This free update to IngeSTore software adds important new functionality including additional CODEC upgrade options, “Edit-While-Record” functionality, and additional support for shared storage, including AVID shared strorage. Bluefish444 has partnered with Drastic Technologies to bring additional CODEC options to IngeSTore v1.1 including XDCAM, DNxHD, JPEG 2000, AVCi and more. Uncompressed, DV, DVCPro, and DVCPro HD CODECs will be made available free to Bluefish444 customers in this update to IngeSTore software.
The much anticipated “Edit-While-Record” functionality allows editors who use popular NLE’s to access captured files while they are still being recorded to disk. This feature is used heavily in live broadcast video workflows and in time critical environments when media needs to be accessed while live recordings continue uninterrupted. Popular content creation tools such as Avid Media Composer, Adobe Premiere Pro CC, and Assimilate SCRATCH can output SDI and HDMI with Bluefish444 video cards while IngeSTore is recording and the files are growing in size and length.
The collaboration between Bluefish444 and NewTek enables input and output of SDI video signals up to 4K 60p as part of an NDI-based IP workflow. This will allow Bluefish444 installations globally to implement interconnected, Ultra HD production workflows comprised of SDI and IP-based technologies. NewTek Connect Pro is a software application that runs on a standard Windows PC to serve video across a network, to and from hundreds of compatible systems and devices for switching, streaming, display, and distribution.
NewTek Connect Pro software, supporting 4K video resolutions, is available now. All Bluefish444 Epoch video cards are compatible with NewTek Connect Pro. The Epoch | 4K Neutron and Epoch | 4K Supernova S+ ranges of video cards are compatible with Connect Pro and support resolutions of up to 4K at 60fps.
