Pro Capture Hexa CVBS

£333.00

Magewell Part Number: 11250

Six channel SD Capture Card

  • CVBS (Video + Audio) x6

Description

The Pro Capture Hexa CVBS captures six channels of CVBS video and six unbalanced stereo audio pairs over a PCI Express 2.0 x1 host interface. Magewell’s second generation of analog PCIe capture card, enables users to cost-effectively convert analog source signals into high-quality digital video and audio data for recording or processing with the latest software.

FPGA-based video processing on the Pro Capture Hexa CVBS provides high-quality de-interlacing, image adjustments, scaling and PAL/NTSC frame rate conversion without tasking the host system’s CPU. The new model also adds powerful features not available on Magewell’s earlier-generation analog capture card, including graphic overlay, support for CEA-608/EIA-608 closed captions, and ultra-low latency as little as 64 video lines.

Firmware Upgrade
Multiple cards in one system can be upgraded simultaneously
Cards can be upgraded without a system power shutdown (In most cases, even a reboot is not needed)
Safe upgrade. If power off or system break down occur when the firmware is being upgraded, it will automatically restore to the initial version. This function is only available for firmware version 1.21 and above.
LED Indicator
Status LEDs indicate the working state of each channel:
• Pulsing slowly: idle
• On: input signal locked
• Off: input signal unlocked
• Double blinks: memory failed or FPGA configuration failed
