Numato Opsis is an open (Open Source) videoplatform based on the FPGAXlinx Spartan-6 S6LX45Tfor operators of Webcams and artists. It has256 MB of RAM DDR3-1600. The board was equipped with4 HDMI terminals(2 inputs / 2 outputs),2 x Display Port(in / out), connectorUSB type BandmicroUSB, portGigabit Ethernetanda microSD slot. Board gives users full control over the video, allowing everything from capturing conference footage in real-time to experimental visual art. It even allows a general study of the video and pictures based on FPGA.
Opsis is an ideal device for software capturing videoHDMI2USB.tv that provides safe access from any computer. It provides direct provision of video streams in real time on a PC via USB 2.0 or by sending it across the Gigabit Ethenetnetwork.
The figure below shows an example connection scenario. The HDMI output from the laptop is transferred to Opsis, which redirects the image to an external monitor and simultaneously provides image capture to other computers via USB 2.0 interface. HDMI2USB.tv emulates a standard webcam UVC, allowing any video program such as Skype, Google Hangouts or WebRTC, for transferring them to an audience online.
