Can I get 3 FPS at 1024 by 768? Also what runs on the Computer side of the USB port? Are the frames in an AVI file or something simular?


The Epiphan VGA2USB LR Edition can support capturing up to 30 FPS at 1024x768 resolution and can even do the same at 1280x1024. The capture unit connects with a standard USB A to USB mini B cable. The adapter uses the Epiphan software to capture and view the video signals. It will capture video to an AVI file, or can do it as still images to BMPs, PNGs or JPGs.
