UltraStudio 3D is a professional video-editing solution using Thunderbolt technology to connect Apple video-editing workstations to various video devices. It allows for the capture and playback of uncompressed video material at speeds of up to 10 GB/s. The portable compact device has an aluminium body and employs a discreet thermal management system on the bottom side, leaving the top surface free of unsightly vent holes. Delicate, high-speed SDI video connectors are elegantly recessed and protected during transport. The non-slip silicon base ensures stability on the desktop even when heavy broadcast cables are connected during use.
