Founded in 2011, Magewell focuses on the core technology of audio and video processing. With guiding principles of continuous innovation and providing customers with outstanding technical support, Magewell has earned a strong reputation for the exceptional quality, performance and reliability of its capture devices. Distributed globally, Magewell products are used in a wide array of professional video and audio applications including broadcast, live event streaming, medical imaging, lecture capture, surveillance, machine vision, gaming and more.
Designed for broadcast and professional A/V applications, Magewell’s Pro Capture cards can capture 1080p Full HD video at 60 frames per second with minimal latency. The Pro Capture family’s hardware-based video processing delivers high-quality deinterlacing, up/down conversion, video enhancements, color space conversion and more without requiring CPU usage, thereby maximizing CPU availability for third-party software such as Wirecast.
The comprehensive Magewell Pro Capture SDK enables developers to easily create custom software applications and turnkey solutions leveraging the full feature set and unique capabilities of the Magewell cards.
The same video source can be output in different data rates to any number of multiple clients. The resolution, frame rate, deinterlacing, cropping, OSD etc. of each stream can be different.
Super-low Latency Data Transfer
Support to transfer data in block. It will reduce the time for capturing data. Support AMD Acceleration Parallel Processing(APP) and NVIDIA GPUDirect technology. Video data can be directly transferred to graphics memory.
Support A/V frames synchronization which can be captured from multiple capture devices in one computer or in multiple computers.
Use Hardware to Do Image OSD
Support OSD of RGBA text or picture in real time by hardware and CPU usage is greatly reduced. Multiple captured videos can be overlapped to achieve PIP(Picture-in-Picture) and PAP (Picture-And-Picture).
Support Output of More Color Spaces
Up to 34 color spaces can be supported, which includes 10 bit format such as AYUV, V408,Y410, V410, Y410, RGB10 and BGR10.
Pro Capture 4K Family
Magewell’s real-time, 4K video capture cards cost-effectively bring 4K-resolution video acquisition to markets and applications including broadcast, surveillance, medical imaging, gaming, video wall design, motion picture production and more.
The Pro Capture AIO 4K Plus features both HDMI and SDI inputs with embedded audio support, capturing 2160p60 Ultra HD video over its HDMI 2.0 interface and 2160p30 via 6Gbps SDI. The two newest cards deliver similar capabilities for HDMI-only input applications.
The Pro Capture HDMI 4K supports 2160p30 over an HDMI 1.4 interface, while the Pro Capture HDMI 4K Plus captures 2160p60 via HDMI 2.0 connectivity. Continuing Magewell’s hallmarks of outstanding video capture quality, performance and reliability, all three cards feature a PCIe 2.0 high-speed interface and support resolutions all the way up to the 4096×2160 4K digital cinema and production standard, including 3840×2160 4K Ultra HD.
As with all Magewell Pro Capture cards, each video source can be output as multiple streams to separate applications simultaneously, enabling concurrent live broadcast, recording and preview. Resolution, frame rate and video processing can be controlled independently for each stream. Built-in, hardware-based, 10-bit video processing delivers high-quality deinterlacing, up/down conversion, video enhancements, color space conversion, graphic overlay and more without requiring CPU usage, thus maximizing CPU availability for third-party software – particularly beneficial because of the quadrupled processing requirements of 4K video compared to HD formats. The cards also feature advanced bit depth (8/10/12 bit) and color space (4:2:0/4:2:2/4:4:4) capabilities, supporting 4K Ultra HD standards. Multiple 4K Pro Capture cards can be used simultaneously in the same system, increasing multi-channel capture density. Magewell’s universal Pro Capture drivers offer broad 4K capture compatibility with popular encoding, streaming, live production, collaboration, video conferencing and virtual reality (VR) creation software running on Windows and Linux operating systems, with Mac support for the 4K cards to follow soon.
Easy to Use
