Introducing the world's highest
quality all in one analog to digital/digital to analog
bi-directional converter and break out box for both
standard definition and high definition.
Extreme and Multibridge™
Studio are the world’s first all-in-one bidirectional
converters which instantly switch between HD and SD,
feature 4:2:2 and Dual Link 4:4:4 video quality, and
include the new high speed PCI Express connection - Use it
as the world's highest quality converter or as an I/O for
an advanced SD/HD editing system.
The All-in-one Standalone Converter
Finally there is a simple solution for
converting analog equipment to SDI-based digital systems
because Multibridge will simultaneously convert from
digital to analog, and analog to digital. That's true
bidirectional analog video and audio conversion.
Multibridge works as an independent converter. Rack mount
it so you can convert analog equipment such as Betacam SP
decks or HDV cameras.
Capture and Playback
Connect the built-in PCI Express 10 Gbps connection to any supported Windows XP or Mac OS X based computer and Multibridge instantly turns into the ultimate break out box capture and playback solution. At an amazingly high speed of 10
Gbps, PCI Express is 25 times faster than FireWire. PCI Express has the speed to handle high video data rate capture and playback, from 10 bit uncompressed standard definition and high definition video, right up to 12 bit RGB 4:4:4 feature film quality and beyond. PCI Express is low cost because it’s already built into many PC motherboards, and a high quality PCI Express connection cable and computer adapter is included free so you get a complete solution, ready to go. By using the optional PCI Express Bridge, you can also plug into
PCI-X slots, as found on Apple Macintosh G5 systems for the ultimate in compatibility.
High Definition or Standard Definition
Multibridge features dual rate SDI and is completely format agnostic, so you can switch between high definition or standard definition freely and instantly. You can just as easily connect to 270 Mbps standard definition SDI equipment such as Digital Betacam, as well as 1.485 Gbps high definition SDI equipment such as HDCAM or HD-D5 or even the extreme quality of 12 bit 4:4:4 as used on the new Sony HDCAM SR decks. With the ability to update new formats via USB, you can connect to virtually anything now, and in the future. Multibridge is ideal if you're only working in standard definition, but need to switch to high definition at any time. Only Multibridge allow you to move between standards this easily and is the ideal solution to moving to HD wile retaining compatibility with the standard definition equipment you have now.
Compatible with all Video Software
Multibridge Extreme and Multibridge Studio feature a high speed PCI Express connection so you can connect to a host computer, and then use a wide range of video software for video capture and playback. Multibridge is compatible with QuickTime and DirectShow so you can use any supported video software in either standard definition, high definition, or even 4:4:4 10 bit RGB HD. Unlike pre-built systems, with DeckLink you can customize your system for different tasks simply by selecting the video software you prefer to use. Use Final Cut Pro HD™ on Mac OS X, or Premiere Pro on Windows XP for editing, then combine Adobe After Effects and Photoshop for broadcast design and paint. Finish your job by using DVD authoring software to give your clients a DVD. That’s unlimited flexibility to work any way you want. Finally the choice is yours.
