Datapath Launches New ‘Ultimate Dual 4K’ Capture Card Ahead of ISE 2019

Datapath has launched a new dual 4K capture card, the VisionSC-UHD2, ahead of ISE 2019 – and it is the most powerful 4K card in the company’s portfolio.

Reinforcing their global reputation as a leader in video capture technology, Datapath’s Vision SC-UHD2 provides two HDMI 2.0 capture channels with HDCP 2.2 at 4K 60p and full 4:4:4 chroma sampling.

This latest high-end card compliments Datapath’s hugely successful Vision SC capture card family and offers the ultimate in frame grabber technology.

Datapath Product Manager, Mark Rogers, said: “AV integrators are demanding the highest resolution video when creating the most stunning visual displays and the new UHD2 addition to our Vision SC range is designed to meet and exceed that demand. Along with unparalleled performance and future-proof connectivity, end users also have the peace of mind that Datapath reliability brings. We believe the VisionSC-UHD2 to be the ultimate 4K capture card available to the market.”

Rogers’ claim is backed up by some impressive specifications. In order to capture two channels of 4K 60p 4:4:4 without any loss of quality or dropped frames, 4GB/s of raw data is needed and this requires a minimum of 8 lanes PCIe Gen3. Other dual 4K solutions offering 8 lanes of PCIe Gen2 are not enough once data bus overheads are accounted for.

With this in mind, Datapath’s VisionSC-UHD2 is the only professional solution with enough performance to handle 2 channels of 4K without any loss of quality or dropped frames.

With a full 10-bit processing pipeline, the VisionSC-UHD2 is suitable for the full spectrum of high quality displays, from command and control rooms to creative, high-end corporate applications.

Purposely designed for high performance controllers, Datapath’s latest card works seamlessly with the company’s latest iolite 12i chassis – delivering a single appliance, 12 output solution for 4K video walls and menu boards.

Datapath’s VisionSC-UHD card can be seen at ISE 2019, Hall 12, stand #H80.
