UltraStudio 3D is a 2K and 3D capture and playback device that uses the new Thunderbolt interface.

Prior to the start of the upcoming International Broadcasting Convention, manufacturer Blackmagic Design released its first video product with Apple and Intel's Thunderbolt high-speed I/O technology.

UltraStudio 3D is a 2K and 3D capture and playback device that uses the new Thunderbolt interface and lists for $995.

According to Blackmagic, the device allows portable capture and playback with full resolution dual stream 3D support, 10 bit hardware architecture, dual link 3 Gb/s SDI, support for up to 1080p60 in SDI and component analog and HDMI 1.4a connections, as well as SD, HD and 2K support.

Additional Thunderbolt related news is anticipated during IBC, which opens Sept. 8 in Amsterdam. Blackmagic will be showing UltraStudio 3D during the confab.

Matrox has said that it plans to release Thunderbolt-enabled MX02 I/0 devices next month.

Last spring at the NAB Show, AJA Video Systems previewed a product in development that uses Thunderbolt.
