2x4pro

The 2x4pro is the newest addition to the pro range, meeting the technical requirements for your everyday shows and projects.

2x4pro

The power of entertainment

Built with the same DNA as its big brother, the 2x4pro packs a mighty punch. Scale up to two 4k outputs, or 8 HD outputs, the 2×4pro hits the technical requirements for the everyday show or project.

The power to be flexible

The 2x4pro supports our industry first, replaceable Video Format Conversion (VFC) cards. Output DVI, SDI, or DisplayPort without changing the system. Mix signal formats and resolution types in the same project, with guaranteed frame synchronisation and near-zero latency.

Flexible output formats

Tough on the outside

With fewer outputs, the 2x4pro is compact and more affordable. It comes in a rugged 4U chassis built of aluminium and steel. Sturdy and tough, the server is designed for a life on the road.

Detail in the design

The 2x4pro reaches our Push Every Pixel™ standard and more. Supporting the power to fill every pixel with at least two layers of content, the 2x4pro doesn’t hold back. Designed to push those impactful designs, it pushes colour and clarity to the limit.

2x Video Format Conversion Cards

d3’s VFC cards enable users to drive up to 8 outputs as DVI or 3G-SDI or two DPI.2 from a single d3 2×4pro, which future proof the system as the industry continues to evolve. The VFC cards gives customers the flexibility to use mixed signal types and mixed resolutions from the same hardware while experiencing low latency when compared to other market solutions for splitting 4k. The d3 2×4 pro ships with 2x DPI.2 output cards and can be upgraded to DVI or 3G-SDI.

Refined chassis

The 2×4 pro features a refined chassis with the same rugged connectors to be expected from d3’s pro range servers. The system is the first in the Pro Range to have redesigned, decoupled sensitive components with a floating internal chassis and a new ruggedised VFC backplane offering increased stiffness and reliability.

Push Every Pixel™

Push Every Pixel™ is our benchmark for the playback power needed by video professionals everywhere. Push Every Pixel™ means that a machine has enough power to fill every physical pixel of its outputs with at least two simultaneous layers of content. The recently released 2x4 pro excels even that, offering 3 pixels per physical output.

Availability

The d3 2×4 pro is shipping now, with 2x DP1.2 output cards as standard configuration, and can be upgraded to DVI or 3G-SDI at time of purchase, or as your needs grow.
