The PixeLINK™ PL-A544 is designed to capture and convert NTSC/PAL
video streams into digital images, with full software control of the video
input. The PL-A544 Series uses the FireWire (IEEE 1394) digital bus protocol
to streamline the capture, digitization and conversion of analog video
from a variety of NTSC/PAL sources, including industrial video cameras,
camcorders and medical video devices. One FireWire cable supplies power,
PC control and real-time video streaming capabilities to an attached camera,
dramatically simplifying the installation process. The PL-A544 provides
an uncompressed data stream, resulting in the highest possible image quality.
The PL-A544 Developer's Kit offers an extensive Application Program Interface (API). This API is designed to simplify the most common tasks associated with configuring, controlling and selecting the module's two NTSC/PAL video inputs. Windows applications can also leverage the advanced command and control capabilities to enable direct communication with the attached imaging device via RS-232 connectors.
Applications: Microscopy, Medical and biometric imaging, Video conferencing systems, Surveillance and security cameras, Webcasting systems, and Photo ID systems just to name a few.
The PL-A544 is compatible with Windows® 98SE, Windows® 2000, Windows® Me and Mac OS 9.
