DVEO Launches Affordable Single Channel Multi-standard SD-SDI & HD-SDI Input or Output Card with Auto Detection



New Multi-standard Transmitter or Receiver Card Now Shipping; Includes Support for Linux® or Windows® OS

San Diego, CA -- DVEO, the broadcast division of CMI, is now shipping their newest SD-SDI and HD-SDI input or output card targeted for use in video servers and workstations.

HD-SDI Master(TM) I or O PCIe LP is a single channel HD/SD-SDI (SMPTE 292M and SMPTE 259M) input or output card. A simple firmware change converts the input card to an output card, and vice-versa --- providing the functionality of two cards for the price of one. Supported standards include 1080i and 720p at 50 Hz, 60 Hz and 59.94 Hz rates, and 1080p at 23.97 Hz, 24 Hz, 25 Hz, 29.97 Hz and 30 Hz.Supported video standards include 1080i, 1080p, and 720p at 25 Hz and 30 Hz rates.

HD-SDI (SMPTE 292M) is the primary interface worldwide for High Definition digital uncompressed video. SD-SDI (SMPTE 259M) is the primary interface for Standard Definition digital video.

On board DDR memory and a proprietary firmware design are used to buffer the transmit data to account for system latency as the data flows from the PCIe bus.

The input features for the HD-SDI Master I or O PCIe LP include automatic standards detection between 720 and 1080, automatic cable equalization, and input monitoring of CRC errors. The output mode features tri-level sync input for transmit frame and rate synchronization, so transmit streams can be synchronized with other HD/SD-SDI streams for switching, editing and overlays.

Software support includes free drivers for Linux®, Windows® XP, Windows® Server 2003 and Windows® Server 2008, plus full DirectShow® support. A developer API, as well as sample applications, are also provided.

"We're proud to help broadcasters, production companies, and corporate media departments meet the fast-growing demand for HD content," said Laszlo Zoltan, Sales Manager for DVEO. "Our HD-SDI Master card is ideal for HD-SDI servers, post-processing, capturing or sending HD or SD video, and electronic news gathering. And because it can switch between receiving and transmitting, it is an excellent value."

The new single channel HD-SDI card will be featured in Europe at the International Broadcasting Convention (IBC) in Amsterdam, September 11-15, at Stand 2.C33.
