USB Video Recorder Software

PostWed Feb 03, 2021 1:56 pm

Hi All

I'm killing time in lockdown messing about with some old kit. One of the things I have is a BlackMagic Design USB Video Recorder.


It is identified by Media Express and I can see by looking at its manual that it came with its own/different software. Is it still available anywhere?

Scroll down to 09 July, 2012 on the official Support page and you'll find the software hiding next to the other Peking Zombies.

Good Luck

It's a shame this beautiful device (it even has component video input) has no support anymore, (on Linux maybe?) an alternative would be an Intensity device from BMD, but aslo these devices need research, if they are still supported on the newer OS's and MAC/PC hardware....
