DeltaCast Adds HDR Support Across Video Cards

DeltaCast continues to add new support for high dynamic range (HDR) formats across its range of video capture cards. With its latest VideoMaster OEM SDK (v.6.04) for DeltaCast products under Windows, Linux and macOS, HDR format signaling can be added to all DeltaCast SDI cards. This makes HDR capability accessible for all developers on DeltaCast products.

The VideoMaster SDK is a software interface to communicate with DeltaCast video cards and to design your own products and applications.

DeltaCast’s first product to support HDR is the dual-channel HDMI 2.0b video card. In addition, DeltaCast’s free EDID Editor application now supports CTA 861-G extension blocks dealing with HDR static and dynamic metadata linked to HDMI 2.0.
