VGA2PCIe Discontinued Product Description

Epiphan Systems’ VGA2PCIe™ is an internal PCI express-based frame grabber capture card designed for users that require high precision industrial VGA capture using an internal solution. The VGA2PCIe can capture VGA streams at resolutions of up to 1920×1200 in a 24-bit palette, and is able to achieve a maximum capture rate of 85 frames per second. Unlike other solutions, the frame rate of the VGA2PCIe is not dependent on the content of the captured signal, which means that a minimum 35fps capture rate will be achieved regardless of the input source.
