The AJA Corvid 88 8-Channel 3G-SDI I/O Card with Cables (Tall Bracket, Fan) is an 8-lane PCIe 2.0 Card that features 8 simultaneous input and output streams on a single PCIe card, making it ideal for ingesting and playout servers as well as channel-in-a-box systems.
Corvid 88 Features:
High-Density Ingest and Output
Each BNC connection on Corvid 88 can be set programmatically as either an input or output and each can support a different video format, provided all formats use the same clock timing. Connections can also be linked together to support dual-link or 4K/UltraHD formats.
High Frame Rate Support
Corvid 88 supports 4K (4096 x 2160) and UltraHD (3840 x 2160) High Frame Rate (HFR) workflows. Working at frame rates of 48p, 50p and 60p ensures smooth motion for the most demanding 4K and UltraHD applications.
High frame rates are not limited to 4K and UltraHD with Corvid 88, multiple 720p and 1080p HD inputs and outputs are also supported at frame rates up to 50p and 60p, making Corvid 88 extremely flexible for your current and future needs.
LTC and Reference Input
Corvid 88 provides one external, switchable LTC/Reference input connection on the back of the card. A second LTC input is available on an internal header for providing additional reference to Corvid 88.
A built-in RS-422 connection is available either as an external connection on the full-sized Corvid 88 or as an internal connection on the low profile Corvid 88. RS-422 allows control of external devices for frame accurate ingest and layoffs.
