The cRTV series is a CompactPCI acquisition board is designed without compromise for security and video surveillance applications. It's the ideal device for PC-based multi-channel digital video recording. This 64-bit, 66 MHz CompactPCI (including 32-bit and 33 MHz) frame grabber can capture simultaneously four analog video streams in real time. It accepts standard composite colors (PAL, NTSC) or monochrome video formats (CCIR, EIA). The resolution is programmable including square-pixel (640 x 480 or 768 x 576) and broadcast resolution. Before captured images are transferred to the PC's memory, images can be scaled down using available selectable ratios. Arbitrary cropping to regions of interest are possible. The RTV series generates bitmaps in all popular color formats such as RGB, YUV, planar or packed. System integrators also benefit from a watchdog for fault-tolerant applications and easy-to-use standard connectors.
