Overview

Small Size, Low Power Consumption and Low Latency

Eco Capture M.2 cards offer systems integrators and OEM developers high-performance video capture solutions with low power consumption in a very compact form factor. The cards measure only 22x80mm (0.87x3.15in), making them perfect for use in small or portable systems where full-sized PCIe slots are not available.

 

Superb OS and API Compatibility

M.2 Eco Capture models are available with drivers for Windows and Linux operating systems, and support x86, x64 & ARM architectures. The devices support OS-native capture APIs, while our SDK provides custom Magewell APIs that enable developers to achieve lower-latency capture and synchronize channels across multi-channel or even multiple capture cards.

 

Flexible Input Interfaces

Eco Capture cards can capture up to four HD signals or one 4Kp60 signal, supporting HDMI, 3G-SDI, quad-link 3G-SDI and single-link 12G-SDI input. All models support up to eight channels of embedded audio per input.

 

Lower CPU Usage

All Pro Capture models feature Magewell’s FPGA-based, zero-CPU-usage video processing, providing high-quality up/down conversion and image adjustments without consuming valuable host system processing power.
