Bluefish444 Workflows Video Over IP



Bluefish444 have been a market leader in bridging the gap between SDI and Video over IP. Ingest SDI sources up to 4K 60p for conversion to Video over IP protocols, or playout SDI up to 4K 60p from existing IP production networks.

Bluefish444 video cards are the perfect companion for video over IP solutions that require an SDI I/O interface. 4K SDI, Multi-channel 3G/1.5G SDI I/O, SD SDI I/O, independent video modes per channel, world class reliability, broadcast failsafes, multi-card support and extremely low latency are key features of Bluefish444 products.

Bluefish444 has direct OEM integration with:





Bluefish444 have developed a unified cross-platform Software Development Kit designed by software developers, for software developers, who wish to integrate Bluefish444 video products into their own solutions. The BlueVelvetC API enables programmers to write the Bluefish444 SDK code once and then deploy to other operating systems without any changes to their code.

The Bluefish444 SDK provides a simple, consistent and extensible interface to all Bluefish444 hardware products. It provides a number of useful abstractions and interfaces designed to relieve the developer of direct hardware involvement, freeing them to concentrate on developing.

Additional interfaces are available to help accelerate development providing accessible interfaces such as:

  • DirectShow
  • V4L2
  • NVIDIA GPUDirect
  • AMD DirectGMA for video

If you would like access to the Bluefish444 SDK, please fill out our Developer Registration Form, and a representative of Bluefish444 will review your application and supply you with login details. You can then download the SDK on our Downloads page.
