MacBook klappt das problemlos - und immerhin reden wir hier über die neueste HW/SW von Apple - Gratulation, dass das überhaupt schon so toll klappt!

Das trifft auch für das DaVinci Resove Paket zu - perfekte Performance auch auf BigSur mit M1 - Chapeau an Blackmagic Design!

Und da sich der Preis des Recorder 3G fast schon im Bereich eines TB3 Kabels bewegt, darf man nicht böse sein, dass selbiges nicht mitgeliefert wird. Kabel hat man ja sowieso :-) - und bei Thomann findet man ja jede erdenkliche Variante dazu. Also ggf gleich mit bestellen, wenn nicht vorhanden!
