Supermac Spigotpower AV
(Manf. Part # DV1630)

This is a compression nubus board to enhance the AV circuitry of the AV Quadras/PPC. Through the use of a DAV connector, it allows your existing hardware to capture and play back full-screen, full motion video at a fraction of the cost of similar video capture set-ups.
SpigotPower AV vs. AV MacIntosh:
Most AV MacIntosh models can only capture at up to 30fps in a 160x120 window, some (660av) can't do 30 fps at all, regardless of window size. The AV MAcIntosh cpus can only do up to 1-5 fps at a full 640x480. SpigotPower AV can do 30fps at full screen size, 640x480.

SpigotPower AV brings true video power to your Macintosh Quadra AV or PowerMac AV computer. By linking the high-performance, hardware-based JPEG compression of SpigPower AV with the built-in audio/video capabilities of the AV Macintosh, SpigotPower AV enables Macintosh AV computers to finally realize their full video potential, bringing high-quality and affordable video and CD-ROM production to the desktop. Building upon the technology of the revolutionary VideoSpigot, SpigotPower AV delivers the next generation of digital video. SpigotPower AV captures full-screen video at up to 30 frames/60 fields per second with full 24-bit color, delivering unmatched image quality for video that is compressed with Cinepak for CD-ROM authoring and multimedia presentations.
