8x D1 Video Frame Grabber M.2 module

The AVC8000M2 is a high-performance 8-channel video capture and overlay controller on a single M.2 form factor PCI Express card. The AVC8000M2 provides a powerful and flexible solution for capturing up to eight concurrent analog video inputs for local system display or software analysis and processing, ideal for embedded Situational Awareness systems in the most demanding environment.

The AVC8000M2 allows each of the 8 video channels to be captured at full D1 size, all at full frame rate. The captured video data can be streamed continuously to system memory or disk for either immediate local display or further processing. The capture engine of the AVC8000M2 features hardware color space conversion to present the captured video data in the format best suited to the end application.

The AVC8000M2 is supported by drivers for Windows and Linux.
