4K Neutron provides unsurpassed image quality with a 12-bit processing pipeline for all 8/10/12-bit video modes. The hardware design and cross-platform SDK have evolved from 10+ years of continuous development making it extraordinarily reliable. An MR2 routing resource, alongside a customisable full-duplex asynchronous DMA engine, deliver unrivalled developer flexibility.
The 4K Neutron has, by design, the world's lowest latency, providing access to captured video frames with the shortest possible delay. A FIFO mode to protect against dropped frames, bypass relays and a watchdog timer allows developers to plan for the unexpected and ensure that the show does go on.
4K Neutron can capture, play-through and playout raw transport DVB ASI streams in addition to supporting SDI I/O. 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. That’s maximum transport flexibility for either live or file-based workflows.
The 4K Neutron range offers a variety of low-profile and full-height shield options allowing the same physical hardware to be deployed in any number of applications and inside any number of enclosures or chassis'.
4K Neutron offers a full-height shield and optional connectivity making for ease of integration with traditional workstations and expansion chassis.
The 4K Neutron LP has a low-profile shield for installation in low-profile workstations and expansion chassis', creating a highly-compact professional video solution available with optional connectivity.
The Bluefish444 Windows, Linux and macOS SDK’s share a common API allowing developers to port from one platform to another with greater ease and efficiency. Other common development interfaces are available including DirectShow, Video 4 Linux 2 and Medialooks MPlatform.
4K Neutron comes with a free SDK and free integration support.
Bluefish444 have developed IngeSTore as a multi-channel ingest tool, which is available FREE with all 4K Neutron I/O cards. IngeSTore allows capture of up to 4 channels of video with independent format SDI sources simultaneously. Capture to QuickTime, AVI and DVCPRO50/HD codecs for free, with additional codecs available via licencing.
