Multi-channel 4K/UHD output from Adobe Creative Cloud applications with Bluefish KRONOS K8
North Melbourne, Australia, 17 September 2020 – Bluefish444, manufacturer of the professional video industry’s highest-quality uncompressed 4K SDI, ASI, Video Over IP & HDMI I/O cards and mini converters, announces support for its KRONOS K8 multi-channel 4K/UHD SDI card with Adobe® Creative Cloud® applications via the latest Bluefish Windows 2020.14.1 installer package.
Bluefish’s K8 video I/O card and the Epoch range are now fully supported within the latest versions of Adobe Premiere® Pro, After Effects®, Adobe Audition®, Character Animator and Prelude® – all part of Adobe Creative Cloud – giving production and post-production professionals access to the highest quality SDI capture and playback support.
With K8, editors using Premiere Pro are able to playback multiple channels of 4K/UHD SDI from their timeline using Bluefish’s proprietary 12-bit processing engine for maximum quality. The 2020.14.1 update also expands support for Epoch cards to the latest versions of Adobe Creative Cloud applications. Both K8 and Epoch cards have full support for High Frame Rate and HDR workflows, and SDI capture from Premiere Pro.
Bluefish brings unique workflow opportunities to Adobe apps with the highest quality video interface to allow capture and playout of professional video and audio signals. Bluefish provides record workflows with bundled IngeSTore software. When using both IngeSTore and Premiere Pro together, recording can be carried out in the background while Premiere Pro edits the Growing Files in an Edit-While-Record workflow.
“Bluefish has supported Adobe software for many years now and it is our great pleasure to bring this latest update,” said Tom Lithgow, Product Manager at Bluefish. “The combination of Adobe content creation and editing tools, Bluefish hardware and IngeSTore software offerings makes for a compelling, cost-effective and unique production suite.”
“Editors, artists, and content creators who use Adobe applications like Premiere Pro and After Effects need seamless workflows,” said Sue Skidmore, head of partner relations for Adobe video. “Bluefish444 gives production and post-production professionals access to high-quality SDI capture and playback support – making the entire process easier, so they can focus on their creative output.”
