VisionRGB-E1S and VisionSD4+1S

Datapath Ltd, specialists in video capture hardware, HD capture devices cards and multi display; have announced the addition of two new capture cards to their Vision ‘S’ range.

By increasing the bandwidth by 35% of the existing popular Vision range, the new Vision ‘S’ range is now boasting a total DMA engine bandwidth of 650MB/s throughout all of its cards.

The first new card is a single channel RGB/ DVI/ HD capture card enables analog/ DVI data to be triple buffered and copied using DMA to the host system for display, storage and streaming. The second is a SD and HD capture card which has five complete capture channels, including four SD analog capture channels.

VisionRGB-E1S Descriptions and Features:

The VisionRGB-E1S video capture card provides video capture from analog RGB or digital DVI video signals and works at a pixel rate of up to 170MHz (analog) or 165MHz (DVI). The data is captured and recorded on a 32MB buffer. Using direct memory access technology transfers the data to the host system where it is then available for display, storage or streaming.

VisionSD4+ and VisionRGB-E1S

The capture card features include:

  • Support for YUV 4:2:2, RGB5:5:5, 5:6:5, 8:8:8 video output formats – making it compatible with a wide variety of systems
  • 16 cropping windows for the capture channel – providing different views on captured images on a video wall, whether a single or multi display setup
  • High quality down scaling
  • On card processor for real time mode detection – for trouble free connection to a wide variety of video sources
  • Support for multiple cards allowing up to 32 capture channels

VisionSD4+1S Descriptions and Features:

The VisionSD4+1S card is able to capture HD formats up to 1080p with 60 frames per second, HDMI up to 1080p, DVI up to resolutions of 1920 x 1200 pixels and with RGB/ VGA up to 2048 x 1536 pixels. Four composite/ S-video inputs (PAL, NTSC, and SECAM) are supported. The maximum video resolution is 720 x 576 pixels. VisionSD4+1S allows the simultaneous capture of high-resolution DVI-I or HDMI source with up to four standard video sources and is ideally suited to areas such as medical technology, video conferencing and security.

The capture card features include:

  • A 64MB buffer memory per channel, enabling triple buffering for all video modes for tear free video.
  • Direct DMA diver software and streaming driver
  • Four SD capture channels for PAL/NTSC, SECAM (composite or S-video inputs)
  • Support for multiple cards allowing up to 128 SD capture channels plus 32 DVI-I capture channels
  • A maximum sample rate of 1170Mpixels per second analog RGB or 165 MHz DVI. Analog modes up to 340MHz pixel clock can be captured using dual-pass sampling.

“We’re proud we can offer these enhancements to our products in parallel to the many customer driven enhancements we provide through SW updates on a regular basis” said Bjorn Krylander MD at Datapath, continuing “We will continue to focus on innovations which gives the greatest value to our customers”.
