Blackmagic Design Decklink Quad
Professional Editing with 4 SDI Inputs and 4 SDI Outputs
Four SDI Cards in One - Build custom broadcast solutions with
DeckLink Quad. When you need
broadcast grade multi channel SDI capture and playback, then DeckLink
Quad gives you four completely independent DeckLink capture cards each
with bypass relays and watchdog timer, all designed into a single PCI
Express card! Perfect for developers and OEMs, now you have an ideal
solution for media playout servers and real time processors
for Developers - Only DeckLink Quad empowers developers to create custom software and
workflows on Mac, Windows or Linux without limitations. Let your
imagination soar and create applications that capture and output
simultaneously, while adding titles, resizing, de-interlacing, and
converting formats on multiple streams! We include a sophisticated SDK,
DirectShow filters and QuickTime API that integrate seamlessly with an
unbelievably wide range of applications and codecs. Develop your
solutions with confidence because DeckLink Quad is a flexible, proven
foundation, freeing you to do what you do best!
Incredible Quality - Perfect for solutions targeting live broadcast and post production,
DeckLink Quad records and plays back native uncompressed 8-bit and
10-bit SD and HD in YUV 4:2:2 for the best quality possible. All
captured images will be stunning because they are a pixel-for-pixel
clone of the source, without any generational loss or damaging
compression. Create facility-class capture and playback solutions that
demand the highest quality and are suitable for any kind of
distribution, from broadcast to streaming.
Efficient Design - DeckLink Quad is four capture and playback cards in one! A single
DeckLink Quad card works as four completely independent devices that
instantly switch between SD and HD, but uses only one PCIe slot.
DeckLink Quad even captures and plays back simultaneously, perfect when
time is of the essence. Imagine the time and cost savings of a newsroom
solution capturing and playing back multiple feeds all at once, with a
single card in one computer! DeckLink Quad also includes low SDI jitter
for long cable runs and the latest PCIe x4 connection for low latency
and a massive 10Gb/s throughput.
Extensive Connections - Get four inputs and four outputs on a single DeckLink Quad card
with black burst and tri-level common genlock for locking to sources of
any frame rate. Scale your solution by accessing multiple cards for
support of up to 16 independent SDI devices, all of which can be
configured to fit your needs in any input or output combination!
DeckLink Quad also fully supports eight channels of uncompressed SDI
embedded audio, as well as Dolby digital pass through, perfect for
surround sound applications. Easily connect to SDI enabled VTRs such as
Digital Betacam, HDCAM SR, XDCAM, D5, DVCPRO HD and more, with zero
latency for instant response!
Exceptional Functionality - When you’re developing for end users with varied needs, flexibility
is key. That’s why DeckLink Quad provides a wide range of features that
can be easily incorporated into your custom solutions. Use the efficient
built in keyer for live overlay of graphics into production switchers
and save the cost of multiple devices. Get guaranteed frame accurate
capture for perfect AV sync. For live-to-air productions, rely on the
built-in bypass relay with watchdog timer, so if power is lost you don’t
lose your incoming video streams and you are never off air. DeckLink
Quad also includes high quality on board resizing, de-interlacing, down
conversion, and RP 188 HD embedded timecode in the SDI stream.
Compatibility - Don’t let your solution be restricted by platform! DeckLink Quad
just a single PCIe slot on Mac OS X, Windows 7 or 64-bit Linux
computers. Across all platforms, the included Media Express application
gets you up and running quickly with timecode accurate capture and play
out of uncompressed QuickTime, AVI and DPX files. The included SDK
lets you develop once and then easily deploy your solution across the
entire range of Blackmagic DeckLink capture cards.
