Features

  • Twelve fully independent ports, configurable from software as input or output, ASI or SDI, in SD/HD/3G or 4K mode.
  • External synchronization of SDI outputs via port 1 (digital genlock), or with analogue genlock port accepting bi- and tri-level sync.
  • Great support for writing applications with DekTec Matrix API 2.0. No need to know low-level SDI details and no need to be proficient with real-time multi-threaded programming.

Application Examples

  • Live production mixer with advanced software-based effects, mixing 10 camera inputs to a main- and clean output feed, all HD-SDI.
  • Multiviewer with a mix of compressed (ASI) and uncompressed (SDI) inputs. The hardware scaler keeps the PCIe bus load acceptable.
  • Any software application that requires many inputs, in image processing, virtual reality, high-profile security, etc.

Block Diagram

The DTA-2179 features twelve independent transmit/receive channels, each consisting of a cable equalizer, ASI/SDI receiver, ASI/SDI transmitter, matrix logic, a high-performance DMA controller and a PCIe interface.
