The Epoch | 4K Supernova S+ Turbo from BlueFish444 features bidirectional BNC connectors and four bi-directional BNC connectors each that accept 3G/HD/SD-SDI and ASI signals. 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. Each card supports up to DCI 4K (4096 x 2160) 4:2:2 10-bit and accepts single link, dual link, and quad link formats. They feature 12-bit internal processing, 4 x 1D x 12-bit LUTs on all SDI outputs, two RS-422 serial ports, and has 256MB of on-board memory.

Included with the Epoch 4K Supernova S+ 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.

Symmetry 3D and DI Software
Symmetry is Bluefish444's 3D and DI acquisition, review, and playback software for Windows included free with the Epoch 4K Supernova. It captures Cineon, DPX, Targa, QuickTime, and AVI files, allowing the use of footage 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 2K and 4K R3D RED files.
Avid Compatibility
Avid has created the "Open IO" open plug-in architecture that enables the Epoch | 4K Supernova S+ to input and output full resolution 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.
