AV.io SDI portable video grabber, with robust full-sized connections

PALO ALTO, CA – October 26, 2015 – Epiphan Video, a leader in professional audiovisual capture, recording, and streaming products, unveiled today the next product in their AV.io line of video grabbers. AV.io SDI is a new portable video grabber that lets audiovisual professionals capture video from 3G-SDI, HD-SDI and SD-SDI with unprecedented simplicity.

AV.io SDI is the easiest SDI capture card you’ll ever use. It doesn’t need any special drivers installed on your computer – plug it in to your USB port and start using it right away. It’s as simple as using a webcam! Windows, Mac and Linux operating systems automatically detect AV.io SDI ensuring compatibility with your favorite software, including Skype, Wirecast and QuickTime.

Like other products from Epiphan Video, AV.io SDI captures uncompressed, crystal-clear Full HD video (1080p) at 60 frames per second with near-zero latency and ultra-high reliability. Small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, yet entirely enclosed in an all-aluminum casing, AV.io SDI is the perfect companion for capturing from your SDI video source.

“We recently released AV.io HD to capture from HDMI sources – sales have taken off and the overwhelming feedback has been It just works! AV.io SDI now brings that same experience to users wishing to capture from SDI cameras or professional video mixing consoles,” said David Kirk, Vice President of Product Marketing.
