HD/SD Video Capture Card
HD/SD Video Capture Card
Advanced Graphics Display Technology
The VisionSD4+1S has five complete capture channels
The VisionSD4+1S is an ideal solution for applications that
supporting a single channel for up to 1920x1080 DVI or
require the capture of an RGB/DVI source simultaneously
2048x1536 Analog resolution, plus four SD composite or
with up to four SD video sources. Typical applications
S-video capture channels. Also supporting a SD maximum
capture resolution of 720 x576 x 16bit.
The VisionSD4+1S captures the Analog/DVI data and triple
buffers it into onboard storage. This data is then copied
using DMA to the host system for display, storage or

transfers the data directly to the graphics card thereby
increasing performance. The VisionSD4+1S sends the
DirectShow drivers for WDM Streaming driver supports the
relevant portions of each captured image to each display

Microsoft Media Encoder®
and dramatically increases performance.
Adobe Flash Encoder

When the RGB/DVI data is displayed on a non Datapath
graphics card, the VisionSD4+1S sends the data to system
memory or direct to the graphics card, dependent on the
software used for display.
Four channel SD Video + one channel RGB/DVI/HD
For streaming applications, the VisionSD4+1s can
