Video graphics and compression card manufacturer, Bluefish444 has announced their Bluefish444 Epoch video cards will now support Ross Video XPression's upcoming version 8.5 release. Ross Video's XPression is one of the fastest growing real-time motion graphics generation system in the industry today.
For the Bluefish444 Epoch range, Ross Video have implemented 3G/HD SDI Fill/Key output and Fill input with embedded audio, auxiliary genlock as SDI input or free-running reference, and a watchdog timer to relay the input to output on failure. These features give XPression customers the ability to use Epoch’s industry proven stability, lowest latency and highest quality SDI video I/O for their real-time broadcast graphics workflow.
“Our broadcast graphics customer base has been long been demanding support for Ross Video XPression,” said Craige Mott Managing Director, Bluefish444. “Initially we are supporting Xpression with traditional 3G/HD SDI Fill and Key, however, we plan to work with Ross engineers in the not too distant future to add support for 4K HFR SDI and SMPTE Video Over IP standards.”
“Bluefish444 have been a great partner for Ross Video, and we are happy to support their Epoch cards in the latest release of XPression software,” comments Patrick Twomey, Director of XPression Product Marketing for Ross Video. “Now, XPression customers who prefer to build their own hardware engines for XPression can leverage the Bluefish444 Epoch video I/O card range, using the updated drivers on XPression.”
Ross Video will have their latest XPression version 8.5 on show at IBC Show 2018. Thanks to access to content with no input lag between keypress and response, clean easy to use interfaces, and allowing for full scalability depending on requirements, XPression is a platform to suit any broadcast graphics workflow.
Bluefish444’s Epoch video I/O card range, compatible with Ross Video XPression, is available from Bluefish444 authorised distributors and resellers worldwide. Bluefish444 will be at stand 7.B44 at IBC Show 2018.
