ViewCast releases Osprey-700 HD input card
ViewCast is now shipping its new Osprey-700 HD video capture card. The Osprey-700 HD is an HD-SDI and SD-SDI A/V input card designed for broadcasters and content owners who need to repurpose HD and SD content for IP video distribution and VOD applications.
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 for ingesting HD/SD video for archiving and/or transcoding in a real-time capture. The product is aimed at users 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 in the even of video loss.
