• 12G-SDI input port for ingesting UHD signals up to 4Kp50/60
• 12G-SDI output port with HDMI 2.0 copy for creating UHD signals up to 4Kp50/60
• Bi-level and tri-level genlock input port, or digital genlock through port 1
• 4-lane PCI Express generation 3 interface for ample bus bandwidth
• Hardware and Matrix API 2.0 provide effi-cient and convenient access to SDI frames:
– Separation of audio (all channels) and ancillary data
– On-board 1/4 or 1/16 video scaling for generating previews
– Sophisticated DMA engine
– Conversion from and to 16-bit data
• Free drivers and SDK (DTAPI) for Linux and Windows 7/8/10



• General purpose I/O card for processing 12G-SDI streams in a PC
• Flexible ASI/SDI stream station (generator, analyzer) for all SDI rates up 12G-SDI
• 4K software encoder (H.264, HEVC) with 12G-SDI input and ASI output

 DekTec Matrix API

  • Organizes incoming HD-SDI data in a matrix of frame buffers, so that frames can be accessed as a function of port number and time.
  • Synchronization of multiple input streams is straightforward: Frames with the same arrival time are stored in the same column.
  • Read or write to individual lines, HANC, VANC or full frame.
  • Access functions for embedding or de-embedding audio or other ANC data.
  • Supports all 16-audio channels.
  • Integrated and fully compatible with DTAPI.
