Bluefish444 Adds Video Over IP and 4K HDR I/O to Adobe Video Tools

Bluefish444, manufacturer of the professional video industry’s highest-quality uncompressed 4K SDI, ASI, Video Over IP and HDMI I/O cards and mini converters, announces SMPTE 2022/2110 Video Over IP and 4K HDR support for the latest versions of the Adobe Creative Cloud video apps.

Bluefish444 KRONOS and Epoch SDI, HDMI, and video over IP I/O solutions are suited for Adobe’s professional video production tools, such as Adobe Premiere Pro CC and Adobe After Effects CC. Existing Epoch customers will have the ability to capture SMPTE 2022-6 Video Over IP streams directly within Adobe Premiere Pro CC through standard off-the-shelf 10Gb Network Interfaces, thanks to Bluefish444 IPConnect support. Customers opting to upgrade to KRONOS Optikos hardware will have access to capture and playout of SMPTE 2022/2110 Video over IP, in addition to groundbreaking 4K high frame rate HDR workflows via SDI and HDMI video I/O.

With GPU-accelerated performance for emerging post-production workflows, including 4K, VR and high dynamic range (HDR), Bluefish444 video cards and Adobe Creative Cloud video tools provide an ideal technology combination for creating cutting-edge content in all environments from broadcast to post-production.

Bluefish444 is demonstrating the upcoming KRONOS Optikos video I/O card, outputting SDI from Adobe Premiere Pro CC, with a simultaneous SMPTE 2110 uncompressed IP stream via 10Gb ethernet to a KRONOS-integrated broadcast graphics system. This shows a typical workflow for live events and broadcast to allow the addition of channel branding or other graphic overlays of a live video feed. Media from IngeSTore server 3G will be accessed by Adobe Premiere Pro CC while recording continues for a live Edit-While-Record workflow made possible through the growing files support of Bluefish444 IngeSTore software and Adobe Premiere Pro CC.

“Bluefish444 works with the Adobe video team to ensure users can make the most of advances in the industry, and the Adobe apps,” said Tom Lithgow, Bluefish444 Product Manager. “Thanks to GPU acceleration, and Bluefish444’s Adobe Mercury Transmit plugin, our many shared customers can be confident of smooth real-time video performance for UHD 4K 60fps and HDR content.”

“Performance is a priority for video production, enabling editors and content creators to focus on the creative process,” said Sue Skidmore, Head of Partner Relations for Professional Video at Adobe. “Bluefish444 graphics accelerate production with outstanding playback and beautifully rendered images.”
