Hi Everyone,

To compensate for less volunteers at our church over the summer, we will be using some standard definition PTZ cameras, instead of manually operating them at the tripod. We already have one BMD Intensity Pro card with composite input, however we do not have the budget to buy a second one at this time. I have been given some older capture equipment, mostly Matrox Digimix and Osprey 100 (not 'e' model). Both of these cards are PCI (not pci-e). Just wondering if anyone has had success using any of these with vMix?

If these are not supported, could anyone recommend the cheapest, most reliable standard definition capture device for vMix? I'm a bit skeptical buying the "ezcap" USB style devices as I have had issues with ones in the past. I heard the "ezcap.tv" branded ones are the most reliable, however they seem to be sold out on their website.

I seem to remember that there's a Windows 7 driver for the Osprey 100 PCI card. I've certainly used one in an older PC (with vMix) in the past, but I've a feeling there may not be a driver for Windows 10.
