VisionAV- SDI
VisionAV- SDI
Advanced Graphics Display Technology
The VisionAV-SDI has three independent video capture
channels, all channels can be captured simultaneously,
one supporting High Definition DVI capture, a second
decoding Standard Definition composite video and the
third, a High Definition SDI video.
The Standard Definition channel is input as composite
video on a single RCA connector and can auto-detect
between PAL, NTSC and SECAM formats.
The DVI High Definition channel supports HDMI, DVI,
RGB and Analog Component (YPbPr) input via a DVI-I
connector, at resolutions up to 4096 x 4096 pixels and
supports 1080p (1920 x 1080) at 6o frames per
The VisionAV-SDI also adds embedded HDMI and SDI
audio capture, which can be perfectly synchronised
with either video capture channel.
The SDI channel supports SD-SDI, HD-SDI and 3G-SDI
(including 2K Digital Film Resolution modes).

Professional Audio and Video Capture Card
DirectShow drivers for WDM Streaming driver
supports the following applications, to encode, record
and stream video over networks or the Internet:
• Microsoft Media Encoder®
Timestamp support for streaming synchronisation
• Synchronisation of multiple inputs across multiple
• Synchronise systems using network clock
• VirtualDub
• Any other DirectShow encoding software
Flexible and configurable EDID Management
For streaming applications, the VisionAV-SDI can be
used with Windows Media Encoder to compress and
stream captured video. To replay the video, use
Windows® Media Player.
Any application compatible with Windows®
DirectShow technology can use the VisionAV-SDI due
to it built-in WDM support.
Input and output connection via the Audio Breakout
cable which is supplied with the optional AM2 audio
module attached to a 15 pin high density D-type
connector on the Audio Module. The physical
connections comprise of:
• Left and right balanced audio input on female XLR
• Left and right unbalanced line inputs on female
RCA connectors
• Left and right unbalanced line outputs on female
RCA connectors for direct passthrough of selected
analog input
Flexible input/output mixing capabilities.
