Description

ImpactVCB is a low cost family of video capture boards which can be used as the heart of a live video display, real time video capture, streaming video or video conferencing solution.

The ImpactVCB board provides image capture from a desktop CCD camera or other analog input. Impact VCB board is a small 1/3 height PCI board based on the Conexant 878A video digitizer chip. It requires a bus-master PCI slot. A VGA card with Direct Draw 3 (or later) capability is required for Live Display. 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.

Highlights of the Hauppauge WinTv-Impact VCB

  • Video capture
  • Live video display
  • Video capture

    Video from any analog source (composite or S-Video) can be captured as either still frame video images or motion video. Composite video inputs are provided as female RCA jacks, while S-Video uses standard 4-pin DIN connectors. 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 card was supported by a very poor driver. However the workaround is to install the card, install the driver, go to sourceforge and get the open source driver for the chipset on the card and install it over the top of the supplied driver. This allows you to save the driver settings for the card and camera. Note that there is a hard coded timeout in MS XP that you have to wait for. Once it gives up trying, you can access the camera. It may be that Haupauge have released a later driver taht isn't broken but don't hold your breath.
