Thursday, May 1st, 2014

For years, video capture, at least for media monitoring companies, was dependent on Osprey capture cards. air max 1 femme They are the best there are in the field, and once you try it, you don’t look for anything else anywhere else. sac kanken pas cher You just pay the price and are satisfied with it. The card has excellent drivers with tons of options, SimulStream as an (paying) option, … real real beauty.

YES! 6 channels for 320 Euro ($400 USD). Nike Air Max 2017 Heren blauw I won’t calculate per channel price here, since it is already obvious that Osprey is beaten, at least as price is concerned.

In fact, lets see, on a setup of say 24 channels, how much do you save using new cards:

VCAE: 4 cards, $1600

So only on capture hardware, you could save $5600. Add to that lower cost of hardware (servers) since you can pack everything in lesser amount of PCs.

So, to follow up on the excitement of finding that this card exists, I immediately ordered a sample to try it with our capture software. It came in few days, and we went on and installed it…

And the story has to end here, since card works as it should out of the box, enabling media monitoring installations to be even cheaper now.
