On the cusp of NAB 2004, IgniterX video capture card maker
Aurora Video Systems on Monday released the
PipeSDI video capture and editing card. The card is designed to support Final Cut Pro RT Extreme architecture, and features 10-bit SDI input and output with up to eight channels of embedded audio.
The card works exclusively with Macs and QuickTime-ready applications, so no additional software is needed to get the board to previewing video besides Apple Final Cut Pro. You can use the card as an extended desktop as well, to view images created using graphics applications like Adobe Photoshop. PipeSDI also enables real-time preview with Adobe After Effects and Discreet Combustion.
PipeSDI supports RS422 device control and also features a high-performance PCI core architecture optimized for Mac OS X v10.3 “Panther.” PipeSDI costs about US$500.
Look for Aurora Video Systems in NAB 2004 in booth SL5542. NAB runs from April 17 – 22, 2004 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
