A new frame grabber is equipped with eight asynchronous input channels and a high-speed PCI Express x 1 interface. With the Model 812 PCI Express 8-Channel Frame Grabber from Sensoray, each video channel captures at full frame rate of 30 frames per second (fps) for NTSC or 25 fps for PAL, which results in an aggregate frame rate of up to 240 fps for NTSC or 200 fps for PAL. Associatively, eight channels of mono audio can be captured as well. The board implements a PCI Express x 1 interface that facilitates plug and play operation into any width of PCI Express slots. All operating power is supplied from the PCI Express bus and no external power supply is needed.

It is a complete hardware solution for applications such as high-performance image capture, multi-camera security applications, product inspection, etc. The captured video data can be streamed continuously to system memory or disk for either immediate local display or further processing. All eight composite video inputs are connected through a DB 15 connector, or through an optional DB 15-to-BNC breakout cable. An additional 34-pin connector can be used for breaking-in the all composite video input signals. Video capture resolutions include D 1, VGA, QVGA, CIF, 4CIF, SIF and 4SIF. Captured frames can be in YUYV, YUV420, or RGB555/RGB565 formats. Similarly, DB 15 connector and in-one 34-pin connector are provided for audio inputs. The audio sampling rate can be at 8K, 16K, 32K, 44K, 1K, or 48K Hz.

Sensoray provides an SDK for the Model 812 that includes drivers and programming samples for both Windows and Linux operating systems. OEM quantity 2-9 pricing for the Model 812 is $184. Volume discounts are also available.
