DATAPATH VisionLC-HD Overview

The VisionLC-HD Single-Channel LiveStream Capture Card from Datapath provides HDMI video and audio capture for small form factor appliances being used in medical environments, simulation systems, live events, PC and gaming console capture, lecture and presentation capture, and real-time streaming. More than one card can be added into a system for multiple capture channels. The card allows captured video to be processed and delivered in real time to a processor or graphics card.

The VisionLC-HD capture card supports onboard color space conversion and scaling, providing the ability to efficiently transfer the video signal in a suitable format for rendering or encoding applications. It natively supports 32-, 24-, 16- and 12-bit YUV and RGB formats. Built upon the Microsoft AV Stream framework, the card's inputs can be accessed and enumerated by any DirectShow or Media Foundation supported application.

Please Note: The VisionLC-HD card is not supported for wall controller applications that depend on Datapath's MulitStream technology.
