Osprey-827e:- PCIe 2 Channel 3G/HD/SD SDI, HDMI, VGA and DVI Video Capture 


The Osprey-827e is a dual input card and can ingest 3G HD or SD SDI video as well as VGA, HDMI and DVI.

The latest addition to the Osprey Video PCI Express family of capture cards, the Osprey-827e continues the strong tradition of high-quality streaming performance. The Osprey-827e now lets you add audio and video to a traditional graphics interface making it an ideal solution for lecture capture.

Take advantage of advanced video pre-processing features such as logo/bitmap overlay with transparency and positioning controls, de-interlacing, colour space conversion and closed-caption extraction and rendering. Wide screen signaling is also standard as well a SimulStream.

The Osprey-827e uses the compact 4-lane PCI Express interface for a broad range of motherboard support by providing compatibility with 4, 8 and 16 lane PCI Express slots. PC manufacturers have adopted the PCI Express bus as the latest high-throughput internal bus architecture. The best PC graphics cards use this bus because it unleashes the power of modern multi-core PC engines.
