  • 1Description
The BlueFish444 Epoch|Core High Definition 2K Capture/Playback Solution is a post production hardware kit that features a fully programmable image scaling pipeline with 2K preview, dual link, and multi-channel input/output. The system allows users to cross convert, down convert, and up convert high definition signals while conforming 2K and stereoscopic 3D footage. All scaling is accomplished with hardware-based processors, making it incredibly fast. Features such as DVI, HDMI, and 2:3 and 2:3:3:2 allow for extreme flexibility.

Most notably, the Bluefish444 line of scalers all take advantage of a 12-bit processing pipeline, ensuring the most accurate scaling in the industry. The 12-bit RGB to YUV color space conversion technique offers 4 times the amount of color space than traditional methods, making compositing and motion graphics a breeze.
Broadcast Engineering Redefined
Let's face it, "broadcast quality" 10 years ago is much like comparing VHS is to Blu-ray today! Everyone's quick to boast their product is "broadcast quality", but with the advent of 3G-SDI, 12-bit video processing and Stereoscopic 3D capability, Bluefish444's new Epoch truly delivers what others just talk about. Epoch's 4-lane PCI-e cards have a maximum bandwidth of 1.1GBps delivering full duplex DMA. Add to that the precision of hardware based Color Space Conversion, 2K video resolution and a proprietary RapidFlow+MR2 technology, it's no wonder the cards are the professionals' choice.
Reliable Hardware
Thousands of customers attest to using Epoch products in "mission critical" environments such as digital intermediary post and live broadcast where they're running 24/7.
From MR2's routing architecture, to RapidFlow's agnostic scaling and cross conversion options, the hardware upgrade path offers the greatest level of flexibility to the end user.
Master Routing Resource
New to the Epoch boards is the software controlled on board master routing resource (MR2). The master routing resource acts like a telephone exchange for super connectivity. Allowing video streams passed to the Epoch video card via BNC or host workstation to be routed to any of Epoch's multiple outputs simultaneously, using the Jetstream and/or VariVue hardware module if desired. The master routing resource (MR2) within Epoch enables a user to flexibly configure the Epoch's main and preview outputs to suit their individual workflow. This flexibility of workflow enables users to make better use of their existing video equipment and time. There is no longer the need for external converters, or, to output or ingest each format required through individual passes.
VariVue Option
The VariVue hardware module is an optional dedicated video hardware scaling and preview module that is fitted to the Epoch video card. It acts as a low cost, high quality third preview option to the Epoch video board for LCD, Plasma and Projector devices. Once fitted, VariVue provides the highest quality real-time DVI/HDMI preview options for the Epoch's SDI I/O.
