While 4K video sources are well on their way to becoming commonplace in professional and consumer electronics, and 8K right is around the corner, there is still a fair amount of signal transport and display solutions utilizing Full-HD infrastructure. 3G-SDI is a proven, reliable transport medium and trusted by millions of users worldwide, and a staggering amount of displays and projectors are still being shipped with native Full-HD support. Meanwhile, 4K sources such as computers and media servers are readily available, and this often creates a case of wastage when the displays can't use the full pixel output of a source.
The Theatrixx XVVR-4DP2QSDI is a DisplayPort to Quad-SDI converter - the ideal bridge between your 4K sources and Full-HD displays. It has been designed with a single function in mind: take a 4K50/60, DisplayPort 1.2 input signal, and slice it into four 1080p60 quadrants on 3G-SDI connectors.
Featuring 4 processing channels in a compact 1U enclosure, the device is capable of taking 4x 4K60 DisplayPort inputs and delivering 16 Full-HD, 1080p60 outputs simultaneously with zero configuration. Latency is kept to a minimum thanks to a simplified yet robust processing architecture.
Each processing channel features a Gen-Lock input and loop thru for external synchronization, and the device is capable of generating a test pattern when no signal is applied to its input. The DisplayPort to Quad-SDI converter is future proof, enabling multiple channels to be synchronized together to handle combined resolutions of 8K, 16K, and more.
