Top 5 Reasons the dPict Nexeon HDI Interface Board is worth it’s weight in gold

When you are setting up a camera for high detail work especially things involving microscopy, robotics, automation inspection, military, and aviation or medical procedures/applications then you will need one of the best frame grabbers in the camera industry. The dPict Nexeon HDI Interface Board is the one board that can cover all the bases even if you are using it for something that doesn’t need as much precision and detail like security or surveillance this can be both a time saver and improvement of your overall setup, here are the just 5 of the many reasons why you need this in your camera control setup.


1. DVI and HDMI input support for your security systems

When it comes to connections it helps to make things easy when you have all the hookups you need to implement the system you want and in today’s day and age that makes HDMI a must but its also very adaptable with DVI or Digital Visual Interface hookups for a direct connection to computer or server or controller.

2. PCI Express 2.0 4x Interface Connection for quick video transfer

The high speed connection only helps speed things up when you need it and time is important as it allows you to connect and transfer data at some of the highest speeds possible going as high as 1GB/sec. on data transfers.

3. Simultaneous real-time transfer of video to system memory

Being able to transfer video or image data is the core reason to get a frame grabber and being able to do it simultaneously and in real time is another level of game changer that makes this one of the best options on the market.

4. Real-time image processing

While we are on the topic of image and video processing and transfer capabilities, I would be remiss not to mention that the dPict Nexeon HDI Interface Board is also a pro at image processing and hardware codecs that enable the recording or clipping and processing of an image in real time as the video is being captured. That way you can process it in the moment rather than potentially forgetting later.

5. Supports multiple compression standards

Whether it’s H.264, MPEG4 or MJPEG they are enabled for playback with a real-time hardware CODEC to transfer either compressed or uncompressed video or image data to memory simultaneously while recording or playing back video.

Whatever your reason for needing a frame grabber if you are someone who has an attention for the smallest details or its required in your application then the dPict Nexeon HDI Framegrabber is the perfect fit for your business or needs. We also have other frame grabbers if you prefer another brand or need another type for a different application on our frame grabbers page.

Enjoy working under the bright lights? You and the Tru-Vu SRMH-13.3U monitors are a picture perfect match.

When you work in the wide range of industrial or manufacturing jobs there are a lot of instances where you are going to be working in high ambiance or even altogether outdoor locations, you may even have the smaller problem of wanting to let light in the office but having it interrupt that daily meeting due to not being able to view the monitor properly due to light pollution, there is a solution to this wide ranging problem though.

When you have a monitor like the Tru-Vu SRMH-13.3U you can dare to leave those blinds open and let the sunshine in because it’s designed to display bright high definition colors while also retaining view-ability through its state of the art LED backlights that produce over 1,500 nits of brightness (vs. your standard 200 to 300 nits for standard monitors) so that even in the face of the sun itself it still beams diamond sharp images. With a resolution of 1920×1080 it brings full 1080P HD and an 800:1 contrast ratio it tops all monitors in the same size range.

Since they envisioned most people using it for outdoor purposes they encased it with a powder-coated steel enclosure and gave it the added flexibility of a battery-powered operation for mobile/portable applications and still had it come in under 5 lbs. in weight to make it not only bright but lightweight, durable and functional in even some of the roughest environments. Here is a full list of notable features.

Get hyper detail oriented with the 4K Ultra HD IMHD4K-55 display

Detail oriented people are into the little things, they scrutinize small details and what seems ordinary to others but they know the power of putting together a lot of little things to make the whole much stronger. I can’t remember who it was by but I read a quote once that when you want to build a brick wall it can be overwhelming but if you focus on laying each brick perfectly then the little will eventually become the whole and the wall will be perfectly built. This applies to learning a new skill as well, you must learn the little things before you can make an attempt at much harder techniques.

Much like my rambling, it’s easy to get lost in the big picture when you aren’t looking for details and the little things is what the InVid IMHD4K series does best. It focuses on the crisp clear picture even in the smallest of details to give you the most information possible so you miss nothing when looking at the whole picture.

Starting with the amazing 4K (3840 x 2160 pixels) resolution with super fast 60 Hz refresh rate and Bright illumination panel with an 89° viewing angle. Not only is the IMHD4K-55 a big monitor but it’s also built for security/surveillance being able to combine Ultra HD resolution and other technology features that make it perfect for these applications.

One of those technologies allows you to monitor multiple cameras at once with Picture by Picture (PBP) and Picture in Picture technology so you will always be ready to react when something pops up that demands attention even the small things that would go unnoticed on a smaller or less resolute screen. Listed below are some of the most exciting features for the powerhouse monitor.

Capturing the Ultimate 4K Experience with a little Blackmagic

Magic is a strange thing it can make us believe in things beyond our control and in some cases that a person has mythical powers, its all just a trick though unless we get into things unproven or unbelievable at the end of the day it is just another temporary fantastical escape for your mind much like any source of joy or entertainment. We use it to explain things we have no words or explanation for in the absence of scientific proof of concept. The best magicians attempt to work within reality while still pulling off amazing feats of spectacle and I think the best video cameras also give you that sense of reality bending fun while also staying in the moment and capturing the two worlds blending and colliding together in HD 4K Realism.

They really are magicians and can capture stunning things in reality that are right before your eyes all the time but never had the clarity or attention to detail to see, but the Blackmagic Design URSA Broadcast can make your film dreams a reality being switchable to either an incredible field camera for programming work or a professional studio camera for the field of news gathering work that can’t be matched by simple DSLR’s.


The versatility of this camera also extends into working with any existing HD or Ultra HD lenses you have so you can shoot on the go and always have what you need to get the perfect shot, with the B4 lens mount that works with your existing lenses or can be swapped for optional EF, F and PL lens mounts for standard photographic lenses. As well you can also save space and work faster with the ability to use standard media cards and file formats that are compatible on virtually all formats and editing software. The media storage options for the camera are a 2 x CFast for 4K RAW and ProRes recording. 2 x SD UHS-II card slots for HD and Ultra HD recording.


While we are talking about recording did we mention the incredible 4K Ultra HD picture you get out of this camera? To start off we have an amazing shooting resolution of 3840 x 3160 and up to 60 fps (frames per second) frame rates and high quality neutral density (ND) filters that let you quickly reduce the amount of light entering the camera with 1/4, 1/16th and 1/64th stop filters giving you the perfect amount of light to get the clearest picture possible even in the worst rainy, muggy conditions. Some of the other too many to list features listed below.



  • 2/3 inch sensor size when using 4K B4 mount (Actual sensor size 13.056mm x 7.344mm)
  • Dynamic Range – 12 Stops+
  • 4 inch LCD capacitive touchscreen
  • Electronic control via 12-pin broadcast connector. Control also possible via EF mount pins when using optional URSA Mini Pro EF Mount
  • Built in Four position ND filter wheel with clear, 2-stop, 4-stop and 6-stop ND filters
  • Focus button turns on peaking, auto focus available using compatible lenses
  • Highly accurate time code clock. Less than 1 frame drift every 8 hours






Overall this is a very modular grab and go camera but for people who want professional quality filming that can adapt to any situation or environment to be able to get in and out in hurry without sacrificing quality or a grainy hard to follow or see image. It can adapt to any lens, storage device, remote control, microphone, light source or magic potion you want to throw at it and make you understand how seeing is believing, in magic and in broadcasting.
