The AVC8000S is a high performance, 8-channel video capture and overlay controller on a single PCI Express x1 card. The AVC8000S provides a flexible solution for capturing up to eight concurrent analog video inputs for software analysis and processing or local system display.

The AVC8000S supports capturing all 8 of the video channels at full D1 resolution and at full frame rate. The capture engine of the AVC8000S features hardware color space conversion to present the captured video data in the format best suited to the end application. The captured video data can then be streamed continuously over the PCI Express bus to either system memory or disk for immediate local display or further processing as required by the application.

The AVC8000S is available with drivers for Windows and Linux.
