In addition to the traditional YCbCr pixel format commonly used in TV broadcasting, the DELTA-12G-elp 4C also provides support for RGB 4:4:4 formats in 10 and 12 bits for full color depth.


Compact Robust, 8K

The DELTA-12G-elp 4C is a streamlined and compact SDI card with a versatile set of features. Designed with high-performance live video applications in mind, this card boasts a half-length, low-profile form factor, with passive heatsink and BNC connectors for optimal robustness. Equipped with 4x 12G-SDI bi-directional channels, this I/O card offers remarkable flexibility. These interfaces can operate individually, facilitating the capture and playback of video up to 4K60. Alternatively, they can be combined to handle 8K60 video using either square division or 2-sample interleave methods. The DELTA-12G-elp 4C's specialized design allows it to excel in demanding scenarios involving uncompressed video formats. This is made possible by a range of hardware features, including CPU off-loading, Ultimate Low Latency, RDMA, advanced packing techniques, proxy scalers, support for HDR formats, SDI signal error diagnostics, and comprehensive audio and metadata extraction and embedding capabilities.


Unified SDK for developers
