BT878a PCI Capture Card Driver Page
There are many PCI Video Capture Cards available today which use the Connexant BT878 - 878a chipset for processing the
video streams fed into them.
All Camsecure cards are high quality pre-tested units which we provide help and support for. But what if you have bought one
of these cards elsewhere and dont want to use the software that comes with it, or have lost the disk, or bought it second
hand and dont have any drivers for it anyway? What you need is a Windows PCI Capture Card Driver.
Well we have the answer. We have a driver for 4 input pci capture cards using the connexant BT878 - 878a chip and we also
have a driver for 8 input pci capture cards using the BT878 - 878a chips. This driver will allow you to use the card with Active
Webcam which is a superb webcam program providing recording, motion detection,video streaming....everything you need in
a webcam/CCTV software package. the driver also allows other webcam software access to the card but there may be
restrictions on how many channels can be selected at once with other webcam programs (due to the software itself..not the
So how can you tell if this driver will work? Well it has worked on 100% of all cards we have dealt with so far using the BT878
- 878a chip set even a couple of rare cards manufactured in Germany. Basically if your card looks like or very similar to either
of the two shown here its 99% sure to work. Usually 4 x input cards have a single BT878 - BT878a chip to handle the 4
channels and the 8 way cards have one large chip then 8 x BT878 - BT878a chips - one for each channel. If your card looks
similar to either of these (BNC or Phono inputs) then the chances are these drivers will work with them.
The drivers are supplied on a CD with full step by step instructions on how to install them and we have included copies of the
CCTV software usually included with the cards too in case you have lost yours or just want to experiment e.g. Pico 2000 and
the 16 channel software for using 1 or 2 x 8 channel cards. We have also included a trial version of Active Webcam so you
can check it out for yourself and lots of utility programs to use with IP cameras and Webcams.
By using our PCI Capture Card Driver you are now no longer restricted to using the software that was provided with your
original card.....you can use your favourite webcam software or invest in the best webcam software around - Active Webcam.
Our CD contains all the drivers for BT878a cards in 4 way single chip and 8 way 8 chip for Windows WDM and also includes
the software you usually receive with these cards e.g. Pico 2000, Peaque and DVR NET for 4 channel single chip, 4 channel
4 chip and 8 channel 8 chip cards. Full instructions and the software user manuals are also included with the CD. However
no guaranteee can be given that this software or drivers will work with a card that wasn not purchased from Camsecure.
