Blackmagic Design

today announced the immediate availability of

DeckLink 7.3

with loads of features for the video professional. DeckLink 7.3 is a free update and available for download now to all DeckLink customers for Windows, Mac OS X 10.6 and now Linux.

DeckLink 7.3 will be demonstrated on the Blackmagic Design IBC 2009 stand located at #7.D08

Included in this software release is Media Express 2.0 public beta which is a major update with DPX support, playlists and an easy to use interface that’s identical between Mac OS X, Windows and Linux platforms. Now Blackmagic Design’s DeckLink cards can be plugged into either of these three computer platforms to allow a total solution for capture and playback of media.

Intensity and Multibridge installers have also been updated to include the new Media Express 2.0.

For customers using advanced 1080 progressive HD video standards, DeckLink 7.3 updates the software in the DeckLink HD Extreme 3 model with full support for 1080p50, 1080p59.94 and 1080p60. This works in both Dual Link 1.5 Gb/s HD-SDI as well as single link 3 Gb/s SDI. For monitoring, HDLink Pro models have also been updated to support the new progressive video formats, and this software update is available now.
