Osprey launches USB Video Bridge capture devices

Osprey Video has launched the USB Video Bridge line of three stand-alone video-capture devices for broadcast and pro AV.

The units let users capture uncompressed video and embedded audio to PCs or other USB 3.0-equipped devices used for broadcast-quality streaming. They offer driverless operation and automatic functionality.

Organisations that stream conferences can input a 1080p60 signal into a laptop for use by Skype, Zoom or other conferencing software. In other streaming scenarios, users can send signals through the USB Video Bridge into laptop software that connects directly to services such as Facebook, YouTube and Wowza Cloud for internet broadcasting.

The cross-platform USB Video Bridge is UAC/UVC-compliant, meaning that in many Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X applications, there's no need to download a driver. UAC/UVC support is also included in some of the latest Android devices. USB Video Bridge communicates directly with users' encoding applications to configure scaling and frame-rate conversion automatically. Users can also override the software settings and configure the unit manually using the device's top-mounted LCD and control interface. The screen also displays the status of video input and output.
