Blackmagic Design announced UltraStudio Mini Monitor and UltraStudio Mini Recorder,
two new capture and playback solutions featuring 3 Gb/s SDI and HDMI connections
plus high speed Thunderbolt technology, at the recent IBC in Amsterdam.
UltraStudio Mini Monitor and UltraStudio Mini Recorder are extremely portable, pocket-
sized products powered by their Thunderbolt connections so they can be operated

UltraStudio Mini Recorder for great quality, at the lowest possible price.
