  • Automatic signal detection in Windows

Loss of Signal Insertion


  • Choice of blue, black, or colorbars

  • Custom user text


VBI extraction

  • DirectShow-compatible VBI pins are provided on the Video Device Capture Filter. VBI data includes Vertical Interval Timecode (VITC) in both the NTSC and PAL worlds. In NTSC, line 21 Closed Captioning (although it is part of the video interval rather than true VBI data), is commonly treated as VBI data. In PAL, World Standard Teletext (WST) is encoded in the VBI data region.

  • The driver delivers VBI data as raw waveforms, which are then decoded by external DirectShow filters. DirectShow provides three filters under the classification “WDM Streaming VBI Codecs” that will decode data from VBI pins:


CC Decoder


WST Codec

CC Extraction

  • Both CEA-608 and CEA708 specifications are supported

  • Can be delivered as Line-21 Byte Pair or as Line-21 GOP Packet

  • CC data available through DirectShow VBI pin on Video Device Capture filter. (Both NTSC, PAL, and digital captions)

  • Decoded CC available through the DirectShow CC pin on the Video Device Capture Filter. (Only NTSC and digital captions)

  • CC data available through V4L2


Driver Video Processing

  • Scaling, Cropping, Frame, Rate Conversion

  • Color Space Conversion

  • Watermarking

  • WSS (Wide Screen Signaling Detection)

CC overlay

  • Captions can be rendered directly onto the capture or preview video

  • Caption field selection

  • Text Color Selection


Text overlay (only available through SDK)

  • Date and Time localization

  • Date

  • Custom placement of text


VBI extraction


  • VBI data available through DirectShow VBI pin on Video Device Capture filter.


Image Control (Procamp)

  • Brightness

  • Contrast

  • Saturation

  • Hue

  • Gamma

  • Sharpness


Video De-interlacing

  • Auto

  • Motion Adaptive

  • Inverse Telecine


SimulStream ready

  • Up to 5 capture streams for any one physical input channel. Independent cropping, aspect ratio, color format, resolution, frame rate, de-interlacing and color adjustment settings for each individual stream Enables multiple output streams without the need for additional physical input channels thus reducing hardware requirements.
