VideoGhost Pro, VideoGhost Max

The Swiss army knife of image capture

Familiar with the standard VideoGhost? The VideoGhost Pro and VideoGhost Max are enhanced versions with control capabilities over Virtual COM and hardware COM. An external application can capture still images on-demand from the monitored DVI, HDMI, or VGA interface. The VideoGhost Pro/Max can act as a Mass-Storage device, a Virtual COM, or even as a classic RS-232 serial device. An external push-button accelerates standard operations, such as screen capture or mode switching. The VideoGhost Pro/Max are highly customizable solutions, delivered with source-code examples easing the integration process into other systems.

Features

VideoGhost Pro/Max - PC-side software

Virtual COM mode

The VideoGhost Pro and VideoGhost Max both feature a USB Virtual COM interface, meaning they can be accessed by any PC-side software application. The Virtual COM interface offers the following functionality:
  • send commands to the VideoGhost Pro/Max
  • read, write, and store the VideoGhost Pro/Max configuration
  • capture and transfer an image on-demand from the DVI/HDMI/VGA interface
  • retrieve an archived JPEG image
Example software is delivered with C# source code, demonstrating all features of the VideoGhost Pro/Max.

USB Flash Drive mode

Flash Drive mode is available just like in the standard VideoGhost. Recorded screenshots are stored in the JPEG format and may be accessed similarly to a digital camera. The video-logger will pop-up as a removable drive, containing captured screenshots as JPEG files. The files will contain embedded time and date information.

VideoGhost Pro/Max - Push button

Push button

The VideoGhost Pro/Max features an external push-button, allowing performing a quick on-demand screenshot, and accelerating switching between Flash Drive mode and Virtual COM mode.


Hardware COM interface

A true hardware COM interface is available with the VideoGhost Max. It offers the same features as the Virtual COM (with exception to transfering entire images). This allows an external device to control the VideoGhost Max, for example using the RS-232 protocol.
