Open Broadcast Systems Launches SDI Card For Low-latency Software

Open Broadcast Systems latest SDI card is claimed to deliver the lowest latency of any card available as well as operating with high density and increased performance.

The vendor says it has redesigned the standard SDI processing functions, “to drastically improve upon current end to end latency rates, resulting in a huge reduction in processing delay.” Improvements have also been made to playback functionality to minimise buffering in order to improve overall performance.

Kieran Kunhya, CEO, OBS commented: “This announcement represents years of hard work from our dedicated team. Our aim was to apply 21st century development practices to a legacy application such as SDI. The design decisions we have made have resulted in huge latency improvements. There is no other card like this on the market.”

The SDI card has already been deployed for a large-scale project and is currently only available for use with Open Broadcast Systems products.
