Blackmagic Design Announces New Windows XP x64 Support for DeckLink Family of Capture Cards
Today, Blackmagic Design announced 64-bit driver support with its software Version 5.5 for the DeckLink family of products. The DeckLink uncompressed video products take advantage of the larger memory architecture within Windows XP Professional x64 Edition.
Featuring 128GB RAM and 16TB of virtual memory, Windows XP x64 provides a higher performance platform that supports both 32-bit and the latest 64-bit applications. All DeckLink products can now take advantage of high-performance computing environments with full support for powerful 64 bit hardware and increased stability on Windows XP x64. Because DeckLink products have drivers written natively for Windows XP x64, all users now get a complete solution specifically built for high-performance server and workstations.
DeckLink 5.5 for Windows XP x64 includes the following:
- Support for Windows XP x64 for 64 bit and 32 bit based applications
- True 10-bit RGB or YUV support for Adobe Premiere Pro 2.0, with real time preview in Adobe After Effects 7.0, Photoshop and Combustion
- Closed-caption support in High and Standard Definition analog and digital video
- Fill and Key output on the DeckLink HD Pro (4:4:4) models
Blackmagic's latest software driver is available free to registered Multibridge Extreme and DeckLink users, and can be downloaded immediately from the Blackmagic Design support Wb site located at www.blackmagic-design.com/support/software/.
