With the capability to simultaneously capture four independent channels of audio and video, the Osprey® 440 PCI-X™ capture card is a good choice for broadcasters and government agencies.
Additional inputs and outputs.
OEM product developers can take advantage of additional composite video, S-Video, and balanced audio inputs which are available on internal connections on the Osprey 440 circuit board. Security or surveillance OEMs can also access internal contact closure inputs and alarm relay outputs for custom applications. And, a versatile Osprey SDK is available for custom software application developers.
