ViewCast intros Osprey-450e PCI Express capture card

Darren Murph

Certainly not your grandmother's capture card, ViewCast's Osprey-450e is aimed directly at the professionals browsing the NAB Show aisles in Las Vegas. The quad-channel capture card takes advantage of the ultra-speedy PCI Express interface and comes "optimized for live streaming video applications with features such as logo bitmap overlay with transparency, positioning controls and the ability to automatically detect and adapt on-the-fly when the input video format changes from movie frame rates to television frame rates." ViewCast even threw in "additional internal video inputs and four additional balanced audio inputs that can be utilized as alternatives to the rear panel connectors." Not a clue what the company plans on charging for this gem (nor any idea what it looks like -- that's the Osprey-440 shown), but we're sure all that will be revealed shortly after the show floor closes down.
