The VisionHD4 4-Channel DVI/RGB/HD Capture Card from DATAPATH is an eight lane PCI Express capture card with four independent video capture channels, supporting HD capture. The card provides a high performance high density video capture solution for control room, medical and other applications that require high capture bandwidth. The quad HD capture capability in combination with Datapath's multi-stream and synchronization features enables resolutions up to 4096 x 2048 and quad HD solutions.

The VisionHD4 captures all four HD video channels simultaneously and triple buffers them into on-board storage for tear-free video, alongside embedded HDMI audio streams can also be captured from each channel. The full length video capture card has four capture processors, each providing 800 MB/s bandwidth.
