Features at a glance

DVI2PCIe™ is an internal capture card with a dual-link DVI input for capturing video from DVI, VGA, and HDMI sources. DVI2PCIe also supports DisplayPort, Mini DisplayPort, and Thunderbolt video sources using a converter cable, sold separately. DVI2PCIe supports resolutions up to 2048×2048, with a minimum capture rate of 60 frames per second at 1080p. HDMI video capture is limited to non-copy protected content.

DVI2PCIe works with Windows and Linux machines. Drivers and software are available as free downloads. DVI2PCIe is fully compatible with DirectShow in Windows and Video4Linux in Linux and it can be used with any third party software where an external camera is a video input, such as Skype or Adobe Premiere.

DVI2PCIe fits into a ×4, ×8 or ×16 PCIe 1.x slot and uses the same video capture technologies and common software as the acclaimed DVI2USB 3.0 external video grabber. On-board buffer RAM ensures not a single frame is skipped. For those applications that require a smaller PCIe ×1 form factor, with slightly less performance, please contact us for special orders of DVI2PCIe in a ×1 form factor.

DVI2PCIe Optional A/V Kit The DVI2PCIe A/V kit adds even more functionality to the DVI2PCIe. It consists of two add-on boards that allow the user to add S-Video, 3.5mm stereo or balanced ¼ inch TRS line-in inputs to their existing DVI2PCIe cards.
