Unwrapping KRONOS for Ultra HD10 September 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 60 frame per second workflows. KRONOS is developed for additional use with Ultra HD up to 8K, high frame rates up to 120fps,
high dynamic range 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 virtual reality and augmented reality. 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.”
