Latest Technology Adds Audio to Graphics Interface to Serve Growing Needs for Educational and Corporate Customers

PLANO, Texas, -- ViewCast Corporation (OTCBB: VCST) today made available its new Osprey® 820e video capture card that integrates audio with a traditional graphics interface - an industry first. The ability to integrate both audio and video with a traditional graphics interface makes this card ideal for lecture capture.

"I believe the Osprey 820e is the first of its kind in the industry," said John Hammock, President and CEO of ViewCast, a developer of industry-leading solutions that help companies deliver video to broadband and mobile networks. "This card is an ideal solution for lecture capture. Educators and enterprises no longer need multiple cards and multiple drivers to capture and stream lectures and slide presentations simultaneously. We expect a strong reaction from those growing segments and for the product to achieve success on a global scale," he added.

The Osprey 820e provides the ability to ingest video along with a computer interface eliminating the need for two separate cards and multiple drivers. This dual input card can ingest SD or HD analog video as well as VGA, HDMI and DVI. The Osprey 820e also expands the ViewCast digital capture card line by enabling a broader range of cameras to capture digital video.

"With the introduction of the Osprey 820e, Windows and Linux drivers are immediately available. This shows our commitment to providing our partners with complete solutions towards building their own products," said Adrian Giuhat, Senior Vice President of Product Development and CTO of ViewCast.

This half-length board can process large amounts of video data across two inputs. The Osprey 820e also comes standard with the ViewCast SimulStream® driver. This driver enhancement enables the ability to feed multiple encoding applications at the same time. SimulStream can be used with a variety of available streaming formats to easily create and manage live streams and create multiple streams of the same type with completely independent settings for sizing, scaling, logos and bit rates plus logo overlays with dynamic positioning.
