ViewCast Now Shipping New Osprey-700 HD Audio/Video Capture Card

High Definition Video Capture and Streaming Solution Offers HD-SDI and PCI Express® Compatibility for Broadcasters and Content Owners
Plano, TX(9/7/2007) -

ViewCast Corporation (OTCBB: VCST - News), a leading global provider of high-quality audio and video communication products, is now shipping its new high definition (HD) video capture card, the Osprey-700 HD. The Osprey-700 HD is an HD-SDI and SD-SDI A/V input card designed for broadcasters and content owners needing to repurpose HD and standard definition (SD) content for IP video distribution and video-on-demand applications.

"The Osprey-700 HD is a high-end capture solution for content owners and content aggregators using SDI video capture sources ? both HD and SD," said Dave Stoner, president of ViewCast. "It is the first HD-compatible product from ViewCast and part of the new PCIe? family of ViewCast Osprey capture cards developed for next-generation, high-performance systems."

The Osprey-700 HD captures standard HD and SD video resolutions for 1080p, 1080i, and 720p and scales as needed for streaming applications. It is intended as a quality choice for ingesting HD/SD video for archiving and/or transcoding. The card was designed expressly for real-time capture in a 24/7-unattended environment. New features include the ability to auto-adapt to incoming SD and HD standards without interrupting the encode session, InstantVOD? for delivering any video input with the same format output, automatic logo sizing and positioning when switching between SD and HD modes, and the display of source stream IDs on loss-of-video. Additionally, it supports eight stereo pairs of embedded audio, VBI data extraction and processing for closed-caption and teletext applications, and the Osprey? Digital SimulStream?, through which one source can feed many applications at once.

The Osprey-700 HD utilizes the high-speed PCI Express bus which provides the bandwidth required for high-resolution video capture for a wide range of HD resolutions, including 1080p, at up to 30fps.

The Osprey-700 HD A/V capture card is available now for purchase. More information about the Osprey-700 HD and other ViewCast products is available online at www.viewcast.com.
