The BlueFish444 Epoch | 4K Supernova S+ EX is a PCIe I/O card with four bi-directional BNC connectors 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. The card supports up to DCI 4K (4096 x 2160) 4:2:2 10-bit and accepts single link, dual link, and quad link formats. It features 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. This model features connectivity for AES/EBU digital audio, analog audio, RS-422 control, and LTC input/output, which are all available via an included breakout cable.

Included with the Epoch | 4K Supernova S+ EX 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.
