Interfacing with external video sources

Currently, the Visual Cortex can do input decoding for one camera or video input without the need of genlock synchronization. If you need 2 or more cameras, and your camera supports genlock input, you can use one of the composite outputs of Visual Cortex as a genlock signal to your camera. Please make sure any camera you are using can send/receive NTSC/480i or PAL/576i.

Alternately, multiple asynchronous feeds could be mixed or switched externally in a video mixer and then the mixer’s output is passed on to Visual Cortex’s input decoder section for additional in-system signal combining and processing.

We are actively developing a new time base corrector module which will greatly simplify direct interfacing with multiple input feeds.
