Bluefish444 Announces Drastic Technologies Support for Kronos

Bluefish444 has announced forthcoming Drastic Technologies support for the Bluefish444 KRONOS Range.

Drastic Technologies have been supporting Bluefish444 Epoch hardware SDI for many years in their MediaNXS, 4KScope and videoQC software. Updates to the Drastic Technologies software brings with it support for the Bluefish444 KRONOS Range features, including SMPTE 2022/2110 Video Over IP, SDI and HDMI video and audio capture and playout.

4KScope lets customers analyse IP, SDI and HDMI signals at up to 4K 60fps in HDR and SDR with Bluefish444 KRONOS hardware. This combination makes for a cost-effective signal analysis, with waveform, vectorscope, histogram, chromaticity and a host of other scopes included. VideoQC is a suite of tools designed to review and analyse media files for QC applications. 

VideoQC provides a range of capabilities from basic file VGA viewing, to industry-standard scopes, IP, SDI, HDMI 2.0 output via Bluefish444 hardware, and quality assurance with trim/export, full reference comparisons, and reports.
