Bluefish reveals Kronos for UHD31 August 2016
Bluefish444 has introduced its Kronos range of video, audio and data processing and I/O cards.
The new line extends the feature set of its Epoch video cards, which support up to 4K 60fps workflows. Kronos is developed for additional use with UHD up to 8K, high frame rates up to 120fps, HDR and video-over-IP.
With these capabilities, Bluefish444 cards are developed to support all areas of TV and feature film production, post, display and restoration, in addition to VR and AR. For use in theme parks, music concerts and outdoor events, the Kronos range is also recommended for single and multi-card support for 8K/4K/2K imagery presented across one or more screens or projectors.
According to Bluefish444, Kronos supports video processing technologies including resolution scaling, video interlace and de-interlace; hardware Codec support, SDI to IP and IP to SDI conversion, and continues to offer the 12-bit colour space conversion and low-latency capabilities of Epoch.
Tom Lithgow, product manager, Bluefish444, said: “With the choice of HD BNC SD/HD/3G connectivity, or SFP+ connectivity enabling greater than 3G SDI and video-over-IP across 10gbps ethernet, the Kronos range will suit today’s demanding requirements and cover emerging technologies as they mature.”
