HOW TO: Setup the M|family for UHD Quad link (M|1600, M|80, M|80X, M|62, M|44)

How many UHD channels?

With the M|Family models that use Deltacast cards, you can also set them up to capture Quad link UHD. 

  • The M|1600 can record up to 4 x UHD30p
  • The M|80 can record up to 2 x UHD30p
  • The M|80X can record up to 2 x UHD60p
  • The M|62 and M|44 can record 1 x UHD30p

Note that

  • lower frame rates are of course possible, we just mention the "up to" value
  • you can combine UHD and HD so for example the M|62 can do 1 UHD + 2 HD.
  • other M|Family models do not support UHD quad link


How to set it up?

Here is how you should set it up for the first UHD channel:

  • Enable the first Source.
  • Disable Sources 2, 3 & 4, it should look something like this:


  • Then open the source 1 settings popover and disable the "Automatically detect input format", and manually set the appropriate UHD format:


And you will be able to do the same thing for the other sources (for example source 5, disable sources 6, 7 & 8).
