The 840e Video Capture Card from Osprey features four independent, configurable input channels and is suitable for high-density applications. All inputs are clock independent, which allows for different input formats on each input. The card also features four stereo pairs of embedded SDI audio per input. The 840e can be used for VBI/VANC closed-caption extraction/on-screen rendering, logo/bitmap overlay, scaling, cropping, de-interlacing and inverse telecine, ProcAmp control, Vector Scope, and Luma Scope.
Supports HD SDI (292M), SD SDI (259M), and DVB-ASI MPTS/SPTS (Windows only)
SimulStream allows each input to produce multiple parallel output streams with completely independent settings for color space, cropping, scaling, closed caption, and overlays facilitating simultaneous delivery to multiple applications.
In the event of signal loss, the Osprey card automatically replaces the lost video with color bars with options for text overlay and audio tones. This feature helps prevent unplanned stoppage of downstream applications upon signal loss.
An Osprey SDK is also available to allow developers to take full advantage of the Osprey 800e driver capabilities.
The 840e can be used with the Osprey 800a (available separately). The Osprey 800a audio input card is a separate expansion board that adds two pairs of balanced audio via XLR connectors, along with two additional pairs that can be configured as either unbalanced (RCA), AES/EBU or SPDIF (RCA).
