8 Video Capture Device Instruction
XI102XE-HD is based on Microsoft DirectShow interface, three video devices will
be increased in operating system after installation:
 HD Video (XI102XE-HD Adapter x), HD capture device
 SDI Video 1 (XI102XE-HD Adapter x), SD capture device
 SDI Video 2 (XI102XE-HD Adapter x), SD capture device
HD Video (XI102XE-HD Adapter x) is corresponding to DVI-I universal HD input
interface; SDI Video 1 / 2 (XI102XE-HD Adapter x) is corresponding to two yellow
video BNC interface.
XI102XE-HD not only offers basic options, such as image brightness, contrast, hue,
saturation, Gamma and so on, but also provides additional options for setting function.
You can use "Filter Properties dialog window" in DirectShow to set options.
8.1
Display "Filter Properties Dialog Window" In Common
Software
AmCap.exe", choose HD video device "HD Video

9.3.1 Input Signal
9.3.1.1
Input Interface
XI102XE-HD has two types of devices: HD Video and SDI Video
HD input interface: DVI/HDMI, VGA, Y/PbPr, CVBS.
SDI input interface: SDI.
Notes: when HD devices are in “Auto Select Input Interface”, if HDMI and YPbPr
input interfaces both have signal access, then HDMI input is preferred. You must
select CVBS manually, otherwise it will be identified with YPbPr input. Signal must
access Y interface (green RCA interface).
9.3.1.2
Signal Status
The relevant parameters of signal are shown, such as total number of rows, frame rate
(p is progressive scan, i is interlaced), mode, audio frequency.
9.3.2 Image Adjustment
By default, image is auto, but it cannot achieve desired effect, such as black border,
unclear image, picture which needs clipping, it must be adjusted manually. After
adjustment, you can save the preset. Then you can apply preset values without
adjustment when the same signal accesses.
For example as VGA signal adjustment:
Black border adjustment: Through adjust left margin and top margin to eliminate
black border. Every time you can adjust 1 pixel.
Text definition adjustment: adjust line number of samples and sampling phase to
achieve desired definition of text.
Select correct resolution quickly: the capture card cannot identify correct resolution
with the same number of rows, such as 1024x768, 1280x768, 1360x768, 1368x768,
lines are all 768, auto may be all identified as 1024x768, then click “auto”, a list will
pop up as shown below, user can select the correct resolution.

Figure 9, auto pop-up menu
Image clipping: Through adjust image width, height, left margin and top margin to
achieve desired requirement. Increasing/reducing width of image starts from right,
increasing/reducing height of image starts from bottom.
Skills of image clipping as follows:
1. Set scale “fill output image” to confirm whether clipping adjustment is
appropriate.
2. Cut off image left: firstly increase left margin, then reduce image width.
3. Cut off image right: reduce image width.
4. Cut off image top: firstly reduce image height, and then increase top margin.
5. Cut off image bottom: reduce image height.
After image adjustment completes, click "Save Preset" to save current adjustment;
click "Del preset" to delete preset you saved; click "Apply Preset" to apply the saved
preset to current settings.
9.3.3 Image Output
Display output format of current image, set image zoom scale, de-interlace and image
flipping.

Format: display output image size, frame rate, color format.

Scale: provide three ways, fill output image and keep aspect ratio, fill border
to black and keep aspect ratio, clip border.

De-interlace: vertical blend, motion adaptive. Motion adaptive is better, but it
takes up high CPU usage, also you can select “disabled”.
Image: offer two ways, vertical flip and mirror.
