Sensoray, a leading input device manufacturer, announced a new addition to their video capture products, the 2250. The video capture box, which looks a little like a stereo car amplifier, accepts NTSC or PAL analog video source (composite or S-video) and converts it into one of supported MPEG streams along with the optional audio (line or microphone). Capture in JPEG format is supported as well. A USB interface allows video capture at full resolution and frame rate. Flexible resolution and bitrate selections provide the optimal balance between quality and storage requirements for a wide range of applications.
The 2250 can capture and encode into MPEG 1/2/4 and JPEG from an analog video sorce at D1 resolution. At 30 Frames Per Second on NTSC and 25 Frames Per Second for PAL you will expect the best. Some other great features include text overlay (OSD), power via USB and Software Developers Kit for custom integration. All based off Linux software. The bare-bones board is $217USD and the 2250 with enclosure (as shown) runs just over $280.
