The ImpactVCB board provides image capture from a desk top CCD camera or other analog input. Impact VCB board is a small 1/3 height PCI board based on the Conexant 878A video digitizer chip. It requires a bus-master PCI slot. A VGA card with Direct Draw 3 (or later) capability is required for live display. Drivers are provided with the ImpactVCB board. Incoming image is digitized using high quality 4:2:2 video sampling and displayed in a window on the PC's VGA screen. The image is transmitted directly by the ImpactVCB into main system memory or the memory of the VGA adapter for high performance results. The ImpactVCB comes in several different I/O configurations, with up to four composite video inputs, s-video input, power output (primarily to drive a CCD camera).
