On backorder
Epiphan DVI2USB™ is the only external, dual-mode (VGA & DVI) frame grabber that can capture and broadcast diagnostic-quality images and videos from any device with a monitor and transfer to a USB port on another computer. No peripheral component interface (PCI) is required. This product is designed specifically for applications that require the support of a DVI/VGA/HDMI input.

• Key Features
Dual mode VGA and DVI capture card
Supports resolutions up to 1920x1200
Able to capture non-protected video from HDMI sources with adapter


DVI2USB uses the ubiquitous and inexpensive USB port to capture output from virtually any VGA or DVI source—such as a Windows PC, a Macintosh OSX, a Unix machine, an embedded system, a medical device, scientific or lab equipment, and more. It then broadcasts these images over public, private or broadband wireless networks, enabling remote diagnosis of medical, military, and other situations in which a precise image is required for accurate decision-making.

The product provides a simple, lightweight and rapid means of conveying mission-critical VGA and DVI images without degradation due to traditional methods of compression. DVI2USB also enables users to:
  • Control the trade-off between image quality and image refresh rate, making it a flexible solution for a variety of applications
  • Print or record the captured image with the touch of a button using Epiphan's VGA Printer or VGA Recorder products
As a compact external device, DVI2USB is easy to use and to transport. About the size of a small paperback book, it is easily plugged in making it simple to set-up for any individual with basic knowledge of computers.

The product ships complete with all required hardware and connectivity and a power supply. Software development kits are also available for specialized applications.

VGA Capture

In order for the DVI2USB to capture a VGA signal, the VGA-to-DVI adapter must be connected to the DVI port of the DVI2USB (included with DVI2USB).

DVI Capture

DVI2USB is capable of capturing any single-link DVI signal (up to 1920x1200). If you require dual-link DVI capture or support for resolutions above 1920x1200, you need DVI2USB DUO.

HDMI Capture

HDMI capture is possible using a HDMI to DVI adapter (purchased separately). The audio stream will not be captured during HDMI capture. Furthermore, HDCP or copy-protected content cannot be captured using DVI2USB.
