  • VC200DE-HDMI
    The real HDMI digital interface

    The VC200DE-HDMI provides high-quality HDMI video capture with 2x input1080p/60Hz with LPCM audio, and has self-adaptive equalizer. It can support 30-meter HDMI input cable, which can fully satisfy users’ requirements in specific environments. The VC200DE-HDMI provides quad HDMI inputs with 2 extended any interface and 2 on the board, which can be connected to the front end of the chasiss. Users can select any interface to capture signals. HDMI 1.4a standard and supports 1080p 36 bits Deep color/2160p 8 bits.
    PCI-Express x4, Half length,700MB/s transmission bandwidth ensures high video capture rates, yet another powerful video capture card for the most demanding applications.

    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.
    Multi-card support, Support for Windows, XP, Vista, 7, 8, Server 2003, Server 2008 & R2, SDK for C++ programming included.

    Professional Video Processing Functions

    The VC200DE-HDMI has the function of adjusting colors, which can adjust the image contrast, brightness, color saturation, hue and Gamma. The brightness and contrast of R, G, B can be set separately, and it provides motion-adaptive de-interlacing. The moving image will have not the blur or trailing, which ensures a clearer moving image.

    Outstanding Image Quality

    The real-time high-quality capture will be in full resolution ultra-HD uncompressed signals. The program generated by ultra-HD material can be captured at its original image quality. The real image capture will not lead to compressed video which may have some loss or lower image quality.

    High Performance

    The VC200DE-HDMI has a high-speed PCI-Express x4 interface, with the throughput at 600-800MB/s and adopts a large volume image buffer, which can achieve higher transmission speed and quality easily. The color space switch, image processing like image mirror, scale, de-interlace will be done within FPGA. It largely reduces the CPU load, and effective DMA transmission further releasing the capability of the CPU. Users can utilize the CPU for other work.

    Software Compatibility
    The VC200DE-HDMI adopts standard AV Streaming driver support 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 .

    Capture of Multi-channel Signals

    The VC200DE-HDMI 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 various end-user applications.

  •  Full Compatibility

    It adopts standard AV Stream driver and is compatible with various kinds of audio and video capture software based on DirectShow interface or audio capture software based on DirectSound interface, such as Windows Media Encoder, Adobe Flash Media Live Encoder, Real Producer Plus, and VideoLAN for Windows, while you do not need to do the secondary development.

    software compatibility

    Multiple Applications can Capture at the Same Time

    It has the function of SimuStream. You can use multiple applications to capture one single signal source, and each channel will not lower the frame rate or affect the working efficiency.

    compatible with multiple applications

    Powerful Stability

    All the chips and capacity components adopt the design of 6 layers. The performance is better than similar products. It can easily work for super long hours for 7×24 hours without stop and suppor power management.

    high stability chips

    Easy Hardware Update

    It adopts Forefront Imaging's exclusive video processing engines, and it is highly flexible. You update Forefront Imaging's processing engines by firmware and driver update without replacing the hardware. It can achieve the result of hardware update even if the chips remain unchanged. It largely reduces the cost of maintenance and succeeds in providing perfect service.
