ICON Loading...

188 ImpactVCB Video Capturing Device provides image capture from a desk top CCD camera or other analog input. ImpactVCB Video Capturing Device is a small 1/3 height PCI board based on the Conexant 878A video digitizer chip. Incoming image is digitized using high quality 4:2:2 video sampling and displayed in a window on the PC's VGA screen. The image is transmitted directly by the ImpactVCB into main system memory or the memory of the VGA adapter for high performance results.

Features
Video Capture
Video from any analog source can be captured as either still frame video images or motion video. The ImpactVCB comes with a VFW capture driver (Video for Windows)for Windows 95 and Windows NT, and a WDM driver for use with WindowsXP, Windows98SE, Windows Me and Windows 2000. Typical capture rates range from 15 to 30 fps depending on system configuration.

Live Video Display
The ImpactVCB can display live video from NTSC or PAL video sources in a resizable window on the PC screen. The digitizing of the analog video signal and the resizing of the video image is performed by hardware on the ImpactVCB, thereby not slowing down the CPU. After video is digitized and resized, the digitized video image is drawn by the ImpactVCB directly into the memory of the PC's VGA card. This uses a feature of Windows called Direct Draw, and the ImpactVCB can be used with most VGA cards which support Direct Draw 5 or higher. This technique is used on Windows95, Windows98, WindowsME, Windows2000 and WindowsNT 4.0

Serialization
Some ImpactVCB models have a unique serial number burnt into an EProm on board. The serial number is read either through the Hauppauge WinTV Programmers Toolkit or can be read via Windows Control Panel. In addition to the serial number, these models of ImpactVCB have its I/O configuration burnt into the EProm.

The ImpactVCB capture board is designed for all PCs running WindowsXP, WindowsME, Windows2000, Windows 95, Windows98, and Windows NT 4.0 with Service Pack 3 installed. A public domain Linux driver is also available for the ImpactVCB.

The ImpactVCB requires a bus-mastering PCI bus slot.

Some common adapters are: S3 Trio64+, Trio 32/64, Vision 968 and ViRGE Cirrus Logic 5446, Matrox Millenium and Mystique, ATI Mach 64 and Rage series of graphics display adapters, Hercules Dynamite 128 (and other ET 6000 based VGA cards) work well.

The ImpactVCB board also requires 2MB of free hard disk space, and 4 MB of RAM (Windows NT 4.0, Windows2000 or WindowsXP).

Hardware required for videoconferencing:

In addition to the ImpactVCB, a video camera, NTSC or PAL (power is available from the board or optional AC power adapter), is required. A 16 bit, 8 KHZ full duplex codec sound card is required for digitizing the audio. A microphone and speakers are also required.

3 out of 5 eggsDecent to view one input at a time

Pros: Priced to move and it has fairly good resolution.

Cons: Mounts on Linux as one device and each input is a separate input. This means you can not access two cameras at once. I also could not get it to work with ZoneMinder, but that could be user error.

Other Thoughts: If you just need to access one camera at a time, this is great. If you need more than one you will need to look elsewhere.
