Magewell Eco Capture AIO M.2

The Magewell Eco Capture AIO M.2 Card supports one-channel 2K HDMI/SDI input with 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.
