video capture board

An expansion card that provides inputs and outputs for analog and digital video. It is used to link video cameras, camcorders and tape decks to the computer for editing. Analog video inputs are converted to digital YUV or RGB color spaces for processing and converted back to analog formats for analog destinations. Capture boards that support SDI connections are used for high-end video editing. See SDI.
