AVerMedia is giving new meaning to the art of creating hot content or chill videos.

Its Mini PCI Express capture card is designed to capture high-quality video in extreme temperatures, from -40 degrees to 185 degrees Fahrenheit.

The CM313BW card, designed to capture video from SDI sources, is part of AVerMedia’s line of wide-temperature cards.

It also has the C352W card, which captures video from composite sources and the C353W for HDMI and VGA sources.

Many applications, including some industrial automation, in-vehicle operation and military, require these types of thermally robust products, according to AVerMedia.

More from AVerMedia’s press release:

Various tasks are often performed in harsh environmental conditions. AVerMedia’s new CM313BW card (like our existing C353W and C351W cards) is specifically designed to be thermally resilient for these extreme industrial applications. By being able to function perfectly in a very wide range of temperatures (-40°C ~ 85°C, or -40°F ~ 185°F) these cards ensure reliable and stable high-quality video capturing in extreme temperature conditions.

Convenient, Compact Form Factor

The compact form factor of the Mini PCI Express card fits perfectly into small-footprint embedded systems. These cards also consume less power, resulting in a more energy-efficient solution. These AVerMedia cards feature vibration-proof build quality and their locking holes are specifically designed for in-vehicle, military, and industrial applications.

Hardware H.264 Encoding Reduces Burden on CPUS

The existing C353W card and the new CM313BW cards come equipped with an advanced, built-in H.264 hardware encoder, enabling the system to encode and maintain high video quality, without impacting the CPU. This feature increases the system’s reliability. As a result, the C353W and CM313BW cards significantly reduce the performance drain on a system’s hardware and software, helping the system focus on other important tasks.

4-channel simultaneous capture

The existing C351W card features four parallel composite video input interfaces, allowing for more versatility within this compact card. With 4-channel input, the C351W can simultaneously capture up to four video channels at the highest performance levels, for great video quality and efficiency.
