H.265 delivers amazing quality and is the compression standard for distributing Ultra HD content online. You can also use H.265 compression for SD and HD video giving you smaller files at higher quality than other compression formats. The built-in hardware encoder is designed to be upgradable so you get a future proof solution that can add new formats via software updates as they become available.
With UltraStudio you can connect to virtually any video device, including cameras, monitors and broadcast decks for frame accurate editing and recording!
