  • RGB/VGA to USB 2.0 capture card with interlaced image output

  • Outputs 3-28 FPS - interlaced

VGA2USB is Epiphan's lowest-priced frame grabber and is intended for those that need to capture video from VGA sources at resolutions up to 1920×1200 at low frame rates.

VGA2USB is invaluable in the preparation of documentation, capturing of presentations and PowerPoint slides, analyzing monitor-less systems, and performing quality control on tested systems.

As a compact external device, VGA2USB is easy to use. About the size of a box of paperclips, it is easily plugged in and requires no additional power, sending a digitized video signal from VGA to USB. The frame rate is dependent on content being captured - content with lots of movement at higher resolutions will have lower frame rates. In the majority of applications, VGA2USB captures video at 10 FPS.

It is a fully-featured VGA/RGB capture card complete with hardware, USB cable and soft­ware that makes it possible to capture video from any screen, view captured data in real time, save captured video and images to disk, copy captured images to a clipboard, or setup a periodical "save" command to capture images to disk. Furthermore, VGA2USB is compatible with virtually all 3rd party software that supports an external video device or webcam, including Skype, Windows Media Encoder, and others.
