Dual-Input 12G SDI 4K Card from Magewell Ships

Magewell today announced the immediate availability of its new Pro Capture Dual SDI 4K Plus video and audio capture card with support for multiple 4K SDI interface standards with dual-channels. The Pro Capture Dual SDI 4K Plus captures 4K video at full 60 frames per second over single-link 12G-SDI, dual-link 6G-SDI or quad-link 3G-SDI connections. Single-link, 12Gbps SDI provides a solution for professional 4K transport using just one cable per source, but many 4K products still offer only quad-link or dual-link connectivity.

The Pro Capture Dual SDI 4K Plus captures two channels of video at resolutions up to the 4096×2160 4K digital cinema specification, including the 3840×2160 Ultra HD (UHD) TV standard. Both inputs can be used simultaneously with independent resolutions, frame rates, processing settings and SDI connectivity standards. Each input source — including video and SDI-embedded audio — can be routed to multiple software applications in parallel, again with varying capture parameters for each program.

The Pro Capture Dual SDI 4K Plus performs high-quality, 10-bit video processing including up/down/cross-conversion, image adjustments and graphic overlay in the card’s on-board FPGA with zero impact on the host system’s CPU, maximizing CPU availability for third-party software. Magewell’s universal Pro Capture drivers support Windows, Mac and Linux operating systems while offering broad compatibility with popular encoding, streaming, live production, collaboration, web conferencing, lecture capture, medical imaging and virtual reality (VR) creation software.

Here are all the specs.
