The PIXCI® SV5B is a video-rate frame grabber that captures high quality, uncompressed, scientific quality digital images from standard analog output video sources. The PIXCI SV5B frame grabber digitizes analog video from NTSC, RS-170, PAL, or CCIR format sources such as cameras, camcorders, VCRs, and ultrasound imaging systems. Color (NTSC, PAL) and monochrome (RS-170, CCIR) video formats are supported. Capture images with 754 by 480 resolution from any NTSC, NTSC/S-Video, or RS-170 video source. Capture images with 922 by 580 resolution from any PAL, PAL/S-Video, or CCIR video source. Analog image data is digitized and transferred to motherboard memory with less than one horizontal line time delay. As a PCI bus DMA master, the PIXCI SV5B frame grabber burst transfers image data without using the host computer’s processor. Live video display is provided with software that transfers the image from motherboard memory to a graphics card or subsystem. Live, 30 frame per second (fps) display, is available when capturing from any NTSC, NTSC/S-Video, or RS-170 video source. Live, 25 fps display, is available when capturing from any PAL, PAL/S-Video, or CCIR video source.
ACQUISITION — Programmable gain, hue, brightness, saturation, and contrast adjustments allow optimized control of the input video signal. A unique digital genlock circuit ensures precise synchronization of every image. The PIXCI® SV5B can genlock to the video output of a VCR.
I/O CONTROL — Four TTL inputs and four TTL outputs are available for triggering image capture and controlling external devices. A TTL input signal from a part-in-place sensor can trigger image capture or trigger an image sequence capture. One of the TTL output signals can remove a part from an assembly line, or control extended integration of a camera.

The PIXCI® SV5B frame grabber is bundled with an imaging program that allows camera operation and frame grabber control without need to write software. Capture and save images after unpacking the board and loading the software. The XCAP-Lite imaging program, provided at no-charge with the PIXCI SV5 purchase, provides video format / mode selection, triggering, live display, and image / sequence capture to computer memory. Individual images can be saved in several industry-standard formats including TIF, BMP, and JPEG.
