What is a frame grabber?
A frame grabber is a portable USB device or stationary PCI card that captures video from nearly any source. (Audio capture is also possible depending on the source and connection.) You can then record video from your sources to your computer and stream it using a range of third-party software. If you’re using Epiphan’s Signature frame grabbers, the Epiphan Capture tool can facilitate the capture of specialized or non-standard sources.
What can I capture?
Frame grabbers can capture video from nearly any type of port including HDMI™, SDI, DVI, and VGA. Devices you can capture could include cameras, other computers, tablets, mobile phones, medical equipment, electronic microscopes, custom-created hardware, and scientific equipment. Depending on your video source, you may be able to define custom parameters using the Epiphan Capture Tool to ensure compatibility with even the most specialized video sources.
