IngeSTore Multi-channel HD/SD Capture
Bluefish444 have developed IngeSTore software as a complementary multi-channel ingest tool enabling Bluefish444 hardware to capture multiple independent format SDI sources simultaneously. IngeSTore can be used seamlessly in combination with popular NLE software such as Avid Media Composer and Adobe Premiere Pro CC to provide a simultaneous capture and output solution with compatible Bluefish444 hardware and firmware modes.
Switch between SDI & ASI
Epoch | Neutron and Epoch | 4K Neutron developer cards can capture, play through and playout raw transport DVB ASI streams in addition to supporting SDI I/O. Epoch | Neutron offers the flexibility to choose between capturing 2K/HD/SD SDI or ASI and similarly the flexibility to choose to playback either 2K/HD/SD SDI or ASI. Epoch | 4K Neutron offers the flexibility to choose between capturing 4K/2K/HD/SD SDI or ASI and similarly the flexibility to choose to playback either 4K/2K/HD/SD SDI or ASI. This allows extreme transport flexibility for either live or file-based workflows.
The latest KRONOS video I/O cards from Bluefish444 feature emerging IP standards such as SMPTE 2022-6, via 10Gb network to ensure the highest quality video broadcasters, production and post-production workflows. Developers and Professional users of Bluefish444 can now access SMPTE 2022 workflows via the Bluefish444 “IPConnect” API, part of the Bluefish444 SDK. IPConnect enables support of SMPTE 2022-6 de-encapsulation for all Bluefish444 customers from standard off the shelf network interfaces with the SDK and within 3rd party application support.
