The Pro Range Evolution
The 2×4pro, the newest server, is the natural evolution of the Pro Range of servers. With the same DNA
as its bigger brother, the 4×4pro, the 2×4pro hits the technical requirements for the everyday show or project. The 2×4pro enables customers to join the d3 community or extend their d3 server portfolio, with a Pro product scalable up to 8 outputs.
2x Video Format Conversion Cards
The new server, like the flagship 4×4pro, supports d3’s industry first, replaceable Video Format Conversion (VFC) cards. d3’s VFC cards enable users to drive up to 8 outputs as DVI or 3G-SDI or two DPI.2 from a single d3 2×4pro, which future proof the system as the industry continues to evolve.
The VFC cards gives customers the flexibility to use mixed signal types and mixed resolutions from the same hardware while experiencing low latency when compared to other market solutions for splitting 4k. As new signal standards gain popularity, we’ll release new output cards to handle them.
The d3 2×4pro ships with 2x DPI.2 output cards and can be upgraded to DVI or 3G-SDI.
The 2×4pro features a refined chassis with the same rugged connectors to be expected from d3s pro range servers. The system has decoupled sensitive components with a floating internal chassis and a new ruggedized VFC
backplane offers increased stiffness and reliability.
Push Every Pixel™
Push Every Pixel™ is our benchmark for the playback power needed by video professionals everywhere. Push Every Pixel™ means that a machine has enough power to fill every physical pixel of its outputs with at least two simultaneous layers of content.
With d3 2x4 pro you can...
drive two 4K outputs, or 8 HD outputs
Play 4 4K content layers (DXV/ HAP)
Play 4 HD lossless content layers (QT Anim)
Codecs: DXV, HAP, HAP-Q, PJPEG, QT Anim
Up to 16K pixels content canvas size
Quad HD-SDI capture, 50 msec latency
Dual 10Gbits/sec ethernet (20 times faster content transfer)
Replaceable video output cards
Decoupled internals / Floating internals
