Hyperdeck Studio Mini - naming device and/or files

PostWed Feb 22, 2017 11:48 am

Hi Guys,
Just received the new Hyperdeck Studio Mini.. does anyone know if it's possible to assign the device a name, and/or, how to set the filenaming?
Previously we ran our ATEM to one of our Atmos recorders, and on the Atmos could a)name the unit itself so we knew which device was in use, and b)set the filenames to show the production, scene and shot numbers (with "Takes" incrementing automatically each time "record" was hit)
Is any of this possible on the Hyperdeck Studio Mini?
The BMPCC has a metadata option on the on-camera menu for this.. but can't see anything similar on the HSM...

There is no way to name/label the HSMs currently but we will log this as a feature request to the devs.

Cool- thanks :-)
Is there any way to set filenames (like the BMPCC Metadata menu item)

There is no way to rename files within the unit via FTP established connections.

I would like to second this request to have the ability to name recorders or have a more logical naming convention than just starting over from 0000 every time a card is formatted.

We have two decks and having the exact same file name is kind of insane. We manually rename it as soon as we copy the footage to our computer but this really leaves things open to a chance of error. If black magic advertses this as a solution for live recording with multiple camera ISOs... they really need to enable this feature of giving each recorder a name and each file a time stamp or custom name.

Agreed. There needs to be a way to set file names. Can be very confusing trying to find the correct files with multiple cards.
