Sensoray brings enhanced performance and flexibility with the Model 1012, 8-channel Mini PCI-Express frame grabber that can simultaneously capture 8 channels of NTSC/PAL video, plus optional 8 channels of mono audio. Each video channel captures at full frame rate 30 fps (for NTSC) or 25 fps (for PAL), which results in an aggregate frame rate of up to 240 fps (for NTSC) or 200 fps (for PAL). The board implements a single-lane (x1) Mini PCI-Express interface that enables it to be plugged into any standard Mini PCI-Express slot. All operating power is supplied from the Mini PCI-Express bus and no external power supply is needed.
All eight composite video inputs are connected through two 16-pin connectors. The video capture resolution can be chosen from D1, VGA, QVGA, CIF, 4CIF, SIF, 4SIF, etc. Captured frames could be in YUYV, YUV420, or RGB555/RGB565 formats.
All eight mono audio inputs can be connected through either of the two 16-pin connectors. The audio sampling rate could be at 8K, 16K, 32K, 44.1K, or 48K Hz.
Software Development Kits (SDK) are available for Linux and Windows. The SDKs include drivers, programming samples, and comprehensive documentation to help users/programmers to quickly start and develop custom applications using the Model 1012.
Sensoray Model 1012 is designated for video surveillance applications. However, it can be used for all other multi-channel vision, image processing, and video capturing + recording applications. With chipset supplier’s expectation, all video source signals are expected from stable video sources. The board is not suitable for weak video signal sources and/or switching video source applications.
