The Epoch | 4K Supernova Turbo from BlueFish444 allows users to input or output DCI and UHD 4K at 60 fps. Each full length PCIe i/o card features bidirectional BNC connectors and supports 3G/HD/SD-SDI and ASI signals up to 4K resolution. Each connector can be configured as either input or output. Each card supports up to 4K at 30 fps, and both cards can be used together for 4K at 60 fps. The cards feature Jetstream, Symmetry, Fluid, Adobe, Avid and Assimilate plug-ins and support Windows, Linux, and Mac OSX SDK’s. Each Epoch 4K Supernova Turbo features 3G Bypass Relays, fully programmable 4 x 4 x 32-bit color matrix, 4 x 1D x 12-bit LUTs on all SDI outputs, and 12-bit video signal path throughout, two RS-422 serial ports, and has 256MB of on-board memory.

A fifth BNC supports multi-format input of bi/tri-level analog genlock, SDI, ASI, AES/EBU, and LTC, while an additional BNC provides a copy of the SDI output from BNC 2. The cards support up to DCI 4K (4096 x 2160) 4:2:2 10-bit and accepts single, dual, and quad link formats. Included with the Epoch 4K Supernova Turbo 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.
