Description

Magewell Eco Capture SDI 4K Plus M.2 – This high-performance card captures one channel of 4K video up to 4096×2160 at full 60 frames per second over a single-link, 12G-SDI interface.

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.

The new 4K 12G-SDI model joins four existing Eco Capture M.2 configurations; a single-channel model that captures 4K video at 30fps via an HDMI interface; dual-channel models that capture HD and 2K video over HDMI or SDI; and a quad-channel HD/2K model with SDI inputs. All five Eco Capture products also support up to eight channels of embedded audio per input.

Interface

Magewell Eco Capture SDI 4K Plus M.2

Standard Size & High-Speed Interface

Use high-speed interface with M.2 connector (PCIe Gen2) providing sufficient bandwidth for capturing multiple HD signals or one 4Kp30 signal. The card is in M.2 standard size of 22 x 80 mm.

Auto-Detection of Input Signal

When the signal is connected, the card will automatically detect the input signal and link the audio input with the video input.

Magewell Eco Capture SDI 4K Plus

The Magewell Eco Capture SDI 4K Plus M.2 model is available with drivers for Windows and Linux operating systems. OS-native capture APIs including DirectShow, DirectKS, V4L2 and ALSA are supported; and a comprehensive SDK enables developers to directly access the full feature set of the cards. The Eco Capture family also provides advantages for manufacturers of products such as smart displays by delivering lower latency than processor architectures often used in System-on-a-Chip devices.

Stream replication enables each input channel to be delivered to multiple software applications simultaneously with identical capture parameters. FPGA-based video processing provides high-quality up/down/cross-scaling, picture controls and color space conversion without tasking the host system CPU.
