VC204XE capture dual HD+quad SD+Audio



  • VC204XE Connect to Various Kinds of Devices
    Capture Video 2x DVI (HDMI/VGA/Component) and 4x A/V Composite

    The VC204XE, you can capture various kinds of SD and HD video signals. You can connect to 2x HD signal devices, such as DVI, HDMI or analog VGA or Component signals, and that's not all the VC204XE can also capture 4x channel A/V signals. 
    PCI-Express x4, Half length,700MB/s transmission bandwidth ensures high video capture rates, a powerful 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.

    LED screen, laptop, LED TV, cast station, camera.

    Integration of Various Functions
    The VC204XE can simultaneously capture 2-channel HD 1080p signals and 4-channel A/V singles with each HD channel at 1080p/60 Hz, and A/V channel at D1/30Fps with no frame loss. You can scale or crop the HD and SD input signals, to satisfy individual requirements.

    Professional Video Processing Functions
    The card 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 phenomenon of trailing, which ensures a clearer moving image. It adopts AD converter with the sample precision rate at 10 bits. The image details are colorful with a high signal noise rate which reduces the color edges to the maximum extent.

    Outstanding Image Quality
    VC204XE, users can get real-time captured image, with full resolution, high definition and uncompressed. This ensures the quality of original images when the HD material is input into HD programs. The maximum resolution can be up to 2048x 1536. The image will be captured as what it is instead of compressing the video and losing or lowering the image quality. The captured color is clear and vivid.

    High Performance
    The VC204XE has a high-speed PCI-Express x4 interface, with the transmission bandwidth at 600-800 MB/s and adopts a large volume image buffer, which can achieve higher transmission speed and quality easily. The color space switch, image processing such as image mirror/vertical flip, scale, de-interlace will be done within the FPGA. This largely reduces the CPU load, and effective DMA transmission further releases the capability of the CPU. Users can use the CPU to do other work.

    Software Compatibility
    The VC204XE 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 VC200XE 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.

    Small Size with Super Stability
    The powerful VC204XE has super small size, which is only 117mm x 102.8mm. The size is 30% smaller than similar products. All the chips and capacity cells are imported components of high quality. It adopts the design of 6 layers. The signal performance is better than similar products, which can work at its full capacity for long hours, i.e. continuously work 24h x7 without stopping.
