The Integrated Graphics to Video Solution for Broadcast, Video and Film Production Professionals

NVIDIA Quadro FX 5800 SDI by PNY Technologies, is the ideal solution for digital broadcast professionals, who use various applications such as virtual-sets, sports, and weather news systems to composite live video footage onto virtual backgrounds and send the result to live video for TV broadcast. NVIDIA Quadro SDI solutions also allow film production, post-production, and finishing professionals to preview the results of 3D compositing, editing, and color grading in real time on high definition (HD) broadcast monitors. This graphics-to-video-out solution delivers uncompressed 8-, 10-, or 12-bit SDI from programmable graphics, enabling a direct connection to broadcast monitors, switchers, tape decks, or SDI projectors.

The Quadro SDI solutions provide two channels—fill or key—of 8-, 10-, or 12-bit uncompressed SDI in 2K, HD, or SD formats, and analog and digital house synchronization. It supports both Microsoft Windows and Linux, and works on top of existing applications, or can be easily integrated within a broadcast or video editing application through the NVIDIA API.

Uncompressed 8-, 10-, or 12-Bit SDI Output
Enables on-air broadcast, video production and post production professionals to composite and output live video and graphics to true, uncompressed 12-bit SDI in 2K, SD, or HD resolutions and allows direct connection to a broadcast monitor, switcher, tape deck, or SDI projector.

Ancillary Data Support
Support for ancillary data channel (for audio, time code, etc) through an NVIDIA API. Support for the introduction of ancillary data into the out going SDI video is provided through an NVIDIA API. This ancillary data can include up to 16 channels of embedded 24-bit digital audio as defined by SMPTE 272M and SMPTE 299M as well as timecode.

2D Video Pass Through Compositing
2D Video Compositing enables incoming video to be passed through and alpha composited, luma keyed, or chroma keyed with the Quadro rendered graphics image on the outgoing SDI video.

Genlock (House Synchronization)
One genlock (Standard BNC) connector (digital or analog) provides connectivity to a video sync source for SMPTE standard (digital, black burst, tri-level) synchronization. Expanded cross sync functionality permits an incoming house signal to synchronize a much larger number of video output signal formats.

Flicker Filter
The Quadro FX 5800 GPU includes a built-in flicker filter for the high quality rendering of computer graphics images in interlaced formats.

Rotated-Grid Full-Scene Antialiasing (RG FSAA)
The rotated grid FSAA sampling algorithm introduces far greater sophistication in the sampling pattern, significantly increasing color accuracy and visual quality for edges and lines, reducing “jaggies” while maintaining performance.

4GB GDDR3 GPU memory with ultra fast memory bandwidth
Industry's first 4GB frame buffer and massive memory bandwidth up to 102GB/sec delivers high throughput for interactive visualization of large models and high performance for real-time processing of large textures and frames and enables the highest quality and resolution full-scene antialiasing (FSAA).

NVIDIA CUDA parallel computing processor
A parallel computing processor architecture exposed through a C language environment and tool suite in combination with high performance visualization, CUDA unleashes new capabilities to solve highly complex challenges such as real-time ray tracing, video encoding, and interactive volume rendering.

Highest color fidelity
10-bit per component color fidelity enables billions rather than millions of color variations for rich, vivid image quality with the broadest dynamic range.

DisplayPort digital display connector
DisplayPort supports ultra high-resolution panels (up to 2560 x 1600) which results in amazing image quality and detailed photorealistic images.

Dual dual-link DVI-I display connectors
Two dual-link TDMS transmitters support ultra high-resolution panels (up to 2560 x 1600 at 60Hz on each panel) resulting in amazing image quality and detailed photorealistic images.

Quad buffered stereo
Offers enhanced visual experience for professional applications that demand stereo viewing capability.

NVIDIA SLI technology
A revolutionary platform innovation that enables professional users to dynamically scale graphics performance, enhances image quality, and expands display real estate.
