The VisionRGB-E2 has two complete capture channels
When the RGB/DVI data is displayed on a non Datapath
supporting up to 1920x1080 DVI or 2048x1536 Analog
graphics card, the VisionRGB-E2 sends the data to system
memory or direct to the graphics card, dependant on the
software used for display.
The VisionRGB-E2 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 stream-
The VisionRGB-E2 is an ideal solution for applications that
require the capture of Analog or DVI sources in real time.
Typical applications include:
When a Datapath graphics card is used, the VisionRGB-E2
Viewing Analog or DVI sources from PCs, MACs,
Industrial/medical equipment, cameras and other video
transfers the data directly to the graphics card thereby
increasing performance. The VisionRGB-E2 sends the
relevant portions of each captured image to each display
