Osprey 825e  –  Two Input SDI or DVB-ASI Video/Audio Capture Card with Simulstream

Additional Option:
Osprey 800a  –  Audio Expansion Card for 8xx Series Cards

The Osprey 800a audio input card is a separate expansion board that adds two pairs of balanced audio via XLR connectors along with two additional pairs that can be configured as either unbalanced (RCA), AES/EBU or SPDIF (RCA).

Osprey 800a – Audio Expansion Card

The Osprey 825e 2-Channel SDI Capture Card is a video and embedded audio capture card for Windows and Linux. It features two SDI inputs that can simultaneously capture up to two channels of SD-SDI video or two channels of 1.5 Gbps HD-SDI video, or two channels of 3G-SDI video. In addition it can capture four stereo pairs (eight channels) of SDI-embedded audio per video source.

Ideal for high-density applications, the Osprey 825e card features two independent, highly configurable input channels.

Four Input Formats

  • 3G SDI (424M)
  • HD SDI (292M)
  • SD SDI (259M)
  • DVB-ASI MPTS/SPTS (Windows only)

Fully Independent Inputs
All inputs are clock independent, which allows for different input formats on each input.

Embedded SDI audio
Four stereo pairs per input are available on each input.

Osprey SimulStream®

A standard feature on all Osprey 800 series cards, SimulStream allows each input to produce multiple parallel output streams with completely independent settings for color space, cropping, scaling, closed caption and overlays facilitating simultaneous delivery to multiple applications.

Additional Features
Signal Loss: In the event of signal loss, the Osprey card automatically replaces the lost video with color bars with options for text overlay and audio tones. This feature helps prevent unplanned stoppage of downstream applications upon signal loss.

Video Pre-Processing

  • VBI/VANC closed-caption extraction/on-screen rendering
  • Logo/bitmap overlay
  • Scaling, cropping, de-interlacing and inverse telecine
  • ProcAmp control
  • Vector Scope and Lumi Scope

Driver Support

  • Microsoft® DirectShow® API
  • Linux
  •  Osprey SDK:  An Osprey SDK is also available to allow developers to take full advantage of the Osprey 800e driver capabilities.
