Bluefish444 Demonstrates SDI & Video Over IP Solutions at the 2018 NAB SHOW

Bluefish444 will be demonstrating the KRONOS range of video, audio and data processing I/O cards across numerous workflows at 2018 NAB Show.

KRONOS has been developed to enable workflows requiring multi-channel Ultra HD, high dynamic range video, SMPTE 2022/2110 Video Over IP, and supports high frame rates up to 120fps. KRONOS hardware is 8K ready, with the capacity to support future 8K video workflows.

Bluefish444 will be demonstrating KRONOS Elektron and KRONOS Optikos at NAB Show 2018 with 4K HDR output from Adobe Premiere Pro CC, simultaneous SDI and IP playout from Avid Media Composer, and 8 channel SDI ingest with Bluefish444’s new IngeSTream IP streaming software. 

KRONOS video hardware will be supported by industry leading manufacturers and software partners within the Production, Post-production, and Broadcast markets. Many of these partners will be announcing and demonstrating this support at NAB Show 2018.
