Analog PCI Express® power

The Osprey 240e professional analog video capture card produces quality for the latest high-performance PC architectures. It is designed especially for the high-speed PCI Express® (PCIe) bus.

Optimized for the latest PC architectures.

PC manufacturers have adopted the PCIe bus as the latest high-throughput internal bus architecture. The best PC graphics cards use this bus because it unleashes the power of modern multi-core PC engine with unfettered access to all PC resources - power that can support multiple Osprey PCIe cards in one system.

Optimized for live streaming.

Take advantage of the Osprey 240e card’s features, such as logo/bitmap overlay with transparency and positioning controls. Automatically detect and adapt on-the-fly when the input video format changes from movie frame rates to television frame rates. The Osprey 240e can do the job today and it’s ready for your future applications.

Multiple streams per input.

Purchase the Osprey 240e with SimulStream® and feed audio and video to multiple encoders at the same time. Or, create multiple streams of the same type with completely independent settings for sizing, scaling, logos and bit rates.

Global standards support.

Like all Osprey cards, the Osprey 240e supports global analog standard-definition (SD) formats, including NTSC and PAL. If you are a global OEM integrator seeking a single-solution deployment strategy, this card’s for you.

Professional features for broadcasters.

Features, such as color space conversion, automatic telecine detection and processing, and automatic optimi-zation for changing motion content, make this a perfect choice for broadcast professionals. We’ve added the broadcaster-requested feature, loss of video detection, which lets you automatically substitute internally generated SMPTE color bars with an optional text overlay.
