Epiphan ESP0444 overview

  • 1Description

The Epiphan VGADVI Recorder allows you to capture and combine audio, Full HD video, and SD video together. This quiet, portable device has 32GB of on-board recording storage or can record directly to a USB-attached drive. It captures, encodes, scales, streams, and records from a variety of HD and SD sources. The simple web interface lets you choose to record and stream a single stream or both as picture-in-picture or separate streams. The VGADVI Recorder is a standalone appliance for recording and/or streaming video display and camera sources.

The VGADVI Recorder is capable of capturing an HD video source such as a computer monitor, RADAR display, or ultrasound monitor as well as an SD video source such as a camera feed. It then records these inputs as two individual time-stamped streams or one picture-in-picture stream. The recorded content can also be streamed live to remote users' browsers or media players. The VGADVI Recorder is easy to setup and use. It works straight out of the box and does not require the use of a computer or any additional equipment. Simply power it on, plug in your sources, and press the on-device button to start recording. A straightforward web interface is available for custom configuration.

Key Features
  • Capture from screens or cameras at Full HD resolution
  • Stream while recording to direct clients or via CDNs
  • Managed and controlled either locally or over a network
  • Use it everywhere -- it's portable with no software to be installed
  • Capture presentation camera, slides, and voice simultaneously
  • DVI and S-Video inputs (supports VGA, HDMI, and Composite via included adapters / RGB Component via optional adapter)

Multi-Source Layouts with Branding
  • Choose to display the video from one or both video sources, side-by-side or in picture-in-picture
  • Automatically scales inputs to match your configured layout settings
  • Add your corporate color as a background, your company logo, and meta data such as the date, time, and presenter name
  • Overlay video with time-stamp information and other text
  • Upload a custom image to display when the channel does not have a signal or if your input signal is interrupted for any reason
A/V Outputs and Network/Control Ports
  • DVI-I video output, 3.5mm stereo audio output, RJ-45 PoE port, and USB 2.0 port
  • Built-in signal converters and output connectors provide pass-through for both DVI-I and audio input sources
  • Connect a headset to the audio output port to monitor the audio input for quality
  • Connect HDMI, DVI, or VGA projectors and displays to the DVI-I port to monitor the DVI-I input source
A/V Inputs
  • Captures two video sources from HDMI, DVI, VGA, S-Video, and Composite video at their native resolutions and frame rates
  • Audio input is provided through a 3.5mm analog stereo audio input
Streaming Protocols
  • Supports a wide range of streaming formats and protocols enabling it to stream video to media players on a wide range of platforms and web browsers using industry standard streaming formats including FLV, ASF, MJPEG, and via TCP/UDP using RTSP

Stream Using UPnP and SAP
  • Media players, smart TVs, set-top boxes, digital signs etc. can play live streams and saved recordings from the VGADVI Recorder via UPnP or SAP
  • Streaming via UPnP and/or SAP is ideal for situations when the destination device is unattended (For example, when the VGADVI Recorder streams to a digital sign that continuously plays a video, the live stream resume feature automatically resumes the stream if there is an interruption
Video Encoding with H.264, MPEG-4, and MJPEG
  • Supports widely used video codecs and file formats (AVI and MOV) to ensure maximum compatibility with commercial viewing and post production software media players such as VLC, Adobe Media Player, Adobe Premiere, and Final Cut Pro
  • Choose codecs to help you maximize your stream quality while minimizing the demand for system resources and bandwidth
  • Use the default settings, or fine tune the operation to your application
  • Video frame rate, encoding bit rate, and key frame interval are among several parameters available to tailor the encoding to your specific requirements
  • Whether you are recording highly dynamic full motion video or slowly changing instrumentation displays Epiphan recorders enable you to direct the encoder to achieve optimal video quality while satisfying bit rate and file size constraints of your specific application and environment
Supports Audio Codecs MP3, AAC, and PCM
  • Supports widely used audio codecs to ensure maximum compatibility with commercial viewing and post production software
  • Use the default settings, or fine tune to meet your requirements
32 GB of Onboard File Storage or Record Directly to USB
  • Stores the video files to an internal solid state memory, with 32 GB of storage, in AVI, MPEG-TS, or MOV format
  • Automatically deletes the oldest recorded file in local storage when disk space runs low and replaces the file with a current file to ensure the latest recordings are available
  • If desired, record directly to an attached USB drive rather than to local storage
  • Manage the size of your recorded video files by configuring the VGADVI Recorder to start a new file based on a time or file-size limit (when the limit is reached, the current recorded file is closed and available for download while a new file is opened for continued recording -- all without missing a frame)
Easy Access to External File Storage
  • Store the files on the device itself, useful when you don't have access to a network or an external device (you can always download the files later)
  • Record directly to a USB drive
