Hello
I have a vmix system using BM Duo 2 capture card using the 4 port as input from sdi sources.
I know need 3 additional inputs. Could add another BM Duo 2 card in the system and configure the card as 3 inputs and 1 out?

Short answer is yes if your hardware supports it.

In reality, however, it's a pain to work with because rebooting a system with two identical Decklink cards will often result in different initialisation order, causing inputs in vMix to fail on project load. You then need to add the inputs manually again.

The right solution would be getting a Quad 2, using your Duo 2's for other purposes.

Does anyone know if this will fit into an expansion case? like Akiti?
