OSPREY 95-00479 Osprey 825e Low-Profile 2-Channel SDI PCIe A/V Capture Card w/ Simulstream


FREE Ground Shipping


The Osprey 825e provides high-quality streaming performance in a compact option. Now, customers can capture twoSDI inputs in a low-profile form factor. This dual input card can ingest 3G, HD and SD SDI and automatically adaptsbetween standard- and high-definition signals.

Take advantage of advanced video pre-processingfeatures such as logo/bitmap overlay with transparencyand positioning controls, de-interlacing, color spaceconversion and closed-caption extraction and rendering.

The Osprey 825e also comes standard withSimulStream®. This driver enhancement providesthe ability to feed multiple encoding applicationsat the same time.
