PCI Express Frame Grabber with S-Video and Two CVBS Inputs

(PresseBox) (Obersulm, ) With the FALCON Express frame grabber, IDS Imaging Development Systems has rounded off its FALCON range by a board with PCIe interface as well as one S-Video and two CVBS inputs. The new frame grabber supports all color and monochrome cameras that work with standard video signals (PAL, NTSC or SECAM). Two variants are available: for standard PCI Express slots and low-profile slots.

The new model is 100% software compatible with all frame grabbers of the FALCON series. Users can thus switch to a different model anytime without having to adjust the existing application. The driver supports multi-board use and the simultaneous use of PCI and PCI Express boards. A programmable EEPROM is provided for storing the user's own data and can also be used as a dongle.

The Falcon Express board ships with a software development kit (SDK) for all the current Windows operating systems, including Vista, as well as Linux. The SDK comprises not only various demo programs together with the C/C++ source code, but also demos in Visual Basic and Delphi. To allow quick implementation, developers can integrate these demos in their own applications and customize them as required.

A native DirectShow (WDM) driver, an ActiveX component and a TWAIN interface are also available for the users of standard software solutions. In addition external video codecs can be integrated, which allows recording video sequences on hard disk in different formats (e.g. MPEG4).
