Blackmagic Design HyperDeck Extreme Control gives you traditional deck control features with a built in editor for automating the ingest of legacy videotape based programming. Combined with HyperDeck Extreme, you get a professional deck solution that’s exciting and fast to use. There are transport control buttons, timecode, deck status, plus a large search dial with electronic clutch for jog, shuttle and positioning. Controlling up to 8 separate decks is possible using standard RS‑422 ensuring compatibility with virtually any type of deck! It’s even possible to edit between different video standards, so you can up convert old 4:3 interlaced SD masters to 1080p HD in 16:9 via a Teranex Express converter.
Between Tape and HyperDeck
The built in editor allows deck to deck editing. Operating the same way as traditional decks, the controller can operate both the HyperDeck recorder and the legacy broadcast deck all from the same front panel. This allows editing of old videotape simply by selecting the player button and entering in and out points on the tape and then selecting the recorder and pressing edit. The HyperDeck Extreme Control will now cue and play the broadcast deck while recording on the HyperDeck. Often streaming services need 1080p24 masters. That’s easy as it’s possible to add an inline Teranex Express converter to de-interlace, up convert, aspect ratio convert and remove pulldown while editing.
Control Up to 8 Broadcast Decks
The top of the HyperDeck Extreme Control includes a row of 8 buttons for the recorder selection and a row of 8 buttons for the player selection. There’s a built in remote control router that makes multi deck work possible. The connections are all standard RS-422 control so each device can be plugged into one of 8 rear mounted RS-422 sockets. You can even use the 8 ports to control 8 HyperDecks! The RS-422 control has been tested to ensure compatibly with legacy broadcast decks such as the BVH-2000 series 1 inch C format machines, D2, Betacam SP and Digital Betacam broadcast decks.
Familiar Broadcast VTR Style Design
The transport controls are a hybrid of controls from HyperDeck as well as traditional decks. You get buttons for rewind, fast forward, stop, play and record. To protect videotape masters, recording requires pressing both REC and PLAY! There's an eject button for ejecting cassettes, an input button for changing EE/PB modes plus a pre-roll button for cueing the tape.
Traditional and Elegant Transport Controls
You get familiar transport controls, such as PLAY, which when pressed during a recording, will cause the recording to stop and then the deck will continue to play from the same point. To start a recording, press both the REC and PLAY button simultaneously. If you hold down the REC button while a HyperDeck is in record it will change cards! When either REW or F FWD is pressed, the deck will shuttle reverse or forward at the maximum rate. The search direction indicator will also show full speed shuttle. Available when used with HyperDeck, the SKIP REW and SKIP FWD buttons will move to the previous clip or the next clip in the recording.
