Primary Capture Device

This is an option for capturing video via Composite cables, as well as Component, HDMI or SDI. It’s portable, easy to use, and works great with Sportscode. Purchasing a second as a backup is highly encouraged. The Composite cables are not included, so be sure to purchase some here. Keep in mind that some video camera require proprietary cords.

The Express requires a specific driver for use with Sportscode. Click here for setup information.
