EMS XtremeHD2-SQX Triple Channel HDMI/DVI/RGB/YPbPr/SD/Composite Video Capture CardThe XtremeHD2-SQX is a four lane PCI Express capture card with three video capture inputs - two supporting HD capture and a third supporting SD composite video, these three independent video channels can be captured simultaneously. The XtremeHD2-SQX also adds multiple channels of audio capture, which can be synchronised in software using time stamping with all video capture channels.
Advanced Capture & IP Streaming Technology
Capturing and encoding video for digital streaming or storing is a key requirement for the professional AV market . Users need to be able to capture video and not only send the data to the screen but transport compressed video to online resources or to storage locations for remote access or later retrieval.
TheEMS XtremeHD2-SQX is an advanced video capture card with SQX technology that allows captured video to be encoded into H.264. Featuring three independent capture channels the XtremeHD2-SQX allows users to capture two high definition 1920x1200 video feeds and directly encode them into H.264 using the dedicated SQX processor.
Each encoded video can be utilized by the SQX media server for distribution over a network. In addition raw captured video can be rapidly transferred to graphics hardware or system buffers for viewing or further processing.
Users of the XtremeHD2-SQX capture and encoding card from EMS will be familiar with the common features readily found in the Xtreme capture card range. In addition to the available seven colour formats offered by all Xtreme capture cards, RGB8, RGB565, RGB24, RGB32, YUY2 and NV12, the XtremeHD2-SQX offers users an additional H264 compressed video format. This makes the XtremeHD2-SQX both an un-compressed and compressed video capture card. The compressed H264 video format is created using an in-built hardware encoder, system CPU resources are not compromised. This hardware acceleration allows the XtremeHD2-SQX hardware to be operated in scalable environments, under the control of a single Windows operating system.
