d3 4x2pro



The d3 4×2 pro is our brand new reliable, robust 4U system ideal for concert tours, theatre productions and mid-sized projection events.

Industry Leading

The d3 4×2pro is a completely renewed version of our popular d3 4U v2.5. Featuring the same custom case, low-latency video capture, genlock and lockable connectors as the d3 4×4pro, the d3 4×2pro is the robust solution for concerts, theatres and mid-sized projection events.

Featuring four 2K outputs, the d3 4×2pro can Push Every Pixel®, playing up to 16 layers of HD video (DXV/HAP codecs) and up to four layers of uncompressed HD video.

Although the d3 4×2pro is a faster and more powerful system than the 4U v2.5, it is compatible with the existing version, as well as with its bigger brother, the d3 4×4pro.

Pro range: Professional

When we created our pro range, we were aiming for a robust, flexible solution that plays nicely together in any configuration.

The 4×4pro and 4×2 both feature a rugged aluminium chassis, minimal front-panel status LED panels, and professional-grade lockable rear panel connectors. Both pro machines have balanced XLR, lockable ethercon, BNC connectors for SDI capture and genlock and the display output formats you need, built right into the machine. And with the next-gen lockable Neutrik TrueOne power connector, we’ve made it easy to daisy-chain machines together to reduce rack complexity.

Pro range products are compatible with each other. Together, they can deliver any type of show from small to large.

Powerful

Push Every Pixel® is our benchmark for the playback power needed by video professionals everywhere.

Push Every Pixel® means that a machine should have enough power to fill every physical pixel of its outputs with two simultaneous layers of content. If you are running four outputs of 4K, you need to be able to play eight 4K content layers, or up to 32 HD layers to Push Every Pixel®. With four Dual-Link DVI outputs, you need to be able to play up to 16 HD layers, and so on.

With powerful Xeon processors, workstation-grade GPUs, terabytes of RAID-0 SSD storage, and lighting-fast 10Gbits/sec ethernet, the d3 pro range is designed from the ground up to meet this challenge.
