Allows ATI FirePro 3D workstation graphics cards to be used in demanding applications that require synchronization to external sources (Genlock) or synchronization of 3D rendering of multiple GPUs in different systems (Framelock).
MacMall Part #: 7878612
Manufacturer Part #: 100-505590
The new ATI FirePro S400 synchronization module allows ATI FirePro 3D workstation graphics cards to be used in demanding applications that require synchronization to external sources (Genlock) or synchronization of 3D rendering of multiple GPUs in different systems (Framelock). The combination of these capabilities with ATI FirePro graphics accelerators means that an even wider set of applications can benefit from the award-winning ATI FirePro line.
Based on a full hardware, dedicated processor design, the ATI FirePro S400 helps ensure clock-accurate synchronization in virtually all scenarios. The dedicated processor allows up to four attached GPUs to work in the rendering needs of the user without compromising sync.
Features and Benefits:
Support for up to 4 GPUs per module Field upgradeable firmware Full hardware synchronization Support for connecting multiple computers and their GPUs together Sync to virtually any video source Serial ATA power connector
ATI FirePro S400 Framelock for simulation, visualization and power walls
The ATI FirePro S400 delivers Framelock by combining Output lock (synchronized display output) and 3D swap lock (simultaneous 3D buffer swapping), helping ensure that the GPUs in connected systems present their output in lock-step.
The two RJ-45 connectors on the module allow for connection of multiple daisy-chained systems (each with up to 4 ATI FirePro GPUs inside). The BNC connector on the module optionally allows systems to be synchronized (Genlocked) to an external signal, a capability essential for use in powerwalls used in live television broadcasts.
ATI FirePro S400 Genlock for broadcast, NLE and other video workflows
The ATI FirePro S400 permits Genlocking by delivering Output lock ((synchronized display output) that is driven by an external reference signal (typically 'house sync'). This allows the output of attached GPUs to be fed into video-centric devices (e.g. monitors used in broadcast applications, or Non-Linear Editing suites).
The BNC connector on the ATI FirePro S400 allows for receiving and synchronizing to virtually any video input source, including:
PAL & NTSC SD video blackburst HDTV tri-level sync TTL Sync signals on SDI
Innovation and Reliability from a Technology Leader
ATI FirePro accelerators, including the ATI FirePro S400, have been engineered to deliver innovation and reliability for a wide range of professional operating environments, including Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 71 and Linux. The unified driver, which supports all ATI FirePro workstation products, helps reduce the total cost of ownership by simplifying installation, deployment and maintenance.
