Capture cards and computer screen

Hi all

 

What are the limitations regarding the "computer screen" feature? 

resolutions? number of screens? 

Would it be possible to add 2 screens from 1 computer, if there for instance is 2 detected screens in display properties?

maybe it doesnt work that way at all, but its a long shot.

 

The other way is capture card, any news on that scene? 

 

Im looking to get 12 inputs into 3 machines, so 4 inputs on each.

been looking at the datapath vision card with 2 dvi in.

Since we are not latency sensitive at this particular job, maybe there is another card that can do the same job but for a cheaper price tag?

 

 

grateful for any help,

 

cheers,

Robert

Hi all

Pretty sure the resolution limit is determined by the source hardware and the VNC server software on that hardware.

 

number of screens? 

 

multiple screens are supported, again, the server software chosen provides the limits.

 

Would it be possible to add 2 screens from 1 computer,

 

Yes.

 

if there for instance is 2 detected screens in display properties?

With the proper motherboard, two DataPatch VisionRGB E2 will work.

We have successfully tested three of those cards with WATCHOUT.

Latency per se is not so much an issue with Remote Computer (VNC).

Frame rate is. It is not for full motion content. Great for static screens.
