Blackmagic Design announced Desktop Video 10.6.4. Update which adds support for HDR playback over HDMI to UltraStudio 4K Extreme and DeckLink 4K Extreme 12G. Blackmagic Design demonstrated Desktop Video 10.6.4 at NAB 2016.
Desktop Video 10.6.4 Update adds playback support for HDR content over HDMI to UltraStudio 4K Extreme and DeckLink 4K Extreme 12G. The new HDR features include HDR metadata transport and support for the Rec. 2020 color space over HDMI. This means customers now get full support for monitoring on HDR capable displays using a single HDMI cable, making it ideal for editor and colorists working on HDR projects with DaVinci Resolve 12.5.
HDR, which stands for high dynamic range, is part of the new Ultra HD Premium standard so customers can now get big screen, low cost consumer televisions that support a massive range of color, peak brightness of up to 1,000 nits, which is 10 times brighter than most HDTVs, and incredible contrast ratio.
This means that colorists and editors working in DaVinci Resolve 12.5 with UltraStudio 4K Extreme or DeckLink 4K Extreme 12G will now be able to monitor images that are more true to life and more closely resemble the color and dynamic range of the latest cinema technology.
