A new cost-effective solution for capturing analog broadcast signals across the PCI bus
15th November 2006. Eurotech has today unveiled the INT-1462, a new RoHS compliant video frame grabber based on the PC/104-Plus form factor, that is a high-performance and cost-effective solution
for capturing analog broadcast signals across the PCI bus.
Potential applications of the INT-1462 include video capture and video overlay. The module allows users to place video data directly into the host memory or into the frame buffer of a video display
The INT-1462 allows for the connection of multiple analog and digital video sources to a CPU module via a single PCI bus
, therfore it is ideal when used as the multimedia hub of an Embedded PC system.
Sample applications include remote video surveillance, medical and industrial imaging, motion detection, traffic monitoring, PC & digital television, digital VCR, desktop videophone, still frame capture and VBI data service
The INT-1462 supports NTSC, PAL, and SECAM video formats at capture resolutions of up to 768x576 pixels and 30 frames per second. It has the ability to also sub-sample, scale, crop and clip images at various resolutions and frame rates.
The INT-1462 module can support four CVBS composite inputs, or three composite video and one S-Video (Y/C) input source
. The board also accepts one audio input and includes 24 flexible digital I/O channels, which can be configured for digital video input, high-speed MPEG stream transport, or to input / output general board-level signals to or from the PC/104-Plus bus.
