The VisionDVI-DL Single-Channel Dual-Link DVI Capture Card from DATAPATH is a single-channel stand-alone PCI Express dual-link DVI capture card. The card has a 650MB/s transfer bandwidth, and a maximum canvas of 4K x 4K that allows any DVI source to be captured. Integrated DVI equalizers on its inputs support longer input cable lengths, up to 65.6' (20m). The video capture card is suitable for a wide range of applications, including large video walls, high-resolution and high-bandwidth applications, advanced medical and machine video capture, IP Render decode capture, radar, security/surveillance, and military applications.

The VisionDVI-DL card 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 card, run the VisionDVI-DL application to automatically detect the video source resolution and display the captured video in a window on your desktop. For streaming applications, the VisionDVI-DL capture card 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 VisionDVI-DL capture card due to its built-in WDM support.

The Datapath Wall Control-red video wall software enables you to configure your multi-screen display, launch video overlays and create a video wall layout configuration. With the full version, it is possible to save layouts and recall them for future use and also operate Wall Control video wall software on a remote PC via a network connection. The Wall Control-red presents a representational window of the entire display wall showing position and size of video windows.
