DVI2USB3.0 Form Factor, Packaging and Interfaces

About the size of a deck of cards, the DVI2USB 3.0’s solid casing is made entirely of aluminum.

Leveraging the speed of USB 3.0 enables a compression free capture at 60 frames per second regardless of video content from virtually any DVI, VGA, or HDMI source.

Using Epiphan or 3 party applications, DVI2USB 3.0 can then broadcast these images over public, private or broadband wireless networks, enabling remote diagnosis of medical, military, and other situations in which a precise image and stable frame rate is required for accurate decision-making.

No software or hardware modifications need to be performed on the source device, which makes the DVI2USB 3.0 one of the most secure and reliable solutions for the capture of high resolution imagery. And the DVI2USB 3.0 is portable and small enough to fit into a shirt pocket, making it easy to transport between different locations and integrate into existing systems.
