Magewell 4K M.2 Capture Card
with Quad-Link Connectivity
M

agewell has released the sixth
model in its Eco Capture family
of ultra-compact, power-efficient,
M.2 video capture cards. Providing
input signal compatibility for older 4K
source equipment, the Eco Capture
QL-SDI 4K M.2 captures one channel
of video - with embedded audio - up to
4096x2160 at 60 frames per second
over quad-link, 3G-SDI connectivity.
Magewell's Eco Capture cards
offer systems integrators and OEM
developers high-performance video
capture with low power consumption
in a space-efficient form factor. The
cost-effective, low-latency devices
feature a high-speed PCIe 2.0 bus
interface with an M.2 connector and
measure only 22x80mm, making them
perfect for use in small or portable
systems where full-sized PCIe slots are
not available.
While recent 4K products often
support the transport of Ultra HD video
over a single, 12Gb/s SDI connection, a
lot of existing equipment still utilises

the earlier quad-link approach in which
four separate SDI cables combine to
carry one 4K signal. Owners of such
products wish to maximise the lifecycle
of those investments - which may be
just two or three years old - and for
some specialised solutions, equivalents
with single-link, 12G-SDI interfaces
may not yet be available. Now
shipping, the quad-link Eco Capture
QL-SDI 4K M.2 enables integrators and
OEM product designers to bring live,
4K content from these sources into
their software and systems.
"Customers who were on the cutting
edge of 4K adoption often have
significant investments in quad-link
equipment that they want to keep
using," said Amy Zhou, Sales Director
at Magewell. "Meanwhile, in critical
applications where new products
undergo lengthy certification periods,
we continue to see quad-link, 3G-SDI
even on current offerings. The Eco
Capture QL-SDI 4K M.2 complements
our popular single-link, 12G-SDI model

by seamlessly supporting quad-link 4K
sources."
The new quad-link model
joins five existing Eco
Capture M.2 models,
including two other
4K
configurations:
the Eco Capture
SDI 4K Plus
M.2, which
captures one
4K source at
60fps over singlelink, 12G-SDI, and the
Eco Capture HDMI 4K M.2, which
supports 4K video at 30fps via an
HDMI interface. The Eco Capture
family also includes dual-channel
models that capture HD and 2K video
over HDMI or SDI; and a quad-channel
HD/2K model with SDI inputs. All six
Eco Capture products also support up
to eight channels of embedded audio
per input.
Eco Capture cards are compatible
with Windows and Linux operating

Eco Capture
QL-SDI 4K M.2
video capture card

systems and support OS-native APIs
including
DirectShow,
DirectKS,
V4L2 and ALSA. Stream replication
enables each input channel to be used
by multiple software applications
simultaneously with identical capture
parameters, while FPGA-based video
processing provides high-quality up/
down/cross-scaling, picture controls,
and color space conversion without
tasking the host system CPU.
A comprehensive SDK is also
available for developers.

Studio Technologies Products Now Available
Through Markertek and TecNec
M

arkertek
Video
Supply
and
TecNec
Distributing,
subsidiaries of Tower Products
Incorporated, are premier, nationwide
suppliers of technical video production
gear for more than 30 years.
Requests from major TV broadcast
and sports video customers prompted
Markertek and TecNec to begin selling
products from Studio Technologies,
manufacturer of high-quality audio,
video, and fibre-optic solutions. The
companies have since developed a
growing partnership, bolstered by
strong interest from their customer
bases.
"Studio
Technologies
has
a
tremendous name in our industry for
quality products," said Greg DeCelle,
VP Marketing, Tower Products
Incorporated.
"Our
customers

are always pleased by the ease
of integration with their existing
workflows, and we have received
overwhelmingly positive feedback."
Developing a relationship with
Studio Technologies was an obvious
fit for Markertek and TecNec. Both
companies serve identical customer
bases, including audio and video
producers in broadcast television,
sports video, houses of worship,
schools and universities, corporate,
and more. Studio Technologies
products also fit with the specific
business model of TecNec Distributing,
which serves dealers, resellers, and
system integrators.
"We are always looking at ways to
improve our customers' experience,"
says Gordon Kapes, President of Studio
Technologies. "Expanding our reseller

network with the addition of Markertek
and TecNec is an exciting new initiative
for us and we look forward to working
together to further support new and
existing customers."
Markertek and TecNec primarily
offer intercom and IFB solutions
from Studio Technologies, including
the popular Model 45DC Intercom
Interface with two independent, partyline audio channels. DeCelle explained
that intercom is a particularly big
category. With a strong initial response
from customers, he added that he sees
significant growth potential from their
relationship with Studio Technologies.
"Studio Technologies is a great fit
for any of our live event customers,"
he says. "Now that we have a direct
relationship, we would like to expand
the selection of products we're able to

offer our customers.
Studio
Technologies
provides
tailored, high-performance video,
audio and fibre optic products for
the professional audio and broadcast
markets.
Founded in 1978, the company
is committed to designing and
manufacturing dependable, costeffective, and creative solutions
for broadcast studio, stadium and
corporate environments.
Known for "designing for the way
professionals work," the company
is recognised as an industry leader.
Product categories include fibre-optic
transport, intercom and IFB interfaces,
announcer consoles, and loudspeaker
monitor control systems.
A growing line of Dante-enabled
Audio-over-Ethernet
products
is
receiving wide recognition.
