You get 6G-SDI for recording all formats up to 2160p30, dual SD card slots for non-stop recording, a built in LCD screen and familiar VTR style front panel controls, all in a design that can be used on the desktop or in â…“ of a standard rack space! HyperDeck Studio Mini also features 720p and 1080p 4:4:4:4 file support with fill and key outputs so it can be used as source to provide broadcast graphics to live production switchers for downstream keying over live video.

The advanced miniaturized design of HyperDeck Studio Mini puts the powerful features of a professional grade deck into a compact size that’s only 76cm wide and 1.5 inches tall. This incredible miniaturization is made possible because HyperDeck Studio Mini records onto inexpensive, commonly available SD cards, which are a fraction of the size of SSD’s and other professional media. The design is based on the Teranex Mini form factor, making it modular so customers can mount HyperDeck Studio Mini using the optional Teranex Mini Rack Shelf and combine it with other products to create a completely customized deck based on their workflow.


HyperDeck Studio Mini features the highest quality 6G-SDI connections, compatible with all SD, HD and Ultra HD equipment and formats up to 2160p30. It also includes reference input as well as a reference output with a built in sync generator, and an HDMI output for connecting to big screen televisions and projectors. The Dual Link SDI outputs can be used to output separate fill and key when operating in HD formats and playing back RGBA ProRes files that include an alpha channel. Fill and key output are designed to let customers send graphics with alpha channel out to a switcher for downstream keying over live video. HyperDeck Studio Mini also has an RS-422 connection for deck control, Ethernet for uploading files to the deck via FTP, and a built in 100V - 240V AC international power supply with standard IEC connector so it can be used anywhere in the world.
