Quadro SDI Output

NVIDIA® 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.

The Quadro SDI Output card is the ideal solution for digital broadcast professionals, who use various applications such as virtual-sets, sports, and weather news systems to composite live video footage onto virtual backgrounds and send the result to live video for TV broadcast. Quadro SDI Output card also allow film production, post-production, and finishing professionals to preview the results of 3D compositing, editing, and color grading in real time on high definition (HD) broadcast monitors.

This graphics-to-video-out solution delivers uncompressed 8-, 10-, or 12-bit SDI from programmable graphics, enabling a direct connection to broadcast monitors, switchers, tape decks, or SDI projectors.

We are no longer accepting applications for the NVIDIA Quadro SDI SDK since the same low latency video I/O can be achieved across a wide range of GPUDirect for Video enabled 3rd party I/O boards. Contact the I/O board vendors for access to their SDK and follow the included GPUDirect for Video examples.

If you have any questions about legacy support for the NVIDIA Quadro SDI SDK, contact us at DVP-support@nvidia.com.

¹ The Quadro Kepler family boards require a Kepler specific version of the SDI board. When ordering make sure to specify the GPU the SDI board will be connecting to.
