DESCRIPTION
The VisionSD4+1S has five complete capture channels
When the RGB/DVI data is displayed on a non Datapath
supporting a single channel for up to 1920x1080 DVI or
graphics card, the VisionSD4+1S sends the data to system
2048x1536 Analog resolution, plus four SD composite or
memory or direct to the graphics card, dependent on the
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
streaming.
The VisionSD4+1S is an ideal solution for applications that
require the capture of an RGB/DVI source simultaneously
with up to four SD video sources. Typical applications
include:
When a Datapath graphics card is used, the VisionSD4+1S
transfers the data directly to the graphics card thereby
increasing performance. The VisionSD4+1S sends the
