This PCI-X analog card is suitable for broadcast professionals and global OEM systems integrators. With its composite and S-Video inputs and professional balanced audio features, it’s the card of choice for high-quality, reliable video capture.

When used with the SimulStream driver enhancement software, this card lets you feed audio and video to multiple encoders at the same time. It also allows you to create multiple streams of the same type with completely independent settings for sizing, scaling, logos, and bit rate.
