PCI-Express frame grabbers

Share this on social media:

The Imaging Source has introduced a new series of PCI-Express frame grabbers. The models ship with a number of different video inputs. Some models are available for low profile PC cases.

The frame grabbers are deployed for applications in which analogue video signals (PAL, CCIR, NTSC, RS-170) need to be processed by a PC. In addition to cameras, such video input devices include ultrasound and x-ray machines. Analogue cameras are not only used in legacy applications. Often they are preferred for price sensitive projects, in which require long cables are required.

The Imaging Source frame grabbers ship with drivers for Windows, the SDK IC Imaging Control and the end user application software IC Capture. The latter is a powerful software that allows the setting of all frame grabber parameters, the display of live video stream and the acquisition of singular images and sequences.
