Supported Capturing Devices


We recommend to provide a continuously stable signal during your capture processes, otherwise the ingest process may be interrupted and the captured files may not be usable. In order to stabilize the signal in advance (= before it is sent to the Video card input) please use a Audio/Video Frame Synchronizer.

This chapter contains a list of supported video devices to record in SD, HD or UHD. When using a Thunderbolt device from AJA or Blackmagic Design, please make sure that the speed of the Thunderbolt bus is 20 Gbit/s (i.e. Thunderbolt 2) or higher (i.e. Thunderbolt 3). This is especially important when recording in UHD.
