In an industry that always demands “bigger and better” Bluefish444 have yet again delivered! This time we have gone one step further, the Epoch | Neutron range packs a massive amount of power into a form factor that defies belief.

Bi-Directional I/O’s provide unrivalled flexibility Like its brethren, the Epoch | Neutrons provide flexibility like no other allowing industry standard BNC video connectors to be 3G/HD/SD SDI inputs or outputs.

World’s most accessible video card With an all new form factor Bluefish444’s Epoch | Neutron range opens a whole new galaxy of options! Bluefish444 have compressed functionality of much bigger cards into a low profile, half height PCIe video card allowing integration with rack mount, small form factor, PCIe, or Thunderbolt enclosures. A great price point allows unprecedented accessibility for all SDI I/O users from 3rd party SDK developers to video editors

Unified hardware, drivers and SDK The Bluefish444 unified driver extends to the Epoch | Neutron range making it fully compatible with Industry leading 3rd party content creation tools and the extensively developed Bluefish444 SDK. Platform independent hardware alongside unified Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux Drivers/SDK delivers a powerful package in every environment.

Simply Smarter – Condensing the form factor

Available with a low profile or full height shield, the Epoch | Neutron cards are not only in a low profile form factor but also half the length of a full size PCIe card. Many server products, rack mounted chassis and small form factor computers have little to no room for full sized PCIe Express cards. Epoch | Neutron cards are so compact
that some 2 RU servers can install up to 6 low profile Neutrons allowing unprecedented expandability in such a small space.

Thunderbolt Expansion Chassis Compatibility
Popular PCI Express and Thunderbolt expansion chassis are designed to be light and portable. The Epoch | Neutron range is compatible with them all from the smallest single slot devices right through to much larger multi-slot devices.

It’s Smaller, so what did we lose?
Bluefish444 have condensed much of the bigger cards’ functionality into a flexible, Low Profile and Half Height video card. But surely we have had to remove some features, or quality to do this, right? Wrong! Bluefish444 have maintained the build quality and the image quality found in our bigger cards and have even added
new features!

Maintaining a 12-bit processing pipeline
A 12-bit image processing pipeline is standard on all Bluefish444 video cards. This allows 8, 10 & 12-bit SDI video signals to be produced from 8, 10, 12 & 16-bit pixel formats providing the highest image quality available from your source material. A 12-bit image pipe means that 4096 discreet values of red, green & blue are maintained per pixel; that’s 64 times the colour precision of a traditional 10-bit processing pipeline!

Maintaining the highest quality RGB <=> YUV
The fully programmable 4 x 4 x 33-bit colour matrix reduces colour space conversion errors and ensures the highest quality colour accuracy during capture, monitoring and mastering.

The fully programmable 4 x 4 x 33-bit colour matrix reduces colour space conversion errors and ensures the highest quality colour accuracy during capture, monitoring and mastering.

Primary Hardware Colour Corrector
When the Bluefish444 programmable matrix is combined with the onboard 1D LUTs it provides a powerful primary hardware colour corrector. 4 x 1D x 12-bit LUTs on all SDI outputs gives maximum control over lift, gamma and gain prior to monitoring or masteringyour precious video assets. 

NEW Low Latency Video Keyer
The new low latency hardware video keyer enables video layers tobe combined in hardware with microseconds delay. This feature allows animated logo’s, captions, ticker tapes, etc. to be keyed overlive video feeds at full 12-bit precision and with minimum latency. The hardware keyer can also function as an image pre-multiplier
to assist in previewing images with alpha data.

HDMI 1.4 Monitoring
Both Epoch | Neutron cards include a cost effective HDMI 1.4amonitoring solution, with deep colour and can even extend to higher than HD resolution support. 

With the Epoch | Neutron range there is a variety of both low profile and full height shield options allowing the same physical hardware to be used in any number of applications and inside any number of enclosures or chassis.

Flexible, Cross Platform SDK support

With the Epoch | Neutron range there is a variety of both low profile and full height shield options allowing the same physical hardware to be used in any number of applications and inside any number of enclosures or chassis. Options, Options, and more Options Our Windows, Linux and Mac OS X SDK’s share a common API allowing developers to port from one platform to another with greater ease and efficiency. An extensive set of samples and interfaces are provided making integration of Bluefish444 cards with developer applications extremely efficient.
