Blackmagic Design HYPERD/PT HyperDeck Shuttle

I was curious if anyone has actually used one of these:

These haven't shipped, yet, to my knowledge. I've heard July, some time for the earliest deliveries.

Am looking forward to hearing about this product, too. Omega Broadcast is looking into compatible drives for the deck. Getting the right drives will be crucial for this product's operation.

This device really does it's job.
The QT filesappear to be high quality when compared to my camera's native MP4 files, after editing with effects and outputting.

I have discovered though, that the choice of SSD's is critical.
Drives that rely on compression to boost IO speed do not work properly with large video files like uncompressed HD.
I tried a Corsair F115 but it drops frames badly.
Ideal drives have the JMicron JMF618 controller which does not use compression and has aggressive garbage collection as TRIM function is not availabe without windows 7 OS.

Since SSD's in the Shuttle are HFS+ and especially when it is not attached to a computer and OS, this is useful.
The alternative is to secure erase the drive regularly and reformat HFS+.
Not a very elegant solution.

I'm very pleased with the shuttle but saving up for a suitable SSD.

Re: Blackmagic Design HYPERD/PT HyperDeck Shuttle

I've been looking into the HyperDecks as a means to record editable copies of our arena's hockey/lacrosse games. The only downfall about them is the massive Uncompressed Quicktime files created. You only get about 12 minutes of HD video on a 128GB drive, or 48 or so minutes of SD (I think) . I need an uninterrupted video file that I can whip down to production and be able to edit after each game.
