Multiview 4HD + UltraStudio Mini Recorder Combo

PostThu Feb 13, 2020 8:53 pm

I am a film/tv script supervisor here, & I’ve been using the Blackmagic Ultrastudio Mini Recorder to pull a monitor feed onto my MacBook Air (for convenience & screen grabs) while we film.

I’d like to add some multicam viewing capability to this setup, so that I can see everything at once when we’re shooting with more than one camera at a time. Most of my colleagues accomplish this with a switcher, but the limit is that I only get one feed at a time, which isn’t ideal.

The Blackmagic Multiview 4 HD seems to solve my problem—multiple cameras in, 1 feed out, I see everything at once. The concern comes with the sdi output—would this then have to go through the Mini Recorder as well, & would I end up trying to see all 4 feeds in that one little corner of the Media Express interface? Is there a better option out there?

Thanks in advance for any input you have!
