Blackmagic Design HyperDeck Shuttle HD
The desktop HyperDeck that’s the perfect live production clip player and master recorder!
HyperDeck Shuttle HD is a recorder and player that’s designed to be used on the desktop! That means it’s more than a master recorder as it can also be used as a clip player. The large search dial is perfect for scrolling through lots of media to find the clip you want to play. You get support for ProRes, DNx and H.264 files in NTSC, PAL, 720p and 1080p video formats. The HDMI connections allow connection to switchers, cameras and monitors. Plus SD cards, UHS-II cards and USB-C external disks can be used for recording and playing media. HyperDeck Shuttle HD uses the same design as ATEM Mini Extreme, so it’s a perfect combination to use as a media player. It even has a built in teleprompter!
Elegantly Designed Professional Broadcast Deck
HyperDeck Shuttle HD is perfectly designed for the desktop. This means the front panel can be operated with a single hand! The gentle angle allows your hand to rest on the search dial, and the control buttons are positioned under your fingertips. The design is the same depth and angle as ATEM Mini Extreme, so they match perfectly when used together! Scrolling media is fast as the machined metal search dial has a natural inertia, and the soft rubber surface feels nice to the touch. That’s perfect when you’re searching through lots of media. Plus, the buttons are the same design as traditional broadcast decks. The rear panel includes all video, power, network and control connections.
Perfect for Live Production Mastering and Clip Playback
With support for H.264, ProRes and DNx files, you can record true broadcast masters! You can even select between PCM or AAC audio. That’s perfect for higher quality mastering when used with ATEM Mini switchers. You get everything needed to send shows to broadcasters and for uploading to YouTube.
The large search dial lets you visually browse your clip library. Then you can use the previous clip button to cue to the start of the clip. After playing, you can use the clip button to stop the playback at the end of the clip. ATEM switchers can even remote control HyperDeck Shuttle via Ethernet!
Traditional Broadcast Deck Controls
HyperDeck Shuttle includes a control panel that’s very fast to use. The buttons are similar to a traditional broadcast deck. Simply press the record button and you instantly start recording the video input to a file! It will record in the file format that has been set in the record menu. There are other buttons for playback, to cue to the start of the clip and to move to the next clip. The buttons have been custom designed by Blackmagic Design for the highest quality. The large machined metal search dial supports shuttle, jog and scroll so you can find clips fast. Plus all deck control functions can be triggered remotely using the Ethernet network.
When pressing the menu button, the settings menu will appear overlaid on the video output. The button is recessed so it’s not accidentally pressed! This menu is where you set the record codec.
The record button starts recording in the codec set in the record menu at the HDMI input television standard. It makes recording as easy as pressing a button! This button is also an input switch.
The media status lights show the status of the SD card and USB media disks. The lights are red when recording and green when playing back. The stop button will flash when the disks are almost full!
Next and Previous Clip
The previous and next clip buttons make it fast to move up and down clips. You can use the previous clip button to cue to the start of the current clip. That ensures the clip is ready to play on air.
Jog and Shuttle
The jog button allows a slow scroll, perfect when cueing to a specific frame. Press both jog and scroll buttons to change the search dial to shuttle mode. Shuttle even allows slow motion replay!
The scroll lets you quickly scroll up and down large amounts of media with the search dial. This lets you browse media visually, so it’s fast. Pressing scroll lets you navigate down folder levels.
The clip button allows you to play clips without running off the end to the next clip. When enabled, it stops playback at the end of the current clip. It can also be used to navigate back in scroll.
Play and Stop
The main playback controls are play and stop. Pressing play more than once will loop playback of all clips. If the clip button is selected, play or loop play will be limited to the current clip.
The search dial makes it easy to access your media. The extremely smooth design is machined metal with dual bearings. It works with the jog and scroll buttons, or if both are pressed, you get shuttle.
Supports SD Cards and UHS-II Cards
HyperDeck Shuttle supports recording to common SD cards and UHS-II cards so you don’t need expensive custom media. SD cards are the perfect choice for broadcast media because they are small and very affordable. Plus, you can even record to external USB disks! When using USB disks, if you use a USB hub, or Blackmagic MultiDock, you can even record on multiple disks for non stop recording! When using H.264, the files are so incredibly small you get very long recordings even on smaller low cost cards. This means you can record up to 157 hours of H.264 in 1080p59.94 on a 1 TB card. That’s over 6 days of recording in HD using a single 1 TB card!
Record to External USB-C Media Disks
If recording to other types of media is required, the USB-C expansion port lets you plug in an external flash disk for recording. USB-C flash disks have unlimited capacity because they can be physically larger than an SD card or SSD. Plus, it’s even possible to record to a disk array you’ll use for editing, so you don’t need to waste time copying files before starting post production. Just move the disk over to a computer and instantly start editing! You can even add a Blackmagic MultiDock 10G that has 4 separate SSD media slots, so you can add compatibility with SSD media to the HyperDeck Shuttle! There are also options for managing external disks in the settings menu.
Popular ProRes, DNx and H.264 Files!
HyperDeck Shuttle HD supports the most popular codecs in use today! You get broadcast quality DNx and ProRes file formats. However you also get space saving H.264 when recording in NTSC, PAL, 720p, 1080p plus even true 1080i interlaced formats. That means you get tight 60:1 to 285:1 compression ratios for very small files at full broadcast quality. Plus you can choose uncompressed PCM audio, or even AAC audio when uploading files to YouTube. HyperDeck Shuttle HD supports both ExFAT used on Windows and HFS+ used on Mac disk formatting standards, so disks can be mounted and read on both platforms. You also get support for recording long duration events into a single video file.

Built In Teleprompter
With such a large search dial, HyperDeck Shuttle HD can be used as a teleprompter! Simply change to teleprompter in the record menu and it will read standard RTF text files as scripts. You don’t need weird custom software as scripts can be written in simple text editors such as TextEdit. You can move between multiple scripts with the previous and next clip buttons. If you press both jog and scroll buttons, you can live scroll the script like a traditional teleprompter! Even the size, color, font weight and alignment will be read from the RTF script file. Best of all, you can write your scripts in standard 12 point size and HyperDeck will scale them up for the prompter display automatically.
Network File Transfers
HyperDeck Shuttle allows media files to be uploaded remotely, using simple FTP client software. With 1G Ethernet built into the HyperDeck Shuttle, file transfers are very fast, and sometimes faster than the SD card media disk! For remote deck control, all models use an easy to learn text based protocol, so you can use a simple terminal app like Telnet to test control commands. Simply log into the HyperDeck and then type “play” or “record” and it will execute the command. It’s that simple! If you combine the control protocol and file transfers with a HyperDeck connected to a large USB-C disk array, you get a fantastic broadcast server for ingest, media management and play out.
