Epiphan Systems unveils VGA2Ethernet frame grabber

December 1, 2008

As the leader in high resolution VGA and DVI frame grabbers, Epiphan Systems always strives to improve upon and create faster, more affordable, and more versatile capture solutions. A first in the industry, the VGA2Ethernet uses a Gigabit Ethernet interface instead of the USB interface used in  the VGA2USB series of frame grabbers in order to connect itself with the target computer. This allows the VGA2Ethernet to reach capture rates well in excess of 100 frames per second, which is much faster than conventional PCI or USB based frame grabbers.

As well, due to the use of the Ethernet interface, the VGA2Ethernet may be placed at a distance from the target computer. As long as the target computer and VGA2Ethernet are connected to the same local area network (LAN), they will be able to communicate with each-other. As with all other Epiphan frame grabbers, the VGA to Ethernet is rugged, portable, and reliable. It uses the same easy-to-use software as the VGA2USB and DVI2USB frame grabbers and has the ability to work with any 3rd party video capture software via supplied WDM drivers. An SDK is also available for developers.
