The VisionSD4+1S RGB/DVI/HD and SD Video Capture Card from DATAPATH is a video capture card with five complete video capture channels supporting a single channel for up to 1920x1080 DVI or 2048x1536 Analog resolution, plus four SD Analog capture channels, and provides a maximum data rate of 650 MB/s. The card captures the Analog/DVI data and triple buffers it into on-board storage. This data is then copied using DMA to the host system for display, storage or streaming. When a Datapath graphics card is used, the VisionSD4+1S transfers the data directly to the graphics card thereby increasing performance.
When the RGB/DVI data is displayed on a non-Datapath graphics card, the VisionSD4+1S sends the data to system memory or direct to the graphics card, dependent on the software used for display.
The VisionSD4+1S video capture card is supplied with a software application for configuring the timing and format of the input sources and displaying the data. Simply connect your external DVI, Analog, or video source into the card, run the VisionSD4+1S application to automatically detect the video source format and display the captured video in a window on your desktop.
The VisionSD4+1S is a suitable solution for applications that require the capture of an RGB/DVI source simultaneously with up to four SD video sources, such as viewing Analog or DVI sources from PCs, MACs, industrial/medical equipment, cameras and other video equipment, streaming video applications, and video wall controllers. For streaming applications, the VisionSD4+1s can be used with Windows Media Encoder to compress and stream captured video. To replay the video, use Windows Media Player. Any application compatible with Windows DirectShow technology can use the VisionSD4+1s due to its built-in WDM support.
