Technology Guides

Portable and reliable SDI capture accessory

Bring Epiphan AV.io SDI™ with you to capture 3G-SDI, HD-SDI or SD-SDI video and share using any computer with a USB port.

Full HD video grabber at 60 fps

AV.io SDI supports resolutions up to 1080p and transfers uncompressed video to your computer at 60 fps with near-zero latency, letting you capture even the tiniest details with perfect clarity.

Captures high quality audio

AV.io SDI has automatic audio resampling. For situations with surround sound or multi-lingual audio, you can choose which audio pair to capture.

No driver installation required

AV.io SDI is the easiest SDI capture card you’ll ever use. It doesn’t need any special drivers installed on your computer – plug it in to your USB port and start using it right away. It’s as simple as using a webcam! Windows, Mac and Linux operating systems automatically detect AV.io SDI ensuring compatibility with your favorite software.

Application support

Works seamlessly with your favorite third-party applications like Skype, Adobe FMLE, VLC media player, Wirecast and Quicktime.

Built to last

Like all Epiphan video grabber products, AV.io SDI is designed to be strong, durable and rugged enough for daily use (some of our products are even used in space!). AV.io SDI has robust, full-size connectors designed for reliable and repeated long-term use.

The AV.IO models have no drivers to install? How does it work then?

These products use USB Video Class (UVC) and USB Audio Class (UAC) drivers. These drivers come with the operating system, meaning there is no software for you to install and configure!

Since AV.io models have no driver software, what do I need to capture video content?

To capture video content with the AV.io models, you will need a software application that works with UVC hardware. Some such applications are native to certain operating systems, while most others need to be downloaded and installed from a third-party source. 

Help! My image appears reversed in my capture application!

This is just a visual quirk – image mirroring happens with most UVC-friendly applications. But don’t worry! All captured video content will appear correctly despite appearing reversed in your application!

There are black bars on either side of my captured video content. How do I get rid of these?

By default, AV.io models preserve the aspect ratio of your input signal by adding black bars to the sides or top and bottom of the frame if the application using the signal requests a frame size with a different aspect ratio. This aspect ratio preservation option can be disabled by using the AV.io Config tool.

Are there any configuration options at all with AV.io SDI?

AV.io Config allows users several basic configuration options. Users can enable/disable special capture frame sizes, select the audio pair for capture, set aspect ratio preservation, choose power-saving performance mode, and update firmware on their AV.io SDI device

What interface is needed for AV.io SDI?

AV.io SDI connects to your computer via USB. It works best with USB 3.0 (SuperSpeed), but can also work with reduced performance (and without audio capture) when plugged into a USB 2.0 port.
