Osprey 840e  –  Quad HD/SD-SDI or DVB-ASI Video/Audio Capture Card


Four Input HD/SD SDI or DVB-ASI
Ideal for high-density applications, the Osprey 840e card features four independent, highly configurable input channels.

Three Input Formats

  • 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 are available per 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 Luma 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.

Osprey 800a Audio Input Expansion Board
The Osprey 800a audio input card is a separate expansion board that adds two pairs of balanced audio via XLR connectors along with an two additional pairs that can be configured as either unbalanced (RCA), AES/EBU or SPDIF (RCA).
See the Osprey 800a audio input card datasheet for details.
