- About NVIDIA
The NVIDIA® Quadro® Digital Video Pipeline is the industry's only GPU-accelerated solution for real-time acquisition, processing, and delivery of high-resolution video across standard and now 3D video broadcast environments.
Designed as an ultra-flexible platform, the Quadro Digital Video Pipeline leads the way for 3D video production and delivery. Developed for single or multi-camera environments, and with full support for stereoscopic 3D production workflows, the Quadro Digital Video Pipeline provides a direct feed of up to four HD SDI video streams directly into the GPU. As a tightly integrated solution, the Digital Video Pipeline is powered by a single workstation, enabling cost effective implementation of multi-camera 3D systems.
> Composite virtual 3D effects and video processing directly on the GPU
> Broadcast the final result from the GPU directly to live TV or streamed over the internet
> Composite virtual effects or video processing using the NVIDIA® CUDA™ parallel computing architecture
> Broadcast the final result directly to live TV
> Capture of source content from camera, film scanners, digital data recorders (DDRs), and video tape
> Accurate real-time preview on SDI monitors or projectors
> Ultra-fast, real-time GPU-based encoding for internet video streaming
Quadro SDI Capture card enables multi-stream, uncompressed video to be streamed directly to Quadro SDI-enabled GPU memory> Capture up to 4 HD-SDI Single link sources simultaneously
> Supports all SMPTE standard formats (3G, 2K, HD and SD) through 75 Ohm
> Indicator LEDs on the bracket provide easy error detection
> Monitor out can be used as a sync source for the optional SDI Output card
Quadro SDI Output card provides an integrated graphics-to-video solution enabling 2D and 3D effects to be composited in real-time with 2K, HD, and SD video (3G not currently supported)> Enables genlock to external house sync or sync to Quadro SDI Capture card
> Supports 2K, HD and SD video formats uncompressed 8-bit, 10-bit or 12-bit SDI
> Combines with SDI-enabled Quadro graphics board
Quadro SDI-enabled professional graphics solutions for ultimate performance and features> CUDA GPU architecture for compatibility with all CUDA-based applications
> Up to 6 GB of graphics memory
> Dual and single slot solutions

1 CUDA Parallel Processing Cores cannot be compared between GPU generations due to several important architectural differences that exist between streaming multiprocessor designs.
2 NVIDIA SDI Capture and Output Boards are not supported on Windows 8. SDI I/O support for Windows 8 is available through our GPUDirect™ for Video board partners.
The NVIDIA Quadro SDI SDK provides ease of programmability and control of the entire Quadro Digital Video pipeline – acquisition, processing and delivery. Be a registered developer and gain access to the SDK by completing this form.
Building on the technology developed for the NVIDIA Digital Video Pipeline solution, NVIDIA has recently developed a new process that enables fast-throughput technology for third-party SDI input and output cards as well. This new capability will be enabled through software, and made available to video I/O card manufacturers through an SDK. The technology, called GPUDirect for Video, will join other solutions in the GPUDirect lineup to enable fast access to Quadro professional graphics cards in a range of video applications. If you are a 3rd party I/O card manufacturer and would like to add NVIDIA's GPUDirect for Video technology, become a registered developer and gain access to the SDK by completing this form.
