MSRP $299.00


The BG-CSA is a 3G/HD/SD-SDI capture device. When you need to record or stream any SDI source (like video camera or video mixer output) on your PC – this device will do the job.

It supports any resolutions up to 1080P at 60fps on USB 3.0/3.1 ports. Built-in scaler gives you more flexibility for the capturing video format. Large volume image buffer ensures smooth uninterrupted video capture.

Using 3.5mm stereo audio input you can switch to the external mic or other audio signal and embed it into the video stream. All aluminum housing and power from USB port (no additional power adapter required) adds durability and portability to our setup.

If you need to set up additional local monitor or extend/split input there is an SDI loop-out port which will re-clock and mirror original signal.
