San Jose, CA, USA – June 30, 2009 – Blackmagic Design Inc. today released support for software developers who want to use DeckLink, Intensity and Multibridge products on the Linux platform.
Support includes the software driver and an SDK for developers, and can be downloaded now from the Blackmagic Design web site, free of charge.
All developers now have a full featured Software Developer Kit (SDK) that allows any software developer to build custom Linux solutions. With products such as Blackmagic Designâ€™s DeckLink SDI at only US$295, customers now have a true 10 bit SD and HD-SDI capture and playback solution with tri-sync/black burst reference, low SDI jitter and RS-422 deck control thatâ€™s extremely affordable. When combined with low cost PC hardware, Linux developers now have everything they need to build high end broadcast solutions.
â€œUsing the Blackmagic DeckLink Linux SDK, we’ve been able to quickly add SD and HD-SDI capture to our web-based video editing platform, FORscene,â€? said Jeremy James, Forbidden Technologies plc. â€œThe affordable DeckLink SDI will allow us to offer integration without requiring unnecessary hardware features or external converters.â€?
