The HD1 is the high definition version of PiCapture, a unique video capture solution that enables all of the video processing capability of the Raspberry Pi Graphics Processing Unit (GPU). Click here for example videos
PiCapture HD1 captures high-definition progressive video from digital (HDMI/DVI), analog (YPbPr Component), and Computer (RGB) sources at 480p, 720p, and 1080p resolutions.
By using the Raspberry Pi CSI-2 camera interface and providing complete camera emulation, all of the video encoding and management capabilities of the Raspberry Pi are usable with any compatible video source. In addition, applications that require large amounts of Raspberry Pi resources (e.g. real-time image processing) are now enabled since USB capture devices are not required.
The PiCapture board is compatible with the “HAT” form factor and plugs directly into I/O headers of the Raspberry Pi. Standoffs and screws are supplied for securely mounting to the PiCapture to the Raspberry Pi as shown above. A ribbon cable connects to the CSI-2 camera interface.
Power is provided through the Raspberry Pi, with a standard 5V AC Adapter. Pass-through connection headers are provided for the I/O headers so that additional devices may be attached.
This example was captured from a 1080p 60fps source using HDMI:
High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) is a form of digital copy protection to prevent copying of digital audio and video content as it travels across connections. An HDCP compliant source with HDCP protected material cannot be recorded on PiCapture using the HDMI interface, and we recommend using component video for this material.
