Dramatically improve the quality of professional or consumer cameras! HyperDeck Shuttle gives you the quality of uncompressed recording direct to common low cost SSDs in the smallest possible size! HyperDeck Shuttle is small, affordable and battery powered so it’s perfect as a field recorder. HyperDeck Shuttle bypasses your camera’s compression and records from SDI and HDMI direct into the highest quality uncompressed video. SSDs are cheap and fast, so you can edit directly from the SSD media itself. Only SSDs eliminate time wasting file copying! Only $345.

Compression destroys image quality and even high-end cameras compress images. Now you will never compromise quality because you can bypass the camera compression to get perfect uncompressed 10-bit SD/HD video. That’s even higher quality than broadcast decks! Create the sharpest VFX plates for match moving, compositing and more. Get deep dynamic color range for color correction and do perfect, clean keying without jagged edges caused by compression. Even on shots like flyaway hair and multi-colored patterns. Now quality won’t limit your creativity!

Simply plug in a 2.5” solid state disk into HyperDeck Shuttle and you get video recording with blazing fast speed, low power consumption and totally silent operation. Now you can eliminate complicated and expensive disk arrays. A single SSD can record uncompressed video effortlessly! Removable media like CF and SxS cards simply cannot match that kind of performance and require slow file copying to use.

With SDI and HDMI inputs and outputs, HyperDeck Shuttle works with virtually every camera, deck or monitor! Effortlessly plug into monitors or televisions for instant on set preview. Use HyperDeck Shuttle as the video playback source for digital signage systems or switchers. Imagine using HyperDeck Shuttle connected to a live production switcher for recording events, and then using it for live playback! HyperDeck Shuttle can do almost anything and it’s so small you’ll take it everywhere!


Having been working in the video business since 1988 I have amassed a great amount of knowledge of both the kit and production values over the last 30 years.

  1. Amazing product at an amazing price, yes. BUT…our workflow, and so many others’ workflows, revolve around ProRes. I don’t want to capture uncompressed. It eats up way too much space, and is generally unnecessary. I’m interested, but not until some flavor of ProRes is added.

  2. Why be locked into one NLE or color grading system with a proprietary codec that could become obsolete at any time? HyperDeck Shuttle captures universally compatible uncompressed QuickTime files that can be used with all popular software packages like Final Cut Pro, Premiere Pro, After Effects, Resolve and Apple Color, both now and well into the future. You’re always free to use the editing, color correction and finishing tools that you choose, and that are best for your clients and your jobs. That’s a true open format!

  3. Hmmm… why not use Log and Transfer to capture in ProRes? Your master footage will be uncompressed, sure. But so what?

  4. Because storage space and time to transfer is always at a premium on set. Almost all of the other recorders being shown at NAB have a selectable format. I’m not saying ProRes only, I’m saying ProRes option.

  5. Totally agree with Graham. Uncompressed is a good option but eats too much storage space. It’s not a good editing format too for me. Could be very interesting only if they add ProRes options even if it will be more expensive.

  6. I’m with the others. Give me a ProRes option and I will be the first in line to buy. Neat product and great price though!

  7. I don’t want ProRes even as an option if I have to foot the bill for ProRes addition, I use PC based NLE workflow, which suits me well. Thank you Blackmagic-design. I’m going to buy it as soon as it is available.

  8. $345 and $999 that’s great. However, what is the cost of the disk and how long will it record?

    After a quick search the largest I found was a 240GB for $535. So would that be 24 min of recording time?

    I’ve heard about ssd up a terabyte. Any info on where these can be purchased and the cost would be appreciated.

  9. I understand for Prores but as you know now, Final cut X will get rid of intermediate format to use any native format. Pro Res can be used with Premiere Pro to your editing but not on the export side. Of course it spend a lot of disk space and SSD are still expensive. I’m using Premiere Pro wich is a great product working natively with any footage in 64 bits and Hyperdeck will help me for short green screen shooting in order for me to avoid internal AVCHD compression of my NX5 NXCAM. Maybe Pro res can be an alternative way to make everybody happy.Personnaly, I don’t matter with Premiere Pro…Question, I can’t see any hole for mounting on a camera, How can I put this deck on a cam ? What about informations for disk space remain ?
