"Very prompt delivery and excellent product."

Overview

Note: Epiphan products are subject to special return/warranty policies. See below for more details.

The VGA to USB Video Grabber is a compact external VGA signal grabber which can capture and record almost any VGA source. These sources include VGA outputs on Windows-based PC's, Macintosh OSX, Unix, embedded systems, medical devices, lab or scientific equipment, and more.

How It Works

VGA2USB Connection Diagram

If you have a system without a designated monitor, the VGA to USB Video Grabber can let you watch and replay the video output later. You can also use this to perform quality control tests on your computer systems. Any system which requires the acquisition of VGA images are supported.

The device itself is truly compact being only about the size of a box of paper clips and is bus powered. Hardware and software that come in the package make it possible to view captured data in real time, save captured images to a disk, copy captured images to a clipboard, or set up a periodical "save" command to capture images to a disk automatically.

Pros: Very easy to use on a mac. Recognized as a camera by all apps that use quicktime components.I also loved the fact that it's so small and USB powered. Makes it very easy to take with me to capture presenter screens at conferences and events.

Cons: The lower frame rates at higher resolutions combined with the interlaced sampling makes any moving images look pretty jagged. None of my presenters wanted to lower their resolutions to 640x480, so I need something better with progressive sampling and higher frame rates.

Other: Though this device does what it says, I opted to return it to upgrade to the Epiphan VGA2PCIe card. It was a tough decision between that and the similarly priced VGA2USB LR. We'll see how that goes.

An excellent framegrabber

Pros: This device has worked flawlessly for me. I use it to record presentations (please note, audio is recorded through a mic / mixer as this device doesn't handle audio). It is lightweight, appears to be rugged (i've treated it like gold, so i don't really know how rugged it is). I've used it to record all platforms, mac, linux and windows without a problem. The linux driver requires somebody to know linux well to get it to work, but windows usage is very easy.

Cons: none

Other:

Used for the Big Show.

Pros: Does what is says it does. Easy to use. If you record the session, keep the file size a little smaller than the recommended playback size. It is true that most players will not accept a large file size. I use the device to capture presentations that were also shared over Live Meeting. The set up was three computers going through a KVM. The KVM output went through a Amp/Splitter with the main output going to a projecter and the other to the VGA2USB device. The computer connected to the VGA2USB device was recording the session via the provided software and the recording window was shared to the viewing audience via Live Meeting. Worked like a charm.

Easy Setup, Great Software

This device installs easily, the software is a pleasure to use, and although the price is somewhat high, it works as advertised, and with style; these are things that I can't say for some of the cheaper products out there for this task.
