OSPREY 95-00495 Osprey 816e Single Input 3G SDI or DVB-ASI PCIe Capture Card


FREE Ground Shipping


Ideal for high-density applications, the Osprey 816e card features a single highly configurable input.

Osprey SimulStream®
A standard feature on all Osprey 800 series cards, SimulStream allows each input to produce multiple parallel output streams with completely independent settings for color space, cropping, scaling, closed caption and overlays facilitating simultaneous delivery to multiple applications.

Additional Features
Signal Loss: In the event of signal loss, the Osprey card automatically replaces the lost video with color bars with options for text overlay and audio tones. This feature helps prevent unplanned stoppage of downstream applications upon signal loss.

  • VBI/VANC closed-caption extraction/on-screen rendering
  • Logo/bitmap overlay
  • Scaling, cropping, de-interlacing and inverse telecine

    Osprey SDK:
    An Osprey SDK is also available to allow developers to take full advantage of the Osprey 800e driver capabilities.

    Osprey 800a Audio Input Expansion board
    The Osprey 800a audio input card is a separate expansion board that adds two pairs of balanced audio via XLR connectors along with two additional pairs that can be configured as either unbalanced (RCA), AES/EBU (XLR) or SPDIF (RCA).
