The Osprey 816e with SimulStream is a PCIe 1.1 video capture card that features a single 3G SDI input. It accepts resolutions up to 1920 x 1080 with frame rates up to 60i/30p and supports up to 8-channels (4 stereo pairs) of embedded SDI audio. Featuring Osprey's SimulStream technology, the SDI input can produce multiple parallel output streams with completely independent settings for colour space, cropping, scaling, closed caption, and overlays, which facilitates simultaneous delivery to multiple applications. Drivers for Windows and Linux systems are available.
In the event of signal loss, the card automatically replaces the lost video with colour bars with options for text overlay and audio tones. This feature helps prevent unplanned stoppage of downstream applications upon signal loss.
An Osprey SDK is available to allow developers to take full advantage of the Osprey 800e series driver capabilities.
Optional Audio Input Expansion Board Available
The optional Osprey 800a audio input card is a separate expansion board that adds two pairs of balanced audio via XLR connectors along with two additional pairs that can be configured as either unbalanced (RCA), AES/EBU (XLR) or SPDIF (RCA).
