FREE multi-channel capture tool, IngeSTore
Epoch | Neutron. FREE IngeSTore Multi-channel ingest.
Bluefish444 have developed IngeSTore as a multi-channel ingest tool, which is available FREE with all 4K Supernova S+ I/O cards. IngeSTore allows capture of up to 4 channels of video with independent format SDI sources simultaneously. Capture to QuickTime, AVI and DVCPRO50/HD codecs for free, with additional codecs available via licensing.
Independent bi-directional I/Os deliver unparalleled flexibility
Epoch | 4K Supernova S+. Independent bi-directional I/Os deliver unparalleled flexibility.
4K Supernova S+ provides flexibility and performance like no other with 4 industry standard BNC video connectors each allowing 3G/1.5G/HD/SD-SDI input or output, a fifth BNC for SDI monitoring, and a dedicated sixth Reference INPUT BNC. With bi-directional connectivity built-in, you choose whether you want the BNC’s to be either input, output, 4K, 2K, HD or SD, and in 3G/1.5G/HD/SD video modes, each BNC connector can be any frame-rate and frequency of your choosing.
Maintaining a 12-bit processing pipeline
Epoch | 4K Supernova S+. Maintaining a 12-bit processing pipeline.
A 12-bit image processing pipeline is standard on 4K Supernova S+. This feature allows 8, 10 & 12-bit SDI video signals to be produced from 8, 10, 12 & 16-bit pixel formats providing the highest image quality available from your source material. A 12-bit image pipe means that 4096 discrete values of red, green & blue are maintained per pixel; that’s 4 times the colour precision of a traditional 10-bit processing pipeline!
Maintaining the highest quality RGB <=> YUV
Epoch | 4K Supernova S+. Maintaining the highest quality RGB <=> YUV.
Colour space conversion image processing includes a fully programmable 4 x 4 x 33-bit colour matrix providing the highest quality colour space conversions that are a standard requirement in professional video workflows. The fully programmable 4 x 4 x 33-bit colour matrix reduces colour space conversion errors and ensures the highest quality colour accuracy during capture, monitoring and mastering.
Thunderbolt expansion chassis compatibility
Epoch | 4K Supernova S+. Thunderbolt Expansion Chassis Compatibility.
Popular PCI Express and Thunderbolt expansion chassis' are designed to be light and portable. 4K Supernova S+ is compatible with all full-length PCIe devices from a single slot right through to much larger multi-slot devices.
For the full list of qualified 3rd-party chassis', visit Bluefish444 Certified Solutions page.
Low-latency video keyer
Epoch | 4K Supernova S+. Low Latency Video Keyer.
The 4K Supernova S+ has a low-latency hardware video keyer, allowing video layers to be combined in hardware with microseconds of delay. This feature allows animated logos, captions, tickers, and more to be keyed over live video feeds at full 12-bit precision, and with minimum input to output delay. The hardware keyer can also function as an image pre-multiplier to assist in previewing images with alpha data.
Epoch | 4K Supernova S+. Maximum Connectivity.
4K Supernova S+ features 3G/1.5G/HD/SD-SDI video and audio, a fifth BNC for SDI monitoring/BF Lock and a dedicated sixth Reference INPUT BNC.
4K Supernova S+ EX includes the following extra connectivity;
RS-422 machine control for control of VTRs and other serial-controlled devices.
8 channels of AES EBU audio input and output for 7.1 surround sound monitoring. Capture and playout digital audio signals in crystal-clear quality.
2 channels of analogue audio for quick and simple high-quality audio monitoring.
LTC timecode input and output.
Hardware colour corrector
Epoch | 4K Supernova S+. Hardware Colour Corrector.
When the Bluefish444 programmable matrix is combined with the onboard 1D LUTs, it provides a powerful primary hardware colour corrector. 4 x 1D x 12-bit LUTs on all SDI outputs gives maximum control over lift, gamma and gain prior to monitoring or mastering your precious video assets.
Cross platform support with Industry leading 3rd-party software
