Featuring 4 independent 3G-SDI connections, DeckLink Duo 2 is a PCIe capture and playback card that supports SDI formats in SD and HD up to 1080p60. You get the flexibility of 4 separate capture or playback cards in one. Plus, it’s completely customizable so it’s perfect for media play-out systems, multi screen digital signage servers, real time multi channel capture systems and more.

DeckLink Duo 2 solves the problem of developers who want to design multi channel HD systems with one simple card. This new model also handles 3G-SDI so it supports high HD frame rates up to 1080p60 on each channel all at the same time.

DeckLink Duo 2 does this because while the old model was 2 channels, this new model actually has 4 completely separate channels in one card. The 2 extra channels are normally hidden, but can be turned on when needed by the software developer or in the DeckLink control panel. It uses the same Blackmagic Design Desktop Video SDK so if you have any of our other capture cards then this new model will just work.
