Acquisition Cards

We provide end users the option of purchasing Cognitech Approved Capture Cards for data acquisition using our software. Cognitech supports 4 different capture cards for use with Cognitech Software. By purchasing these capture cards and using them with Cognitech TriSuite, you will gain access to special recording capabilties such as loseless compression using COG file format. This feature is not available for use outside of Cognitech TriSuite even with a supported capture card and requires Cognitech Software.

We currently offer 4 capture cards

Forensic acquisition devices are fully integrated within Cognitech’s forensic video Tri-Suite14 software and VIVA PRO14 software.  The devices do not require any 3rd party software to be used with TriSuite.
