This card allows customers to connect older Ultra HD and 4K equipment that use quad link 3G-SDI connections to their computer through their existing DeckLink 4K Extreme 12G video capture and playback card.
Now with DeckLink 4K Extreme 12G – Quad SDI a colorist working with DaVinci Resolve in a grading suite or theater can directly connect to older monitors and digital cinema projectors that have four 3G-SDI connections, without needing to buy additional external converters. In addition to Quad SDI support, the DeckLink 4K Extreme 12G – Quad SDI card also adds a built in hardware down converter for outputting 1080p60 video from 12G-SDI 2160p60 sources.
The new Quad Link SDI mezzanine card fits in the mezzanine slot on the DeckLink 4K Extreme 12G, replacing the standard HDMI card that normally occupies the slot. The mezzanine card is easily replaceable and can be installed directly by customers. Installing the Quad Link SDI mezzanine card gives customers quad link 3G-SDI capture and playback on their DeckLink 4K Extreme 12G card.
The DeckLink 4K Extreme 12G capture and playback card onto which the Quad SDI mezzanine card gets installed is an extremely fast, 8 lane PCI Express Generation 2 card that lets customers capture and playback dual stream video at resolutions up to 2160p60. This super-fast, high performance card allows dual stream 3D, as well as the capture and playback of simultaneous fill and key, even when operating in Ultra HD at 60 frames per second.
