video capture with PCI card in jitter, anyone?

May 10 2006 | 11:54 pm

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.
