Discover Video Launches Captiva Video Capture System

Discover Video today announced Captiva, a new video capture tool for Low Cost, High Definition video webcasting and streaming. Captiva allows anyone to instantly stream, capture, and record live HD, SD, and computer graphics video from a laptop or desktop

Wallingford, CT(27 Jun 2013)

Discover Video today announced Captiva, a new video capture tool for Low Cost, High Definition video webcasting and streaming. Captiva allows anyone 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 provides incredible performance, quality, and unrivaled simplicity. 

The Captiva USB 3.0 capture devices allow the use of a portable laptop rather than a full desktop machine for live webcasting; and one device replaces two PCIe cards or USB input devices. Even when streaming 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 HDMI/HDSDI to VGA, DVI, and composite 

“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.” said Rich Mavrogeanes, president and CEO of Discover Video. “No more cracking the lid and installing PCIe cards in PCs. Now you can do true HD streaming from a laptop.”

Captiva key features include: 

  1. Stream or capture Video/VGA/DVI from your laptop or desktop
  2. USB 3.0 simple set-up and operation
  3. Automatic input detection
  4. Includes Discover Video Multimedia Encoder Software (DVME)
  5. Compact, portable design
  6. Dual input ports for 2 camera shoot or video/VGA presentation
  7. Available in 3 models

- 2 channel HD HDMI / Component / DVI / VGA / Composite
- 2 channel HD HDMI / Component / DVI / VGA + SD
- 1 channel all-in-one SDI / DVI / VGA/ HDMI / Component / Composite

Captiva starts at $995.   It is available from Discover Video and our network of certified resellers.
