When you use Thunderbolt 3 computers and you need to hook them up to any type of video equipment so that you can build high-performance edit workstations or output broadcast graphics, this capture and playback unit makes everything from A to Z a whole lot simpler. This is a high-tech device that makes it easy for all houses of worship to get the professional results they want and deserve for all of their livestreaming and recording events.

Even better, it is made to be used with Mac, Windows, and Linux operating systems, so it is a very versatile machine indeed.
This is a very portable piece of equipment that isn’t filled with a lot of complicated and hard-to-understand buttons and ports but don’t let its simplicity fool you. This is still a device that can be used to capture in all formats up to 4K DCI at 60 FPS. If you use the 12-bit HDR feature, you can capture in all formats up to 4K DCI at 30 FPS. You can connect a keyboard and a mouse if you wish, and you even get a built-in SD card reader that gives you instant access to all of your camera media cards, which is a very convenient feature.
Priced at just under $1,000, the UltraStudio 4K Mini is compact enough to fit in a rack and can be used on your desktop as well. Some of its best features include:
