PCI Express is very easy for computer manufacturers to provide high speed slots at low cost. This means PCI Express is showing up everywhere! It's even becoming the future docking standard on notebook computers.

With support for 1920x1200, 1920x1080 and 1280x800 resolution monitors, Blackmagic UltraScope can now be used with screen sizes smaller than 24", which is perfect for outside broadcast vans or in-studio rack mounting.

Impress your Clients!
High end post production and television engineers have known for decades the benefit of using waveform monitoring not just for engineering, but operationally in color correction and editing workflow. From color correction to matching black levels when keying and overlaying video, only waveform monitoring lets you keep track of what's going on, and helps you eliminate illegal colors, and other problems that could cause your work to be rejected by broadcasters.
