Hi,

I want to capture two analoge source at the same time.
(2 X analog PAL or NTSC)
Is it possible to capture multiple analog sources from a single DFG/1394-1e converter?
Or can I connect 2 DFG/1394-1e converters to a single computer at the same time?

I don't want to 'switch' between the streams, but capture them simultaniously....

thnx Pjotr

Pjotr,



Is it possible to capture multiple analog sources from a single DFG/1394-1e converter?

No, is is not, because there is only one digitizer in the DFG/1394-1. The input channels are multiplexed to this digitzer, so you can use them only in sequence.


Or can I connect 2 DFG/1394-1e converters to a single computer at the same time?

This is the correct way. You can switch between the live displays or display both parallel. And you can capture simultanously. Please keep in mind, that the cameras and thus the video streams are not synchronized.
