8x D1 Video Frame Grabber 3U VPX card

The AVC-VPX is a high-performance 8-channel video capture and overlay controller on a 3U VPX module. The AVC-VPX provides a powerful and flexible solution for capturing up to eight concurrent analog video inputs for local system display or software analysis and processing. The AVC-VPX is ideal for SWaP optimized, mission-critical applications.

The AVC-VPX allows each of the 8 video channels to be captured at full D1 size, all at full frame rate. The captured video data can be streamed continuously to system memory or disk for either immediate local display or further processing. The capture engine of the AVC-VPX features hardware color space conversion to present the captured video data in the format best suited to the end application.

The AVC-VPX is supported by drivers for Windows and Linux.
