Matrox® Clarity UHD is a comprehensive video capture card supporting the full range of video formats from standard definition (SD) to high definition (HD) all the way to ultra-high definition (UHD). Mini DisplayPort™, HD-BNC, HDMI™, and custom analog DVI1 connectivity are provided to hook up to and switch between the different types of legacy and advanced video sources used in medical, surveillance, and simulation-training applications. System setup and management are further simplified with the board’s automatic video source presence and format detection. Matrox Clarity UHD can simultaneously acquire multiple streams—such as eight HD (1080p60) or two 4K UHD (2160p60) video streams—and reliably transfer these off-board using its efficient PCIe® 2.0 x8 host interface.
