To be a video capture workstation the PC must include a USB device driver that can receive images from Epiphan Frame Grabbers. The video capture workstation must also include video capture application software for processing captured images according to your requirements. For example, you may want the video capture application software to display captured images or you may also want to record and print captured images, or you may want to share captured images by broadcasting them across the Internet to a remote location.

An Epiphan Frame Grabber is compatible with Windows, Mac OS X Panther or Linux PC platforms. The video capture workstation components are similar on each of these platforms. A notable difference is that each platform includes different image processing application programming interfaces (APIs):

The following sections describe the video capture workstation software components and APIs on each supported video capture application platform.
