4-channel multistandard frame grabber - mvSIGMA-SQ

mvSIGMA-SQ - 4 channel multistandard frame grabber
  • 4 channel multistandard frame grabber
  • 16 CVBS/gray inputs
  • 16 digital-In, 8 digital-Out
  • Standard PCI
  • Ideal solution for multi channel acquisition or split screen display in surveillance applications

The mvSIGMA-SQ is a four channel frame grabber for standard color or gray scale video signals. The 16 video inputs can be switched independently to each of the four channels. This makes it a product optimally suited for surveillance applications, either for live display of multiple inputs in parallel or by its ability to capture up to four video signals at the same time. The digital I/Os match the need to connect alarm input and output devices to the system. The optional watchdog ensures the reliabilty of the application by the ability to restart a system.

Drivers and applications for Windows 7, 8.1 (mvIMPACT Acquire)

Since version 2.10.1 of mvIMPACT Acquire the "Merge Modules for mvIMPACT Acquire" are available as a separate download.
For this reason the installation packages are smaller now. The Merge Modules are needed for private setup routines, which shall include mvIMPACT Acquire drivers. More details are available in the mvIMPACT Acquire manuals.
