The Magewell Pro Capture Dual SDI 4K Plus is a two-Channel 4K Capture Card that allows you to capture up to two channels 12-G SDI , four channels 6G-SDI or 8 channels 3G-SDI. Capture two 12G-SDI signals in one of the following connecting methods:


 

Description

..Magewell Pro Capture Dual SDI 4K Plus captures 4K video at full 60 frames per second. This over single-link 12G-SDI, dual-link 6G-SDI or quad-link 3G-SDI connections. Single-link, 12Gb/s SDI provides an elegant solution for professional 4K transport using just one cable per source. But many 4K products still offer only quad-link or dual-link connectivity. With support for all three methods, the Pro Capture Dual SDI 4K Plus card provides compatibility with both the latest and earlier 4K architectures and equipment.

The Pro Capture Dual SDI 4K Plus also captures two channels of video at resolutions up to the 4096×2160 4K digital cinema specification, including the 3840×2160 Ultra HD (UHD) TV standard. Both inputs can be used simultaneously with independent resolutions, frame rates, processing settings and SDI connectivity standards. Each input source including video and SDI-embedded audio can be routed to multiple software applications in parallel.  Again with varying capture parameters for each program.

The Magewell Pro Capture Dual SDI 4K Plus solution performs high-quality, 10-bit video processing. Including up/down/cross-conversion, image adjustments and graphic overlay in the card’s on-board FPGA with zero impact on the host system’s CPU. This maximising the CPU availability for third-party software. The company’s universal Pro Capture drivers support Windows, Mac and Linux operating systems. While offering broad compatibility with popular encoding, streaming, live production, collaboration, web conferencing, lecture capture, medical imaging and virtual reality (VR) creation software.

Multiple 4K Pro Capture cards can be used simultaneously in the same system to further increase multi-channel capture density, while Magewell’s comprehensive SDK enables third-party developers to directly leverage the full advanced feature set of the devices in custom software applications and turnkey solutions.
