Magewell XI200DE-SDI Video Capture Card

Dual channels SD/HD/3G-SDI capture card
2 channels SDI plus 2 loopback

1. Features

3Gbps -SDI

XI200DE-SDI 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. 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.

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 700 MB/s which can solve the bandwidth requirements when 4 channels of 3G-SDI are captured simultaneously.

HD & Multichannel Capturing Solution
XI200DE-SDI can simultaneously capture 4-channel SD/HD/3G-SDI signals, which can completely meets the needs of HD & multichannel capturing solutions. Compared with similar combination, XI200DE-SDI can help you effectively lower the cost and power consumption of system, improve the system stability at the same time.

High Performance
It adopts high-speed PCI-Express x4 interface, with the transmission bandwidth at 700 MB/s and adopts technologies of large volume image buffer, which can achieve higher transmission speed and quality easily. The color space switch, image processing like image mirror, scale, de-interlace will be done within FPGA. It largely reduces the CPU, and effective DMA transmission further releases the capability of CPU. Users can use CPU to do other work.

Outstanding Image Quality
It can capture and display uncompressed HD and SD images. It supports YUY2, UYVY, RGB24, RGB32, I420 with the best image quality. The image will be captured as what it is instead of compressing the video and losing or lowering the image quality. The recovered color is clear and vivid. Your creativeness will fully do itself justice by the high-quality images.

Professional Video Processing Functions
It has the function of adjusting colors, which can adjust the image contrast, brightness, color saturation, hue and Gamma. The brightness and contrast of R, G, B can be set separately, and it provides motion-adaptive de-interlacing. The moving image will have not the phenomenon of trailing, which ensures a clearer moving image.

Powerful Stability
All the chips and capacity components adopt the design of 8 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.
