video capture with PCI card in jitter, anyone?

i’m looking at various ways of bringing in high rate high rez video into jitter, among them camera’s with analog video, digital over USB2 and CAMLINK. has anyone any experience with a good PCI based video card that 1) does the capture and 2) lets jitter get at the video?

many thanks,

Can you specify how high the rez should be? I get fine results via

Hey Ali,

We have an AlchemyTV card that seems to work. Just remember it isn’t
compatible with PCIe G4 and G5s.

i recently used a kona card for analog input from a hdv camera, and
that worked super.

dunno if osprey cards play nice with max, but those are great too.
