The Magewell Pro Capture Dual SDI 4K Plus allows you to capture two 12G-SDI signals in single-link 12G-SDI, dual-link 6G-SDI, or quad-link 3G-SDI, with low-latency processing of only 64 video lines. The PCIe Gen2 x8 capture card supports up to DCI 4K resolution and is compatible with Mac, Windows, and Linux operating systems, as well as popular applications such as OBS.

 

Multiple of these low-profile cards can be plugged into a single host, with an on-board rotary switch allowing you to set the card number. Video engine features include 10-bit video processing, deinterlacing, cropping, color adjustment, hardware timestamp, color space conversion, up/down conversion, aspect ratio conversion, OSD, and SG-DMA transmission mode. The card can be run continuously for 24 hours a day, seven days a week.




More Information

Full Range of Interface Choices

Magewell provides support to most of the popular signals as well as signal from retro and legacy equipment.

Superb Software and OS Compatibility

Users can use the OS and software they are familiar with to ensure high efficiency.

Automatic Input Signal Detection

Users don’t need to select the input signal format to have it correctly recognized.

 

Magewell Video Engine

FPGA-based video processing, effectively reducing CPU usage.

 

Low Latency

Super-low processing and transmission latency down to 64 video lines. For example, the capture latency of 1080p 60Hz and YUY2 can be lower than 1 ms.

Low-latency mode doesn't require SDK integration. To further reduce the total latency, users can integrate Magewell SDK to enable partial notification function. Click here for more information.

Multiple Capture Streams

One video source can be delivered as any number of normal streams or two real-time streams to different software for processing. The resolution, frame rate, deinterlacing mode, image control, etc of each stream can be different.

Each stream can reach the set frame rate with no frame drops. For example, users can live broadcast, record and preview a skiing contest simultaneously using Flash Media Live Encoder, Capture Express and Windows Media Encoder. This function causes 0 CPU usage.

 

Multiple Cards on One Computer

Multiple cards can be installed on the same host and work at the same time. Mark the card by setting the number on the rotary switch.

There are hexadecimal numbers on the rotary switch. Users can set the number on the rotary switch on each card. The number will appear together with the name of the cards in device manager and video capture software. When multiple same cards are mounted, the user can locate a certain card quickly by the number.
