Specialized hardware for analog or SDI signals creation:
Video Card - you can start using the software with almost EVERY middle class video card, but in order to receive an interlaced signal with a good broadcast quality you must use a special model of a video card produced from Matrox. You will receive an analog video signal in an s-video or composite format. The sound signal is received from your sound card which may be one built in a MB or external sound card.
Note that not ALL models DeckLink card work with our software due to the constant changes made from the company DeckLink. If you have already a DeckLink card you may send us its part number and ask if it is possible to use it with the DV Play software.
