DVEO to Introduce Four Channel HD-SDI Input Card at IBC 2008, Stand 3.A48

HD-SDI Master Quad/i PCIe Ingests HD Streams to Workstations for Editing and Storage (September 05, 2008)
DMN Newswire--2008-9-5--DVEO, the broadcast division of CMI, will showcase their new four channel HD-SDI PCIe capture card, the HD-SDI Master Quad/i PCIe, at the International Broadcasting Convention (IBC) in Amsterdam, September 12-16, at Stand 3.A48. 

The HD-SDI Master Quad/i PCIe simultaneously brings in four independent HD streams to a PC workstation, making it a very effective input card for HD broadcasters and content providers.  The high bandwidth available with PCI Express gives the card a total bitrate of almost 6 Gbps.  The HD-SDI Master Quad/i PCIe is especially useful for ingesting multiple HD streams to a workstation for storage and editing.

"Many of our VOD server customers around the world are making the switch to digital capture," stated Laszlo Zoltan, Sales Manager for DVEO.  "The HD-SDI Master Quad/i PCIe is an ideal way for them to capture more HD content ? up to four channels at the same time."

With the HD-SDI Master Quad/i, users can select either 1.485 Gbps or 1.4835 (1.485/1.001) Gbps for the top and/or the bottom two channels -- to support video formats defined for true 60 Hz rates, as well as those defined for the 59.94 Hz rates commonly used in North America.  Supported video formats include 1080i and 720p at 60 Hz and 59.94 Hz rates. 

Other features include onboard memory and a proprietary firmware design, to give low system latency.  The card also monitors the incoming streams for CRC errors.
