SLow Motion Playback with Hyperdeck

PostTue Oct 28, 2014 3:18 pm

I am a video assist operator.
Can I playback at slow motion using the hyperdeck?
If it requires using the shuttle knob is that something that can be set and then I can release the knob or do I have to hold the knob?

For example if they want to see a clip played back as half speed can I hit play, turn the knob to engage half speed playback and then set the clip to loop and walk away or do I have to sit there and hold the knob?

If slow motion playback is possible is it variable or set speeds like x1/2 x1/4 etc. How do I access these playback speeds?

Thanks!

Slow motion playback is possible using a standard RS422 controller. I wouldn't do it using the knob on the front even though it is a combo jog/shuttle knob like most VTR's have. Note however, that once you go into playback mode, all recording stops, so it's not useable to cue up clips to replay while continuing to record the live shot.

Hi Nick,

we've developed a software with which you can set the playback-speed to any value between -1600 and +1600%. You can download a trial-version from our website - please sent me a message, because i can't post urls ... Other functionality is also given like direct clip selection, scroll through clips, ...

The next step we will add is the cooperation between Hyperdeck and Atem-Switcher to have a easy to use solution for playing back, switching and so on ...

Hi Nick

A software solution has already been mentioned - it's excellent with so many developers out there creating stuff for the BMD hardware.

If you however would prefer a hardware panel with Hyperdeck control and easy selection of slowmotion then have a look at our webpage. We control all parameters of the BMD switchers and Hyperdecks with our hardware interfaces.

So for instance you could imagine having some dedicated buttons for Hyperdeck control (forward/backwards etc). When you have found your desired play point, you select your slow speed, and the program could automatically switch to the input from the Hyperdeck - and when pressing stop, switching back to the previous selected source.
Anyway - that's just one way of going about it. You'll find contact information at our website.

This is going to be great if it works well. Other solutions for instant replay and slow motion is pricey. Is this with any model?

Hi Uwe Beck,
You can send us a link to a demo version or a brochure to see how it works.

Probably in this time you have also improved your software.

Hello, I’m Anett from Berlin and I’m a multi camera live editor. I had the same problem: how to generate slow motions for sport streaming events?
Together with Nina, an IT specialist für iOS devices, we developed an app to control up to 4 Blackmagic Hyperdecks as a SlowMotion system.
I used it in many live productions, with cameras using synchronized timecode and cameras using no timecode. For cameras with timecode the app provides more functionality.
HyperSlow for iOS supports functions like record, playback with different speeds and tagging. A “SuperPlay” function allows to play back a scene in slow motion from different camera angles one after the other, given that the cameras use synchronized timecode.
We developed and tested the app over the last 12 months and improved it from event to event.
You can learn more about the app on liveskills.net.
Characteristics of HyperSlow:
• Connect Hyperdecks with an iPad using Wi-Fi or a separate LAN and start recording simultaneously
• Use 4 “event keys” to tag important moments in the time line and playback all decks synchronously
• In record mode the key “Stop Reverse” allows to jump before a tagged event to start play back in slow motion. The jump time can be freely defined.
• Use normal SlowMotion playback to play the same scene synchronous from all connected decks. Therefore you can switch on your live switcher from one camera angle to another in the continuous scene.
• Use “SuperPlay” to automatically play back slow motions sequentially from different angles. You need timecode synchronized cameras to use this feature.
• Use HyperSlow to create a list of custom events, store them and export them with the respective timecodes as Excel file.
• Reach good slow motion results with image rates of 50/60 fps and playback speed of 50%. Acceptable results are still possible with 25% play back speed.
As “HyperSlow” cannot play back and record at the same time, you may need another Hyperdeck or recording device to continue recording the video signal while playing back slow motion material.

Prices and availability:
HyperSlow can be downloaded in Apple’s AppStore here: https://itunes.apple.com/de/app/hyperslow/id1147161413
Blackmagic Atem 1M/E, 4x Hyperdeck, SmartScope, Videohub, Decklink Extreme, Micro Studio Camera
