8x D1 Video Frame Grabber with Audio for Mini PCI Express

The nanoAVC8 is a high-performance 8-channel video capture and overlay controller on a single Mini PCI Express card. The nanoAVC8 provides a powerful and flexible solution for capturing up to eight concurrent analog video inputs and 4 audio inputs for local system display or software analysis and processing, ideal for embedded Situational Awareness systems in the most demanding environment.

The nanoAVC8 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 nanoAVC8 features hardware color space conversion to present the captured video data in the format best suited to the end application.

The nanoAVC8 also offers capture of up to 4 mono audio inputs to 8bit raw PCM. All signals are connected to the card via a single high-density IDC connector that carries the 8 video and 4 audio inputs.

The nanoAVC8 is supported by drivers for Windows and Linux.
