What's in the Box

  • 1x Magewell 11550 Eco Capture Card
  • 4x MMCX to SDI Breakout Cable

The Magewell 11550 Eco Capture SDI 4K Plus M.2 captures one channel of 4K video up to 4096x2160 at full 60 frames per second over quad-link, 3G-SDI connectivity. While recent 4K products often support the transport of Ultra HD video over a single, 12Gb/s SDI connection, a lot of existing equipment still utilizes the earlier quad-link approach in which four separate SDI cables combine to carry one 4K signal. The quad-link Eco Capture QL-SDI 4K M.2 enables integrators and OEM product designers to bring live, 4K content from these sources into their software and systems using the new super fast M.2 connector.
