The M|80X is a hardware & software bundle. Simply connect the M|80 box to one of the Thunderbolt 3 ports of an iMac Pro and immediately start ingesting 8 3G channels at a cost significantly less than other multichannel ingest solutions using the MovieRecorder 4 software (8 licenses included).
MovieRecorder 4 captures video using a video device. Video clips captured using MovieRecorder can be edited during the actual ingest, making it very handy for live sports editing. Additionally you can schedule your recordings.
Eight inputs can be recorded for later editing or thanks to MovieRecorder 3’s edit-while-ingest capability, edited on the fly.
WHAT'S INCLUDED FOR THE PRICE ?
The M|80X bundle comprises
Thunderbolt 2 or 3
The M|80X is available only with a Thunderbolt 3 connector and require to be connected with a 40Gb/s Thunderbolt 3 cable to an iMac Pro. Other computers may be compatible in the future, but currently only iMac Pros can deliver the speed needed for that number of channels.
Differences with the M|80
The main difference is that the M|80X supports 3G signals and thus it supports high frame rates such as 1080p60. The M|80 does not support 3G and can use formats up to 1080p30 (or 1080i60). Aside from that, the expansion chassis is different. The M|80 is Thunderbolt 2 (or 3), and the chassis is much smaller than the M|80X which is Thunderbolt 3 only.
ABOUT ADDITIONAL OPTIONS
You can order a "Multicam Logger license" at a discounted price when ordered at the same time as the M|80X. The license will be added to the same dongle and Multicam Logger will thus have to be used on the same computer.
Note that the standard license of MovieRecorder 4 now includes the ProCodecs and Closed Captioning options. They don't need to be ordered separately anymore.
SERIAL NUMBER OR DONGLE ?
Serial numbers are not available with the M80. The price include the dongle with the 8 licences.
ADDING MORE LICENSES TO THE DONGLE?
With the M|80X, the 8 MovieRecorder licenses are provided on a dongle (included), and can thus not be split on different computers. But if you want to run on the same computer for example a license of OnTheAir Video or OnTheAir Video Express, you can ask us to add it to the dongle. We can add up to 12 additional licenses on the dongle.
