  • VS4 Quad HD Capture Card for Select Software (vs4Recorder, vMix)

    The Matrox VS4 Quad HD Capture Card for is a PCIe x8 card that allows you to simultaneously stream and capture from up to four independent SDI video sources using optional vMix, Wirecast, or the full version of VS4 Recorder Pro software applications. The VS4 card includes a trial version of the VS4 Recorder Pro software. The optional VS4Recorder is a versatile application ideal for multi-camera productions that provides HD recording of up to four inputs while simultaneously offering a complete multi-viewer experience, and it provides two recording modes: independent and multi-cam. The optional vMix software is a complete live video production software solution that provides live mixing, switching and streaming.

    The capture card also works with select Wirecast software, not included, which allows you to switch between input feeds and add effects to produce a live streaming program. The inputs support PAL, NTSC and various flavors of HD video. Each input works independently, and features auto format detection that allows the card to set the correct input format. This means that the card can accept, stream and encode for capture video from four different inputs with four different formats, even mixing SD and HD, at the same time.

    The VS4 features ISO recording, which means that while streaming the program live the VS4 can also encode video from each input at up to 300 Mb/s, to available video storage. The VS4 features codecs compatible with editing solutions from Adobe, Avid and Apple, this allows you to go back and re-edit your show after it has already streamed live. Supporting 8 channels of embedded audio per input, the card encodes audio at 24-bit resolution at 48 kHz for clean clear sound. The VS4 is PC compatible, running on the Windows 7 OS.

    Inputs
    Four SD/HD-SDI inputs are active at all times. The VS4 auto senses the video signal and automatically sets each input up for the correct format. Each input is independent of the others, so you can feed a different format to each input with any issues.
    Formats and Codecs
    You can mix and match video formats, stream and capture (to available storage systems) using the VS4 with the Telestream software. The VS4 Matrox supports encoding at up to 300 Mb/s from each input and supports the Matrox MPEG 2 I-Frame codec, DV, DVCPRO, DVCPRO50, and DVCPROHD codecs.

With the VS4Recorder Pro Software you can frame accurately record up to four live audio/video feeds using the VS4, either as multi-cam or treated as unrelated streams. It is ideal for recording live multi-camera productions like concerts and sporting events to create video assets that can be easily repurposed and archived with timecode synced ahead of time. In addition, VS4Recorder Pro provides a multi-viewer function allowing you to view all four inputs on a single computer monitor.

Global audio settings include audio codecs for .wav and .aac files with bit rate, bit depth and stereo/mono options
    Automatic Input Detection
    Connect your video sources, start VS4Recorder Pro and begin recording - the software will automatically detect your video format. Each input is independent so you can capture HD and SD in the same recording session
    Frame Accurate Recording
    Record multiple angles of a single event with VS4Recorder Pro's multi-cam mode - pressing a single button causes all inputs to begin recording in sync. Once a session is underway, you can stop any input without interrupting the other inputs. When finished, import the files into an NLE - all files will be perfectly in sync on the timeline
    Independent Recording
    Capture real-time content for archiving or repurposing by recording any input independently. Monitor multiple video signals to acquire a video asset at the push of a button
    Hi-Resolution Multi-Viewer
    VS4Recorder Pro offers video monitoring of all inputs, with a special filter applied for maximum quality when viewing interlaced sources on progressive computer monitors.

Use quad-view mode to preview all four inputs simultaneously or switch to single-view mode and cycle through your inputs
    Split-Up the Recording
    VS4Recorder Pro will automatically split your recording into separate files, switching to a new file without losing a single frame. You can begin editing the split files as soon as each one is created
    Unattended Recording
    Set a capture duration. VS4Recorder Pro will stop recording automatically at the end of the time specified
    Customizable On-Screen Display
    Configure your VS4Recorder Pro interface just the way you like it. Label and file name overlays in each quadrant can be set to remain on screen or auto-hide after a period of mouse inactivity. Each quadrant also provides controls for source recording, audio monitoring, view mode, elapsed recording time, and hard drive status in a popover area that appears/disappears on mouse activity/inactivity. VS4Recorder Pro also provides visual cues showing the amount of storage and the length of record time remaining on your target hard drive so you don't miss important content
    Beyond Four Channel Recording
    Use the VS4Control feature for synchronized, frame-accurate recording of an unlimited number of video sources. By networking multiple VS4 machines together in a master-slave configuration, you can capture as many channels as you want. On a single network you can have as many VS4 units as needed and group them into any number of master/slave configurations. Additionally, the master/slave groupings can be re-assigned in any way at any time
    Timecode and Metadata Support
    Metadata support for Adobe Premiere CC and CS6 includes original SDI timecode, the session's timecode, or the system time timecode. Additional metadata support provided by VS4Recorder Pro includes label, file names, session name, machine name, event markers, and more
    Event Markers
    Store event markers while recording for use with Adobe Premiere simply by hitting the "star" key
    Audio Monitoring
    Navigate to any quadrant and click the speaker icon to monitor the input's selected audio pair. VS4Recorder Pro automatically directs the audio source to your computer's sound card. Mouse over any speaker icon and a channel-selection flyout appears, offering all available channels by audio pair. In addition, VU meters let you visually monitor up to eight channels of embedded audio per video input
    Shortcut Keys
    Use your mouse or the predefined shortcut keys to control VS4Recorder Pro. Switch between quad-view, single-view and full-screen modes; cycle through your inputs; or start/stop recording an input or a multi-cam session
    Integrate Matrox VS4Recorder Pro Into Your Own Application
