Quick Overview

Add 6 full-length, full-height PCI Express slots to your current broadcast production set Mac Pro or PC workstation instead of replacing it! NOW WITH PCIe GEN3!



Manufacturer Part Number: XPRMG3-514U

Xpander Elite is a 4U, 19' rackmount PCIe slot expansion solution designed for broadcasters and digital cinema production sets which require plenty of additional power and PCIe slots, while maintaining a small physical footprint and whisper-quiet operations. Using only one PCIe x16 slot in a host PC or Mac Pro, Xpander Elite provides you with six additional full-length, full-height PCIe slots for multiple NVIDIA graphics cards, SDI capture cards from Blackmagic Design, Aja, NVIDIA, and others. Add multiple RED Rocket cards, high-performance NVIDIA Quadro Series graphics by PNY by PLUS fiber optic HBAs, RAID controllers, PCIe-based SSDs - all of the above using only 1 slot in the host workstation or server!

Cubix bases Xpander Elite on its popular GPU-Xpander product line, but adds integrated remote management, front panel LCD system status read-out and control interface, 1500W power supply, and four variable speed, temperature-controlled exhaust fans for cooling even the most demanding PCIe devices. This means one Xpander Elite can process up to 12 HD-SDI data streams simultaneously (depending upon application and capture devices used) while operating in near silence within mobile production rack cabinets with its host workstation and 3rd party storage systems.

Applications for Xpander Elite include:

  • Production broadcasting or cinema applications requiring high-performance GPUs, SDI or HD-SDI audio/video capture cards from Blackmagic Designs, AJA, and NVIDIA DaVinci Resolve color correction
  • Assimilate Scratch
