You get a pixel-for-pixel mirror image capture of the source, without any generational loss or damaging compression. That means every bit of every pixel from the SDI input is retained unchanged, perfect for DaVinci Resolve color correction. Create the sharpest VFX plates for match moving, compositing, and more. With all of the raw uncompressed data available to you, there's no limit to your creativity!
