Multi-channel PCI Express® power

The Osprey 450e 4-channel professional analog video capture card provides the legendary Osprey quality for the latest PC architectures. Designed especially for the high-speed PCI Express® (PCIe) bus.

Reduce system costs via multi-channel video capture.

The Osprey 450e is a PCIe card designed to simultaneously capture four independent channels of analog video and unbalanced stereo audio signals and process them independently, minimizing internal PC space requirements. The channel density offered by the Osprey 450e dramatically reduces total system cost by increasing the capture capacity within a single system.

The Osprey 450e A/V option includes additional internal video inputs and 4 additional balanced audio inputs that can be switched in as alternatives to the rear panel connectors. The internal video inputs include the selection of component or Y/C (S-Video) for each of the 4 channels or 3 additional composite inputs for a total of 12 composites inputs per card.

Optimized for the latest PC architectures.

PC manufacturers have adopted the PCI Express (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 engines with unfettered access to all PC resources. A power that can support multiple Osprey PCIe cards in one system.

Optimized for live streaming.

Take advantage of the Osprey 450e 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 450e can do the job today and it’s ready for your future applications.

Multiple streams per input.

Purchase the Osprey 450e with SimulStream® to feed audio and video to multiple encoders at the same time. Or, create multiple same type streams with completely independent settings for sizing, scaling, logos and bit rates.
