BlueFish444 Neutron overview

  • 1Description

The Epoch | 4K Neutron Turbo from Bluefish444 features two bi-directional I/O PCIe cards that work together to support capture and playback applications that require 4K/UHD SDI signals up to 60 fps, multi-channel SDI signals, and 4K/UHD HDMI monitoring. At half the length of a full-size PCIe cards, the Epoch | 4K Neutron Turbo cards take the functionality of larger cards and packs it into a form factor that allows for easy integration with rack mounts, smaller-form computers, and portable PCIe or Thunderbolt enclosures. Both cards have full-height shields, with the main card providing connectivity for AES/EBU digital audio, analog audio, and RS-422 control via an included breakout cable.

With three SD/HD/3G-SDI connectors per card, the Epoch | 4K Neutron Turbo accepts single-link, dual-link, and quad-link SDI formats. This allows it to support DCI 4K (4096 x 2160) and Ultra HD (3840 x 2160) 12-bit RGB DCI signals up to 25 fps, 8-/10-bit RGB up to 30 fps, 8-/10-bit YUV up to 60 fps, and even two channels of 8-/10-bit YUV up to 30 fps. For cost-effective monitoring, the main card also features an HDMI output that supports up to DCI 4K at 24 fps and UHD up to 30 fps.

Like other Bluefish444 cards, Neutron cards use a 12-bit processing pipeline to maintain the full quality of your source material. Additional features such as 4 x 1D x 12-bit LUTs on all of the SDI outputs, a low-latency hardware video keyer, and compatibility with industry standard Bluefish444 and 3rd party software make the Epoch | 4K Neutron ideal for a variety of applications and workflows, including editing, color correction, video streaming, production, mobile production, digital intermediate, and image quality control.

Bi-Directional SDI Inputs/Outputs
  • Can playout 4K/UHD over 3G-SDI or HDMI, or capture 4K/UHD over 3G-SDI
  • 6 x BNC connectors that each support SD/HD/3G-SDI input and output signals
  • Dual-link and quad-link HD/3G-SDI support
  • One multi-format BNC connector supports genlock input in addition to video signals
4K SDI High Bandwidth I/O
  • 8/10-bit YUV 4K/UHD @ 23.98, 24, 25, 29.97, 30, 48, 50, 59.94, and 60 fps
  • 8/10-bit YUV 2-channels 4K/UHD @ 23.98, 24, 25, 29.97, and 30 fps
  • 8/10-bit RGB 4K/UHD @ 23.98, 24, 25, 29.97, and 30 fps
  • 12-bit RGB 4K/UHD @ 23.98, 24, and 25 fps
Additional Connectivity
Breakout cable provides:
  • RS-422 interface for control of VTRS and other serial controlled devices
  • 8 channels of AES/EBU audio input and output for capture and playout of digital audio, including 7.1 surround sound monitoring
  • 2 channels of analog audio output (RCA connectors) for stereo monitoring
  • Auxiliary genlock connector
4K / UHD HDMI Monitoring
  • HDMI 1.4 output for cost-effective monitoring

  • Compatible with select Sonnet, Magma, and Netstor chassis
  • Visit Bluefish444's website for a full list of qualified 3rd party chassis options
12-Bit Processing Pipeline
  • Allows 8-, 10-, and 12-bit SDI video signals to be produced from 8-, 10-, 12-, and 16-bit pixel formats for the highest quality from your source material
  • 4096 discrete values of red, green, and blue are maintained per pixel
  • 64 times the color precision of a traditional 10-bit processing pipeline
4 x 4 x 32-Bit Color Matrix
  • Color space conversion image processing includes a fully programmable 4 x 4 x 32-bit color matrix
  • Reduces colorspace conversion errors and ensures color accuracy during capture, monitoring, and mastering
Primary Hardware Color Corrector
  • 4 x 1D x 12-bit LUTs on all SDI outputs gives control over lift, gamma, and gain prior to monitoring or mastering your content
  • When the programmable 4 x 4 x 32-bit color matrix is combined with the onboard 1D LUTs, it provides a powerful hardware color corrector
Low-Latency Video Hardware Keyer
  • Allows video layers to be combined in hardware with only microseconds of delay
  • Enables animated logos, captions, ticker tapes, etc. to be keyed over live video feeds at full 12-bit precision and with minimum input to output delay
  • Hardware keyer can also function as an image pre-multiplier to assist in previewing images with alpha data
