Four Channel PCI/104 Express Frame Grabber from Sensoray

sensoray911Model 911 from Sensoray is a PCI/104 Express 4-channel frame/video capture device designed for applications requiring a high capture rate from multiple input video channels. It supports capturing from NTSC, PAL, SECAM, RS-170, and CCIR video sources. The Model 911 provides four channels of stereo or mono audio capture associated with the four channels of video respectively.

For each video channel, the frame capture rate is up to 30 fps for NTSC and 25 fps for PAL. The total frame/video capturing rate up to 120 fps for NTSC and 100 fps for PAL. The 911 supports the following capture resolutions: D1.N (NTSC), D1.P (PAL), VGA, QVGA, QQVGA, SIF, 2SIF, 4SIF, CIF, QCIF, SQCIF, 4CIF.

Associated with each channel, general digital I/O signals are also provided for control, trigger, or alarm purposes.

A single +5V power supply through the PCI/104 express bus is required to power the board.
