[AG-TECH] Ospreys & FC2

Mediavoice is using the same config on Asus motherboards. We tend to 
stick with the Hauppauge capture cards as we've never had a problem with 
them, although I continue to search for a quad capture card that is 
trouble free and has four S-Vid ins.

The latest room config Mediavoice built uses a Colorgraphics Xentra GT4 
Quad display but we had to go to the PCI version to get acceptable 
performance out of the card. All four outputs on this card are OpenGL 
compliant which is important in the visualization work in which this 
group is engaged.
