Epiphan ESP1138 Overview

Transfer up to a 1080p / WUXGA DVI video signal to your computer with the robust and compact Epiphan AV.io HD Video Grabber. Using included adapters, do the same with HDMI and VGA signals.

The AV.io HD is a UVC device that shows up on your computer as a webcam. As a UVC device it's designed to integrate with a capture software on your computer, and it's seamlessly compatible with all the popular capture software, including Wirecast, Skype, QuickTime, Adobe FMLE, VLC media player, Windows Camera, and any conferencing software. The captured data can be used for a variety of purposes, like high-end streaming, webcam applications requiring higher image quality than standard webcams offer, and for recording, such as if a doctor needs to capture an ultrasound.

This sleek capture device features a DVI input and USB 3.0 output (USB 2.0 backwards-compatible), and includes a DVI-to-HDMI adapter and DVI-to-VGA adapter cable. It supports up to 1080p and 1920 x 1200 WUXGA resolution on both input and output at up to 60 fps. Connect cameras, mobile devices, home entertainment devices, and other DVI, HDMI, and VGA sources, and transmit the content to your computer uncompressed and with near-zero latency.

The AV.io HD is auto-detected on Windows, Mac, and Linux systems, allowing for for easy integration. This device has a tough build and can be relied on for long-term use. It has a metal exterior that's strong enough to withstand being dropped as well as stepped on. A DVI cable and USB 3.0 cable are also included, so you have everything you need right out of the box.

Note:
High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) is a form of digital copy protection intended to prevent illegal copying of video and audio content. The AV.io 4K cannot capture from video sources protected by HDCP.

What is the power consumption of this device at worst case?
Asked by: Andrew
I haven't measured how much power it draws. However, It doesn't need a power supply. It runs only on what is provided by USB. It does get warm so if you are running off a laptop battery it will probably draw down the battery much quicker than normal.

Can I transfer video from old Mini-digital 8mm and older analog 8mm camcorders to laptop for burning to DVD software?
Asked by: P
If your 8mm camcorder can push output to DVI or anything that can be adapted, yes. but if your output is RCA composite or R-G-B component video, you will need an appropriate adapter. I don't recall any being included in the package.

Is it possilble to do a live broadcast video recording into Premiere? We are a school wanting to upload our classes. Our setup right now are a few cameras connected to a video switcher, into a Epiphan video capture card and HDMI into a laptop. We want to record direct into Premiere, edit and upload to our site. Is this possible?
Asked by: Anthony
Adobe Premiere does not allow for live streaming. However this can certainly be used with other applications and softwares for streaming, like OBS.

What differentiates this from something like the Blackmagic mini recorder? There is quite a difference in price?
Asked by: Terence
I had a Blackmagic. It required some drivers and it was still not stable in giving me a connection. I used the Epiphan as I needed to connect a presenter's computer to mine so I could livestream the slides off his computer. The premium price was worthwhile as it allowed me to create a network between his computer and mine. But if you just want to connect video cam to your computer then the elgato Camlink is what you want. It's inexpensive and works flawlessly.

question

Pardon the ignorance, but what's the difference between this and the Blackmagic intensity shuttle, except for being almost twice the price, with less connection options?
Asked by: Eli
The AV.io HD does the video processing in the device. This makes it compatible with applications like Skype and removes the burden from your processor CPU. Most cheaper options rely on your processor to compress video, resulting in high CPU loads and a device that is picky about which motherboards chip set you have chosen.

question

Will it work with a USB 2.0 Mac?
Asked by: Nicholas D.
It does work with USB 2.0 but it might not support full resolution due to the bandwidth restrictions
