SAN DIEGO, Jan. 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Online video conferencing services innovator Nefsis® today announced product compatibility and API-level support for AJA Video Systems' KONA HD video capture cards. KONA capture cards have long been a staple in broadcast studio and professional video editing suites. With the Nefsis announcement, a KONA capture card can now be used in Nefsis video conferencing and online meeting applications. In particular, the API-level support provides detailed controls over all aspects of video quality for room-based telepresence, telemedicine, and other Nefsis conferencing applications where image quality is paramount.
"Nefsis already supports a wide variety of video devices including plug-and-play USB webcams and virtually anything visible via Windows DirectShow. By taking video support to the API-level we expose more exacting controls for those keenly interested in picture quality prior to the encoding process," said Allen Drennan, Nefsis Chief Technology Officer.
"The KONA is an excellent general purpose capture card with composite, s-video, and HDMI inputs. For us it provides greater control and quality over HD capture, as well as being able to select from multiple inputs such as SDI and even analog based HD capture devices. For the ultimate in power and flexibility, you can capture almost any video stream and use it in a Nefsis online meeting," added Drennan.
