PLANO, Texas, Aug. 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ViewCast Corporation (OTCBB: VCST) today announced the availability of the Osprey® 845e video capture card, the latest addition to its award-winning Osprey line.

"The Osprey 845e brings a new level of choice to market. Content providers can select from two models based on their definition needs, and still expect an optimum viewing experience. The newest card includes our SimulStream® technology and carries the ViewCast and Osprey tradition of the highest audio and video quality," said John Hammock, President and CEO of ViewCast, a developer of industry-leading solutions that help companies capture and deliver video to broadband and mobile networks.

The Osprey 845e introduces higher channel density with up to four independent SDI inputs and has a true 3G input (SMPTE 424) with only one connector, as opposed to the dual link normally found in other cards.

The Osprey 845e is available in two models, standard definition or high definition SDI, to suit a wide range of applications in broadcasting, enterprise, education, government and global OEM system integration. The standard definition model can be field upgraded to high definition SDI, allowing the customer to manage infrastructure cost. The high-definition model can input four independent HDSDI signals or two 3G SDI signals. Built with the same reliable Osprey drivers, this PCI Express® card also has drivers for Microsoft® Windows® and Linux operating systems.

With more modes and pre-processing features, the Osprey 845e has customer-defined screens for signal loss to prevent streaming interruptions as well as automatic HD-SD input detection and switching. The default frame rate delivered to client applications is also customizable.
