Nexeon HD Xtra Description

PCI Express Support

Nexeon HD Xtra is designed with the high-speed PCI Express system interface. PCI Express is the high-performance, next-generation interconnect that increases bandwidth,
scalability, and reliability.

Bus-Mastering Performance

Nexeon HD Xtra’s high speed bus-mastering capability with scatter gather support delivers realtime video data to system or display memory simultaneously, without intervention from the host CPU. Video data formatting and resolution is independent between streams, allowing for maximum bandwidth flexibility.

Digital Video Processor

By incorporating a TI DM642 video processor, Nexeon HD Xtra enables maximum flexibility in handling challenging application requirements. Equipped with a 64 MB SDRAM frame buffer, the video processor provides video scaling, pixel formatting, interrupt support, hardware overlay, and real-time video processing without host CPU assistance.

3G-SDI Serial Digital Interface

Nexeon HD Xtra supports viewing and capture of the enhanced video quality from SDI sources. SDI is a broadcast quality video transmission standard that allows for the transmission of un-compressed digital video data on a common coax cable at distances up to 300 feet. Nexeon HD Xtra supports the new 3G-SDI standard, allowing digital video data rates up to 2.97 Gb/sec.

High-Definition Capture

Nexeon HD Xtra supports capture and steaming of high-definition video and display. Nexeon HD Xtra supports VGA display resolutions up to 1280×1024 at 75 Hz, as well as HDTV inputs up to 1080p. With acquisition rates up to 150 MHz, Nexeon HD Xtra is one of the most versatile frame grabbers on the market.
