ViewCast? Corporation has launched its Osprey-530 digital video capture card, the newest addition to the company's Osprey Studio Series, with all the inputs and features broadcast professionals expect. Available immediately, the card offers a combination of digital and analog inputs for live and on-demand video streaming, and interfaces with high-end broadcast gear. It is the direct result of feedback from broadcast professionals for a cost-effective solution to their needs.
"The Osprey-530 helps professionals easily capture and convert both analog
and digital video into streaming content," said Dave Stoner, president and
COO of ViewCast Corporation. "It's been developed based on input from
customers and resellers, who wanted a cost-effective - but equally
feature-rich and reliable - option to other members of our Osprey family."
ViewCast's Osprey cards are the standard in narrowband and broadband
streaming applications, applying industry-standard formats from Real
Networks and Microsoft. The cards combine media capture capabilities with
MPEG encoding to deliver DVD-quality video for networked streaming
The Osprey-530 captures, compresses, transmits, receives, decompresses and
displays full-motion video. Its features include closed caption extraction
from analog and Serial Digital Interface (SDI) inputs, enhanced audio/video
synchronization and analog audio/video outputs for real-time monitoring.
This new card is a compliment to the Osprey-560, which includes all these
features and a DV input.
The Osprey-530 also integrates with ViewCast's Niagara? SCX? video encoders, allowing remote encoder management and control.
