Epoch | 4K Supernova S+ offers developers complete flexibility to choose between BNC connectors. With bi-directional connectivity built-in, developers choose whether they want the BNC connectors to be either input, output, 4K, UHD, 2K, HD or SD SDI. Synchronise multiple cards, reduce hardware costs and increase your I/O capabilities. 4K Supernova S+ gives developers more choice and flexibility than ever before.

Synchronising two 4K Supernova S+ using the BF Lock feature will create the performance required for capture and playback of 4K/UHD 3G-SDI up to 60 fps with no change to system configuration or cabling.
4K Supernova S+ 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 20+ years of continuous development making it extraordinarily reliable. An MR2 routing resource alongside a customisable full-duplex asynchronous DMA engine deliver unrivalled developer flexibility.
4K Supernova S+ 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 allow developers to plan for the unexpected and ensure that the show does go on.
4K Supernova S+ features 4 bi-directional 3G/1.5G/HD/SD-SDI video and audio I/O’s, a 5th BNC for SDI monitoring and a dedicated sixth genlock BNC. 4K Supernova S+ EX adds 7.1 surround sound AES/EBU audio I/O, analogue audio output, LTC I/O and RS-422.
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, Video4Linux2 and Medialooks MPlatform.
4K Supernova S+ 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 Supernova S+ 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 licensing.
