    realtime digitizer
  • grayscale capture in 16 shades (15 frames/s)
  • colour capture in 32 (12 frames/s) or 4096 colours (4 frames/s)
  • supports overscan
  • does not have video buffer - the digitized data is transfered directly to the Amiga memory using DMA
  • four BNC connectors - two setups can be selected by jumper
    • mode 1: two inputs (FBAS) and two outputs (passed through video signal for control purposes)
    • mode 2: one RGB input with sync
  • very sensitive on the quality of the video signal
  • PAL (1987) and NTSC (1989) versions
  • the PAL version was manufactured by Elan Design, author of the Invision Plus software
  • requires a hardware upgrade kit (a pal replacement and a jumper cut) in order to work in A3000s and A4000s
    Invision Plus software
  • seriously enhances the abilities of the card compared to the original Live! software
  • realtime effects (e.g. manipulation of colour register, fade out to black or white, wipes, strobes, looping) which can be attached to keys and mouse movements
  • effects can be combined (keys + mouse)
  • supports Anim-5 format
  • can capture sequences as large as the amount of free memory
  • multiple capture buffers
