Magewell XI100XE-PRO(LP) Video Capture Card

All-in-One HD Capture Card
HD/SD Input
Simultaneously capture 1 3G/HD/SD-SDI, HDMI, DVI, VGA, YPbPr, CVBS and 1 unbalanced stereo audio

1. Features

All-in-One HD/SD signal Input
By XI100XE-PRO, you can capture a majority kinds of signals, including SDI (3G/HD/SD-SDI), HDMI, DVI and other HD digital signals, VGA, YPbPr and other analog HD signals, S-video, CVBS and etc. You can easily capture signals from different kinds of devices by XI100XE-PRO without limitation.

Professional Video Processing
XI100XE-PRO can perform features like random image scale, image clip, color space switch, Gamma modification, and DMA transmission to satisfy your individual requirements; it can also automatically remove black edges and support manual settings for effective image area; automatically detect the video source, de-interlace and remove image aliasing.

High Quality Audio and Video Experience
XI100XE-PRO can capture and display original uncompressed HD and SD video with more realistic color rendition. It adopts high-speed and large-volume image buffer technology, which effectively aviods the video tearing. The high sampling rate and high sampling precision rate can ensure images with high sharpness, rich details and less color edge; the audio capture supports ASRC, Downmix and Mixer, aiming to bring high quality A/V experience to users.

Powerful Performance
The HD capture by XI100XE-PRO can reach 1080p60 and WUXGA(1920*1200/60Hz) with no frames lost and it can dynamically switch the input types. It adopts PCI-E interface for high-speed transmission with major image processing dealt within FPGA, releasing the workload of CPU. Multiple cards can work together within one machine with seperate property setting interface.

Flexible Multiple-Channel Capture
It has the feature of Simultaneous Streaming. The captured images can be used by multiple applications at the same time with no need to lower the frame rate. Applications can adopt different capture formats, and it will process the signal source into multiple formats, multiple bit rates and multiple resolutions at the same time, which helps reduces the hardware cost.

Standard Development Interface, Compatible with More Software
It adopts standard development interface, for example video capture interface based on DirectShow Filter, audio capture interface based on DirectSound, expension interface based on IKsPropertySet. It is compatible with more software, like Windows Media Encoder, Adobe Flash Media Live Encoder, Real Producer Plus, VideoLAN for Windows.

7X24 Hours Non-Stop
All the chips and capacity components adopt the design of 6 layers. The performance is better than similar products. It can easily work for super long hours for 7×24 hours without stop and suppor power management.

Easy Hardware Update
It adopts Magewell exclusive video processing engines, and it is highly flexible. You update Magewell processing engines by firmware and driver update without replacing the hardware. It can achieve the result of hardware update even if the chips remain unchanged. It largely reduces the cost of maintenance and succeeds in providing perfect service.
