The Vision range of video capture cards are fully integrated with the Datapath family of video wall multi-display products, providing high-resolution digital video support. The VisionSDI2 video capture is supplied with a software application for configuring the format of the input sources and displaying the data. Simply connect your video source into the capture card, run the VisionSDI2 application to automatically detect the video source format and display the captured video in a window on your desktop.
