Three new advanced video capture cards announced

17 Sep 2013

Three new advanced video capture cards from Datapath feature multiple video channel inputs. The VisionAV-HD and VisionAV-SDI have three independent video capture inputs, with full analogue and digital audio support for applications such as medical, lecture capture, web casting and video conferencing. The VisionHD4 is a four channel, high definition video capture card which offers high performance high density video capture for control room, medical and other applications that require high capture bandwidth.

Two of the three input channels in the VisionAV-HD support high definition capture and the third supports standard definition composite video. For the VisionAV-SDI one input channel supports high definition DVI capture, the second standard definition composite video and the third, high definition SDI video. Both cards offer simultaneous capture from all three channels.

The DVI high definition inputs support HDMI, DVI, RGB and Analog Component (YPbPr) input via a DVI-I connector, at resolutions up to 4096 x 4096 pixels and supports 1080p (1920 x 1080) at 60 frames per second. Standard definition is input as composite video on a single RCA connector and can auto-detect between PAL, NTSC and SECAM formats. For the VisionAV-SDI, the SDI channel supports SD-SDI, HD-SDI and 3G-SDI (including 2K Digital Film Resolution modes).

Four independent video capture channels

The VisionHD4 has four independent video capture channels, supporting high definition capture and analogue video. The signals are input on four DVI-I connectors and can support HDMI, DVI, VGA and analogue Component (YPbPr) at all resolutions up to 4096 x 4096, at 165 MHz Pixel Clock (digital modes) or 170 Megapixel/s in analogue modes.

All four video channels can be captured simultaneously and triple buffered into onboard storage for tear free video, alongside an audio stream that can be selected from four of the HDMI audio ports. There are four capture processors, each providing 800 MB/s bandwidth.
