Frame grabber manufacturer BitFlow has discontinued production of two of its analogue boards, the Alta-AN1 and Alta-AN4 models. The move reflects the shift to digital imaging and BitFlow will now focus its resources and engineering initiatives exclusively on digital technologies.

‘While BitFlow has a reputation in the industry of product longevity, sometimes it becomes a necessity to end-of-life older product families,’ commented Donal Waide, director of sales and marketing for BitFlow. ‘We are excited to empower vision professionals with our new digital frame grabbers to improve their designs, transform quality control systems, and bring innovative solutions to market more cost-effectively.’

BitFlow is offering a final opportunity to purchase Alta-AN1 and Alta-AN4 boards, although the company doesn’t state when the boards will no longer be available.

The company will continue to develop its CoaXPress, Camera Link, and Differential digital frame grabbers.
