FlashPoint Frame Grabber




The FlashPoint 3D Lite is the sister high-performance, low-cost frame grabber to the FlashPoint 3D Plus and FlashPoint 3D Pro. The aggressive price point of this board makes it attractive to practically all cost-critical applications.

The FlashPoint 3D Lite incorporates an on-board 3D accelerator and 8 MB of fast SGRAM. Its 128-bit memory interface is capable of running at speeds up to 125 MHz, allowing for display resolutions up to 1600 x 1200 at 85 Hz.

FlashPoint 3D Lite supports nondestructive overlay of text and graphics on live video. This enables applications that require crosshairs, selector boxes, or other objects to be displayed on live video while the underlying video is cleanly captured or displayed. Its independent control of the graphics and video color depth allows efficient memory usage that supports the simultaneous display and capture of high-resolution video (up to 768 x 576) on a high-resolution desktop (up to 1280 x 1024).

FlashPoint 3D Lite supports acquisition from up to 3 composite/RS-170 inputs and 1 S-Video input in both NTSC and PAL formats, and will support the capture of non-interlaced video from progressive scan cameras. Video is displayed full-screen or in a resizable window, and can be adjusted (offset and gain) to the desired levels through software controlled video amplifiers. Very low pixel jitter ensures accurate representation of horizontal detail.

FlashPoint 3D Lite allows for simultaneous display of CRT and TV display by incorporating an integrated video encoder. Both a composite and S-Video output is provided in NTSC and PAL formats. Flicker reduction is possible with a programmable flicker filter.

A comprehensive optional Software Developers Kit provides programmable access to the features of the board's hardware architecture. The kit includes DLLs for Microsoft® Windows 95/98/ME/2000™ and Windows NT 4.0;, MS-DOS; Visual Basic Support, MCI, Video-for-Window (AVI) & TWAIN drivers, and sample applications with source code.
