DeltaCast Unveils Four-Channel Multi-Use 4K Processing And Playout Card

DeltaCast will show its commitment to 4K graphics production and file-based workflows at NAB 2015.

The company will unveil its new DELTA-3G-elp-d 4c, a four-channel card that can be configured via software as a four-input capture device, a four-output playout card, or even as a two-input and two-output 3G-SDI interface. Thanks to a new hardware architecture that delivers improved performance, the new card supports 4K reception or transmission in all formats and standards, including SMPTE 425-5.

Also on display will be a new 4K hardware-based keyer that allows users to overlay 4K graphics over a live feed. They can also use the card as four independent 1080p hardware keyers.

One year ago, DeltaCast offered technology that could handle 4K transmission and reception over four 3G-SDI links, or over two 6G-SDI links. However, the company said the ultimate way of distributing 4K streams is on a single 12G-SDI cable. While SMPTE committees still draft new standards for 12G-SDI interfaces, DeltaCast is already working on preliminary support for this emerging format.

DeltaCast will exhibit at NAB 2015 in booth SL12713
