Ultrascope Upgrade Software

Blackmagic's UltraScope and Pocket UltraScope are handy devices that provide a basic set of waveform/vectorscopes for Windows or MacOS-x machines.  Now you can get even more out of your hardware with the sdiScope upgrade for UltraScope. sdiScope adds more scopes and features to UltraScope hardware, UltraScope compatible devices and even your other Blackmagic hardware!  You can also run scopes on machines not supported by UltraScope software, like the Mac Mini and machines with non-HD displays.
