HQ software codec offers real-time capture of HD video, as well as the ability to record high quality images off a PC screen
The Grass Valley HQ software codec only recently became available on a silicon chip, enabling 1920 x 1080/60i and 1280 x 720/60p capture to be performed in real time. For editors, it can also natively display signals on a PC at up to 1280 x 1024/60p without downconverting the image and capture video from HDMI, DVI, S-video, and component sources.
The Pegasus card is priced at $999 and comes complete with image-capture software and a Software Developer’s Kit (SDK) for system integrators.
Grass Valley is now bundling the Pegasus card with the Canopus ProCoder 3 compression software package for $1,199 (a $300 savings).
