Product Highlights
  • Full-Length, 4-Lane PCIe I/O Card
  • 4 Bi-Directional 3G/HD/SD-SDI and ASI
  • 5th BNC for Genlock/SDI/ASI/AES/EBU/LTC
  • DCI / QFHD 4:4:4 & 4:2:2 8/10 Bit
  • 4 x 1D x 12-Bit LUTs on All SDI Outputs
  • Single-Link 4:2:2 I/O
  • Dual-Link 4:4:4, 4:4:4:4, 4:2:2:4 I/O
  • 12 Bit 2K/HD/SD-SDI I/O
  • 12 Bit Internal Processing
  • 1.1GB/s DMA for Full Duplex I/O

The BlueFish444 Epoch 4K Supernova is a full-length PCIe I/O card with 4 bi-directional 3G/HD/SD-SDI and ASI BNC connectors. A fifth BNC supports multi-format input of bi/tri-level analog genlock, SDI, ASI, AES/EBU, and LTC. 4x 1D x 12-bit LUTs are incorporated on all SDI outputs. The card supports formats from 720@59.94 NTSC/50 PAL to 4K DCI 4:4:4 RGB 8/10 bit. It captures/outputs single-link 4:2:2 and dual-link 4:4:4, 4:4:4:4, 4:2:2:4. Epoch 4K Supernova features 256MB of on-board memory.

Included with Epoch 4K Supernova is BlueFish444's 3D and DI acquisition, review, and playback software for Windows called Symmetry. Symmetry captures Cineon, DPX, Targa, QuickTime, and AVI files and allows footage to be used on multiple applications across multiple platforms, eliminating the need to re-render between tools. Symmetry dispenses loss issues associated with color conversion by providing a choice of color spaces from 8-bit YUV up to 16 bit RGB. Features include 3D stereoscopic capture, side-by-side, 3D playback, and new format integration including 4K and 2K R3D RED files.

Avid Compatibility
Avid has created the "Open IO" open plug-in architecture that enables Epoch 4K Supernova to input and output full resolution HD-SDI video using the Avid Media Composer family of software.
Adobe Creative Cloud Compatibility
Adobe has launched a new plug-in architecture called "Adobe Mercury Transmit" which, when combined with Epoch 4K Supernova, enables up to 4K, 60p playback of the industry's most widely used formats.
ASSIMILATE SCRATCH Compatibility
Bluefish444 has partnered with ASSIMILATE to develop a freely available 12 bit and 2K SDI plug-in to enable SCRATCH and SCRATCH Lab users to preview their 2K and 3D stereoscopic workflows in 12 bit. Bluefish444 has also developed a freely available 3G-SDI 8/10 bit YUV/RGB 4K plug-in to SCRATCH & SCRATCH Lab.
