Christie Leverages Deltacast Video Interfaces

Deltacast has introduced a new compact audio networking solution that offers both HDMI and SDI interfacing on a single PCIe interface card.

With both interface types available on the same device, it is a single product to integrate, a single vendor to talk with, and it only uses one PCI Express slot. Moreover, a unique board makes it much simpler to synchronize the HDMI and SDI feeds. Th product can also host many combinations of HDMI and SDI inputs and outputs.

New Delta-12g1c-hmi10-elp features include:

  • Four 3G-SDI bidirectional channels, with one of them being upgraded for 6G and 12G-SDI support
  • One HDMI™ 2.0b input
  • One genlock reference input supporting analog Blackburst and tri-level signals
  • Unrestricted support for dual UHDTV (4K60) use cases
  • Onboard color processing features (color space converters, chroma resampler, planar buffer packing)
  • Proxy scalers
  • Embedded audio and HDR metadata support
  • Uses Deltacast’s unified VideoMaster SDK

This new product suits very well the requirements of the Christie Pandoras Box family of hardware and software tools. Christie has been among the first vendors to integrate the new Delta-12g1c-hmi10-elp.

“This board offers input variety and therefore allows flexibility to our customers for any requirements in various circumstances,” said Markus Zeppenfeld, Product Manager at Christie.

Deltacast said it is working on the next boards of this new line of products.
