3D Capture and Playback for DeckLink HD Extreme 3D

Blackmagic Design has released a new software update for Media Express which brings 3D Capture and Playback support to the DeckLink HD Extreme 3D.

In this release is the DeckLink version 7.8 and Media Express version 2.2 software.  These releases include full 3D capture and playback support for HD Extreme 3D with Media Express. Our 3D support includes dual stream SDI capture and playback as well as a muxed HDMI output for monitoring in side by side, line by line, top and bottom or left eye/right eye 3D formats.

There are also new updates for Multibridge and Intensity. These updates include some performance improvements for CS5 with DVCPRO and P2 formats as well as some minor bug fixes.

The updates can be downloaded here.

In addition, the DeckLink manual has also been updated with information needed for 3D capture and playback support.  You’ll find the revised manual here:
