Conexant Fusion 878A

The Conexant Fusion 878A chip is a recent incarnation of the Brooktree Bt878A chip. The booktree Bt878A is successor to the well known Bt848. The Bt848 was designed by Brooktree, which is now Conexant. This chip is common on video capture cards and cctv cards.

Why do we mention this? Because this is the chip on the Pico PCI CCTV card. This is also a chip commonly used on many video capture devices, TV cards, and is supported by a wide range of video capture software. However, video capture software supporting Bt878A that is not designed for CCTV will likely only allow you to access one camera port at a time.
