Magewell XI200XE-MINI Video Capture Card

Dual 1080p HD video capture card
Low power consumption and high performance
Simultaneously capture dual HD video signal

1. Features:

2-channle Universal HD 1080p Input
It can simultaneously capture 2-channel HD 1080p signals with each channel at 1080p/60 Hz, including DVI video signals, HDMI audio and video signals, VGA analog signals, Y/Pb/Pr analog signals, and CVBS analog signals.

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. It adopts AD converter with the sample precision rate at 10 bits. The image details are colorful with a high signal noise rate which reduces the color edges to the maximum extent.

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. 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.

Automatic Capture of VGA
It has the best capability of automatically detecting the resolution of input VGA, and adjusting it to the best parameters, including automatic timing detection and phase detection. The VGA automatic timing detection supports the following timing 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.

High Performance
It adopts high-speed PCI-Express x4 interface, with the transmission bandwidth at 480 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.

Low Power Consumption and Super Small Size
It can simultaneously capture 2-channel 1080p video signal while the power consumption is only 8w. The size is only 86.16mm x 116.99mm, which is 30% smaller compared with similar products.

Support Super Long DVI/HDMI Input Cable
It has the self-adaptive equalizer, and support 30-meter HDMI input cable. It fully satisfies users requirements in specific situations.

Full Compatibility
It adopts standard AV Stream driver and is compatible with various kinds of audio and video capture software based on DirectShow interface or audio capture software based on DirectSound interface, such as Windows Media Encoder, Adobe Flash Media Live Encoder, Real Producer Plus, and VideoLAN for Windows, while you do not need to do the secondary development

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.

Powerful Stability
All the chips and capacity cells are imported components of high quality. It adopts the design of 6 layers. The signal performance is better than similar products, which can work at its full capacity for super long hours, i.e. continuously work 24h x7 without stop.

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.
