Magewell Eco Capture 12G SDI 4K Plus M.2

The Magewell Eco Capture 12G SDI 4K Plus M.2, Single channel 4Kp60 capture card,

  • Captures 1-channel single-link 12G SDI or quad-link 3G SDI + embedded audio
Ideal for use in small and embedded systems where full-sized PCIe slots are not available. The cost-effective Eco Capture family offers systems integrators and OEM developers a robust capture solution with low power consumption for space-constrained applications. The low-latency Eco Capture devices feature a high-speed PCIe 2.0 bus interface with an M.2 connector and measure just 22x80mm (0.87×3.15in), matching the M.2 2280 size specification.
