Maintaining a 12-bit processing pipeline


A 12-bit image processing pipeline is standard on all Bluefish444 video cards. This 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!


Bluefish444

Maintaining the highest quality RGB <=> YUV


Colour space conversion image processing includes a fully programmable 4x4x33-bit colour matrix providing the highest quality colour space conversions that are a standard requirement in professional video workflows. The fully programmable 4x4x33-bit colour matrix reduces colour space conversion errors and ensures the highest quality colour accuracy during capture, monitoring and mastering.


Bluefish444

Thunderbolt Expansion Chassis Compatibility


opular PCI Express and Thunderbolt expansion chassis are designed to be light and portable. The Epoch | 4K Neutron is compatible with them all from the smallest single slot devices right through to much larger multi-slot devices.For the full list of qualified 3rd party chassis visit Bluefish444 Certified Solutions page.


Bluefish444

Low-latency Video Keyer


The Epoch | 4K Neutron has an all-new low-latency hardware video keyer allowing video layers to be combined in hardware with microseconds of delay. This feature allows animated logos, captions, ticker tapes, etc. 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.




Maximum Connectivity
