Frame Grabber

The PIXCI® SV5L low-profile composite and S-Video PCI frame grabber from EPIX, Buffalo Grove, IL, acquires video from NTSC, RS-170, PAL, CCIR, or S-Video cameras. A 3-input video multiplexer allows signal selection from two mini-BNC inputs or one S-Video. SMA connectors provide TTL Trigger In and Strobe Out. Digitized video is transferred via DMA to the host computer’s PCI bus as fast as the bus will allow and with minimal delay. Included XCAP-Lite software provides adjustments to gain, hue, brightness, saturation, and contrast. It can run up to 8 PIXCI® SV5L frame grabbers in one computer.
