Quality, reliability, flexibility, lowest-latency & fail-safes

Epoch | 4K Supernova. Quality, Reliability, Flexibility, Lowest Latency & Failsafes.

4K Supernova 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 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.
