Osprey® by Variosystems will be ushering in the first quarter of 2015 with four new additions to its award-winning line of Osprey video capture cards. On January 15, the company will introduce the Osprey 815e single channel HD/SDI card as well as the dual-channel HDMI card the Osprey 821e. The Osprey 811e HDMI single channel card, also designed for superior performance, will become available on February 15 while the Osprey 827e high definition card, designed to ingest an expansive array of digital and analog signals, will be introduced on March 15.

“We're committed to continuing Osprey's reputation for legendary quality and performance,” said Roger Bieri, General Manager of Osprey by Variosystems. “And the new offerings have something for every online video and broadcast need. Whether they're offering maximum flexibility or providing a simple single HDMI input solution, all of these new cards feature PCI Express® (PCIe) bus architecture so video throughput will be just what you'd expect from an Osprey card.”

Osprey 827e - Optimized for Flexibility and Performance
Available in March, the Osprey 827e capture card features both a 3G HD-SDI input, ingesting up to true 3G input (SMPTE 424), and an integrated digital video interface (DVI-I) channel for ingesting standard definition or high definition analog video as well as VGA and HDMI. The card also includes embedded SDI audio, digital stereo audio inputs as well as balanced and unbalanced analog stereo audio inputs. Osprey 827e comes standard with Osprey by Variosystems' SimulStream® technology, further enhancing its flexibility and making it ideal for a wide range of applications in broadcasting, enterprise, education, government and global OEM systems integration.

Osprey 815 - Enhanced Adaptability for Digital Video Users
Scheduled for release in January, Osprey 815e continues to offer users a level of application resilience you’d expect from Osprey cards, automatically detecting and adjusting to HD-SDI, HD-SDI and DVB-ASI signals. The low-profile card is suitable for small form factor computers and servers, and includes an SDI loop-out to facilitate workflow.

Osprey 811e and Osprey 821e - Augmented Power in HDMI Prosumer Series Cards
Developed for buyers who want video cards well above consumer grade but without professional-level pricing, these two first editions to the Osprey Prosumer card series will be a launching point to many new products targeted to prosumers. Both dedicated HDMI cards, the Osprey 811e is a low-profile, single channel card that will be available in February while the Osprey 821e is a dual channel card that will be introduced in January.
