Magewell XI102XE-HD Video Capture Card

1 HD + dual 3G-SDI capture card
Low cost and high performance, integrated solution
Simultaneously capture 1 HD video signals + 2 SD/HD/3G-SDI (embedded audio)

 1. Features:

3Gbps -SDI
XI102XE-HD fully supports SD/HD/3G-SDI, and enables to embed 8-channel audio signals at 48KHz. You can connect it to any devices with SDI interface. Each interface supports SD, HD, or even 3Gb/s SDI speed. SDI interface has been widely applied to radio and television industry. It is digital transmission and supports embedded audio. The transmission is done by a 75-Ohms coaxial cable. The coaxial cable is widely used in cable TV and can be purchased easily. It supports long-distance transmission. It can transmit 100m when its at 1080p/60Hz while above 200m when its at 1080i/60hz.

HD Input
It adopts DVI-I HD input interface, which can support VGA, DVI, HDMI, component, CVBS input signals with video signals at 1080p/60Hz.

Automatic Detection and Process of Input Format
It can automatically judge the format of input signals, and can detect the input signal without manual selection. It can automatically adjust image, detect the effective area and remove the black edges. It has the best capability to detect the resolutions and supports a majority of resolutions without manual settings, which can satisfy users personalized requirements of VGA capture.

Integrated Solution for HD Live Recording
XI102XE-HD can simultaneously capture 1 VGA signal and dual SDI signals. So far there is no such integrated capture card for HD live recording in the market. Compared with similar combination, XI102XE-HD can help you effectively lower the cost, improve the system stability and lower the power consumption of system.

Various Video Processing Functions
It has various video processing functions. You can clip or scale the image, and adjust the color, such as the contrast, brightness, saturation, hue, Gamma adjustment. It also supports automatic motion-adaptive de-interlacing and vertical flip to ensure the clearness and purity of the image and color.

High Bandwidth Transmission
It adopts PCI-Express x4 interface and does not need to apply bandwidth from the bus, which can provides higher transmission speed and quality. The actual transmission speed can reach 600-800 MB/s which can solve the bandwidth requirements when 1 HD audio and video and dual 3G-SDI are captured simultaneously.

Compatibility with more software
The driver meets Microsoft AVStream standard, and it adopts standard development interface. The video capture interface is based on DirectShow Filter and the audio capture is based on DirectSound interface. The extension interface is based on IKsPropertySet and is compatible with all the stream media software in Windows OS.

Multiple Applications can Capture at the Same Time
It has the function of Simultaneous Streaming. You can use multiple applications to capture one single signal source, and each channel will not lower the frame rate or affect the working efficiency.

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.
