Thinklogical Leads the Industry with New 4K Solutions

Fiber Optic Video Extension Products Supporting SMPTE 4K Digital Cinema Standards to be introduced at NAB Show 2013, Booth N2819

MILFORD, Conn. – Thinklogical LLC, a global manufacturer of secure fiber optic video and KVM routing and extension systems, today announced the introduction of two new Thinklogical SDIXtreme™ solutions to support the extension of SMPTE standard 4K signals.

 

The new Thinklogical solutions are able to extend 4K signals from four HD-SDI inputs or two 3G inputs over a single multi-mode or single mode fiber, with no compression, latency, artifacts or lost frames.  The new products are in addition to Thinklogical’s previously released 4K solutions for single or dual link DVI signals. 

 

The SMPTE 4K Digital Cinema standard references ultra-high definition (UHD) video delivered at a resolution of 4096 × 2160 pixels, twice the horizontal and vertical resolution of the 1080p HDTV format, with four times as many pixels overall.

 

“Thinklogical is proud to be first to market with these 4K SMPTE/Digital Cinema extension solutions,” said Larry Wachter, Vice President of Research and Development for Thinklogical. “Customers will now have the ability to extend and switch 4K signal streams, without sacrificing the higher resolution, frame rates and color depth provided by the SMPTE 4K standard.”

 

Christie Digital Systems (http://www.christiedigital.com), a global visual technologies company, is a Thinklogical business partner. “Thinklogical understands that the growth of the 4K format is dependent on having solutions that enable the extension of SMPTE standard 4K signals,” commented Jennifer Smith, vice president, Engineering, Christie Digital Systems. “With the introduction of their new SDIXtreme™ solutions, Thinklogical is well positioned to help drive greater market adoption of 4K-based image processing.”

Thinklogical will feature a demonstration of the company’s 4K solutions at NAB Show 2013 in booth number N2819. Contact Thinklogical at info@thinklogical.com or (203) 647-8700 for more information or to schedule an appointment at the show.
