VGA2PCIe Product Overview
The VGA2PCIe product has been discontinued and replaced with DVI2PCIe, a substitute PCIe frame grabber with more features and higher performance. New projects should choose the DVI2PCIe card. For existing projects, the DVI2PCIe card is backward compatible with VGA2PCIe applications. No change to application is required.
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.
VGA2PCIe Key Features
- PCI Express professional internal video capture card
- Capture output from a VGA source with resolutions up to 1920x1200
- 35 to 85 frames per second capture rate
- Drivers for Windows, Mac, and Linux platforms
- Interfaces to multiple 3rd party applications compatible with DirectShow on Windows, QuickTime on Mac OS X and V4L (Video4Linux) on Linux
VGA2PCIe Form Factor
VGA2PCIe fits into a ×1, ×4, ×8 or ×16 PCIe 1.x slot and incorporates the same capture technologies as the acclaimed VGA2USB Pro and VGA2Ethernet external frame grabbers. Furthermore, 128MB of on-board buffer RAM ensures not a single frame is skipped.
