Single channel "LiveStream:Capture" card


Discreet video capture is now the mainstay of many small form factor appliances being used in markets such as lecture capture, distance learning and medical environments. The XtremeLC-SDI provides tri-band SDI capture for use within such applications. Our LiveStream:Capture architecture allows captures video to be processed and delivered in real time to a processor or graphics card.


This XtremeLC-SDI supports on board colour space conversion and scaling, providing the ability to efficiently transfer the video signal in a suitable format for rendering or encoding applications. The XtremeLC-SDI natively supports 32, 24, 16 and 12 bit YUV and RGB formats


Multi-application capture

The XtremeLC-SDI capture card has been designed for use within application models such as:


A few example applications:


  • Medical environments
  • Simulation systems
  • Live events
  • PC and gaming console capture
  • Lecture and presentation capture
  • RealTime streaming

It is also possible to put more than a single card into a system for multiple capture channels.


Due to the nature of the LiveStream:Capture architecture, the XtremeLC-SDI s not supported for wall controller applications that depend on EMS's MultiStream technology.
