(Hong Kong, 2007 March 19) Dayang has chosen the National Association of Broadcasters' Spring Convention in April to launch the broadest and most versatile range of PC/video plug-in cards ever introduced at a single venue. The new cards allow broadcast-quality video signals to be processed in the latest generation of high-speed PCs.
Dayang's Redbridge series is a powerful range of SD/HD multi-channel video and audio I/O cards offering OEMs and developers the ability to create cost-efficient high performance audio/video products and applications. Redbridge cards are ideal for ingest/playout servers, graphics/CG servers, automation and master control systems, still-stores and clip-libraries. HD, SD, proxy and web formats are supported. Features include 64 Mbyte on-board memory, single-slot PCI-32/64, 33/66 MHz compliance, 3.3-volt signalling, an integral digital processor to transfer video and audio between on-board memory and computer host memory without CPU intervention, and two independent on board compositors for live three-layer 10-bit mixing of component video and graphics. The Redbridge series is fully compatible with Adobe Premiere Pro 2.0, Adobe After Effects 7.0.
"PC-based equipment has replaced standalone hardware in almost every area of broadcasting," comments Dayang International CEO Karlton Burn. "This new product family comprises no less than ten plug-in cards enabling programme originators, post-production houses, software designers and system integrators to derive the maximum operational benefit from Windows-based processing platforms. Dayang itself produces some of the most powerful PC-based equipment in the broadcast and post-production business so our design team has exactly the right mix of experience and expectation."
Redbridge 1101 is an entry-level card with 525/625-line composite and YC I/O plus stereo microphone and line inputs, stereo line output and headphone audio monitor output. The optional 1101A+ daughter card adds YPbPr component video outputs.
Redbridge 1101D and 1101DA enable a PC to accept and deliver 525/625 component and composite digital video as well as SDI, including direct and embedded audio.
Designed for HD applications, Redbridge HD1101D and HD1101A are 1080i/720p versions of the 1101D and 1101DA, supporting HD-SDI as well as direct digital video and audio I/O. Features include HD/SD SDI output with 16 embedded audio channels, an HD/SD SDI key or preview output, eight AES/EBU audio inputs, eight AES/EBU audio outputs and a genlock input (black-burst or tri-level sync).
Outstandingly versatile interfaces with one input channel and two output channels, Dayang's Redbridge 2100 (2101DA and 2110DA) includes video, CVBS, S-Video, component and SDI inputs and outputs, independent key or preview output, genlock input and loopthrough output, eight analog balanced audio inputs and outputs, eight AES/EBU audio and 16 SDI embedded audio input and outputs.
The Dayang Redbridge 4000 has four CVBS/SDI output channels, genlock, black-burst input and loopthrough output. Each channel is equipped with two AES/EBU audio outputs and two analog audio outputs.
Dayang's Red X interface card incorporates 20 SD-SDI inputs, each with four embedded audio channels.
RedStone is a dedicated card for transport stream capture, configured with four 270 megabit/s ASI inputs.
