[AG-TECH] Recording using hardware encoder card

We're setting up a room node with 4 cameras and we'd like to be able
to record the AG sessions (and also just local events) we're running.
As I understand it, programmes such as AGVCR record a AG session using
the encoded video stream, which may be (far) lower in quality
than the source material. Is there any way to record the local stream
at the highest quality (i.e. as it comes into the capture server)
within AG ?.
If not, would it be possible to use a card such as the Picolo U4
H.264 ? (http://www.euresys.com/Products/picolo/PicoloU4H264.asp), as
that (claims) to allow access to both the encoded and raw version
of each video channel. Presumably AG could use one stream and the other stream could go straight to disc. Or is it not that simple ?.
