4x4pro

Drive large shows with fewer servers

The flagship of the pro range, it sets the industry benchmark for power, flexibility and convenience.

Designed for the largest video surfaces in the world, the 4x4pro is capable of driving up to 16 HD projectors or LED processors from a single server unit.

Fast media transfer

More content
More impact

The 4x4pro comes with more inputs and outputs and can play up 32 HD layers of content. Not only does it step up in terms of quality and quantity, but it can also process things faster. With twin 10Gbit/sec Ethernet connections, the 4x4pro can transfer huge files in a matter of minutes. An external PCIe slot also lets you install more storage, so you can do more.

Flexibility for the big occasions

The 4x4pro comes with four Video Format Conversion cards. An industry first, they let you drive up to 16HD outputs as DVI or SDI or 4x 4k from a single unit. So you can mix multiple signals on the same system and deliver large multi-projector shows with fewer machines.

Beauty in
the detail

Push Every Pixel™ is our benchmark for the playback power dreamt of by video professionals. It’s the power to fill every physical pixel with at least two simultaneous layers of content and it’s the standard the 4x4pro was designed to meet.

Play up to 32 HD layers of content

The d3 4×4pro can play up to 32 HD layers of DXV/HAP content, with canvas sizes up to 16K pixels across.

Real-time playback

The d3 4×4pro now supports the high-fidelity HAP-Q codec. Better still, it can play up to eight HD layers of lossless Quicktime Animation.

Multiple input options

The d3 4×4pro accepts four channels of HD-SDI (up to 1080p@30) or two channels of 3G-SDI (1080p@60), with just 50 msec latency.

Twin 10Gbit/sec ethernet connections

Twin 10Gbit/sec ethernet connections let you transfer huge media files quickly. If you have 150GB of content, it would take 1 hour 20 minutes to transfer it to four d3 v2.5s. With one d3 4×4pro, this can be achieved in one minute.
