Latest drivers and updates for software
In our email newsletter we detail which are the best drivers to use or not use with various software, in our opinion. We can't promise to test everything but do test the versions we use on our own systems. This page will lists the current drivers and ones we would recommend you do not use.
Blackmagic devices support many different programs on many different platforms, and with different connections (PCI, USB3 and Thunderbolt) so it is quite hard to summarise the current state of play simply. For more detailed information please visit the Blackmagic website.
Black Magic's latest drivers are 9.7.5 and are designed to work with Avid Media Composer 6, 6.5 & 7, and Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 & CC.

These new features would be:
If you have the 9.6.8 drivers on your system and everything is working ok, do not bother to update. If you need some of the new features then update and just look out for audio sync problems on long captures
