Blackmagic Design has announced DaVince Resolve 18, Blackmagic Cloud Store, HyperDeck Shuttle HD, and more. Following are “snapshots” of the company’s press releases:
° DaVinci Resolve 18 (free; public beta available now for download from the Blackmagic Design website): A major new cloud collaboration update which allows multiple editors, colorists, VFX artists and audio engineers to work simultaneously on the same project, on the same timeline, anywhere in the world. DaVinci Resolve 18 supports the Blackmagic Cloud for hosting and sharing projects, as well as a new DaVinci proxy workflow. This update also includes new Resolve FX AI tools powered by the DaVinci Neural Engine, as well as time saving tools for editors, Fairlight legacy fixed bus to FlexBus conversion, GPU accelerated paint in Fusion, and more.
° Blackmagic Cloud Store (from $9,595; available Q2 2022): A new extremely high performance network storage solution with four 10G Ethernet connections and a parallel memory core that can sustain maximum possible transfer speeds on each 10G Ethernet port, all at the same time.
° Blackmagic Cloud Store Mini ($2,995; available now): A new network storage solution with the high performance of 4 M.2 flash memory in a RAID 0 configuration. With its built in 10G Ethernet, the Blackmagic Cloud Store Mini is extremely fast so it allows multiple users to collaborate on video editing in software such as DaVinci Resolve. Plus with Dropbox sync, multiple units can be synchronized across different geographic locations.
° Blackmagic Cloud Pod ($395; available now): Use any USB-C disk as network storage. The Blackmagic Cloud Pod means customers can build their own network storage using USB-C flash disks they already own. Features include high speed 10G Ethernet and Dropbox sync, so customers can cache files locally and share them with everyone on their network. Blackmagic Cloud Pod even includes an HDMI monitoring output for a real time view of the network storage status.
° HyperDeck Extreme 4K HDR ($2,995; available April 2022): A new broadcast deck with advanced H.265 4K recording featuring a touch screen user interface with built in scopes and HDR screen.
° HyperDeck Shuttle HD ($495; available now): A new recorder/player that’s designed for use on the desktop as an on demand media player. This new model supports recording and playback for ProRes, DNx and H.264 files as well as PCM or AAC audio. The unique design is dominated by a large metal search dial and traditional broadcast deck controls, so it’s easy to quickly scroll through media. It even has a built in teleprompter! HyperDeck Shuttle uses HDMI connections so it’s the perfect solution for use with ATEM Mini switchers.
