The VisionRGB-E1S has a single video capture device supporting up to 1920×1080 DVI or 2048×1536 analog resolution.

The VisionRGB-E1S captures the Analog/ DVI data and triple buffers it into on-board storage. This data is then copied using DMA to the host system for display, storage or streaming.

VisionRGB-E1S transfers the data directly to the graphics card thereby increasing performance. The VisionRGB-E1S capture card sends the relevant portions of each captured image to each display channel and instructs each channel to use its graphics engine to render the data. This fully utilities the hardware and dramatically increases performance.

The VisionRGB-E1S is an ideal solution for applications that require the capture of analog or DVI sources in real time. Typical applications include:

  • Viewing Analog or DVI sources from PCs, MACs, industrial or medical equipment, cameras and other video equipment
  • Streaming video applications
  • Video wall controllers
