New for NAB 2008 - DVEO to Introduce Four Channel HD-SDI Input Card

HD-SDI Master Quad/i PCIe Ingests HD Streams to Workstations for Editing and Storage (April 10, 2008)

DMN Newswire--2008-4-10-- 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 NAB (National Association of Broadcasters) Show in Las Vegas, April 14-17.   

Designed for HD broadcasters and post-production professionals, the HD-SDI Master Quad/i PCIe simultaneously brings in four independent HD streams to a PC workstation.  Thanks to the high bandwidth available with PCI Express, the card`s total bitrate is almost 6 Gbps.  The HD-SDI Master Quad/i PCIe is especially useful for ingesting HD streams to a workstation for storage and editing.  

 "Getting Apple`s Final Cut Pro working with four channels is our goal," stated Laszlo Zoltan, Sales Manager for DVEO.  "Our HD-SDI Master Quad/i PCIe enables OEM`s to capture more content simultaneously." 

The HD-SDI Master Quad/i PCIe has hardware which allows users to select either 1.485 Gbps or 1.4835 (1.485/1.001) Gbps for the top and/or the bottom two channels, in order 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.
