Bluefish444 Epoch | Supernova CG
Key Features
  • Full-Height, 2/3-Length 4-Lane PCIe Card
  • 4 x Bidirectional HD/SD-SDI Connectors
  • Up to 2K/30 Resolution
  • 12-Bit Processing and Super Low Latency
The Bluefish444 Epoch | Supernova CG features four bidirectional HD/SD-SDI connectors supporting up to DCI 2K/30 resolution video input and output with extremely low latency of sub on field or frame. The Supernova CG is an internal full-height, 2/3-length 4-lane PCIe card compatible with Windows, Mac, and Linux systems, but it can also be installed in optional Thunderbolt enclosures from Sonnet and other brands for alternate multimedia workflow options, including integration with a second PCIe card, such as a PCIe-based SSD drive or RAID controller. Included with the card is a free download of the Bluefish444 IngeSTore acquisition software and Bluefish444 cross-platform SDK.

The Bluefish444 Epoch | Supernova CG features four bidirectional HD/SD-SDI connectors supporting up to DCI 2K/30 resolution video input and output with extremely low latency of sub on field or frame. The Supernova CG is an internal full-height, 2/3-length 4-lane PCIe card compatible with Windows, Mac, and Linux systems, but it can also be installed in optional Thunderbolt enclosures from Sonnet and other brands for alternate multimedia workflow options, including integration with a second PCIe card, such as a PCIe-based SSD drive or RAID controller. Included with the card is a free download of the Bluefish444 IngeSTore acquisition software and Bluefish444 cross-platform SDK.

Other features of the card include embedded audio support, dedicated reference input, high-performance bypass relays, 4 x 4 x 33-bit color matrix, 12-bit video signal path, hardware downstream keyer, full-duplex DMA data transfer, and 256MB of on-board memory.

The Epoch | Supernova CG can be used for broadcast graphics, post-production, live events, and digital intermediate, mobile production, QC, video over IP, and streaming workflows among many others.

Key Features

  • Full-height, 2/3-length 4-lane PCIe, Gen 1 card (8- and 16-lane compatible)
  • Four independent and simultaneous bidirectional HD/SD-SDI BNC connectors
  • Up to DCI 2K/30 resolution playout or capture via dual-link HD-SDI
  • Dedicated BNC reference input
  • Compatible with Mac, Windows, and Linux
  • High-performance bypass relays
  • 4 x 4 x 33-bit color matrix
  • 12-bit video signal path
  • Audio sample-rate converters
  • MR2 master routing resource
  • Input stream integrity management
  • Full-duplex DMA data transfer
  • 256MB on-board memory
  • Hardware downstream keyer
  • 16 channels of embedded SDI I/O audio
  • Dolby Digital pass-through SDI

Low Latency

Supernova CG provides access to captured fields or frames to on-board card memory even before the whole field or frame is complete, thereby reducing the latency to sub on field or frame. During a capture or playout, each process can occur at less than or equal to 1 field for interlaced modes, and less than 1 frame for progressive modes.

Low-Latency Video Keyer

Low-latency hardware video keyer allows video layers to be combined in hardware with microseconds of delay. This allows animated logos, captions, tickers, and more to be keyed over live video feeds at full 12-bit precision, and with minimum input to output delay. The keyer can also function as an image pre-multiplier to assist in previewing images with alpha data.

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, providing the highest image quality available from your source material.

RGB / YUV

Fully programmable 4 x 4 x 33-bit color matrix provides the highest quality color space conversions, reduces color space conversion errors, and ensures the highest quality color accuracy during capture, monitoring, and mastering.

Thunderbolt Expansion Compatibility

The Epoch | Supernova CG is compatible with Sonnet, One Stop Systems Magma, Netstor, and AKiTiO Thunderbolt expansion enclosures for multichannel mobile production.

Pixel Formats

2VUY, YUVS, BV8, V210, AYUV_4224, AYUV_4444, YV12, I420, ARGB, BGRA, RGB24, Cineon, DPX, RGB48, and custom formats.
