The Osprey VB-USL USB Video Bridge connects directly to your computer's USB 3.0 port, enabling you to capture uncompressed video and embedded audio from an SDI source. This capture device is plug-and-play, with no driver installation required. It features a 3G-SDI BNC input and a Micro-B USB 3.0 output. In addition to its USB 3.0 interface, the VB-USL has a BNC port for looping out the 3G-SDI signal. The VB-USL USB Video Bridge supports video resolutions up to 1080p60 and has two control modes.
The USB Video Bridge capture device series includes 3G-SDI and HDMI models providing wide-ranging adaptability for complex workflows. Connecting directly to your computer’s USB 3.0 port, the Video Bridge is true plug-and-play, requiring no drivers in Windows, Linux, or Mac OS X.
Two control scenarios support varying user requirements. Software control mode passes all available rates and resolutions to the capture software. Manual mode allows the pre-selection of a frame rate and resolution, allowing the user to control the load delivered to the USB bus.
On the SDI Devices a “Follow Input” selection passes the input 1 to 1 to the host PC. For confidence monitoring, the input and output resolutions, and frame rates are displayed on the unit’s LCD screen.
In Software mode, all available frame rates and resolutions are passed to the capture software. For greater user control, the frame rate and resolution can be pre-selected in Manual mode. Compact in size and powered directly via USB, the VB-USL USB Video Bridge is compatible with Windows, Mac OSX, and Linux operating systems, and is UVC-compliant.
