Datapath, specialists in video capture hardware, HD capture devices and multi display, has added two capture cards to its Vision S range.

By increasing the bandwidth by 35 per cent of the existing popular Vision range, the new Vision S range is now boasting a total DMA engine bandwidth of 650MB/s throughout all of its cards.

The VisionRGB-E1s video capture card provides video capture from analogue RGB or digital DVI video signals and works at a pixel rate of up to 170MHz (analogue) or 165MHz (DVI). The data is captured and recorded on a 32MB buffer.

The card includes support for YUV 4:2:2, RGB5:5:5, 5:6:5, 8:8:8 video output formats; 16 cropping windows for the capture channel, providing different views on captured images on a video wall; high quality down scaling; on-card processor for real time mode detection; and support for multiple cards allowing up to 32 capture channels.

The VisionSD4+1s card is able to capture HD formats up to 1,080p with 60fps, HDMI up to 1,080p, DVI up to resolutions of 1,920 x 1,200 pixels and with RGB/VGA up to 2,048 x 1,536 pixels. Four composite/S-video inputs (PAL, NTSC, and SECAM) are supported. The maximum video resolution is 720 x 576 pixels. VisionSD4+1s allows the simultaneous capture of high-resolution DVI-I or HDMI source with up to four standard video sources and is ideally suited to areas such as medical technology, video conferencing and security.
