Note 1. The PIXCI® EL1DB Frame Grabber's capture bandwidth is limited by the computer's PCI Express x1 bus. The bandwidth is sufficient for a single camera, but may not be sufficient for multiple cameras sharing a single PIXCI® EL1DB Frame Grabber. (The PCI Express x1 bus has, on most computers, an effective maximum bandwidth of approximately 190 MByte/sec.) Consider a PIXCI® E4DB frame grabber, using the PCI Express x4 bus, as an alternative.

Note 2. The PIXCI® ECB2 Frame Grabber's capture bandwidth is limited by the computer's ExpressCard/54 bus. The bandwidth is sufficient for a single camera, but may not be sufficient for multiple cameras sharing a single PIXCI® ECB2 Frame Grabber. (The ExpressCard bus has, on most computers, an effective maximum bandwidth of approximately 190 MByte/sec.)
