|Description (from the manufacturer site)|
|ViewCast is proud to introduce a cutting-edge addition to the Osprey® PCIe® family: the Osprey 240e professional analog video capture card, featuring legendary Osprey quality for the latest PC architectures. It’s designed especially for the super high-speed PCI Express® bus.
The Osprey 240e is the ideal PCI Express (PCIe) analog card for broadcast professionals and global OEM systems integrators. With its component, composite and S-Video inputs and its professional balanced audio features, it’s the card of choice for high quality, reliable video capture.
Optimized for the Latest PC architectures
PC manufacturers have adopted the PCI Express® bus as the latest high-throughput internal bus architecture. The best PC graphics cards use this bus because it unleashes the power of modern multi-core PC engines. ViewCast chose the PCI Express bus for the Osprey 240e for the same reasons - unfettered access to all PC resources. No bottlenecks, no mysterious glitches, no unexplained hiccups, no random data collisions. Just smooth, unadulterated power. Power that can support multiple Osprey PCIe cards in one system.
Optimized for Live Streaming
Take advantage of the Osprey 240e’s Designed for Live features, such as Logo Bitmap Overlay with transparency and positioning controls. Automatically detect and adapt on-the-fly when the input video format changes from Movie frame rates to Television frame rates. The Osprey 240e can do the job today and is ready for your future applications.
Multiple Streams per Input
Purchase the Osprey 240e with Simulstream® and feed audio and video to multiple encoders at the same time. Use it with Niagara SCX® to easily create and manage live streams in RealVideo®, Windows Media®, Adobe® Flash® Video and MPEG-4 at the same time, in any combination. Or create multiple streams of the same type with completely independent settings for sizing, scaling, logos and bit rate.
Global Standards Support
Like all Osprey cards, the Osprey 240e 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.
Professional Features for Broadcasters
Features like color space conversion, automatic telecine detection and processing, and automatic optimization for changing motion content make this a perfect choice for broadcast professionals. We’ve added broadcaster-requested features like Loss of Video Detection that lets you automatically substitute internally generated SMPTE color bars with an optional text overlay.
Compatible with Popular Application Software
The Osprey 240e 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.
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.
Legendary Osprey reliability means you can count on rock-solid performance, day in and day out.
The Osprey 240e’s low-profile format makes it easy to use with small form factor computers. Attach the included low-profile mounting bracket and plug it directly into any 2U server. No need to use cumbersome riser cards. T he Osprey 240e is the premier solution for rack-mount encoding farms, custom enclosures and other form-factor constrained environments.
Whatever the analog A/V source, the Osprey 240e is a highly versatile solution delivering smooth integration into your content re-purposing workflow.

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.
