The EPIX PIXCI SV7 Dual Composite Video Bus Frame Grabber offers dual independent BNC inputs for the PCI Express bus. A low-profile bracket is sold separately if required.
The PIXCI SV7 digitizes analog video from one or two standard composite video cameras (NTSC, RS-170, PAL, or CCIR). The two inputs are independent, allowing capture of different resolutions, frame rates, and video formats. Digitized video is transferred to the PCI Express bus at video rate. As a PCIe bus master, the PIXCI SV7 board transfers image data without using the host computer's processor. Images may be transferred, at full or reduced frame rates, to a computer memory for processing and/or analysis by the host computer's processor(s), or to other targets on the PCI Express bus.
The PIXCI SV7 has two BNC jacks for composite video input. Live video from both cameras may be displayed on the computer's monitor at the same time. Programmable gain, hue, brightness, saturation, and contrast adjustments can condition the video signal. SMA connectors provide TTL Trigger In and Strobe Out. In one computer, up to four PIXCI SV7 boards can capture video at the same time from up to 8 video sources.
The XCAP-Lite imaging program, provided with the PIXCI SV7, provides independent capture and adjusts dialogs for each of the two inputs. If the two video sources (cameras) use the same format and if their video outputs are to be captured with the same settings, then one capture and adjust dialog provides common control. Choose the XCAP-Ltd program (sold separately) for extra display features, extended sequence capture up to 8GB of memory, and convenient saving of captured sequences to the hard drive. Choose the XCAP-Std (sold separately) program for maximum capture, display, and save capabilities (including direct video-to-disk capture) combined with extensive processing, measurement, and analysis features.
Programmer's libraries (XCLIB) and image processing subroutines (PXIPL) are sold separately for solving the most difficult particle tracking, machine vision measurement, inspection, image sequence analysis, and flow analysis tasks.
