AV-PCL Time Code reader cards for the PCI bus are an important computer hardware solution for software development in fields such as subtitling, computer controlled editing, interactive-video, technical scientific analysis, and other applications that are based on picture accurate video processing.
Driver compatibility between analog, digital and HD “high definition”cards, enables you to design a software with any one of these cards and then if future requirements need a different video source, just change to a compatible Alpermann+Velte PCI card.
The card has its own processor system with a register set for data transfer. Thus the critical time routines are completely decoupled from the PC's CPU which enables extensive error checking. Cards have an automatic frame rate detection (24, 25, 30, 30 DF). The parallel operation of two or more PCL PCI-Cards is supported.
Drivers and example programs for Windows 98/ME/NT 4.0/2000/XP and Linux are included. DLL functions for reading Time Code and configuration are given. C/C++, Visual Basic and Delphi are also supported.
