Epiphan Systems Inc. markets, develops, manufactures and supports a line of video capture, streaming and recording products. Among their products are a family of high-resolution VGA, DVI, and HDMI frame grabbers (some with custom drivers, some UVC-based) and a series of professional AV streaming/recording systems with included video switching technology.
