Quick Overview

The Most Comprehensive, Most Complete Signal Interface Available Today. STORM 3G Elite consists of a breakout box with a PCIe 4X I/F card for desktop connection (4X mode: up to 1080p50/60) as well as an Express 34 card (1X mode: up to 1080i) for laptop connection.

Description

Details

Manufacturer Part Number: 608700

NEW: The STORM 3G and STORM 3G Elite editing platforms are both supported via the EDIUS timeline with stereoscopic 3D I/O through a single 3G SDI source and/or dual 3G SDI signals.

STORM 3G Elite provides the most comprehensive, most complete signal interface available today. Video interfaces include dual 3G SDI, which can be used as either one 3G SDI signal or one pair of dual link 3G (1.5G x 2) SDI signals. Other interfaces include 1080p-capable HDMI I/O, composite (SD only), and component (up to 1080i) analog video I/O.

For audio, STORM 3G Elite has four pairs of AES/EBU interfaces (as eight BNC connectors, each accommodating eight audio I/Os up to 96 kHz, 24-bit). Another four pairs of XLR balanced audio are also available, with a stereo pair each of balanced AND unbalanced audio monitor out. A switchable line/mic (switchable phantom power) is also available for a dedicated voice-over input.

The uniqueness of STORM 3G Elite continues with control/sync. STORM 3G Elite has two RS-422 interfaces, one for controlling a VTR as master, another for control of a slave. Linear timecode I/O, reference in/through/out interfaces (which accept both bi-sync and tri-sync level), and a locking power connector round out the rest of the interfaces.
