Magewell To Introduce New Versions Of The Eco Capture Products At NAB, New York

At NAB, Magewell Electronics will debut the Dual HDMI M.2 and Eco Capture HDMI 4K M.2, which make it easier to incorporate HDMI video capture in space-limited form factors.

Magewell said the new products are designed for integrators and OEM partners. While the initial models used a breakout cable connected perpendicularly to the M.2 card to provide externally-accessible HDMI ports, the new alternatives employ a flatter ribbon cable and daughtercard combination that requires less space.

The Eco Capture cards themselves continue to measure 22x80mm (0.87x3.15in), matching the M.2 2280 size specification. The Eco Capture HDMI 4K M.2 captures one channel of 4K video up to 4096x2160 at 30 frames per second, while the dual-channel Eco Capture Dual HDMI M.2 can capture two HD or 2K video signals up to 1080p60 simultaneously.

Magewell is also adding an eighth model to its Pro Convert portfolio of video-over-IP encoder and decoder line. The low-latency Pro Convert for NDI to HDMI decoder transforms a live NDI stream into an HDMI output for connection to a monitor, projector or other baseband device.
