DELTA-12G-elp-h 04

Compact quad channel 12G SDI playout card

Innovative solution for multi-channel 12G SDI playout in a compact PCIe gen-3 x8 low profile form factor. The DELTA-12G-elp-h 04 hosts eight independent output ports. Four of these ports supports line rates up to 12G SDI while the others go up to 3G-SDI, allowing support of output streams from SD to 8K60. The card provides playout of 8x 3G-SDI or 4x UHD streams without any compromise, over any type of interface (Quad-Link 3G Square Division, Quad-Link 3G 2-Sample Interleave, or Single Link 12G). Moreover, DELTA-12G-elp-h 04 can output 8K formats (up to 8K60) in Quad-Link 12G/6G Square Division and 2-Sample Interleave, from four 4K buffers or from a single 8K buffer in PC memory. 

DELTA-12G-elp-h 04 also adds interesting features for playout applications such as, color space converters, planar buffer unpacking, advance clocking option including a software-based SDI clock dynamic control, a low-latency DMA engine, LTC reference input option, HDR formats support, etc. With such a versatility and cutting-edge performances, while still fitting in a very compact and robust form factor, the DELTA-12G-elp-h 04 is the ideal solution for high-end multi-channel UHD and 8K playout applications.

DELTA-12G-elp-h 04 is the natural evolution of our 8-output 3G products to enable support of 4x12G interfaces.
