Decklink 8k Pro- 4 Independent 12G?

PostThu Nov 16, 2017 5:50 am

Hopefully someone from BM can answer this directly as I doubt anyone has this in had yet. Can you use this card to ingest (4) 12G signals that are not a Quad 8k signal? I know there are very few machines that can handle this at the moment, but I'm working on a machine that will need a 4in 1out 12G solution...

Tech specs page says 4 bi-directional connections, same language they use for the Duo/Quad cards.

You would still need 2 cards as Decklink 8k Pro has 4 SDIs (+ref). In theory should work, but even if other card model has 2 inputs BM said (if I'm correct) you can't use them independently.

Yeah with the 4in/1Out solution it would be an 8k card for inputs and a 4K card for the output.
