Picolo Pro2: Standard acquisition for video surveillance
Picolo Pro2: Standard acquisition for video surveillance

Picolo Pro 2 is the leading PCI capture board specifically designed for video surveillance applications with multiple cameras. Picolo Pro 2 supports the acquisition of full resolution color images including the square-pixel resolution (640 x 480 or 768 x 576). Up to 4 composite video signals are captured directly through standard BNC inputs. The quick switching capability offers an optimized frame rate for all acquisition conditions. TTL I/O lines are provided for easing system integration.

  • Picolo series general features
  • Suitable for 4 cameras systems
  • Quick switching for superior frame rate
  • Highest image quality
  • Optimized for video surveillance
  • Software support:
    - DirectShow filters
    - MultiCam drivers


Quick switching
The multiple video inputs of the Picolo Pro 2 are sequentially acquired using a proprietary switching method. The resulting switching latency for unsynchronized cameras is never more than 33 ms in NTSC and 40 ms in PAL. This leads to the typical following performances.

NTSC configuration 1 camera 2 camera 3 camera 4 camera
Fields / Frames per second (per camera) 60 / 30 12 / 9 8 / 6 6 / 4
Fields / Frames per second (all cameras) 60 / 30 24 / 17 24 / 17 24 / 17
PAL configuration 1 camera 2 camera 3 camera 4 camera
Fields / Frames per second (per camera) 50 / 25 10 / 7 7 / 5 5 / 3
Fields / Frames per second (all cameras) 50 / 25 20 / 14 20 / 14 20 / 14



Connections
Picolo Pro 2 is fitted with four standard BNC connectors for ruggedized camera connection. An internal 16-pin header connector provides 13 general purpose input / output TTL lines. They may be used for triggering image capture and interfacing to alarm system.
