DeckLink IP cards are the easiest way to capture and play back video directly into 2110 IP based broadcast systems! They have the same DeckLink features so all your existing software will just work! DeckLink IP cards support multiple video channels plus each channel can capture and play back at the same time. This means you can build racks of servers generating broadcast graphics, virtual sets, or GPU based AI image processing, all directly integrated into 2110 IP broadcast infrastructure. You can even use DaVinci Resolve for 2110 IP based broadcast editing workstations! DeckLink IP features a high speed PCIe connection so it works on the latest Mac Pro, Windows and Linux computers.

10G Ethernet for Multiple SMPTE 2110 IP Channels

DeckLink IP cards conform to the SMPTE ST2110 standard for IP video, which specifies the transport, synchronization and description of video, audio and ancillary data over managed IP networks for broadcast. It also keeps video sources in sync using a common PTP clock. DeckLink IP supports SMPTE-2110-20 uncompressed video, SMPTE-2110-21 traffic shaping/timing, SMPTE-2110-30 audio and SMPTE-2110-40 for ancillary data. The big advantage of SMPTE 2110 is all video, audio and ancillary data are transported independently over the network. Plus DeckLink IP supports multicast, which is an extremely efficient way of distributing video, audio and data from a single source to multiple destinations.

Built in Video Firewall for Total IP Network Security

The problem with computers and 2110 IP video networks is the vulnerability to rogue software or even hackers. That’s because anyone can send data to the computer’s Ethernet connection. However DeckLink IP eliminates this problem because all video is transferred using frame buffers. It’s like a video based firewall! This means the DeckLink IP Ethernet port is isolated from anything other than video and audio. Instead, like all DeckLink cards, the video and audio are transferred to on board DeckLink frame buffers where video playback is managed and then converted to 2110 IP video channels. This means it’s totally impossible for rogue software or hackers to access the 2110 IP network directly!

High Speed 4 Lane PCIe Connection

With a high speed 4 lane PCI Express interface, DeckLink IP cards feature a PCIe connection to the host computer that's fast enough to handle multiple HD video channels, as well as simultaneous capture and playback on each of the channels. With PCI Express, you get very low latency combined with highly accurate time synchronization to the software that's capturing or playing video. Only DeckLink IP cards give you this performance all while using a simple and low cost 4 lane PCIe connection. This means you can install DeckLink IP into compact and very low cost computers. Plus DeckLink IP HD and DeckLink IP HD Optical are low profile, so they can be installed in rack mount servers.

Supports All SD and HD Formats up to 1080p60!

DeckLink IP connections are multi rate so they support all SD and HD formats. Plus the DeckLink IP/SDI HD model includes both 2110 IP and 3G-SDI on the same card, so it can connect to all your existing SDI broadcast equipment, while simultaneously connecting to new IP based infrastructure. Or you can just use the 3G-SDI output for local monitoring! In standard definition, DeckLink IP supports both 525i59.94 and 625i50 standards.

In high definition, DeckLink IP cards support all 720p video standards up to 720p60, all 1080 interlaced standards up to 1080i60 and all 1080p standards up to 1080p60. Plus there is no complex change over as the cards can switch instantly to a new video standard.

Get True 10-Bit Broadcast Video Quality

DeckLink IP cards are designed to support the highest quality video. You get support for capture and playback to popular video formats such as Apple ProRes, DNxHD or even 10-bit uncompressed, so you’re never locked into a single file format. 10-bit is the most commonly used television standard as colors can be represented with 4 times the precision of 8-bit video.

Only working with 10-bit uncompressed video will ensure all images are a perfect pixel for pixel clone of the original source, so you’re always working at the absolute highest quality possible. This means you get the sharpest green screen keying, seamless VFX compositions and superior color correction!

Includes NMOS Protocol for Building a Virtual Router

DeckLink IP supports the NMOS interface specifications so all 2110 IP video devices can operate together as a large virtual router. Plus Videohub Smart Control can route sources to destinations on 2110 IP networks because it can act as an NMOS controller. The NMOS interface specification describes how SMPTE 2110 devices such as DeckLink IP are discovered and controlled on IP networks. DeckLink IP supports IS-04 for discovery and registration of IP video devices and IS-05 for connection management between IP video devices. This means you can make connections between sources and destinations just like a traditional SDI router, but all within the Ethernet network!
