d3 is excited to announce that their latest 3G-SDI Video Format Conversion (VFC) cards are now available, completing the trio of cards offering DisplayPort, DVI and now 3G-SDI output options for the 4x4pro platform. d
3's VFC output cards are an industry first: no other media server on the market offers the ability to switch between output signal types, or to gracefully transition from HD to 4K.
Enabling users to drive up to 16x1080p outputs as DVI, 3G-SDI or 4?4K DP1.2 from a single d3 4?4pro system, d3's VFC cards allow you to deliver large multi-projector shows with fewer machines, no downstream splitters or converters, and practically no signal latency, whilst always being perfectly in sync.
Some recent shows that have benefited from the power of d3's VFC cards include:
Madison Square Garden by Worldstage
'The World's Most Famous Arena' is the world's first fixed installation using d3 VFC cards. The system synchronizes projection video, scoreboard video, and lighting and sound, turning MSG into a dynamic environment.
United Nation Global Goals by DWP
The most public face of the campaign was a 10-minute projection mapping on the iconic UN headquarters' buildings in New York City. Three 4x4pro's and 12 VFC cards, along with d3 Designer, supported the dramatic show.

d3 r12.1 is now available
r12.1 unlocks the full potential of d3's VFC cards, giving you the power you need to deliver your projects quicker, and with less equipment. Notable updates include:
•VFC configuration: R12.1's overhauled feed configuration UI now allows remote configuration of displays. Control EDID emulation, resolution, VFC output formats and more through a simple, streamlined interface.
•Extended blend modes: d3 now supports an extended set of compositing blend modes, bringing it into line with popular graphics packages such as Adobe Photoshop and Premiere. Burn, dodge, soft light - now you can achieve compositing in real time that used to have be rendered in content.
•Sockpuppet enhancements: d3's video module now adds extra controls allowing you to set internal loop points. During transitions, outgoing video clips now retain their playback and render properties, so you can get more done with less layers.
Current d3 customers have automatic and immediate access to the r12.1 upgrade.
d3 is the world's first fully integrated visual production system for video professionals, combining a real-time 3D stage visualizer, timeline, video playback engine and projection mapping tools into one product. d3's unique integrated workflow assists the designer at all stages of the project, from pitch through development to final delivery.
