Building on the momentum from the company’s ISE presence in Europe recently, Magewell will bring its growing range of video interface solutions to the 2018 NAB Show in Las Vegas in April. Exhibiting in booth SU6324, the award-winning developer will demonstrate how its feature-rich solutions reliably and cost-effectively help end-users, systems integrators and OEM product designers incorporate professional video and audio signals into today’s software-based media workflows.
In addition to demonstrations of recently-announced solutions, Magewell will also preview a major new product line that expands the company’s scope beyond its well-known strengths in video capture and playout.
Other featured products will include Pro Capture 4K, Eco Capture (M.2), USB Capture Plus and Flex I/O. Magewell’s 4K PCIe capture cards, Pro Capture 4K, combine ultra HD video ingest with features such as CPU-free, FPGA-based video processing. Multiple models provide a flexible choice of input interfaces including HDMI, SDI (single-link 12G, dual-link 6G or quad-link 3G) or DVI. Highlighted configurations will include upcoming dual-channel models that simultaneously capture two independent, 60fps 4K signals on one card.
Eco Capture (M.2) is designed for use in small and embedded systems where full-sized PCIe slots are unavailable. This family of video capture hardware offers OEMs and systems integrators an ultra-compact capture solution with low power consumption for space-limited applications. Featuring an M.2 connector and measuring just 22x80mm, four Eco Capture models offer single-channel 4K, dual-channel HD or quad-channel HD capture.
Magewell’s external, plug-and-play USB Capture Plus devices are a reliable way to bring SDI, HDMI or DVI sources into Windows, Mac, Linux or Chrome OS software. The driver-free devices enable all types of computers including laptops to capture HD or 4K video with audio through a standard USB 3.0 interface. The Flex I/O family of PCIe input-output cards extends Magewell’s video capture benefits to playout applications. The first two Flex I/O models — one offering SDI connectivity, and the other with HDMI — each feature four input channels and two outputs, all of which can be used simultaneously with independent resolutions, frame rates and processing settings for maximum flexibility.
