Multi-channel 4K/UHD output from Avid products with Bluefish KRONOS K8
Bluefish444, manufacturer of the professional video industry’s highest-quality uncompressed video interface cards and signal converters, announces support for its KRONOS K8 multi-channel 4K/UHD SDI card with Avid Media Composer® and Avid Pro Tools® 2020 content creation software tools via the latest Bluefish Windows 2020.14.1 installer package.
Bluefish’s K8 video I/O card and the Epoch range are now fully supported within the latest versions of Media Composer and Pro Tools, giving production and post-production professionals access to the highest quality SDI capture and playback support.
With K8, Media Composer users are now able to playback multiple channels of 4K/UHD SDI from their timeline using Bluefish’s proprietary 12-bit processing engine for maximum quality. The 2020.14.1 update also expands support for Epoch cards to the latest versions of Media Composer and Pro Tools. Both K8 and Epoch cards have full support for High Frame Rate and HDR workflows, and SDI capture from Media Composer.
Bluefish brings unique solutions to Avid® customers with the highest quality video interface to allow capture and playout of professional video and audio signals. In addition, Bluefish offers complimentary recording workflows with bundled IngeSTore software. When using both IngeSTore and Media Composer together, recording can be carried out in the background while Media Composer edits the clips and outputs through Bluefish Avid-Certified hardware.
“We are extremely happy to announce our continued support of the Avid Media Composer and Pro Tools software,” said Tom Lithgow, Product Manager at Bluefish444. “Using Bluefish and Avid software together enables unique access to professional sport, live event recording and Edit-While-Record workflows.”
"Bluefish has been an Avid certified partner since 2011 and we're excited to see this updated installer with KRONOS K8 support for Media Composer and Pro Tools" said Raymond Thompson, Director of Product Market Solutions – Broadcast and Media. “Both Avid and Bluefish customers can now enjoy support for the latest iterations of our software working with Bluefish hardware for 2K to 4K projects".
