Bluefish444 supports SMPTE 2022 standards with IngeSTore software

“Bluefish444 announce integration of IPConnect into IngeSTore, enabling capture of Video Over IP to file”

Bluefish444 announces capture support for SMPTE 2022 Video Over IP standards with IngeSTore software.


IngeSTore is Bluefish444’s free multi-channel capture software compatible with all Bluefish444 Epoch and KRONOS video cards. It captures multiple simultaneous channels of 3G/HD/SD-SDI, and now SMPTE 2022 Video Over IP, to popular media file formats for archive, edit, encoding or analysis. IngeSTore drives efficiency in the digitisation workflow by enabling multiple simultaneous recordings from VTR’s, cameras and any other SDI source.


The addition of SMPTE 2022 Video Over IP capture is enabled within IngeSTore software through the recently announced Bluefish444 “IPConnect” API, and allows the capture of Video Over IP standards through standard off-the-shelf 10Gb Network Interfaces (NIC).


“Bluefish444 are pleased to announce integration of IPConnect into IngeSTore, enabling capture of Video Over IP to file,” says Tom Lithgow, Product Manager at Bluefish444. “The ability to access Video Over IP sources from standard 10Gb Network Interfaces gives Bluefish444 customers unrivaled flexibility in both IngeSTore and 3rd party software via the new IPConnect API.”


The latest updates to IngeSTore software add new functionality including additional codec upgrade options, “Edit-While-Record” functionality, and additional support for shared storage, including Avid shared storage. 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 are available free to Bluefish444 customers in the current version of IngeSTore software.


“Edit-While-Record” functionality

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.

To see a demonstration of IngeSTore capturing from SMPTE 2022 Video Over IP sources, users can visit Bluefish444 on stand 7.J07 at IBC Show 2017.
