Magewell expands 4K video capture range

Magewell ProCapture DVI 4K

Magewell has launched the Pro Capture DVI 4K, the fifth model in the company's line of 4K, PCIe video capture cards.

The new model joins the Pro Capture HDMI 4K, Pro Capture HDMI 4K Plus, Pro Capture AIO 4K and Pro Capture AIO 4K Plus cards in delivering 4K capture for users, systems integrators and OEM partners.

The Pro Capture DVI 4K card supports single-link and dual-link DVI inputs, capturing video up to 1080p HD over single-link or 4K 2160p30 over a dual-link connection. The card can also support HDMI 1.4 signals up to 1080p with embedded audio using a simple HDMI-to-DVI adapter.

Designed for pro AV and broadcast applications, the DVI-input model complements Magewell's existing 4K cards. The Pro Capture AIO 4K captures 4K video at up to 30 frames per second over its HDMI 1.4 and 6Gbps SDI interfaces, while the Pro Capture AIO 4K Plus supports 60fps over HDMI 2.0 and 30fps via SDI. The Pro Capture HDMI 4K and Pro Capture HDMI 4K Plus support 30fps and 60fps 4K video, respectively, for HDMI-only uses. All five cards support resolutions up to the 4096x2160 4K digital cinema and production standard, including 3840x2160 4K Ultra HD.

All Magewell Pro Capture cards feature hardware-based video processing, providing deinterlacing, scaling, colour space conversion and video enhancements without taking valuable CPU cycles away from third-party software.

Input video can be fed to multiple software applications simultaneously, with independent control of the resolution, frame rate and video processing for each output.

Magewell's universal Pro Capture drivers support Windows, Mac and Linux operating systems, and offer broad compatibility with collaboration, video conferencing and virtual reality creation software.
