VC104AE VGA+ quad SD video capture



  • VC104AE PCIe, 1x VGA and 4x A/V Video capture - Simultanously

    The VC104AE can simultaneously capture a single channel VGA and quad A/V signals and is designed for SD recording.
    VGA input resolutuions are from 640x400 to 2048x1526,
    Quad SD inputs the input standards are PAL/NTSC, resolutions,176x144 to 768x576 up to 30fps. 

    Video capture/display application is included with the AV Streaming driver which is compatible with various 3rd-party audio and video capture software based on DirectShow and DirectSound.
    Support for Windows, XP, Vista, 7, 8, Server 2003, Server 2008 & R2, SDK for C++ programming included.

    High Performance
    The VC104AE provides safe model for VGA signals and can capture irregular resolutions. It can capture VGA signals whose maximum line sampling number is no more than 4095.

    Professional Video Processing Function
    The VC104AE can scale or crop input signals to your individual requirements. It can automatically remove black edges and manually set the effective area. Functions like high-quality image scale, motion-adaptive de-interlace, the change of color space, Gamma adjustment, and effective DMA transmission will be done in FPGA which can help reduce the CPU load.

    Automatic Capture of VGA Signals
    The VC104AE has the best capability to detect the resolution of VGA input signals, and will automatically adjust to acheive the best parameters, including automatic detection of timing and automatic detection of phase. The VGA timing detection supports the following standards: GTF/CEA/DMT/IBM PC/Apple/VESA. For input signals which do not meet specific timing standards, it will improve and adjust via image analysis algorithm. The automatic phase adjustment can adjust the image to the clearest state automatically. You will no longer need to make manual adjustments in order to get your image capture to the best level.

    Super Small Size
    VC104AE adopts DB 25 interface, which can connect 1 single channel VGA and quad A/V signals. It is Low Profile, and Half Length card, which can be installed easily in a chassis of 2U or standard chassis.

    SDK (Software Development Kit)
    The VC104AE is based on VC++ interface base, and provides simple and easy video capture functions and parameter settings, which makes it easy to do secondary development, and can satisfy customers’ customized requirements.

    Software Compatibility
    The VC104AE adopts standard AV Streaming driver and is compatible with various kinds of audio and video capture software based on DirectShow and DirectSound, such as Windows Media Encoder, Adobe Flash Media Live Encoder, Real Producer Plus, and VideoLAN for Windows, and many more

    ompatibility with other software such as Windows Media Encoder,  VideoLAN for Windows, Adobe Flash Media Live Encoder and Real Producer Plus

    Capture of Multi-channel Signals
    The VC104AE has the feature of SimuStream, and various applications can capture at the same time without lowering the frame rate. It can process the signal source into streaming media of various kinds of formats, various kinds of bit rates, various kinds of resolutions at the same time. It will help reduce the cost and it’s suitable for IPTV and supports various end-user application.
