This is a real time video digitiser card intended to use with IBM compatible personal computers (PC) with VGA or higher video-monitor. The card can be plugged into any expansion slot within the computer. The digitiser converts video signals supplied by a TV set, a camcorder, a video recorder, or a video camera into digital data that can be processed by the PC. The video signals (PAL compatible) are converted into 512 x 512 pixels and 256 grey levels ; still RGB signals (colour) are converted into 16.7 million colours. The digital image is converted into a TIFF (Tagged Image File Format) or BMP (Bitmap) file that can be processed further by almost any graphics program that runs under MS-DOS or Windows. High quality pictures are achieved by using rather high (10MHz) sampling rate and using a built-in phase locked loop.
