At this time, we are not yet recommending updating production critical machines to macOS 11 (Big Sur). If you’re one of those that wants to be ahead of the game, you can always test it out and provide us with feedback on how it’s working for you! Just make sure to send it to our support team at contact.renewedvision.com so that we can improve the experience with Big Sur going forward. We hope to make an official recommendation soon!
All mission-critical computers should still have “auto-update” turned off. You can do this by unchecking the “Install macOS updates” option in System Preferences > Software Update > Advanced.
At the time this has been written (November 20, 2020), Blackmagic Design DeckLink/UltraStudio products do have newer drivers for OS Big Sur and our team is working to test their compatibility at this time.
We will update this article when more information on compatibility for our products is available.
