Epiphan AV.io Overview

Transfer up to a 4K HDMI video signal to your computer with Epiphan's robust and compact AV.io 4K Video Grabber.

This sleek capture device features an HDMI input and USB 3.0 output. It supports up to 4096 x 2160 (DCI 4K) resolution on input and allows you to retain the resolution on output or scale it up or down. Connect cameras, mobile devices, home entertainment devices, and other HDMI sources, and transmit the content to your computer with audio, uncompressed, and with near-zero latency.

The AV.io 4K 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.

The AV.io 4K is autodetected on Windows, Mac, and Linux systems, allowing for easy integration. Its USB 3.0 output is backwards-compatible with USB 2.0 but a USB 2.0 port will limit the maximum frame rate and resolution support.

The AV.io 4K 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. Included along with the grabber are a 3 ft HDMI cable and 3 ft USB 3.0 cable, so you'll be able to get started right away.

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.

*For capturing 4K resolutions, Epiphan recommends using a computer with an Intel USB host controller (which is the most common type) to achieve the best results. With other USB host controllers, such as from ASM, AMD, VIA, Renesas, Eltron, Fresco, and TI, capture will be at 79 - 96% of the expected frame rate.

question

can you use about4 cameras at a time for AV.IO ?
Asked by: Jesus2Jesus m.
This product has a single HDMI Input. You will not be able to connect 4 cameras to this. For multiple cameras you would need a PCIe capture card like B&H # MA400DEHDMI, which has 4 HDMI inputs.https://bhpho.to/2bE2GRV

if using for example a Canon 6d mk II which generates a NON clean HDMI out. Will this clean capture card clean up the output once converted a USB signal?
Asked by: Kenneth
The capture device will faithfully reproduce exactly what comes from the HDMI output of your camera. If the camera has the various information of the session included with the HDMI then that's what you'll get on the computer. On many cameras there is an "INFO" button that you can push that will remove the session information from the HDMI output. Also, the camera may indicate a white square around faces if the auto-focus is active. You might need to switch to manual focus to remove the square.

question

Can this device connect Blackmagic 4k broadcast camera to PC for integration with vmix?
Asked by: Lori S.
You cannot use this directly since the Blackmagic Design URSA Broadcast Camera B&H # BLURSABCC only outputs in SDI. You need to convert to HDMI before connecting to the Epiphan AV.io 4K USB 3.1 Gen 1 Video Grabber B&H # EPAVIO4K. We suggest either the affordable Blackmagic Design Teranex Mini SDI to HDMI 12G Converter B&H # BLTRMSDIHDMI or the reliable AJA Hi5-12G 12G-SDI to HDMI 2.0 Mini-Converter B&H # AJHI512G.(Note: new and special order.)
