In an industry that always demands “bigger and better” Bluefish444 have yet again delivered! This time we have gone one step further, the Epoch | 4K Neutron packs a massive amount of power into a form factor that defies belief. With three independent 3G SDI I/O connectors, an HDMI video output and options for AES EBU audio I/O, analogue audio output, LTC time code I/O, and RS422 machine control.

Epoch | 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 customizable full duplex asynchronous DMA engine deliver unrivalled developer flexibility.
The Epoch | 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 allow developers to plan for the unexpected and ensure that the show does go on.
Epoch | 4K Neutron can capture, play through and playout raw transport DVB ASI streams in addition to supporting SDI I/O. 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. That’s maximum transport flexibility for either live or file based workflows.
Epoch | 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.
Epoch | 4K Neutron offers a full height shield and optional connectivity making for ease of integration with traditional workstations and expansion chassis.
The Epoch | 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 Direct Show, Video 4 Linux 2 and Media Looks MPlatform.
Epoch | 4K Neutron comes with a free SDK and free integration support.
