The latest USB frame grabber from Sensoray (Tigard, Ore.), Model 2255, successfully fills the industry need for a multichannel, low-latency, USB video capture device. Boasting an impressive total capture rate of 60 frames per second, the 2255 allows for simultaneous video capture of up to four composite NTSC or PAL video sources at 15 fps or 2 channels at a full 30 fps. Full frame rate capture is possible across all channels simultaneously using monochrome or scaled down modes. A variety of output formats supported by the 2255 eliminates the need for format conversions in a wide range of applications. Supported formats include: RGB packed (24 bits/pixel, bitmap compatible), YCrCb packed (16 bits/pixel, YUY2 compatible), YCrCb planar (16 bits/pixel, optimal for image processing), Y8 (8 bits/pixel, monochrome). The 2255 is powered through the USB 2.0 connection on a PC eliminating the need for an external power supply. The supplied software development kit contains the drivers for Linux and Windows, the API, and a demo program that illustrates the use of the API. The driver supports multiple units allowing for easysystem expansion and integration. www.sensoray.com
