Full-featured software development kit (SDK) for optimization of both the graphics and SDI Output solution
The NVIDIA SDI SDK provides ease of programmability and control of the entire SDI pipeline – capturing, processing, and final delivery.
NVIDIA Quadro SDI OUTPUT
Uncompressed 8-, 10-, or 12-Bit SDI Output
Enables on-air broadcast, video production and post production professionals to composite and output live video and graphics to true, uncompressed 12-bit SDI in 2K, SD, or HD resolutions and allows direct connection to a broadcast monitor, switcher, tape deck, or SDI projector.
Ancillary Data Support
Supports the insertion of SMPTE RP188 ancillary data into the outgoing SDI video. This ancillary data can include up to 16 channels of embedded 24-bit digital audio as defined by SMPTE 272M and SMPTE 299M, time code and custom packets.
Genlock (House Synchronization)
One genlock (Standard BNC) connector (digital or analog) provides connectivity to a video sync source for SMPTE standard (digital, black burst, tri-level) synchronization. Expanded cross sync functionality permits an incoming house signal to synchronize to a much larger number of video output signal formats.
Output up to 2-SDI Video Feeds from GPU Memory
NVIDIA Quadro SDI Output card connects directly to supported NVIDIA Quadro graphics cards to output video directly from GPU memory to SDI. This direct access delivers the industry’s lowest latency SDI output directly from GPU memory.
