Custom hardware configuration

QTAKE runs on macOS using the latest software and hardware technology available from Apple, Inc. QTAKE also supports a multitude of video cards from AJA, BMD, and Deltacast to capture video, audio, and timecode information. Each clip is recorded to high-speed media storage and can be retrieved instantly for playback, editing, or compositing. With the power of modern GPU architecture, QTAKE can perform intensive image processing in real-time, such as real-time chroma keying or CGI rendering.

Basic configuration

The basic configuration of a working QTAKE system consists of an Apple Mac computer and a supported video card for input (and optionally output). Performance varies greatly depending on the selected video codecs and image processing requirements. Generally, we recommend getting the top-of-the-line Mac models to allow enough headroom for complex projects.

The ultimate QTAKE Output Device.

QOD+ provides superior hardware solution for GPU driven video output. It converts DisplayPort output to four SDI outputs supporting all standard frame-rates, up to 60fps.

QOD+ is controlled directly by QTAKE software to provide smooth, jitter-free video output with embedded audio and timecode.

This unique custom-made device is compatible with every version of QTAKE, from HDx1 up to HDx4 or with two QOD+ devices up to HDx8/4Kx2.

Wireless camera metadata solved.

All on-set video professionals know that wireless transmitters strip out metadata from the camera output.

Digital cinema cameras use ancillary space of the SDI signal to output timecode, record flag, filename and other valuable information. Unfortunately, wireless devices will not transport this part of the SDI signal.

MetaCoder solves this problem by processing metadata in a way that preserves it regardless of the wireless sender. Just place the MetaCoder in the chain between the camera and the transmitter and you’re done. QTAKE will now be able to read the metadata, just like if it was connected to the camera using the SDI cable.

Turn your iPad into
professional monitor & recorder

iOS devices feature amazing displays that often exceed the quality of dedicated portable and on-board SDI monitors. In addition to color accuracy, wide gamut, and slim form factor, they offer responsive touchscreen interface and incredible computing power. But they lack video input.

ScreenPort SDI+ adds video input to iPad, iPhone or Mac and turns it into professional 3G-SDI monitor capable of capturing up to 1080p60 video feed with your personal portable device. ScreenPort app provides video controls, analysis and recording tools unmatched by most professional monitors.
