PLANO, Texas, April 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- ViewCast Corporation (OTCBB: VCST), a developer of industry-leading solutions for the transformation, management and delivery of digital media over enterprise, broadband, and mobile networks, today unveiled the newest addition to its legendary Osprey® series of high definition (HD) video capture cards. The Osprey 710e HD is an advanced video capture card that allows users to ingest a combination of high-definition serial digital interface (HD/SDI) video and AES digital audio using four built-in AES/EBU inputs. This architecture eliminates the need for separate AES-to-SDI embedding equipment and simplifies overall workflow. Professional broadcasters, governments and OEM system integrators with broadcast-grade, HD/SDI video and AES audio needs can now use one card to deliver digital video and digital audio signals for their webcasting, live streaming, podcasting, mobile TV and Video on Demand (VOD) applications.
"The Osprey 710e HD card affords our professional broadcast customers a powerful new tool to enhance their video with AES/EBU audio capabilities," said ViewCast president and CEO Dave Stoner. "By accommodating digital video and audio processing with one card, we've enabled our customers to deliver the highest quality digital media to their audiences faster and more cost effectively."
The Osprey 710e HD high-definition and standard-definition (SD) combination video capture card comes with advanced features that distinguish it from competing cards used for ingesting video into video editing systems and other applications, including:
- SDI and AES digital audio
- High-powered PCI Express® (PCIe) technology for maximum performance
- Acceptance of both SD and HD inputs
- Automatic adaptation between SD and HD signals
- On-the-fly HD to SD downscaling
- Low-profile architecture for form-factor constrained environments
- Professional broadcaster features, such as loss of video detection, color space conversion, automatic telecine detection and processing, and automatic optimization for changing motion content
The Osprey 710e HD card also comes standard with SimulStream®, a premium driver enhancement that provides the ability to feed multiple encoding applications at the same time. SimulStream can be used with a variety of available streaming codecs to easily create and manage live streams, support SD and HD streams, and create multiple streams of the same type with completely independent settings for sizing, scaling, logos and bit rates. The SimulStream option enables:
- Completely independent settings for sizing, scaling and bit rates, plus logo overlays with dynamic positioning
- A multitude of simultaneous video format outputs
