DVMECaptiva allows you to instantly stream, capture, and record live HD, SD, and computer graphics video from a laptop or desktop computer using only one USB 3.0 port. Far more cost effective than appliance-based solutions, Captiva gives you incredible performance, quality, and unrivaled simplicity.

No Drama

When doing a live video stream, you can't have technical drama. If you have tried other low cost USB 3.0 devices, you'll be pleasantly surprised that the Captiva works perfectly without driver and reliability issues. No more cracking the lid and installing PCIe cards in PCs, and now you can do true HD streaming from a laptop.

Self Contained
Captiva is powered from the USB 3.0 interface directly without connecting to heavy power adapters, making it very easy to carry. You can do a live dual-channel video shoot with equipment you carry in just a briefcase.

Professional Processing
You can scale or clip the HD and SD input signals, to customize the video to fit your requirements and bring a more personalized experience. Captiva lets you adjust colors, image contrast, brightness, color saturation, hue and Gamma. The brightness and contrast of R, G, B can be set separately, and it provides motion-adaptive de-interlacing. The moving image will have not the phenomenon of trailing, which ensures a clearer video. Captiva uses 10-bit AD converter to produce great quality, and the image details are colorful with a high signal-to-noise ratio which reduces the noise and high frequency color edge artifacts. And DVME give you advanced features like Chroma key, watermarks, and titles.

Captiva is compatible with Discover Video's award-winning DVME and with most 3rd party encoders that support standard Windows DirectShow. 

The Captiva USB 3.0 capture devices allow you to use a portable laptop rather than a full desktop machine for your live webcasting, and one device replaces two PCIe cards or USB input devices. Even when you stream at SD rates, you no longer need to purchase or carry extra media interface converters because Captiva accepts just about any video interface you will encounter, from HDSDI to VGA, DVI, and composite.
For single channel SD video only Captiva works on existing USB 2.0 ports too.
