South Melbourne, Australia — Bluefish444, makers of uncompressed 4K/2K/HD/SD SDI video cards, is now offering Fluid Ingestore and Fluid DNxHD Ingestore for multi-channel HD/SD SDI ingest for use with Epoch and Create video cards running on Windows.
Fluid Ingestore for uncompressed workflows is available free from the Bluefish444 homepage(www.bluefish444.com). Fluid DNxHD Ingestore has a license value of $100 per channel and can be upgraded via Bluefish444 worldwide channel partners or via applying for a license at www.bluefish444.com. Both are available now.
Using only an SDI video cable Ingestore enables workstation computers to capture uncompressed and Avid compatible DNxHD media with minimum operator intervention. Using the embedded timecode data in SDI, Fluid Ingestore can automatically trigger the start and stop of captures at pre-defined segments, or by using auto-record mode generate new media files for each new take based on timecode interruptions.
Fluid Ingestore harnesses the power of all Bluefish444 video cards. Using the Bluefish’s Epoch | 4K Supernova and its 4 HD/SD SDI connections will enable Ingestore systems to simultaneously capture: Four channels of independent format and frequency HD/SD SDI video; Uncompressed 4:2:2 video formats; and Avid-compliant OP-ATOM DNxHD media files.
Fluid Ingestore users can capture multiple simultaneous streams of HD/SD SDI into uncompressed 4:2:2 8/10-bit files. Uncompressed QuickTime and AVI files can be used for archive, edit, encoding or analysis.
Key features include:
– Three recording modes: auto record, in/out point record, crash record.
– Intelligent clip generation on timecode breaks
– In/Out capture based on time code (no RS422 required)
– Simultaneous recording and NLE operation via Adobe Premiere and Avid Media Composer
– Independent video modes and frequencies per channel
– Uncompressed 4:2:2 8/10-bit QuickTime and AVI formats
– Realtime live desktop preview of all available inputs
– Metadata support
– Online/Offline clip bin
– Upgrade to Fluid DNxHD Ingestore anytime.
Fluid DNxHD Ingestore builds on the advanced features of Fluid Ingestore and enables users to capture Avid-compatible DNxHD files in addition to uncompressed video.
Users can capture multiple streams of HD/SD SDI into Avid-compliant OP-ATOM DNxHD media files as well as uncompressed 4:2:2 8/10 bit video files.
– Same as Fluid Ingestore
– Avid-compatible MXF Media:-
– DNxHD 1080i 145
– DNxHD 1080i 220
– DNxHD 1080p 120
– DNxHD 1080p 185
– DNxHD 720p 145

Fluid Ingestore and DNxHD Ingestore enable facilities to consolidate their SDI input requirements and effectively quarter the time necessary to ingest when using the simultaneous multiple SDI inputs of Bluefish444video cards.
Minimalist set up and operator input time allow vastly improved efficiency. Either uncompressed SDI or Avid compatible can be written in real time and made available to editors or encoders immediately.
