The SGI O2 workstation has a multimedia card option, fitted in the right hand side rear slot.
Two versions of these are available,
- An audio only card which is of no use for a webcam as there is no video interface.
- An audio and video capture capture card. This is the card required for the webcam description.
It supports video input via the analogue input on a phono connector, or the O2 camera via the
SGI specific interface. This looks like a SCSI-3 connector but only supports the the O2 camera.
The camera is not particularly good image quality, but good enough for a simple webcam. I have not tried the
webcam capture scripts with a video (phono) input.
I believe there is a FireWire PCI card option available, but it is not cheap.
