HyperDeck Shuttle 2 - no captioning?
on Apr 30, 2012 at 9:50:37 pm

Hi there,

I read with great interest the specs on the Shuttle 2. and I quote:

"SDI Metadata Support HD RP188 and closed captioning."

However, when I got the unit in-house and put it inline in place of our HD deck and output from FCP 7, I couldn't work out how to play back the clips with HD Captioning.

It's weird, because the clips to come back into FCP 7 with a closed-captioning track, but there is no actual data there that I can see in Quicktime.

I really want this to work, because I think this could be an ideal delivery mechanism to our local stations.

So, I decided to call tech support today and see what's up. The tech told me (after a lengthy delay) that it is a planned feature but not yet supported.

I'm confused as to why BMD would post specs that aren't implemented yet but act as if they are. This is not a terribly new product, either, so there's been time for at least a couple firmware releases.

Am I missing something?
