Beat Extreme Temperatures with AVerMedia's New Rugged Video Capture Card

Mini PCI-E Card Records High-Quality Video in -40°C to 85°C temperatures


April 12, 2016 – Taipei, Taiwan – AVerMedia today announces the release of another rugged Mini PCI Express capture card that is designed and tested to capture high-quality video in extreme temperatures ranging from -40°C to 85°C (-40°F to 185°F). The brand new CM313BW card is designed to capture video from SDI sources. This card will join AVerMedia's existing wide-temperature cards – the C351W card, which captures video from Composite sources, and the C353W card, which captures from both HDMI and VGA sources.

This thermally robust product line is specifically designed to provide greater flexibility for rugged industrial applications like industrial automation, in-vehicle operation, military applications, and more.

Resilient in Extreme Thermal Environments

Various tasks are often performed in harsh environmental conditions. AVerMedia's new CM313BW card (like our existing C353W and C351W cards) is specifically designed to be thermally resilient for these extreme industrial applications. By being able to function perfectly in a very wide range of temperatures (-40°C ~ 85°C, or -40°F ~ 185°F) these cards ensure reliable and stable high-quality video capturing in extreme temperature conditions.

Convenient, Compact Form Factor

The compact form factor of the Mini PCI Express card fits perfectly into small-footprint embedded systems. These cards also consume less power, resulting in a more energy-efficient solution. These AVerMedia cards feature vibration-proof build quality and their locking holes are specifically designed for in-vehicle, military, and industrial applications.

Hardware H.264 Encoding Reduces Burden on CPUS

The existing C353W card and the new CM313BW cards come equipped with an advanced, built-in H.264 hardware encoder, enabling the system to encode and maintain high video quality, without impacting the CPU. This feature increases the system’s reliability. As a result, the C353W and CM313BW cards significantly reduce the performance drain on a system's hardware and software, helping the system focus on other important tasks.

4-channel simultaneous capture

The existing C351W card features four parallel composite video input interfaces, allowing for more versatility within this compact card. With 4-channel input, the C351W can simultaneously capture up to four video channels at the highest performance levels, for great video quality and efficiency.

Software tools

AVerMedia SDK is a feature-rich development toolkit which offers industrial customers a complete set of functional modules to flexibly and efficiently develop vertical applications. AVerMedia SDK constantly updates the latest industrial standards, protocols, and media formats for optimal compatibility and to support cutting-edge technologies. AVerMedia also supports various programming languages for quick and easy application, providing sample source codes.
