The PNY Technologies NVIDIA Quadro K4000 SDI I/O graphics card takes advantage of the NVIDIA Kepler architecture to accelerate professional applications. With this Graphics Card you can count on good interaction when utilizing virtual sets, augmented reality broadcast solutions, or rendering rich scene details and effects for video, film, or broadcast production workflows that depend on the ingest and output of SDI SD, HD, or 2K video. The Quadro K4000 SDI I/O features SMX for increased per-clock throughput of key graphics operations and bind-less textures that enable the GPU to reference textures directly in memory.
The NVIDIA Quadro SDI Capture Board delivers a fully-integrated GPU-based solution for capture of SD-, HD-, and 3G-SDI video footage, in real-time, directly to GPU memory and supports all SMPTE standard formats. The NVIDIA Quadro SDI Output Board is suitable for digital broadcasting applications such as virtual sets, sports, and weather news systems that composite live video footage onto virtual backgrounds and send the resulting live video for TV broadcast. SDI output allows film production, post-production, and finishing professionals to preview the results of 3D compositing, editing, and color grading in real-time on high definition broadcast monitors. The 8-, 10-, or 12-bit SDI generated from programmable graphics enables a direct connection to broadcast monitors, switchers, take decks, or SDI projectors.
