Epiphan Systems™ DVI2PCIe™ is an internal frame grabber with a single-link DVI/VGA input for capturing video from DVI, VGA, and HDMI sources. DVI2PCIe also supports DisplayPort, Mini DisplayPort, and Thunderbolt video sources using a converter cable, sold separately. Resolutions up to 2048x2048 are supported, with a minimum capture rate of 60 frames per second at 1080p.

DVI2PCIe works with Windows, Mac OS, and Linux machines. Drivers and software are available as free downloads. DVI2PCIe is fully compatible with DirectShow in Windows, Video4Linux in Linux, and QuickTime in Mac OS, meaning that it can be used in conjunction with any third party software that allows the use of an external camera as a video input, such as Skype or Adobe Premiere.

DVI2PCIe fits into a ×4, ×8 or ×16 PCIe 1.x slot and incorporates the same capture technologies and common software as the acclaimed DVI2USB 3.0 and VGA2Ethernet external frame grabbers. Furthermore, on-board buffer RAM ensures not a single frame is skipped. For those applications that require a smaller PCIe ×1 form factor, with slightly less performance, please contact us for special orders of DVI2PCIe in a ×1 form factor.

DVI2PCIe Optional A/V Kit
The DVI2PCIe A/V kit adds even more functionality to the DVI2PCIe. It consists of two add-on boards that allow the user to add S-Video, 3.5mm stereo or balanced ¼ inch TRS line-in inputs to their existing DVI2PCIe cards.
