Description (from the manufacturer site)
With the capability to simultaneously capture four independent channels of audio and video, the Osprey® 440 PCI-X™ capture card is a good choice for broadcasters and government agencies. The benefits of higher channel density include efficiencies and cost savings achieved through reduced space requirements and being able to encode multiple channels on one encoding system instead of four. And, as with all Osprey capture cards, quality and reliability come standard.
Optimized for Live Streaming

The Osprey 440 maximizes the effectiveness and management of your streaming operation through its Designed for Live features, such as Logo Bitmap Overlay (graphics over the video) with transparency and positioning controls. The Osprey 440 automatically detects and adapts on-the-fly when the input video format changes from movie frame rates to TV frame rates.
Multiple Streams per Input

Purchase the Osprey 440 with SimulStream® and you can use any or all of the four available inputs to feed multiple encoders at the same time. Use it with ViewCast Niagara SCX® to easily create and manage live streams in RealVideo®, Windows Media®, Flash® Video and MPEG-4 at the same time, in any combination. Or create multiple streams of the same type from each input, independently, with completely independent settings for sizing, scaling, logos, and bit rate.
Global standards support

Like all Osprey cards, the Osprey 440 supports global analog standard-definition formats, including NTSC, PAL, and most others used throughout the world. If you are a global OEM integrator seeking a single-solution deployment strategy, this card’s for you.
Additional inputs and outputs for OEM applications

OEM product developers can take advantage of additional composite video, S-Video, and balanced audio inputs which are available on internal connections on the Osprey 440 circuit board. Security / Surveillance OEMs can also access internal contact closure inputs and alarm relay outputs for custom applications. And there is a versatile Osprey SDK available for custom software application developers.
Compatible with Popular Application Software

The Osprey 440 works with popular video capture and encoding applications, including our own Niagara SCX multi-codec streaming manager. Some of those other cards lock you into a select few applications.
Industry-proven performance

Over 300,000 Osprey cards are in daily worldwide operation in a wide variety of commercial, industrial, and broadcast applications. You’ll find Osprey capture cards in mission-critical applications throughout the world.
Rock-solid stability

Legendary Osprey reliability means you can count on rock-solid performance, day in and day out.

New comments= New comments since your last visit.
New Card= New Capture Card since your last vist.

What kind of main capture features it supports
Analog VideoIn = Analog composite or/and SVHS video input
Video Card = If it is a Video Card/Graphic Card
Tv Tuner = Built-In TV-Tuner
Digital TV = Built-In Digital TV-Tuner
DV/Firewire = DV/Firewire/i.Link input
DV Converter = Analog composite or/and SVHS video input and converts to DV video
MPEG1 hardware = Capture directly MPEG1(VCD) video using hardware*
MPEG2 hardware = Capture directly MPEG2(SVCD and DVD) video using hardware*
MJPEG hardware = Capture directly to MJPEG using hardware*
MPEG4 hardware = Capture directly to MPEG4(DivX,Xvid) video using hardware*
* = Most capture cards can capture to this format using software but it usually requires a very fast computer, if it supports realtime capturing it uses the capture cards hardware and it doesn't require a very fast computer and you may get better quality but less options/settings than software capturing.

What Operating System our users have reported that it works on, Win95=Works Win95=Does not work Win95?=Not tested This is user based.

Cnx = Connection
What type of connection the capture device has to the computer, PCI, AGP, USB1/1.1/2, DV or PCMCIA.
