Bluefish444, manufacturer of the professional video industry’s highest-quality uncompressed 4K SDI, ASI, Video Over IP & HDMI I/O cards and mini converters, has announced SDI I/O support for real time 3D graphics and virtual studio software from Aximmetry for the KRONOS K8 and Epoch range of video cards. All Bluefish Epoch and KRONOS video cards feature bi-directional SDI I/O and are widely integrated by 3rd-party developers and OEMs via the cross-platform Windows, Linux and macOS SDK.
Aximmetry provides end-to-end, real-time 3D graphics and virtual studio solutions for the broadcast and entertainment industries and now offers the choice of two real-time rendering engines (its own engine and Unreal Engine integration), giving users the flexibility to choose.
“Bluefish welcomes Aximmetry as a real-time 3D graphics partner for the broadcast and entertainment industries,” said Craige Mott, Managing Director at Bluefish444. “Our next generation Windows driver adopted by Aximmetry gives a significant boost to SDI I/O performance and ensures the lowest latency for Aximmetry-generated 3D graphics.”
Aximmetry also has its own advanced keying technology which is included in all licences. The company’s solutions cover all aspects of advanced broadcast presentation: tracked virtual sets, Augmented Reality (AR), interactive touch-screen displays, data-driven graphics, virtual product placement, and audience interaction via second-screen devices. Content created in Aximmetry can be live-streamed directly to YouTube or Facebook.

The integration between Bluefish and Aximmetry will provide the highest quality SDI I/O to Aximmetry 3D graphics for broadcast, live streaming, live event, and projector/LED wall workflows.
