HD-SDI Video Frame Grabber for Mini PCI Express

The nanoGrabber-HD-SDI is a high-performance, high definition, raw video framegrabber on a single Mini PCI Express card. The nanoGrabber-HD-SDI provides a powerful and flexible solution for capturing HD-SDI digital video for local system display or software analysis and processing. The small form factor of the nanoGrabber-HD-SDI makes it ideal for embedded Situational Awareness systems in the most demanding environment.

The nanoGrabber-HD-SDI supports real-time video capture at up to 1080p30. The flexible capture engine also supports other common HD-SDI resolutions allowing data to be captured from a wide range of sources and sensors.
