The Osprey 480e 8-Channel Composite Video Capture Card can digitize and capture up to 8 channels of standard-definition composite video without audio. This low-profile card can fit in nearly any desktop configuration with an open PCI express slot. To keep the card low-profile, the 8 inputs are located on a breakout cable on BNC connections. RCA video sources can also be connected via the included BNC to RCA adapters. The 480e supports the Medialooks SDK for integrating into advanced production and broadcast workflows. While the card has a low-profile form-factor, both low-profile and standard PCI brackets are included.

VBI extraction


DirectShow-compatible VBI pins are provided on the Video Device CaptureFilter. VBI data includes Vertical Interval Timecode (VITC) in both the NTSCand PAL worlds. In NTSC, line 21 Closed Captioning (although it is part of thevideo interval rather than true VBI data), is commonly treated as VBI data. InPAL, World Standard Teletext (WST) is encoded in the VBI data region.


The driver delivers VBI data as raw waveforms, which are then decodedby external DirectShow filters. DirectShow provides three filters under theclassification WDM Streaming VBI Codecs that will decode data from VBI pins:




CC Decoder




WST Codec


CC Extraction


Both CEA-608 and CEA708 specifications are supported


Can be delivered as Line-21 Byte Pair or as Line-21 GOP Packet


CC data available through DirectShow VBI pin on Video Device Capturefilter. (Both NTSC, PAL, and digital captions)


Decoded CC available through the DirectShow CC pin on the Video DeviceCapture Filter. (Only NTSC and digital captions)


CC data available through V4L2
