Foresight Imaging

The AccuStream 1000 is the next generation, high resolution video acquisition board from Foresight Imaging. It is specifically designed for high performance medical imaging and defense imaging applications. Video formats supported include HDMI, DVI-D, RGBHV analog, monochrome, and SDI (only on Accustream 1000 SDI). Resolution is up to 4 megapixels and includes up to 1080p and 1920 x 1200 x 60 Hz. All video formats are supported including all the non-standard, high resolution formats common in monochrome medical imaging applications such as fluoroscopy and angiography. The AccuStream 1000 provides extreme data performance with its PCI Express 2.0 x4 interface for 1.3 GB of sustained data transfers to support demanding high resolution video streaming applications including high resolution video at 60 fps. For current customers, their software investment is protected as the AccuStream 1000 uses the same IDEA software development kit and includes extensive example programs with source code as well as several programming interface options.


AccuStream 1000 is supported by Auto-SYNC™, Foresight Imaging’s flagship automatic configuration software. Auto-SYNC ensures quick and simple installation and image capture by automatically configuring AccuStream 1000 to the incoming standard or non-standard video signal. Auto-SYNC automatically analyzes the incoming video signal and builds a configuration file. Use the configuration file as created or utilize the Auto-SYNC Wizard for simple, step-by-step video adjustments. AccuStream 1000 is supported by the IDEA (Imaging Development Environment for Applications) software development kit. By using IDEA, developers have the confidence of knowing that they can write their applications once and have support built-in for the entire AccuStream Series. A WDM driver and a TWAIN driver are included to further simplify development and use of AccuStream 1000. With IDEA, ActiveX controls are provided to facilitate easy development with Visual Basic, Visual C++, and Visual J++. Extensive example programs (with source code) are provided with IDEA. Functions of the example programs include triggered acquisition, video streaming to AVI files, integration with Pegasus Imaging compression for streaming, overlays, and much more. Auto-SYNC, IDEA, example programs, and drivers are provided free of charge with each AccuStream 1000.


AccuStream 1000 is ideal for any application requiring high resolution and high performance imaging. Additionally, with all popular video formats supported, AccuStream 1000 can be used for virtually any video aquisition application.
