HDX-SDI — SDI / HDMI / Analog video interface with Thunderbolt™ technology

Final Cut Pro

The HDX-SDI unleashes Final Cut Pro on today's latest Thunderbolt-equipped MacBook Pros and the new Mac Pro cylinder. You get broadcast-quality monitoring for Final Cut Pro X, and both capture and playback for Final Cut Pro 7 running on Mavericks.

Apple ProRes 422 standard and HQ

The HDX-SDI with Thunderbolt technology supports full-raster 1920 x 1080 HD workflows in Final Cut Pro 7 (capture and monitoring) and Final Cut Pro X (monitoring only) using Apple's ProRes codecs in both standard and HQ modes. Ingest any uncompressed SDI or component HD source and then capture and edit in ProRes while monitoring your ProRes timeline.

The HDX-SDI is the ideal all-in-one video capture solution for your Apple ProRes workflow.

Other workflows

Because it delivers uncompressed HD and SD video to and from the computer, the HDX-SDI also allows you to capture and play HD material using any full-raster video format supported by Final Cut Pro, such as XDCAM.

Designed for Final Cut Pro

Using the HDX-SDI with Final Cut Pro couldn't be easier. The HDX-SDI software installer provides Easy Setup presets, Sequence presets, Capture presets and Device Control presets to get you going quickly. In minutes, you'll be ready to log and capture, edit and monitor your project material.

Device control

The HDX-SDI takes full advantage of Final Cut Pro 7's device control features via Sony 9-pin device control for batch capture, print to video and edit to tape operations.

Audio I/O

The HDX-SDI provides up to 16 simultaneous channels of audio capture and playback with Final Cut Pro in any of three supported audio formats: analog, AES/EBU digital, and embedded (SDI and HDMI).
