AMD FirePro™ S400 Synchronization Module


AMD FirePro™ S400

Description

The ATI FirePro S400 synchronization module allows AMD FirePro 3D workstation graphics cards to be used in demanding applications that require synchronization to external sources (genlock) or synchronization of 3D rendering of multiple GPUs in different systems (framelock). The combination of these capabilities with AMD FirePro graphics accelerators means that an even wider set of applications can benefit from the AMD FirePro line.Based on a dedicated processor design, the ATI FirePro S400 ensures frame-accurate synchronization for video walls, multiscreen presentations, 3D visual simulators, etc.

  • ATI FirePro™ S400 Framelock for simulation, visualization and power walls

    The ATI FirePro™ S400 delivers Framelock by combining Output lock (synchronized display output) and 3D swap lock (simultaneous 3D buffer swapping), helping ensure that the GPUs in connected systems present their output in lock-step.

    The two RJ-45 connectors on the module allow for connection of multiple daisy-chained systems (each with up to 4 ATI FirePro GPUs inside). The BNC connector on the module optionally allows systems to be synchronized (Genlocked) to an external signal, a capability essential for use in powerwalls used in live television broadcasts.

    ATI FirePro™ S400 Genlock for broadcast, NLE and other video workflows

    The ATI FirePro™ S400 permits Genlocking by delivering Output lock ((synchronized display output) that is driven by an external reference signal (typically ‘house sync’). This allows the output of attached GPUs to be fed into video-centric devices (e.g. monitors used in broadcast applications, or Non-Linear Editing suites).

    The BNC connector on the ATI FirePro S400 allows for receiving and synchronizing to virtually any video input source, including:


  • PAL & NTSC SD video blackburst
  • HDTV tri-level sync
  • TTL
  • Sync signals on SDI
  • Innovation and Reliability from a Technology Leader

    ATI FirePro™ accelerators, including the ATI FirePro S400, have been engineered to deliver innovation and reliability for a wide range of professional operating environments, including Windows® XP, Windows Vista®, Windows7® and Linux®. The unified driver, which supports all ATI FirePro workstation products, helps reduce the total cost of ownership by simplifying installation, deployment and maintenance.
