Which Expansion Box for DeckLink Quad-2 ?

PostSun Oct 15, 2017 8:04 pm

Hi. I have the BlackMagic Design DeckLink Quad 2 8-Channel 3G-SDI Capture & Playback Card. I'm trying to find the smallest, most compact Single Slot External Expansion box that will fit this half size card. This box should be the thinnest possible with no extra baggage, bells and whistles that make most boxes so big. Oh, and it must also have an USB-c (USB 3.1) output to connect to my Windows PC laptop's USB-c's input. I can't fins these anywhere?

Euhhh.. I don't think this will going to work.. USB-C will not carry 8 channels of HD to my knowlage..

Most heavy duty gaming Desktop rigs already hae issues with the lane speeds of this card.. So doing this to a laptop would be ambitious..
