Dual Channel RGB/DVI/HD Capture Card
Advanced Graphics Display Technology
HD 1080p
HDMI 1080p
DVI - 1920x1200
RGB 2048x1536
The VisionRGB-X2 has two complete capture channels,
The VisionRGB-X2 is an ideal solution for applications that
each supporting up to 1920 x 1200 DVI or 2048x1536 Analog
require the capture of Analog or DVI sources in real time.
Typical applications include:
The VisionRGB-X2 captures the Analog/DVI data and triple
Viewing Analog or DVI sources from PCs, MACs,
buffers it into onboard storage. This data is then copied us-
Industrial/medical equipment, cameras and other video
ing DMA to the host system for display, storage or
When a Datapath graphics card is used, the VisionRGB-X2
transfers the data directly to the graphics card thereby
increasing performance. The VisionRGB-X2 sends the
relevant portions of each captured image to each display
channel and instructs each channel to use its graphics engine to render the data. This fully utilises the hardware and
dramatically increases performance.
When the RGB/DVI data is displayed on a non Datapath
graphics card, the VisionRGB-X2 sends the data to system
memory or direct to the graphics card, dependant on the
software used for display.
