BlueFish444 EB3006ZFF overview

  • 1Description

The Epoch | 4K Neutron Turbo LP 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 low-profile shields for increased compatibility with compact expansion chassis. A separate model is available that features full height shields and connectivity for AES/EBU digital audio, analog audio, and RS-422 control via a 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.
