Custom event

Designed for multiple SDI inputs in a single device.

The Osprey 845e is ideal for high-density applications with several input channels in a single device. It includes SDI support for both SD and HD as well as embedded audio in the SDI. This high-density SDI capture card has four independent SDI channels.

A solution for every need.

This card is designed to suit different needs. Capture up to four HD/SD or two 3G independent professional broadcast SDI video sources simultaneously. This one capture card supports:
3G SDI (424M)
