Magewell provides support to most of the popular signals as well as signal from retro and legacy equipment.
Users can use the OS and software they are familiar with to ensure high efficiency.
Users don’t need to select the input signal format to have it correctly recognized.
FPGA-based video processing, effectively reducing CPU usage.
Super-low processing and transmission latency down to 64 video lines. For example, the capture latency of 1080p 60Hz and YUY2 can be lower than 1 ms.
Low-latency mode doesn't require SDK integration. To further reduce the total latency, users can integrate Magewell SDK to enable partial notification function. Click here for more information.
Total Latency Capture Latency
One video source can be delivered as any number of normal streams or two real-time streams to different software for processing. The resolution, frame rate, deinterlacing mode, image control, etc of each stream can be different.
Each stream can reach the set frame rate with no frame drops. For example, users can live broadcast, record and preview a skiing contest simultaneously using Flash Media Live Encoder, Capture Express and Windows Media Encoder. This function causes 0 CPU usage.
Multiple cards can be installed on the same host and work at the same time. Mark the card by setting the number on the rotary switch.
There are hexadecimal numbers on the rotary switch. Users can set the number on the rotary switch on each card. The number will appear together with the name of the cards in device manager and video capture software. When multiple same cards are mounted, the user can locate a certain card quickly by the number.
Support Windows, Linux, macOS. Users can choose their favorite OS.
Windows 7/8/8.1/10/2008/2008 R2/2012 (x86 & x64). Linux (based on V4L2, support x86, x64 &ARM architecture). OS X 10.9–10.11. macOS 10.12.
Optimize or enhance the performance or add functions to the products without changing the hardware. Users can update the firmware for multiple cards simultaneously by themselves.
Provide various APIs and advanced functions to Windows, Linux and Mac professional users.
For more information, please visit SDK.
Pro Capture Family use a universal driver and it will be automatically installed when it starts running.
Support operating system native video capture APIs, including DirectShow, DirectKS, V4L2, ALSA and QuickTime. Support DirectSound based audio acquisition interface, extended interface based on IKsPropertySet. Compatible with almost all software based on DirectShow architecture.
When the signal is connected, the card will automatically detect the input signal and link the audio input with the video input.
Support 3 types of 3D HDMI signals: frame packed, top-and-bottom, and side-by-side.
Pro capture cards can analyze the time information (hour, minute, second and frame) in HDMI signal output by Sony/Canon DSLR.
* Magewell Capture SDK is required to be used for some color spaces. Different models have different capability of color space support.
