HyperDeck Studio HD Plus - re-encoding to H.264 for playback

PostSun Oct 03, 2021 4:32 pm

Is there any video software (re-encoding) to convert random video files to the H.264 format that would be reliably playable in the Hyperdeck Studio HD Plus??

I appreciate your input.

Bumping this as it'd be such a useful thing to be able to do. I sometimes have to feed A7siii rushes from an SNG truck but the camera will only play one clip at a time. I was hoping the HyperDeck would play the files but sadly not!

Video playout of externally encoded H.264 files is not well supported on the HyperDecks currently. For preparing external files for HyperDeck playout, you are better off using either ProRes or DNxHD as the codec as discussed in various previous threads about this:

If you need to batch convert a bunch of video files to ProRes, most of the major video editing suites have a way to do this. Such as the Media Management transcode page in DaVinci Resolve:

Or using Final Cut Pro or Apple Compressor on a Mac:

Using Adobe Media Encoder (included with Premiere):

The only HyperDeck that can do that now is the 4K Pro but BMD has promised a software update for all other recently announced HyperDeck HD models to have that capability as well.
