VC400DE-SDI Quad channel SDI capture



  • 3Gbps -SDI

    VC400DE-SDI fully supports SD/HD/3G-SDI, and enables to embed 8-channel audio signals at 48KHz. You can connect it to any devices with SDI interface. Each interface supports SD, HD, or even 3Gb/s SDI speed. SDI interface has been widely applied to radio and television industry. It is digital transmission and supports embedded audio. The transmission is done by a 75-Ohms coaxial cable. The coaxial cable is widely used in cable TV and can be purchased easily. It supports long-distance transmission. It can transmit 100m when it’s at 1080p/60Hz while above 200m when it’s at 1080i/60hz.

    High Bandwidth Transmission

    The Vc400DE-SDI adoptsthe PCI-Express x4 interface and does not need to apply bandwidth from the bus, which can provides higher transmission speed and quality. The actual transmission speed can reach 700 MB/s which solves the bandwidth requirements when 4 channels of 3G-SDI are captured simultaneously.

    HD & Multichannel Capturing Solution

    VC400DE-SDI can simultaneously capture 4-channel SD/HD/3G-SDI signals, which can completely meets the needs of HD & multichannel capturing solutions. Compared with similar combination, VC400DE-SDI can help you effectively lower the cost and power consumption of system, improve the system stability at the same time.

    High Performance

    The VC400DE-SDI adopts high-speed PCI-Express x4 interface, with the transmission bandwidth at 700 MB/s. The color space switch, image processing like image mirror, scale, de-interlace will be done within FPGA. It largely reduces the CPU, and effective DMA transmission further releases the capability of CPU.

    Low Power Consumption

    The VC100DE-SDI can simultaneously capture 4-channel SD/HD/3G-SDI signals while the power consumption is only 8w which is only 1/2 of similar products.

    Powerful Stability

    All the chips and capacity components adopt the design of 6 layers. The performance is better than similar products. It can easily work for long hours 7×24 hours without stop.
