The VisionSD4+1 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+1 sends the data to system
2048x1536 Analog resolution, plus four SD analog capture
memory or direct to the graphics card, dependant on the
software used for display.
The VisionSD4+1 captures the Analog/DVI data and triple
The VisionSD4+1 is an ideal solution for applications that
buffers it into onboard storage. This data is then copied
require the capture of an RGB/DVI source simultaneously
using DMA to the host system for display, storage or
with up to four SD video sources. Typical applications
Viewing Analog or DVI sources from PCs, MACs,
When a Datapath graphics card is used, the VisionSD4+1
Industrial/medical equipment, cameras and other video
transfers the data directly to the graphics card thereby
increasing performance. The VisionSD4+1 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.
