The Osprey 260e is a single-channel analog capture card offering Composite BNC, Component 3-BNC, and S-Video mini-DIN selectable inputs, along with balanced XLR or unbalanced RCA stereo audio, all via a breakout cable. The S-Video input comes on BNC connectors and is converted via an included BNC to mini-DIN adapter. Two or more cards can be deployed in a single PC chassis for maximum versatility.


This 260e card comes with Osprey's SimulStream driver enhancement software, which allows each input to produce multiple parallel output streams with completely independent settings for color space, cropping, scaling, closed caption, and overlays, allowing for simultaneous delivery to multiple applications.
