Osprey video technology sets the industry standard for high-quality, rock-solid streaming performance. Utilized in a wide variety of applications – from aerospace to surveillance, Internet TV to webcasting – Osprey cards drive the delivery of video to viewers all around the globe. The Osprey 260e PCI-Express Capture Card continues that strong tradition of high-value streaming performance.

Take advantage of advanced video pre-processing features such as logo/bitmap overlay with transparency and positioning controls, de-interlacing, color space conversion and closed-caption extraction and rendering. The Osprey 260e automatically detects and adapts on-the-fly when the input video format changes from movie frame rates to television frame rates. We’ve also added a broadcaster-requested feature – loss of video detection – which automatically substitutes internally generated NTSC color bars (or other test display) with an optional customized text overlay.

Like all Osprey cards, the Osprey 260e supports global analog standard-definition (SD) formats, including NTSC and PAL. If you are a global OEM integrator seeking a single-solution deployment strategy, this card’s for you.
