    I shall look into this option, thank you... It seems like most of the options lead to the blackmagic products

The answer in this case was to do the switch in HD and convert the output of the switcher up to UHD through a Blackmagic Teranex Standards Converter. It did an amazing job of the conversion. All in all for a price that was very reasonable.

    Yes, Thats correct, I had thought that a sound device pix did something like that or an atomos maybe?

    A few of them do the opposite, they downscale. I don't remember which ones exactly and I don't remember exactly how (like in RAW or if it was with certain cameras), but I do know the Convergent-Design one did nice 2K downscaling. I did this with the C500 a few times a century ago.

    I don't think there are any recorders (at least normal ones for cinema cameras meant to be used out in the field) with built-in upscaling (if that's what you're asking).

    But perhaps you could add an upscaling box somewhere in the chain although it might be messy depending on what type of connections you're using and any applicable power.

    You want to take a 1080p camera and record 4K, is that right?

    started a topic Recording 1080p to 4K

    Recording 1080p to 4K

    Is there an external recorder that allows me to record 1080p to an upscale 4k? Like any of the Atomos's maybe? or is this option only available in editing?
Working...
