The capture cards when connected to a compatible camera are known for converting an analog signal into a digitized format. HDMI, USB, S-Video, or other analog inputs stores the analog data using different compression techniques such as MPEG1, MPEG2 or MPEG4. The latest developed cards such as the 4K, HD and SD, can record videos in 1080p full HD formats.
The trending applications of video capture cards:
- Video on Demand (VoD):
The distant learning software applications have helped the educators to connect with remotely located students with the help of live video streaming. A capture card is an ideal option that allows the real-time composition of data sourced from a point A to point B, typically a live instruction session with a PowerPoint presentation.
An ultrasound scanner is yet another wide-spread application of VoD as it serves most of the specialty diagnostic procedures. It serves most of the imagine purposes and has improved the diagnostic confidence and accuracy among hospitals.
- SD Video Capture:
Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) provides a real-time update on traffic conditions and video surveillance systems have emerged as the backbone in scrutinizing and strategizing evacuation in emergency conditions across public places.
Automotive video surveillance is now widely incorporated in public transport systems such as buses, trains, and airplanes to monitor and detect any criminal or patrol activities.
The automated teller machine (ATM) as we all know is a safe store to secure the public’s money. But however, there are some major incidences of robbery, unauthorized withdrawal and other fraudulent activities at ATMs and banks. Therefore, video monitoring is a helping smoothing out any security threats and video capture cards are gaining prominence in banking security systems.
These are few of the well-known applications of video capture cards and the key manufacturers are making major developments to improve the quality of the video being captured.
