: At the IBC2017 exhibition in Amsterdam next month,

Magewell

 -- an award-winning developer of innovative video interface devices -- will launch the

Flex I/O HDMI 4i2o

, the second card in the company's new Flex I/O family of versatile PCI Express input/output cards. The new model will be showcased in Magewell's stand (8.A84) at the event, where the recently-announced

Flex I/O SDI 4i2o

will also make its European debut.

Building on Magewell's hallmarks of superior quality, reliability and feature-richness, the Flex I/O series extends the benefits of the company's popular capture devices to output and playout applications while filling a market need for high-performance, easy-to-use output cards at affordable pricing.

Combining outstanding channel density with exceptional flexibility, the first two Flex I/O models each feature four input channels and two outputs. Setting the Flex I/O family apart from other interface cards, all inputs and outputs can be used simultaneously with independently differing resolutions, frame rates and processing settings. Each input channel can also be routed to multiple software applications in parallel, enabling concurrent tasks such as live streaming, recording and playout, all from a single card.

The

Flex I/O HDMI 4i2o

, which will be shown publicly for the first time at IBC, features HDMI connectivity and supports HD and 2K video with up to eight channels of embedded audio per input or output. The

Flex I/O SDI 4i2o

, previewed at the NAB Show earlier this year, captures and outputs video up to 2048x1080 over 3Gbps SDI interfaces, plus up to 16 channels of embedded audio in each SDI signal. SDI input channels, as well as the two outputs, can be paired for dual-link SDI connectivity.

Like Magewell's renowned capture cards, the Flex I/O family features 10-bit, FPGA-based video processing, providing high-quality up/down-conversion, video adjustments, graphic overlay and more while maximizing CPU availability for third-party software. Drivers for the Flex I/O cards will be available for Windows, Linux and Mac operating systems. Support for popular APIs such as DirectShow and V4L2 enables extensive software compatibility, while a comprehensive SDK will allow third-party developers to directly take advantage of the cards' full advanced feature set.

"As our first cards with output capabilities, the Flex I/O family opens up new markets for Magewell while enabling users, developers and integrators to take advantage of our proven performance and reliability for a much broader range of professional use cases," said Fei Ma, Chief Technical Officer at Magewell. "The addition of the

Flex I/O HDMI 4i2o

to the product line lets customers benefit from the cards' superior channel density and flexibility while giving them a choice of their preferred signal connectivity."

Both Flex I/O models are expected to begin shipping in late September. For more information about Magewell, please visit
