With the capability to simultaneously capture four independent channels of audio and video, the Osprey®-440 PCI-X™ capture card is a good choice for broadcasters and government agencies. The benefits of higher channel density include efficiencies and cost savings achieved through reduced space requirements and being able to encode multiple channels on one encoding system instead of four. And, as with all Osprey capture cards, quality and reliability come standard.

 

 

The Osprey-440 maximizes the effectiveness and management of your streaming operation through its Designed for Live features, such as Logo Bitmap Overlay (graphics over the video) with transparency and positioning controls. The Osprey-440 automatically detects and adapts on-the-fly when the input video format changes from movie frame rates to TV frame rates.

Capture Multiple Channels and Multiply your Savings

The Osprey-440 is the ideal analog card for:

  • Broadcasters used in broadcast and advertising monitoring applications, due to density requirements
  • Government used for traffic and surveillance cameras due to density requirements, as well as mobile encoding due to low CPU requirements, enabling many simultaneous channels

Optimized for Live Streaming

The Osprey-440 maximizes the effectiveness and management of your streaming operation through its Designed for Live features, such as Logo Bitmap Overlay (graphics over the video) with transparency and positioning controls. The Osprey-440 automatically detects and adapts on-the-fly when the input video format changes from movie frame rates to TV frame rates.

 

Multiple Streams per Input

Purchase the Osprey-440 with SimulStream® and you can use any or all of the four available inputs to feed multiple encoders at the same time. Use it with ViewCast Niagara SCX® to easily create and manage live streams in RealVideo®, Windows Media®, Flash® Video and MPEG-4 at the same time, in any combination. Or create multiple streams of the same type from each input, independently, with completely independent settings for sizing, scaling, logos, and bit rate.

 

Global standards support

Like all Osprey cards, the Osprey-440 supports global analog standard-definition formats, including NTSC, PAL, and most others used throughout the world. If you are a global OEM integrator seeking a single-solution deployment strategy, this card's for you.

 

Additional inputs and outputs for OEM applications

OEM product developers can take advantage of additional composite video, S-Video, and balanced audio inputs which are available on internal connections on the Osprey-440 circuit board. Security / Surveillance OEMs can also access internal contact closure inputs and alarm relay outputs for custom applications. And there is a versatile Osprey SDK available for custom software application developers.

 

Compatible with Popular Application Software

The Osprey-440 works with popular video capture and encoding applications, including our own Niagara SCX multi-codec streaming manager. Some of those other cards lock you into a select few applications.

 

Industry-proven performance

Over 300,000 Osprey cards are in daily worldwide operation in a wide variety of commercial, industrial, and broadcast applications. You'll find Osprey capture cards in mission-critical applications throughout the world.

 

Rock-solid stability

Legendary Osprey reliability means you can count on rock-solid performance, day in and day out.

Telestream NASCAR Project Wins IBC2012 Innovation Awards

Nevada City and San Jose, California, September 10, 2012 - Telestream®, a leading provider of video transcoding and workflow solutions, and Quantum, a global expert in data protection and big data management, today announced that the NASCAR video capture and replay project incorporating technology from both companies won the prestigious IBC2012 Innovation Award in the Content Management category. Telestream developed the video capture and replay system for NASCAR’s high-speed sports officiating. The award recognized NASCAR and its project partners, including Quantum for its StorNext data management software and CineSys for its disk storage.


“It is an honor for the NASCAR project to be recognized by the IBC,” said Barbara DeHart, vice president of marketing at Telestream. “The new race control system would not have been possible without the collective efforts of NASCARProductions, along with the Telestream, Quantum and CineSys teams. Together, we were able to bring high-quality capture and replay into the race-day operations of one of the most exciting sports around.”

In the fast-paced world of NASCAR racing, where broadcasts reach more than 150 countries, video also plays a key role in controlling NASCAR races. The new race control system is based on Telestream’s Pipeline HD hardware encoder and a new, high-performance, multi-clip Pipeline Replay application.  The scalable, file-based system provides instant capture and synchronous display of 18 high definition (HD) camera feeds, enabling instant access, search, and analysis of an entire race event.

“The instant replay system that Telestream has provided NASCAR this season has enabled our officials to perform their jobs in an even more efficient and time-sensitive manner,” said Robin Pemberton, NASCAR Vice President of Competition. “Having instant access to that many camera angles featuring such high-quality video has been a terrific addition to our race weekends.”

The race control system utilizes high-speed StorNext File System software from Quantum to provide simultaneous access of video content, including the ability to rewind and read while continuing to write from 18 HD cameras. CineSys provided on-site infrastructure, architecture, installation, and technical assistance.

”We are pleased to have been selected by Telestream to participate in this important project, and it is especially gratifying to be recognized in this prestigious award. StorNext’s robust file sharing software is fine-tuned to address the high-performance streaming needs that accompany higher resolution video. Because of our collaboration, these combined technologies are greatly improving the accuracy of race monitoring and enhancing the experience for millions of NASCAR fans,” said Janae Stow Lee, senior vice president, File System and Archive Product Group at Quantum.

The award was presented at the IBC2012 Awards Ceremony on Sunday evening, September 9 at the RAI in Amsterdam. IBC is the premier annual event for professionals engaged in the creation, management and delivery of entertainment and news content worldwide. The Innovation Awards recognize collaboration and those who push the boundaries. Telestream is exhibiting at IBC in stand 7.D16, and Quantum is exhibiting in stand 7.G30.
