Blackmagic update adds support for Adobe's Creative Cloud
FREMONT, CA — Blackmagic Design has released the Desktop Video 9.7.5 software update, which adds full support for Adobe Creative Cloud software across its desktop video products. The Desktop Video 9.7.5 software update allows users to take advantage of many new features in the Adobe Creative Cloud desktop applications, such as new editing timelines and shortcuts and audio mixing with Adobe Premiere Pro CC, and new creative and visual effects tools within After Effects. Also included is support for Adobe Mercury Transmit, which allows broadcast video monitoring to connect directly into the Adobe Mercury Playback engine. This provides realtime effects with any video format or codec.

The update means Blackmagic Design’s DeckLink, UltraStudio and Intensity range will work seamlessly with the new features in Adobe Creative Cloud applications. DeckLink, UltraStudio and Intensity include high performance capture and playback cards for Mac, Windows and Linux. They feature both PCIe- and Thunderbolt-based technology, and come in both internal and external models.

Customers using Adobe After Effects CC will be able to work in the highest quality compressed and uncompressed video formats up to Ultra HD and 4K. When working with Ultra HD and 4K video formats, customers can choose between the rack mount UltraStudio 4K and the DeckLink 4K Extreme PCIe card. Both products have 6G-SDI and HDMI 4K video connections to capture and playback Ultra HD and 4K video formats as well as dual stream stereoscopic 3D. Blackmagic Design recently announced a new lower price for UltraStudio 4K to $995.

Desktop Video 9.7.5 software update with support for Adobe Creative Cloud software is available now as a free download for all DeckLink, UltraStudio and Intensity customers from the Blackmagic Design Web support page (
UltraStudio 4K and DeckLink 4K Extreme are available now for $995.
