SDI Features

  • Integrated cable equalizer supporting cable lengths up to 755' for HD signals
  • Supports SD/HD/3Ga/3Gb/3Ga-DL/3Gb-DS standards
  • Supports 2K (2048 x 1080) mode
  • Supports RGB 4:4:4, YCbCr 4:4:4, YCbCr 4:2:2 color sampling
  • Supports 10/12-bit color depth
  • Support for up to 8 (mono) audio channels at 48 kHz (channels 1 to 8 from the 16 available in the SDI spec)
  • Supports extraction of audio formation information and channel status data
  • Limited support of 3Gb-DS (only the first stream can be captured)
  • Limited support for capture of the first link of dual link interfaces (YCbCr 4:2:2 10-bit 1080p 50/59.94/60 is captured as 1080i 50/59.94/60; YCbCr 4:4:4 10-bit is captured as 4:2:2; RGB 4:4:4: R/B sub-sampled)

Video Processing Features

  • Two video processing pipelines with 360 MP/s processing bandwidth for each one
  • Full 10-bit video processing
  • Wave, blend top and bottom field, top field only, and bottom field only de-interlacing modes
  • Auto or manual selection of input and output aspect ratio
  • Three aspect ratio conversion modes (ignore (anamorphic), cropping or padding (letterbox or pillarbox))
  • Auto or manual selection of input color format and quantization range
  • Auto or manual selection of output color format, quantization range, and saturation range
  • Supports RGB, YCbCr 601, YCbCr 709, YCbCr 2020 color formats
  • Supports limited or full quantization range
  • Supports limited, full, and extended gamut saturation range
  • Supports PNG OSD image (up to 2048 x 2048)
  • Supports dynamic loading of RGBA OSD image via SDK

Multiple Cards Per System

  • Supports multiple cards in one system
  • On-board rotary switch to set card number, with 16 positions from 0 to F
  • System hardware device tree will display 01: Pro Capture AIO when rotary switch is set to 1, and so on
  • The video and audio device names displayed in your software will include the card number (set by the rotary switch)

Multiple Capture Streams

  • Unlimited capture streams for any one input channel
  • Independent cropping, aspect ratio, color format, resolution, frame rate, de-interlacing, and color adjustment settings for each individual stream

Ultra-Low Latency Support

  • Latency of 64 video lines
  • Partial notification mode in SDK

Timestamp & AV Synchronization

  • Hardware-based 100ns high-resolution clock
  • Audio frames (192 audio samples) & video frames are stamped with hardware clock
  • Hardware clock can be synchronized across cards (via SDK)

Video Output SG-DMA

  • Supports auto detection of Intel tiled GPU surface
  • Supports DirectGMA for AMD video adapter chipsets
  • Supports GPUDirect for NVIDIA video adapter chipsets
  • 400 MB/s per channel DMA bandwidth in PCIe 2.0 system and 200 MB/s per channel DMA bandwidth in PCIe 1.0 system

SDK

  • Pro Capture SDK for DirectShow for easy integration (Windows)
  • Pro Capture SDK for DirectKS for maximum flexibility & performance (Windows)

Windows Driver Tweaks

  • All options can be controlled by three levels of registry key: global level, product level, and device level
  • Video, audio, crossbar filter names can be customized via registry keys

Firmware Upgrade

  • Multiple cards in one system can be upgraded simultaneously
  • Cards can be upgraded without a system power shutdown when it is not in use
  • If power off or system break down occur when the firmware is being upgraded, it will automatically restore to the initial version (this function is only available for firmware version 1.21 and above)
