V4HD — HD and SD video I/O for Mac and Windows

Final Cut Pro

New support for Apple ProRes 422

The V4HD builds on the award-winning V3HD by adding support for full-raster 1920 x 1080 HD capture and playback using Apple's ProRes 422 codec 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 in HD and SD simultaneously via the V4HD's hardware-accelerated up- and down-conversion.

The V4HD is the ideal all-in-one video capture solution for your Apple ProRes workflow.

Hardware-accelerated DVCProHD

The V4HD also offers hardware-accelerated DVCProHD capture and playback from Final Cut.

Other workflows

In full-raster mode, the V4HD also allows you to capture and play HD material using any full-raster video format supported by Final Cut Pro with an 8-bit or 10-bit 4:2:2 color space and a compression ratio similar to ProRes (approximately 6:1 or greater).

Designed for Final Cut Pro

Using the V4HD with Final Cut Pro couldn't be easier. The V4HD 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 V4HD takes full advantage of Final Cut Pro'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 V4HD provides up to 24 simultaneous channels of audio capture and playback with Final Cut Pro in any of four support audio formats: analog, AES/EBU, optical and embedded.
