  • Video capture requires intense bandwidth across the system bus, CPU, and memory. North Bridge PCIe slots are strongly recommended.
  • Multi-core processors (4 or more) are recommended to run video applications
  • The Osprey 820e can process large amounts of video data across two inputs. It is important that the host computer has the capacity to process the video data from the Osprey 820e as well as other applications that run concurrently
  • ViewCast recommends using a PCI Express slot with direct lanes to the CPU (preferred method) or a Northbridge (IOH).
