I have a customer that wants to bring in up to 12 4K UHD cameras. What is the best way to get those into a TC1? Doing quad link with the NC1's seems crazy at $5K per camera. Surely there is a better way.

You can build a solution using Connect Pro using 4K capture cards. However, do be aware that most 4K/UHD capture cards are single channel so you would need two cards. Make sure the drivers for that card do support multiple cards in a single system. The computer would need to be powerful enough to handle it, so you are talking a Intel i7 based unit. Also the Connect Pro software is conversion only, it doesn't offer recording like you get with the Connect NC1 IO units.

Are they looking to do 4k 60p or 4K 30p? If they only need 30p it may be easier to source multi-channel 4K 30 capture cards.

That is a good question. I will look into that!
