Blackmagic Design UltraStudio Mini Recorder A Must Have
I purchased 3 of these to help me produce live video and help me share my TV and camera screen! However, after I received it, I couldn’t get it to work with my Sony A7ii camcorders (output is 1080i/59.94). I tried it on my MacBooks as well, and it just wouldn’t work. As I was planning to return it for a refund. But, I read through the reviews on Amazon and found a review that explained how to set the equipment correctly.
The Blackmagic Design UltraStudio Mini Recorder does exactly what it’s supposed to do. Once you get the software running properly.

1) The first step is to visit Blackmagic Design website and download and install the latest software for UltraStudio MiniRecorder from Blackmagic’s website.
