For even higher performance, the UltraStudio 4K Extreme 3 model has all the same powerful features of UltraStudio 4K Extreme, but also features the latest high speed Thunderbolt 3 connection for transfer speeds of up to 40 Gb/s over a single cable.

The UltraStudio 4K Extreme models feature a built in multi format hardware encoder that lets you capture to H.265. H.265 delivers amazing quality and is the compression standard for distributing Ultra HD content online. You can also use H.265 compression for SD and HD video giving you smaller files at higher quality than other compression formats. The built-in hardware encoder is designed to be upgradable so you get a future proof solution that can add new formats via software updates as they become available.
