Magewell XI104AE Video Capture Card

One single VGA + quad SD video capture card
Best capability to automatically detect resolutions
Simultaneously capture a single VGA + quad A/V signals

1. Features

Integrated Solution for SD Recording
As a leading provider, we abandon PCI interface and adopt PCI-E interface to solve the problem of transmission bandwidth, and meanwhile innovatively integrate the capture of VGA and SD video signals. The XI104AE can simultaneously capture a single channel VGA and quad A/V signals and is designed for SD recording.

High Performance
It provides safe model to VGA signals and can capture irregular resolutions. It can capture VGA signals whose maximum line sampling number is no more than 4095.

Professional Video Processing Function
It can scale or clip input signals to satisfy your individual requirements. It can automatically remove black edges and manually set the effective area. Functions like high-quality image scale, motion-adaptive de-interlace, the switch of color space, Gamma adjustment, and effective DMA transmission will be done in FPGA which can help release CPU and users can use CPU to do other work.

Automatic Capture of VGA Signals
It has the best capability to detect the resolution of input VGA signals, and will automatically adjust it to the best parameters, including automatic detection of timing and automatic detection of phase. The VGA timing detection supports the following standards: GTF/CEA/DMT/IBM PC/Apple/VESA. For input signals which do not meet specific timing standards, it will improve and adjust via image analysis algorithm. The automatic phase adjustment can adjust the image to the clearest state automatically. You no longer bother to set manually in order to get your capture image to the best level.

Super Small Size
XI104AE adopts DB 25 interface, which can connect 1 single channel VGA and quad A/V signals. It satisfies Low Profile, and Half Length standards, which can be installed easily in chassis of 2U or standard chassis.

It is based on VC++ interface base, and provides simple and easy video capture function and parameter settings, which makes it easy to do secondary development, and can satisfy customers’ customized requirements.

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.

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.

Compatibility with More Software
It adopts standard development interface and is based on audio and video capture interface of DirectShow Filter and audio capture interface of DirectSound. It is based on IKsPropertySet expansion interface and its compatible with more software, like Windows Media Encoder, Adobe Flash Media Live Encoder, Real Producer Plus, and VideoLAN for Windows.
