Hi guys!


Do any of you guys have any experience with this capture card, ord maybe it's little brother, the decklink Quad?


I might be able to get one for my Watchout 5 setup and i think it looks promising.




Thanks in advance!

Yes, and I won't recommend BM capture cards. We had all sorts of problems, like having to reboot 4-5 times, because the BM capture cards wouldn't initialise properly. After a short time we changed to a Datapath card that Dataton also recommended. No problems since the change. True - BM looks really promising, and they do have a lot of great products. Unfortunately the capture cards are, in my opinion, not the right choice in this case.

Best regards Christian

I've used the Duo many times over. A little quirky and requires correct configuration in the driver and watchout, but solid and the price is right.
