The LT-122 is a dual channel 3G/HD/SD-SDI video capture board that has the capacity to compress two HDTV video signals in real-time without using the host computer’s CPU resources. The product is installed in an available PCI Express slot on your host system.

This board captures video from SMPTE compliant SDI video sources via two industry standard BNC connectors. The LT-122 can extract multichannel embedded audio from the SDI stream. For external analog audio capture a stereo jack is provided. The audio and video are always synchronized, in hardware, for lypsync.

The LT-122 compresses video in compliance with the H.264 and VC-1 standard. VC-1 is an SMPTE standard that is popularly known as WMV (Windows Media). Both these advanced compression formats are widely used in media, medical, streaming, broadcasting, etc., applications. Used in 3D mode, the LT-122 can capture, synchronize and mix 3D video from 3D SDI-sources.

This powerful board can compress D1 to 1920×1080 (1080p/i) resolution signals at up to 60 frames per second (fps). If resolutions smaller than the source are required, the LT-122 can downscale the source to any size. The frame rate can also be reduced to any arbitrary value.

Compressed bitrates can vary between 64Kbit/s and 80Mbit/s depending on resolution, frame rate and quality desired. An uncompressed video capture function is also available for snapshots or continuous raw video acquisition from either or both channels.

Diagram

he LT-122 board has a very flexible front end and is capable of accepting a wide range of video signal thanks to the implemented Gennum GS2971 3Gb/s, HD, SD SD Receiver chip. The GS2971 supports SMPTE 425M (Level A and Level B), SMPTE 424M, SMPTE 292M, SMPTE 259M-C and DVB-ASI.

In addition to this inputs, there is an build-in 3G-SDI loop-throug output for each one of the input channels.
