DVEO Launches Affordable Single Channel Multi-standard SD-SDI & HD-SDI Input or Output Card

DVEO unveils a 2-in-01 SD-SDI and HD-SDI input or output card targeted for use in video servers and workstations. Called the HD-SDI Master I or O PCIe LP, this peripheral allows both input and outputs that converts the input card to an output card, and vice-versa.

HD-SDI (SMPTE 292M) is the primary interface worldwide for High Definition digital uncompressed video. SD-SDI (SMPTE 259M) is the primary interface for Standard Definition digital video.


  • One software selectable HD/SD-SDI input or output channel on a low profile PCI Express card
  • Input card can be converted to output card, or output card can be converted to input card
  • Receives or transmits uncompressed HD/SD-SDI at bit rate up to 1.485 Gbps
  • One lane (x1) low profile PCIe v1.1 card
  • Uses highly efficient Bus Master Link List DMA for data transfer (saving CPU resources)
  • Supported standards include 1080i, and 720p at 50 Hz, 60 Hz and 59.94 Hz rates, and 1080p at 23.97 Hz, 24 Hz, 25 Hz, 29.97 Hz and 30 Hz
  • Onboard DDR memory buffers data to account for latencies in data transactions on the PCIe bus
  • Able to store four frames of data in either V210 or UYVY (also called Four CC code)
  • Handles up to 8 channels of embedded audio
  • Field Upgradeable Firmware
  • RoHS compliant (2002/95/EC)
  • Linux and Windows support
  • Receiver: Automatic Standards detection, Automatic cable equalization of up to 200m of Belden 1694A cable at 1.485 Gbps, Input monitoring of CRC errors for both the Y and Cb/Cr lines of the input stream
  • Transmitter: Tri-level sync input for transmit frame and rate synchronization

The HD-SDI Master I or O PCIe LP carries an MSRP of $995.
