The DTA-2174 features four independent transmit/receive channels, each consisting of a cable equalizer, ASI/SDI receiver, ASI/SDI transmitter, matrix logic, a high-performance DMA controller and a PCIe interface.
DekTec Matrix API® 2.0
The Matrix-API framework decodes incoming SDI data into pixels (in a programmable format), audio samples and ANC data structures. When a new frame has been received, the framework calls a user-supplied "frame-processor callback" for processing of the data. The user callback can create output video, audio and ANC data. which is encoded by the framework into SDI frames.
Synchronization of multiple input streams is straightforward: The video/audio/anc data of all SDI frames supplied to the callback function have the same arrival time by definition. Past frames can be accessed by an integer frame index. The framework ensures that if frames from different input ports have the same frame index, they have entered the system at the same time instance.
DekTec Matrix API® 2.0 supports the DTA-2174 and all products listed below. Applications designed for one of these cards will run virtually unaltered on any of the other cards.
DTA-2174B – Quad 3G-SDI/ASI ports (1x12G) for PCIe
The successor of the DTA-2174: smaller, 12G-SDI support, no fans, more robust and an attractive price.
DTA-2172 – Dual 3G-SDI/ASI ports for PCIe
Two-port variation of the DTA-2174.
DTA-2175 – HD-SDI/ASI in+out with relay for PCIe
Single HD-SDI/ASI input+output card with failover relay for creating redundant configurations.
DTA-2179 – Twelve 3G-SDI/ASI ports for PCIe
High-density variation of the DTA-2174, with 12 independent 3G-SDI/ASI ports
and a genlock input.
DTA-2195 – 12G-SDI input+output with HDMI 2.0 for PCIe
Uncompressed 4K I/O, like the DTA-2174, but with single-link 12G-SDI input and 12G-SDI + HDMI 2.0 output.
DTA-2174 Bird's Eye View
The DTA-2174 is available in a standard configuration with one cooling fan, and in a special OEM version without fan (DTA-2174-NF), which requires sufficient airflow in the PC.
