ImpactVCB is a low cost family of video capture boards which can be used as the heart of a live video display, real time video capture, streaming video or video conferencing solution.

The ImpactVCB board provides image capture from a desktop CCD camera or other analog input. Impact VCB board is a small 1/3 height PCI board based on the Conexant 878A video digitizer chip. It requires a bus-master PCI slot. A VGA card with Direct Draw 3 (or later) capability is required for Live Display. Incoming image is digitized using high quality 4:2:2 video sampling and displayed in a window on the PC's VGA screen. The image is transmitted directly by the ImpactVCB into main system memory or the memory of the VGA adapter for high performance results.

4* video capture card
Reviewed by Anonymous on 05/10/2006
This card was supported by a very poor driver. However the workaround is to install the card, install the driver, go to sourceforge and get the open source driver for the chipset on the card and install it over the top of the supplied driver. This allows you to save the driver settings for the card and camera. Note that there is a hard coded timeout in MS XP that you have to wait for. Once it gives up trying, you can access the camera. It may be that Haupauge have released a later driver taht isn't broken but don't hold your breath.
