DTA-2174 - Quad 3G-SDI/ASI input/output ports for PCIe  

DTA-2174

Quad 3G-SDI/ASI input/output ports for PCIe

The industry's workhorse for interfacing SDI to PCs, with great OEM pricing.
Each of the four ports can be configured from software as input or output, and as
SD-, HD- or 3G-SDI port (and as ASI too!). The fifth port is a genlock input.

Features

  • Four independent software controllable bi-directional BNC ports, operable in ASI, SD-SDI, HD-SDI mode or 3G-SDI (level A or B) mode, with individual status LEDs, supporting uncompressed captures and playback in UHD (2160p50 or 2160p60).
  • Digital Genlock (through port 1) or analogue genlock input port (fifth port) accepts bi- and tri-level synchronization signals.
  • Two RS-422 ports for connection to a deck.
  • Full-frame capture and play-out is possible through the sophisticated DMA engine, but capturing a 1/4 or 1/16 hardware scaled resolution, for reducing PCIe bus bandwidth, is also possible.

Applications

  • Uncompressed UHD (4K) capturing, generation or processing a mix of SD-, HD-, 3G-SDI and/or ASI signals.
  • Live production mixer and effect generators.
  • General purpose 3G-SDI processor, for monitoring, recording or playing.
  • Video encoding and transcoding.

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.
